Math Fundamentals for Audio uniquely complements many popular textbooks on the recording arts and audio engineering with its fresh and thorough presentation of essential mathematical concepts. In this handbook Leslie Gaston-Bird applies principles from algebra, geometry, trigonometry and even calculus to concepts such as Ohm’s law, delays, impedance, bandwidth and decibels. This concise book offers a foundation for connecting mathematics with modern software tools for digital audio.
Leslie Gaston-Bird is a classically-trained pianist and audio engineer. She holds an M.S. in Recording Arts from the University of Colorado Denver (2003) and an A.S. Audio Technology (1989) and B.A. Telecommunications from Indiana University, Bloomington. In 1991 she began working at NPR in Washington, D.C. as Broadcast/Recording Technician. She was among the first to contribute to their early digital audio implementation. In 1995 she moved to Denver to serve as the Audio Systems Manager for Colorado Public Radio, and during that time also served as the principal engineer for the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
