  The Acoustic Theory of Speech Production
Acoustic speech output in humans and many nonhuman species is commonly considered to result from a combination of a source of sound energy (e.g.
In this model the source of acoustic energy is at the larynx – the supralaryngeal vocal tract serves as a variable acoustic filter whose shape determines the phonetic quality of the sound (Fant, 1960).
Formants are those frequencies at which local energy maxima are sustained by the supralaryngeal vocal tract and are determined, in part, by the overall shape, length and volume of the vocal tract.

  Theory - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
For a given body of theory to be considered part of established knowledge, it is usually necessary for the theory to characterize a critical experiment, that is, an experimental result which cannot be predicted by any established theory.
Unfortunately, the usage of the term is muddled by cases such as string theory and "theories of everything," each probably better characterized at present as a bundle of competing hypotheses for a protoscience.
In the humanities, theory is often used as an abbreviation for critical theory or literary theory, referring to continental philosophy's aesthetics or its attempts to understand the structure of society and to conceptualize alternatives.

 Theory: Definition and Links by Encyclopedian.com - All about Theory
In mathematical logic, "theory" is the term for a set of well-formed formulae consisting of certain axioms and all theorems provable from said axioms.
There are two types of theories; a supposition which is not backed by observation is known as a conjecture, and if backed by observation it is a hypothesis.
A theory is also different from a physical law in that the former is a model of reality whereas the latter is a statement of what has been observed.

 Estimating formation stress using borehole monopole and cross-dipole acoustic measurements: theory and method - US ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Acoustic monopole/dipole well logging instruments are used, among other purposes, for making measurements related to the shear propagation velocity and the compressional propagation velocity of earth formations penetrated by a wellbore.
The arrival of the acoustic energy at the successively positioned receivers is detected to trigger electrical circuits in the tool which function to ascertain a characteristic of the formation from the pulse of acoustic energy traveling the predetermined distance between the array receivers.
borehole acoustic dipole: an acoustic wave that propagates along the borehole and whose associated particle motion (e.g., polarization) is primarily in one direction that is perpendicular to the borehole.

The second segment comprises an acoustic transducer on a Transceiver which is normally temporarily installed on the vessel - or on a Tow Fish.
A number of (at least three but typically four) acoustic transducers are fitted in a triangle or a rectangle on the lower part of the vessel.
USBL principles are very similar to SBL principles (in which an array of acoustic transducers is deployed on the surface vessel) except that the transducers are all built into a single transceiver assembly - or the array of transducers is replaced by an array of transducer elements in a single transceiver assembly.

 The Dallas Police Department's Channel 1 Dictabelts: The Chain of Possession
The acoustics evidence is central to the question of whether or not President Kennedy was killed as the result of a conspiracy.
If, as this paper suggests, the most fundamental aspect of that acoustics evidence – the authenticity of the police radio recordings – is questionable, then the very foundation upon which the question of conspiracy is based is unreliable.
If that were to be proven, the acoustics evidence – officially, the only basis for a conclusion of conspiracy in the assassination of President Kennedy – would again become a live issue.

Abstract: I propose the Klein-Gordon differential operator, from electromagnetics, as a basis for acoustic wave studies in variable-density media.
A change of the dependent variable in the acoustic variable-density wave equation reveals it to be essentially the simpler Klein-Gordon equation, in disguise.
Because it may be analyzed for constant-coefficient cases, the Klein-Gordon differential equation affords an attractive analytical setting for investigating the behavior of waves and rays.
