Acoustics is important for planning of rooms for musical or speech presentations, such as theaters, concert halls, and lecture rooms. Today a computer aided simulation of acoustical behavior inside closed rooms is possible. There exists a variety of simulation algorithms which can be classified into two groups: wave-based and geometric approaches. The former numerically solve the wave equation. Geometrical acoustics ...
