DEPARTMENT COLLOQUIUM<br>Physics of Hearing

340 West Hall

Our exquisite sense of hearing has fascinated physicists for more than a century. It has been well established that hearing is an active, energy consuming, non-linear process. Major experimental progress over the last decade now allows detailed comparison between theory and experiment. The talk will review the application of dynamical systems theory to active hearing as well as experimental tests.
