Many thanks are extended to Prof. Philip Nelson of ISVR for hosting Sparrow during his 1998 sabbatical leave and greatly influencing the content of this course. Many thanks also to Durand Begault of NASA Ames and San Jose State University for (1.) writing his book 3-D Sound for Virtual Reality and Multimedia and (2.) providing the NASA Technical Memorandum reprint of that book used extensively in the class. Sparrow also appreciates the advice and contributions of several Penn State faculty who sat in on portions of the class: Jiri Tichy, Doug Mast, and Courtney Burroughs.
