One of the key underlying technologies of immersive virtual reality (VR) is 3-D sound for computers. This text provides the reader with an understanding of the communication chain between source and listener, and how important issues in psychoacoustics and engineering interact. It covers components of spatial auditory displays, psychoacoustics of spatial hearing, what sounds are appropriate to spatialize, applications to human-machine interfaces (including virtual reality and multimedia) and future directions.
