Frequency response

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The frequency response of a system is a measurement that indicates how a system responds to different input frequencies; it is commonly used to characterize physical systems during their design, testing, and use. This entry first describes how the frequency response of a system is measured in practice. It then focuses on voice production, specifically the frequency response of the vocal tract and the physiology of how the ear analyzes the frequency content of incoming sounds.
