Abstract: Wave eld synthesis enables acoustic control in a listening area by systematic regulation of loud- speaker signals on its boundary. This chapter starts with an overview including the history of wave eld synthesis and some exemplary installations. Next, the theoretic fundamentals of wave eld synthesis are detailed. Technical implementations demand drastic simpli cations of the theoretical core, which come along with restrictions of the acoustic control as well as with synthesis errors. Simpli cations, resulting synthesis errors as well as the working principles of compensation methods and their e ects on the wave eld are extensively discussed. Finally, the current state of research and development is addressed.
