There are many topics (Q) in acoustics that can be hard to learn just from a textbook introduction. "What is the cepstrum?" "How do you calculate a convolution?" Sometimes a better explanation (A) to these and other topics can come from slightly unconventional approaches.
The Acoustical Society of Japan, through the Students and Young Researchers Forum, is compiling an Introductory Encyclopedia of Acoustics to reach out and help students and researchers new to the field of acoustics.
We will be holding an introduction to this project in the upcoming Beginners Seminar during the Spring 2013 meeting of the Acoustical Society of Japan. Besides introducing this project, we will hold a discussion session and will be taking suggestions for the next Q's to be getting their A's on the encyclopedia.
