Here's how the human voice has been broken into its elements

July 27, 2016

Most recently, scientists dealing with the human voice have taken a novel view of the human voice from the perspective of voice production. The vitality of this new science is evidenced by five issued US patents.

World Scientific's latest book Elements of Human Voice captures this novel view, which has been established through the analysis of large amount of human voice data, especially simultaneously acquired voice signals and electroglottograph signals. This view has also been established through a thorough investigation of various theories of voice production.

This unique book lays out the new theory and new mathematical models of human voice, and its applications in speech and voice technology. Its contents encompass the physics and physiology of voice production, parametrical representations of voice signals, and various technology applications. Mathematical tools pertinent to quantitative descriptions of human voice are explained.

Authored by Julian Chen from Columbia University, Elements of Human Voice retails for US$114/ £95 at major bookstores including Amazon, Barnes Noble, amongst others.

It's 2020 and times are tough. Maybe some of us are learning about social distancing the hard way. Maybe we just are all a little anxious. No matter what, we could probably use a friend. But what is a friend, exactly? And why do we need them so much? This week host Bethany Brookshire speaks with Lydia Denworth, author of the new book "Friendship: The Evolution, Biology, and Extraordinary Power of Life's Fundamental Bond". This episode is hosted by Bethany Brookshire, science writer from Science News.

Space
One of the most consistent questions we get at the show is from parents who want to know which episodes are kid-friendly and which aren't. So today, we're releasing a separate feed, Radiolab for Kids. To kick it off, we're rerunning an all-time favorite episode: Space. In the 60's, space exploration was an American obsession. This hour, we chart the path from romance to increasing cynicism. We begin with Ann Druyan, widow of Carl Sagan, with a story about the Voyager expedition, true love, and a golden record that travels through space. And astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson explains the Coepernican Principle, and just how insignificant we are. Support Radiolab today at Radiolab.org/donate.
