I read some books to learn about the perception of sound.
What I found confusing are the statements about the
perception of pitch. Some books say that for pure tones,
frequency == pitch. Others say pitch is a function of many
parameters, which is not known generally.
Sometimes they say pitch is proportional to the logarithm of
frequency. What is true? What is not?

        Thanks in advance,
