Perry is a solid guy. Get Bill Hartmann's book, from AIP press. (at)book{Hartmann97 ,author={Hartmann, William M.} ,title={Signals, Sound, and Sensation} ,year={1997} ,publisher={AIP Press} ,address={American Institute of Physics, Woodbury, NY} ,note_={} } He is into music, and a lot of other things as well. And he understands Psychophysics. Jont -- Jont B. Allen AT&T Labs-Research, Shannon Laboratory, E161 180 Park Ave., Florham Park NJ, 07932-0971 973/360-8545voice, x7111fax,
