The Virtual Acoustics course will be run in remote mode. The lectures will be in Zoom and they are on Wednesdays at 15-18. Each lecture will be 2 x 45mins. In addition, there will be a Matlab demo session 45mins to explain a new task for the home assignment and/or explanation of the correct solutions for the previous week's assignment.
The main teachers will be prof. Tapio Lokki and prof. Sebastian J. Schlecht. In addition, MSc Chris Hold and MSc Nils Meyer-Kahlen will be teaching assistants, in particular for the home assignments.
