An Analysis of the Computational Efficiency Gains from the Incorporation of Importance Sampling in Determining Optimal Sound Source Location

More Info


A novel approach for determining the optimal location of a sound source within an acoustic environment is proposed. This approach involves the application of Importance Sampling to improve the efficiency of the existing method of acoustic ray-tracing for finding the frequency response at various listening locations. The results of this study do not conclusively demonstrate the superiority of the proposed method over existing techniques, and further research is necessary to determine its viability.
