Local Sound Field Synthesis, PhD thesis

This repository contains supplementary material for the PhD thesis "Local Sound Field Synthesis" of Fiete Winter

Software Requirements


The repository was tested with pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.19 (TeX Live 2018). For the output of \listfiles showing the used packages and files, see here. In addition to the packages available on CTAN, you need

  • soundfield.sty (repo)
  • audioicons.sty

which are provided within the repository. The packages have to be installed manually.

Installation under Linux (Tex Live)

For current user:

cp soundfield.sty `kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME`/tex/latex/ 
cp audioicons.sty `kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME`/tex/latex/ 

System-wide (as root/using sudo):

cp soundfield.sty `kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL`/tex/latex/
cp audioicons.sty `kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL`/tex/latex/


The repository was tested under Gnuplot v5.0 patchlevel 3. You need the following Gnuplot extensions

In order to use the extensions their directories have to be included into Gnuplot's search path. This is done via the GNUPLOT_LIBenvironment variable. Under Linux (and possibly Mac) execute

# gnuplot search path
export GNUPLOT_LIB=~/projects/gnuplot-colorbrewer:$GNUPLOT_LIB

in a shell of your choice. You may also add this to your ~/.bashrc or something (depends on the shell your are using) to execute this automatically. For Windows, see here. You can check, if the path is correcty included via show loadpath in the Gnuplot command prompt. Among other lines, this should display something like

loadpath from GNUPLOT_LIB is "/home/bewater/projects/gnuplot-colorbrewer"

CAUTION: You cannot run most Gnuplot files without having the soundfield.sty from the LaTeX requirements installed


The code of this repository has been tested under MATLABR2015a. Please add the ./matlab directory to your MATLAB path. You need the following toolboxes

The path of the toolboxes should be added to your MATLAB path. For specific installation instructions please take a look at the listed websites.


  • Hagen Wierstorf (Gnuplot)
  • Till Rettberg and Sascha Spors (audioicons.sty for LaTeX)
