Mujahid F. AL-Azzo and Azzah T.Qaba, Ninevah University, Iraq


A mathematical model for localization of acoustical sources with separation between them is derived and presented. A classical (Fourier transform) method and a modern, parametric, (Burg) method are used. The results show the capability of Burg method to resolve the adjacent sources when compared with Fourier transform method, as well as the localization of the sources. The performance is studies with varying some parameters relating to the problem.
