pp.63-65   "In Chinese civilization, acoustics share with astronomy the distinction of being the first two branches of early studies of nature that received official recognition. Together with astronomy, acoustics occupied a unique position (such as Lü-Lì Zhì) in annals and official historical records throughout the ancient history of China. Literary records of work in acoustics go back as far as those in astronomy. This is not unexpected since acoustics, like astronomy, has the distinction of being one of the earliest fields in natural science to first establish a relationship with mathematics."   Added by: sirfragalot
