This book also includes a list of Lighthill's significant papers. Sir James Lighthill was known as Michael Lighthill when he was a young man. His father, Ernest Balzar Lighthill was a mining engineer who was working in Paris at the time his son was born. In fact the original family name had been Lichtenberg, the family being Alsatian, but Ernest Lichtenberg had changed his name to Ernest Lighthill in History.

The modern discipline of aeroacoustics can be said to have originated with the first publication of Lighthill in the early s, when noise generation associated with the jet engine was beginning to be placed under scientific scrutiny.
