The objective of this chapter is to introduce the broad subject of phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials. From a historical point of view, we have tried to refer to some of the seminal contributions that have made the field. This introduction is not an exhaustive review of the literature. However, we are painting in broad strokes a picture that reflects the biased perception of this field by the authors and coauthors of the various chapters of this book.
