Spherical microphone arrays have been recently studied for spatial sound recording, speech communication, and sound field analysis for room acoustics and noise control. Complementary studies presented progress in beamforming methods. This chapter reviews beamforming methods recently developed for spherical arrays, from the widely used delay-and-sum and Dolph-Chebyshev, to the more advanced optimal methods, typically performed in the spherical harmonics domain.
