A theoretical framework for describing the effects of nonlinear reflection on otoacoustic emission fine structure is presented. The following models of cochlear reflection are analyzed: weak nonlinearity, distributed roughness, and a combination of weak nonlinearity and distributed roughness. In particular, these models are examined in the context of stimulus frequency otoacoustic emissions (SFOAEs). In agreement with previous studies, it is concluded that only linear cochlear reflection can explain the underlying properties of cochlear fine structures. However, it is shown that nonlinearity can unexpectedly, in some cases, significantly modify the level and phase behaviors of the otoacoustic emission fine structure, and actually enhance the pattern of fine structures observed. The implications of these results on the stimulus level dependence of SFOAE fine structure are also explored.
