Is there some kind of definitive book that I should start with, given my background?
Not that I know of, but there's a ton of information on the Internet.

Some info about waveforms: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tone.html
Some info about PCM: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-code_modulation

Some very good videos about digital audio: https://xiph.org/video/
