Music and Mathematics: From Pythagoras to Fractals (Paperback)

£26.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

From Ancient Greek times, music has been seen as a mathematical art, and the relationship between mathematics and music has fascinated generations. This collection of wide ranging, comprehensive and fully-illustrated papers, authored by leading scholars, presents the link between these two subjects in a lucid manner that is suitable for students of both subjects, as well as the general reader with an interest in music. Physical, theoretical, physiological, acoustic, compositional, and analytical relationships between mathematics and music are unfolded and explored with focus on tuning and temperament, the mathematics of sound, bell-ringing and modern compositional techniques.

Customer Reviews

This is a collection of essays rather than a comprehensive A-Z of the subject; nonetheless, the material is engaging and thought-provoking, so long as you have the patience (and given you probably both love listening to long pieces of music and contemplating mathematical problems, patience shouldn't be too alien to you). I have only read a couple of the essays so far, but I found there was plenty enough to think about and to go back over for a second or third pass. A book you will come back to time and again rather than a cover-to-cover read, which makes it all the more valuable to have on your shelf.
