Music by the Numbers - Eli Maor

Music by the Numbers

Eli Maor

16,99  inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand

Music by the Numbers explores key moments in this history, particularly how problems originating in music have inspired mathematicians for centuries. more

Perhaps the most famous of these problems is the vibrating string, which pitted some of the greatest mathematicians of the eighteenth century against each other in a debate that lasted more than fifty years and that eventually led to the development of post-calculus mathematics. Other highlights in the book include a comparison between meter in music and metric in geometry, complete with examples of rhythmic patterns from Bach to Stravinsky, and an exploration of a suggestive twentieth-century development: the nearly simultaneous emergence of Einstein’s theory of relativity and Schoenberg’s twelve-tone system.
