Mathematics and MusicBy Internet Scout Report
Mathematics and Music
The American Mathematics Society (AMS) has created this diverse resource list dedicated to the intersecting fields of mathematics and music.
This list includes a number of video-recorded lectures, podcast episodes, articles, and journals available for subscription. Many of these items will be of use to mathematics and music classrooms alike, while others may hold special appeal to researchers and members of the general public.
Readers will find a video lecture about symmetry in mathematics and music by a musician of the Santa Fe Symphony (accompanied by a performance of the symphony); a TED talk by researcher Natalya St. Clair about Beethoven’s use of mathematics; and a podcast episode featuring composer and music theorist Dmitri Tymoczko on using coordinate geometry and topology to express musical notes.
