STEM Speaker Series: Harmonious Equations
What does math have to do with music? Discover how these decidedly different disciplines are connected in this engaging lecture, featuring live musical examples on violin. Learn how abstract algebra plays a role in Bach's magnificent canons and fugues; understand the mathematical principles behind the clarinet's ability to play so much lower than the flute; and unearth the connection between Calculus, differential equations, and our ability to hear timbre.
