Mathematics and music are a match made in heaven. The ancient Greeks elevated both to the same level, and even the most unschooled rock musician uses more mathematics than he or she realizes. This talk will survey some of the most interesting connections between mathematics and music, including trigonometric identities and tunings, small fractions and musical intervals, circular seating arrangements, scales and rhythm guitar, derivation of the blues and graph colourings, the musical art of being ambiguous (or not), musical and mathematical transformations.
Jason I. Brown is a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Dalhousie University. His work that used mathematics to uncover mysteries surrounding the music of the Beatles has garnered worldwide attention.
