Product Description
Review
"Perhaps our children will one day remark on the group symmetries in their favorite music in the way that we now simply note a beautiful tune. They, no less than we, will have much to learn from this delightful book, which sets a new standard of excellence and inclusiveness. Anyone who knows some collegelevel mathematics and is curious about how it can illuminate music will be richly rewarded by reading Benson's outstanding book."
Peter Pesic, Tutor and MusicianinResidence at St. John's College, Santa Fe
"... A precise selection of solutions..."
Luigi Carlo Berselli, Mathematical Reviews
"... an excellent introduction to the interdisciplinary subject of music and mathematics (which also involves physics, biology, psychoacoustics, and the history of science and digital technology). The book can easily be used as the text for undergraduate courses."
The Mathematical Intelligencer
Book Description
Benson provides a wealth of information for the teacher, the student, or the interested amateur to understand, at varying levels of technicality, the interplay between two ancient disciplines. A musthave book if you want to know about the music of the spheres or digital music and much in between.
