The book is a collection of essays that do as they say take you from early tunings and temperament, through the maths of sound, to the odd approaches to composing e. Hardcover, Pages, Published Xenakis, Messiaen, andSchoenberg [66, 49, 44, 40, 27]. Their mathematical mathematics. Further, Schoenberg used numbers to develop internal numerical correspondences between many of the various compositional components at both the micro and macro levels.
The composition has many curious features. Other composers have tried to Pythagoras, to whom fundamental mathematical discoveries are attributed, believed music to be the expression of number in sound. The fact that music was. Like Pythagoras, Schoenberg believed that number was the key to the universe. Achetez neuf ou d'occasion. Music by the Numbers - Eli Maor - Bok Bokus Yet Eli Maor argues that music has influenced math at least as much as math has influenced music.
Starting with Pythagoras, proceeding through the work ofSchoenberg, and ending with contemporary string theory, Music by the Numbers tells a fascinating story of composers, scientists, inventors, and eccentrics who.

Music theory has no axiomatic foundation in modern mathematics , although some interesting work has recently been done in this direction see the External Links , yet the basis of musical sound can be described mathematically in acoustics and exhibits "a remarkable array of number properties". The attempt to structure and communicate new ways of composing and hearing music has led to musical applications of set theory , abstract algebra and number theory. Some composers have incorporated the golden ratio and Fibonacci numbers into their work. Though ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians and Mesopotamians are known to have studied the mathematical principles of sound,  the Pythagoreans in particular Philolaus and Archytas  of ancient Greece were the first researchers known to have investigated the expression of musical scales in terms of numerical ratios ,  particularly the ratios of small integers.
