Lecture no. 12 from the course: How Music and Mathematics Relate
Taught by Professor David Kung | 48 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Conclude with an eight-part finale, in which you range widely through the territory that connects mathematics, music, and the mind. Among the questions you address: What happens in the brain of an infant exposed to music? Why do child prodigies often excel in the areas of math, music, or chess? And how do creativity, abstraction, and beauty unite music and mathematics, despite being on opposite ends of the arts and sciences?
