AZ Humanities: The Science of Music, The Music of Science

Why would so many physicists compare the universe to an orchestra? Why did Einstein use his violin playing to enhance his contemplation of the nature of the cosmos?

The connection of music and math was illuminated early on when Pythagorus divided a string. Not surprisingly, from astro physicists to quantum theorists, the common base is mathematics. And clearly the study of sound, acoustics and the vibrational spectrum intricately entwine science and music. Learn about the correlations between these two overlapping worlds and why so many scientists are also musicians, and musicians, scientists.

This program is cohosted by the Chandler Gilbert Community College Co-Curricular Programs.
