About this book

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music, MCM 2009, held in New Haven, CT, USA, in June 2009.

The 26 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 38 submissions. The MCM conference is the flagship conference of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music. The papers deal with topics within applied mathematics, computational models, mathematical modelling and various further aspects of the theory of music.

This year’s conference is dedicated to the honor of John Clough whose research modeled the virtues of collaborative work across the disciplines.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music (MCM) is the flagship conference of the Society of Mathematics and Computation in Music. The second of these conferences was held in 2009, at Yale University, in honor of the late John Cough, a well-known mathematical music theorist. … The topics of these papers are perennially interesting. I strongly recommend this book to scientific libraries … . The target readership is postgraduates and researchers in music analysis.” (Soubhik Chakraborty, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2010)
