About this book

This book presents a deep spectrum of musical, mathematical, physical, and philosophical perspectives that have emerged in this field at the intersection of music and mathematics. In particular the contributed chapters introduce advanced techniques and concepts from modern mathematics and physics, deriving from successes in domains such as Topos theory and physical string theory.

The authors include many of the leading researchers in this domain, and the book will be of value to researchers working in computational music, particularly in the areas of counterpoint, gesture, and Topos theory.

Reviews

“It is impossible to summarize a work of such depth. Suffice it to say that abstract algebra, topology, number theory, geometry, and so on are all involved. If you are a serious devotee of musical-mathematical theory and have a very extensive background in both areas, the book will be a treasure.” (James Van Speybroeck, Computing Reviews, April, 2018)​
