Our researchers endeavor to understand and unify the underlying, shared patterns in complex physical, biological, social, cultural, technological, and even possible astrobiological worlds. Our global research network of scholars spans borders, departments, and disciplines, unifying curious minds steeped in rigorous logical, mathematical, and computational reasoning. As we reveal the unseen mechanisms and processes that shape these evolving worlds, we seek to use this understanding to promote the well-being of humankind and of life on earth.
From Pythagoras'; observations of the fundamental mathematical relationship between vibrating strings and harmony to the digitized musical world we enjoy today, The Majesty of Music and Mathematics will explore the remarkable interweaving of the languages of music and mathematics.
Dr. Cris Moore, physicist and mathematician at The Santa Fe Institute and David Felberg, the Santa Fe Symphony's own concertmaster and guest conductor, will guide you through an engaging evening of music from Bach to Adams, Beethoven to John Williams, plus mathematical discoveries and applications from Fourier to Moog and Theremin. Don't miss this inspiring and enthralling exploration of The Majesty of Music and Mathematics.
Presented by the Santa Fe Institute, the Santa Fe Symphony and underwritten by the Sydney & Andrew Davis Foundation.
