Mathematics and music are a match made in heaven. The ancient Greeks elevated both to the same level, and even the most unschooled rock musician uses more mathematics than he or she realizes. Accompanied by the live band 2Big4Words (with TNO guitar virtuoso Omar Niamut), professor Jason Brown will survey and illustrate some of the most interesting connections between mathematics and music, including a discussion of the uncovering, via mathematics, of some musical mysteries surrounding The Beatles. Professor Brown is visiting the Netherlands upon invitation by TNO and Delft University of Technology. The lecture will be held at the DOK Library Concept Center in Delft. DOK has won several awards in recent years for their innovative ideas, services and projects.
