MATH MUSIC MIND AT TILDE SCIENCE CAFE


TILDE


a café with an accent on science and the world

PRESENTS

MATH, MUSIC & MIND

A discussion led by

Professor Ian Quinn

Music Department
Yale University

Saturday, December 18, 2010, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Blackstone Memorial Library
758 Main St, Branford CT

Math, Music and Mind, the three M's, have been discussed in the context of each other quite extensively. Although under general academic "norms" they are listed under science, art, and humanities respectively, they are uniquely interconnected, particularly in the context of perception.

The widely read Godel, Escher and Bach (Douglas Hofstadter) has been hailed as an exposition of concepts that are central to mathematics, music and the mind.

Professor Ian Quinn will give us his take on the unique aspects between Math, Music and Mind and about the possibilities of there being a common thread between them.
