Title:Three Dimensional Creativity [electronic resource] : Three Navigations to Extend our Thoughts
Author(s): Kwang Hyung Lee
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Is creativity something that we are simply born with and cannot hone with effort? Some say that creativity cannot be cultivated. Is it true? In general, our thinking sticks to reality unless there is any external stimulation. Withour thinking fixed o n a certain situation, it becomes difficult to come up with a fresh idea. In this regard, three questions are suggested: (1) Question of Time: When a problem arises, question yourself on a time axis first of all.How would the matter be handled 10 or 20 ye ars from now? (2) Question of Space: Ask yourself some questions on its spatial elements. How would the matter be handled in Saudi Arabia or in China? (3) Question of Field: Apply the givenproblem in a variety of fields. How would the matter be handled in the field of music or electronic engineering? The three questions suggested here are given on the three axes: time, space, and field, and this book deals withtheoretical and practical aspects on the topics. In this way it is a unique book about the syste matic method of developing creativity, which will have appeal to researchers and students in multidisciplinary fields from neuroscience tophysics, and engineering and computer science, as well as a general public

Title:Looking at Numbers [electronic resource]
Author(s): Tom Johnson
Franck Jedrzejewski
Date:2014
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Galileo Galilei said he was reading the book of nature as he observed pendulums swinging, but he might also simply have tried to draw the numbers themselves as they fall into networks of permutations or form loops thatsynchronize at different speeds, or attach themselves to balls passing in and out of the hands of good jugglers. Numbers are, after all, a part of nature. As such, looking at and thinking about them is a way of understanding ourrelationship to nature. But when we do so in a technical, p rofessional way, we tend to overlook their basic attributes, the things we can understand by simply looking at numbers. Tom Johnson is a composer who uses logic andmathematical models, such as combinatorics of numbers, in his music. The patterns he finds while looking at numbers can also be explored in drawings. This book focuses on such drawings, their beauty and their mathematicalmeaning. The accompanying comments were written in collaboration with the mathematician Franck Jedrzejewski

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Principles of Musical Acoustics focuses on the basic principles in the science and technology of music. Musical examples and specific musical instruments demonstrate the principles. The book begins with a study of vibrations andwaves, in that order. These topics constitute the basic physical properties of sound, one of two pillars supporting the science of musical acoustics. The second pillar is the human element, the physiological and psychological aspectsof acoustical science. The perceptual topics include loudness, pitch, tone color, and localization of sound. With these two pillars in place, it is possible to go in a variety of directions. The book treats in turn, the topics of roomacoustics, audio both analog and digital, broadcasting, and speec h. It ends with chapters on the traditional musical instruments, organized by family. The mathematical level of this book assumes that the reader is familiar withelementary algebra. Trigonometric functions, logarithms and powers also appear in the book, b ut computational techniques are included as these concepts are introduced, and there is further technical help in appendices

Title:Mathematics and Modern Art [electronic resource] : Proceedings of the First ESMA Conference, held in Paris, July 19-22, 2010

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The link between mathematics and art remains as strong today as it was in the earliest instances of decorative and ritual art. Arts, architecture, music and painting have for a long time been sources of new developments inmathematics, and vice versa. Many great painters have seen no contradiction between artistic and mathematical endeavors, contributing to the progress of both, using mathematical principles to guide their visual creativity, enrichingtheir visual environment with the new objects creat ed by the mathematical science. Owing to the recent development of the so nice techniques for visualization, while mathematicians can better explore these new mathematical objects,artists can use them to emphasize their intrinsic beauty, and create quite new sceneries. This volume, the content of the first conference of the European Society for Mathematics and the Arts (ESMA), held in Paris in 2010, gives anoverview on some significant and beautiful recent works where maths and art, including architecture and music, are interwoven. The book includes a wealth of mathematical illustrations from several basic mathematical fields includingclassical geometry, topology, differential geometry, dynamical systems. Here, artists and mathematicians alike elucidate t he thought processes and the tools used to create their work

Title:The Physics of Music and Color [electronic resource]
Author(s): Leon Gunther
Date:2012
Edition:1
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Physics of Music and Color deals with two subjects, music and color - sound and light in the physically objective sense - in a single volume. The basic underlying physical principles of the two subjects overlap greatly: bothmusic and color are ma nifestations of wave phenomena, and commonalities exist as to the production, transmission, and detection of sound and light. This book aids readers in studying both subjects, which involve nearly the entire gamutof the fundamental laws of classical as we ll as modern physics. Where traditional introductory physics and courses are styled so that the basic principles are introduced first and are then applied wherever possible, this book is basedon a motivational approach: it introduces a subject by demonstr ating a set of related phenomena, challenging readers by calling for a physical basis for what is observed. The book is based upon a course on the physics of music andcolor that has been taught at Tufts University since 1973, when the course was introduce d by Gary Goldstein and the author. Topics that are unusual for a book at this level and breadth include: a detailed non-mathematical summary ofthe principles of electricity and magnetism with the goal of understanding the basis for various audio devices as well as the physical essence of light and how it propagates as a wave extensive details on the calculation of colorcoordinates from a spectral intensity with different choices of primaries the relationship between color coordinates on a computer and th e color seen on a monitor. References to recent developments include the connection between theblueness of the ocean and the psycho-acoustic perception of combination tones in a sound wave. A major goal is to provide an understanding of basic principles, both conceptual and quantitative, that will allow the reader to haveincreased awareness of audial and visual experiences and to understand phenomena not discussed in the book.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Most networks and databases that humans have to deal with contain large, albeit finite number of units. Their structure, for maintaining functional consistency of the components, is essentially not random and calls for a precisequantitative descripti on of relations between nodes (or data units) and all network components. This book is an introduction, for both graduate students and newcomers to the field, to the theory of graphs and random walks on suchgraphs. The methods based on random walks and di ffusions for exploring the structure of finite connected graphs and databases are reviewed (Markov chain analysis). This provides the necessary basis for consistently discussing a numberof applications such diverse as electric resistance networks, estimat ion of land prices, urban planning, linguistic databases, music, and gene expression regulatory networks

Title:Risk and Meaning [electronic resource] : Adversaries in Art, Science and Philosophy
Author(s): Nicolas Bouleau
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This richly illustrated book is an exploration of how chance and risk, on the one hand, and meaning or significance on the other, compete for the limelight in art, in philosophy, and in science. In modern society, prudence andprobability calculation permeate our daily lives. Yet it is clear for all to see that neither cautious bank regulations nor mathematics have prevented economic crises from occurring time and again. Nicolas Bouleau argues that it is themeaning we assign to an event that determine s the perceived risk, and that we generally turn a blind eye to this important fact, because the word meaning is itself awkward to explain. He tackles this fundamental question throughexamples taken from cultural fields ranging from painting, architecture , and music, to poetry, biology, and astronomy. This enables the reader to view overwhelming risks in a different light. Bouleau clarifies that the most importantthing in a time of uncertainty is to think of prudence on a higher level, one that truly addr esses the various subjective interpretations of the world

Title:E.T. Talk [electronic resource] : How Will We Communicate with Intelligent Life on Other Worlds?

Note:Although we have done extensive studies of the Solar System and thus far found over 300 extrasolar planets planets outside our Solar System we have not yet found life, even primitive life, on any planet other than Earth.Might there be life on some of these newly discovered extrasolar planets? Not likely, as most are gas giants or are too close or too far from their sun. However, of late we are finding more and more Earthlike planets. It is nowestimated that about 15 percent of the planets in the ga laxy are Earthlike, and many of these will likely orbit their suns at the right distance to support life as we know it. No one knows yet if radio searches or other means ofdetection will reveal that we are not alone in the universe. But if we do discover intelligent life elsewhere, how will we communicate with it? Are there some universal methods of communication we can use? Is music or mathematicsa universal language? Are there alien intelligences right here on Earth we can use to help us figure out ways of communicating? The answers may surprise you. All of these issues and more are covered in this exciting, readable, andauthoritative book on a subject that is not mere idle speculation anymore. We are certainly getting closer to finding out who, if anyb ody, is out there. This book will not only inform you about the search and the likelihood of findinglife, it will also actually teach you how to talk to aliens!

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Professor Yoichi Ando, acoustic architectural designer of the Kirishima International Concert Hall in Japan, presents a comprehensive rational-scientific approach to designing performance spaces. His theory is based on systematicpsychoacoustical obse rvations of spatial hearing and listener preferences, whose neuronal correlates are observed in the neurophysiology of the human brain. A correlation-based model of neuronal signal processing in the centralauditory system is proposed in which temporal sen sations (pitch, timbre, loudness, duration) are represented by an internal autocorrelation representation, and spatial sensations (sound location, size, diffuseness related toenvelopment) are represented by an internal interaural crosscorrelation function . Together these two internal central auditory representations account for the basic auditory qualities that are relevant for listening to music and speechin indoor performance spaces. Observed psychological and neurophysiological commonalities between au ditory and visual sensations and preference patterns are presented and discussed. This book thus spans the disciplines of physics,acoustics, psychology, neurophysiology, and music production, thereby blending science, engineering, and art

Note:Typical travel guides have sections on architecture, art, literature, music and cinema. Rarely are any science-related sites identified. For example, a current travel guide for Germany contains one tidbit on science: Einstein isidentified as the most famous citizen of Ulm. By contrast, this travel guide walks a tourist through Berlin and identifies where Max Planck started the quantum revolution, where Einstein lived and gave his early talks on generalrelativity, and where, across the street, Einstei ns books were burned by the Nazis. Or, if you are walking in Paris, this guide tells you where radioactivity was discovered and where radium was discovered. Scientific discoveries ofthe past, like art of the past, has shaped life in the 21st century. From this travel guide, a tourist will learn what other guides leave out

Title:The Rubato Composer Music Software [electronic resource] Component-Based Implementation of a Functorial Concept Architecture
Author(s): Grard Milmeister
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Both modern mathematical music theory and computer science are strongly influenced by the theory of categories and functors. One outcome of this research is the data format of denotators, which is based on set-valued presheavesover the category of mo dules and diaffine homomorphisms. The functorial approach of denotators deals with generalized points in the form of arrows and allows the construction of a universal concept architecture. This architecture isideal for handling all aspects of music, espec ially for the analysis and composition of highly abstract musical works. This book presents an introduction to the theory of module categories and the theory of denotators, as well as thedesign of a software system, called Rubato Composer, which is an imp lementation of the category-theoretic concept framework. The application is written in portable Java and relies on plug-in components, so-called rubettes, which may becombined in data flow networks for the generation and manipulation of denotators. The Ru bato Composer system is open to arbitrary extension and is freely available under the GPL license. It allows the developer to build specializedrubettes for tasks that are of interest to composers, who in turn combine them to create music. It equally serve s music theorists, who use them to extract information from and manipulate musical structures. They may even develop newtheories by experimenting with the many parameters that are at their disposal thanks to the increased flexibility of the functorial con cept architecture. Two contributed chapters by Guerino Mazzola and Florian Thalmann illustrate theapplication of the theory as well as the software in the development of compositional tools and the creation of a musical work with the help of the Rubato fr amework

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The first book to compare the main two computer algebra systems (CAS), Maple and Mathematica used by students, mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. Both systems are presented in parallel so that Mathematica users can learnMaple quickly by findi ng the Maple equivalent to Mathematica functions, and vice versa. This student reference handbook consists of core material for incorporating Maple and Mathematica as a working tool into different undergraduatemathematical courses (abstract and linear alg ebra, geometry, calculus and analysis, complex functions, special functions, integral and discrete transforms, algebraic and transcendental equations, ordinary and partial differentialequations, integral equations, numerical analysis and scientific comput ing). The book also contains applications from various areas of mathematics, physics, and music theory and can be useful for graduate students, professors, andresearchers in science and engineering. One of the goals of this book is to develop problem-solv ing skills (that are most useful for solving sophisticated research problems) finding solutions with Maple and Mathematica and not todepend on a specific version of both systems (Maple 12 and Mathematica 6 and 7 are considered). Part I, describes the foun dations of Maple and Mathematica (with equivalent problems and solutions). Part II, describes Mathematics withMaple and Mathematica by using equivalent problems. Finally, this book is ideal for scientists who want to corroborate their Maple and Mathematic a work with independent verification provided by another CAS. J. Carter, SIAM Review 50:149-152 (2008).

Note:Algorithmic composition composing by means of formalizable methods has a century old tradition not only in occidental music history. This is the first book to provide a detailed overview of prominent procedures ofalgorithmic composition in a pragma tic way rather than by treating formalizable aspects in single works. In addition to an historic overview, each chapter presents a specific class of algorithm in a compositional context by providing ageneral introduction to its development and theoretical basis and describes different musical applications. Each chapter outlines the strengths, weaknesses and possible aesthetical implications resulting from the application of thetreated approaches. Topics covered are: markov models, generative grammars, tra nsition networks, chaos and self-similarity, genetic algorithms, cellular automata, neural networks and artificial intelligence are covered. Thecomprehensive bibliography makes this work ideal for the musician and the researcher alike

Note:R, a free and open source program, is one of the most powerful and the fastest-growing statistics program. Microsoft Excel is the most widely used spreadsheet program, but many statisticians consider its statistical tools toolimited. In this book, th e authors build on RExcel, a free add-in for Excel that can be downloaded from the R distribution network. RExcel seamlessly integrates the entire set of R's statistical and graphical methods into Excel,allowing students to focus on statistical methods an d concepts and minimizing the distraction of learning a new programming language. Data can be transferred between R and Excel the Excel way by selecting worksheet ranges and usingExcel menus. R's basic statistical functions and selected advanced methods a re available from an Excel menu. Results of the computations and statistical graphics can be returned back into Excel worksheet ranges. RExcel allows the useof Excel scroll bars and check boxes to create and animate R graphics as an interactive analysis t ool. The book is designed as a computational supplement to introductory statistics texts and the authors provide RExcel examples coveringthe topics of the introductory course. Richard M.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Acoustics and the Performance of Music connects scientific understandings of acoustics with practical applications to musical performance. Of central importance are the tonal characteristics of musical instruments and the singingvoice including detai led representations of directional characteristics. Furthermore, room acoustical concerns related to concert halls and opera houses are considered. Based on this, suggestions are made for musical performance.Included are seating arrangements within the or chestra and adaptations of performance techniques to the performance environment. In the presentation we dispense with complicated mathematical connections and deliberately aim forconceptual explanations accessible to musicians, particularly for conductor s. The graphical representations of the directional dependence of sound radiation by musical instruments and the singing voice are unique. Since the firstedition was published in 1978, this book has been completely revised and rewritten to include current research. This translation corresponds to the latest (fifth) German edition (2004), which has become a standard reference work foraudio engineers and scientists. Acoustics and the Performance of Music addresses issues that are of interest to acousticians , orchestra performers and conductors, audio engineers, architects. Researchers and students of musicalacoustics will also find this text valuable

Note:This book, a classic in its field, deals with the physical systems and physiological processes that intervene in music. It analyzes what objective, physical properties of sound are associated with what subjective psychologicalsensations of music, and it describes how these sound patterns are actually generated in musical instruments, how they propagate through the environment, and how they are detected by the ear and interpreted in the brain. Using theprecise language of science, but without complica ted mathematics, the author weaves a close mesh of the physics, psychophysics and neurobiology relevant to music. A prior knowledge of physics, mathematics, neurobiology or psychology isnot required to understand most of the book it is, however, assumed t hat the reader is familiar with music - in particular, with musical notation, musical scales and intervals, and some of the basics of musical instruments.

Title:The Music of the Big Bang [electronic resource] The Cosmic Microwave Background and the New Cosmology

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The cosmic microwave background radiation is the afterglow of the big bang: a tenuous signal, more than 13 billion years old, which carries the answers to many of the questions about the nature of our Universe. It wasserendipitously discovered in 196 4, and thoroughly investigated in the last four decades by a large number of experiments. Two Nobel Prizes in Physics have already been awarded for research on the cosmic background radiation: one in1978 to Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson, who first discov ered it, the other in 2006, to George Smoot and John Mather, for the results of the COBE satellite. Most cosmological information is encoded in the cosmic background radiation byacoustic oscillations in the dense plasma that filled the primordial Universe : a music of the big bang, which cosmologists have long been trying to reconstruct and analyze, in order to distinguish different cosmological models,much like one can distinguish different musical instruments by their timbre and overtones. Only lately, t his amazing cosmic sound has been unveiled by such experiments as BOOMERANG and MAXIMA and, more recently, by the WMAP satellite.This led to a giant leap in our understanding of the Universe, but the investigation is not ended yet. The book focuses on how the exploration of the cosmic background radiation has shaped our picture of the Universe, leading even thenon-specialized readers towards the frontier of cosmological research, helping them to understand, using a simple language and captivating metaphor s, the mechanisms behind the Universe in which we live. This non-technical tour of thediscovery and significance of the whispers of creation, the fossil radiation from the Big Bang, is a delight to read.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:When one listens to music at home, one would like to have an acoustic impression close to that of being in the concert hall. Until recently this meant elaborate multi-channelled sound systems with 5 or more speakers. Buthead-related stereophony achie ves the surround-sound effect in living rooms with only two loudspeakers. By virtue of their slight directivity as well as an electronic filter the limitations previously common to two-speaker systems canbe overcome and this holds for any arbitrary two-ch annel recording. The book also investigates the question of how a wide and diffuse sound image can arise in concert halls and shows that the quality of concert halls decisively dependson diffuse sound images arising in the onset of reverberation. For this purpose a strong onset of reverberation is modified in an anechoic chamber by electroacoustic means. Acoustics and Hearing proposes ideas concerning signalprocessing in the auditory system that explain the measured results and the resultant sound effects pleasing to the audience

Title:Symmetry [electronic resource] : Cultural-historical and ontological aspects of science-arts relations The natural and man-made world in an interdisciplinary approach

Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:All of us have a certain conception of what symmetry means, at least as far as its main forms are concerned (like mirror-reflection or rotation, but only rarely translation). What are the common features of these transformations?How can one generalis e them to explain similar phenomena that appear in different arts and sciences? What other forms of symmetry can we include in the scope of our study by the application of these generalised rules? How can a commonphenomenon lend possible solutions from on e discipline to another? Did you know that symmetry is a universal concept that has appeared in all cultures since prehistoric times, accompanying us through the history of mankind? Whatimportant role have asymmetries like the one-handedness of the neutri no played in the formation of matter, from the assumed Big Bang through to the asymmetries of the human brain? This book tries to explain these and a number ofrelated questions. This is the first comprehensive book on the topic since the publication of H. Weyls popular book on symmetry more than fifty years ago. It is relevant to almost all fields of science where symmetry appears as aphenomenon or is applied as a method, and where the concept is present in contemporary sciences, humanities and arts. Symm etry used to be a fundamental phenomenon in crystallography, where its basic concept was elaborated, inmorphological biology, and of course in mathematics, which provided its exact description. In the last half century symmetry (and symmetry breaking) has become a leading principle in physics, in all sciences that deal with thestructure of matter, as well as in the biochemistry of proteins, the study of the genetic code, brain research (where functional asymmetries have been revealed), psychology, and in developing architectural structures and in businessdecision-making, to name but a few examples. This book seeks to find common regularities among these apparently disparate phenomena. It covers most

Note:Analysis, Synthesis, and Perception of Musical Sounds contains a detailed treatment of basic methods for analysis and synthesis of musical sounds, including the phase vocoder method, the McAulay-Quatieri frequency-trackingmethod, the constant-Q trans form, and methods for pitch tracking with several examples shown. Various aspects of musical sound spectra such as spectral envelope, spectral centroid, spectral flux, and spectral irregularity are definedand discussed. One chapter is devoted to the contr ol and synthesis of spectral envelopes. Two advanced methods of analysis/synthesis are given: Sines Plus Transients Plus Noise and Spectrotemporal Reassignment are covered.Methods for timbre morphing are given. The last two chapters discuss the perception of musical sounds based on discrimination and multidimensional scaling timbre models

Note:David Speiser is Professor Emeritus at the Catholic University of Louvain, where he taught mathematics and physics from 1963 to 1990. His work in history of science included various publications, some of which are related to arthistory. Nephew of mat hematician Andreas Speiser, David Speiser's own wide-ranging interests have brought him into contact with a panorama of disciplines. Editor Kim Williams has assembled a group of notes where scholars contributeessays inspired by their contact with Prof. Sp eiser in honour of his eightieth birthday. Topics range from history of sciences to history of art, from architecture theory to music theory, from particle physics to the proliferation ofnuclear weapons, to an essay on the very nature of interdisciplinary studies.

Note:The rapid growth in electronic systems in the past decade has boosted research in the area of computational intelligence. As it has become increasingly easy to generate, collect, transport, process, and store huge amounts of data,the role of intellig ent algorithms has become prominent in order to visualize, manipulate, retrieve, and interpret the data. For instance, intelligent search techniques have been developed to search for relevant items in hugecollections of web pages, and data mining and inte rpretation techniques play a very important role in making sense out of huge amounts of biomolecular measurements. As a result, the added value of many modern systems is no longerdetermined by hardware only, but increasingly by the intelligent software th at supports and facilitates the user in realizing his or her objectives. This book is the outcome of a series of discussions at the Philips Symposium onIntelligent Algorithms, which was held in Eindhoven in December 2004. It contains many exciting and pra ctical examples of the use of intelligent algorithms in the areas of ambient and biomedical computing. It contains topics such asbioscience computing, database design, machine consciousness, scheduling, video summarization, audio classification, semantic reasoning, machine learning, tracking & localization, secure computing, and communication

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Combinatorial commutative algebra is an active area of research with thriving connections to other fields of pure and applied mathematics. This book provides a self-contained introduction to the subject, with an emphasis oncombinatorial techniques fo r multigraded polynomial rings, semigroup algebras, and determinantal rings. The eighteen chapters cover a broad spectrum of topics, ranging from homological invariants of monomial ideals and their polyhedralresolutions, to hands-on tools for studying alg ebraic varieties with group actions, such as toric varieties, flag varieties, quiver loci, and Hilbert schemes. Over 100 figures, 250 exercises, and pointers to the literature make thisbook appealing to both graduate students and researchers. Ezra Miller received his doctorate in 2000 from UC Berkeley. After two years at MIT in Cambridge and one year at MSRI in Berkeley, he is currently Assistant Professor at theUniversity of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Miller was awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Dissertation Fello wship in 1999 and an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2000. Besides his mathematical interests, which include combinatorics, algebraicgeometry, homological algebra, and polyhedral geometry, Miller is fond of music theory and composition, molecular biology, and ultimate frisbee. Bernd Sturmfels received doctoral degrees in 1987 from the University of Washington,Seattle and TU Darmstadt, Germany. After two postdoc years at the IMA in Minneapolis and RISC-Linz in Austria, he taught at Cornell University before joining UC Berkeley in 1995, where he is now Professor of Mathematics and ComputerScience. A leading experimentalist among mathematicians, Sturmfels has authored seven books and over 130 research articles in the areas of combinatorics, algebraic geometry , symbolic computation, and their applications, and he hasmentored 16 doctoral students
