On his blog Good Math, Bad Math, Mark Chu-Carroll tried to answer the question What is math? He’s rather lyrical, going on about music being mathematical and so on, something with which I used to agree wholeheartedly. But the comments were interesting and eye-opening.
There’s a great deal of back-and-forth about how mathematical music is, and whether the math found in music is interesting.
