Music and Mathematics (University of Leeds, 12 April 2014)

Registration for the RMA Study Day 'Music and Mathematics', to be held
at the University of Leeds on the 12th April 2014, is now open. This
one-day conference aims to bring together scholars whose work takes
inspiration from both fields and present a snapshot of the different
ways that the affinities between music and mathematics are being
explored today. The musical fields represented on the day include
music theory, analysis, composition, philosophy, psychology, and
historical musicology; the repertoire covered ranges from Dowland to
Schoenberg to Babbitt and beyond; and the mathematical tools on
display range from group theory, graph theory, number theory, and
geometry to computation and statistics.

Please visit the conference website
http://rmamusicandmaths.wordpress.com/ for information on how to
register; the site also contains a programme, abstracts, and advice
concerning travel and accommodation.
