September 9 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Title: Experimental Knot Music

Abstract: In knot theory, there are algebraic structures we can use to distinguish different types of knots and links. In this talk we will ask an unexpected question: what do they sound like? We will see a number of techniques I have been developing for interpreting knot-theoretic structures as elements of musical composition.

Prof. Nelson is Professor and Chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Claremont McKenna College.
