     Musical Notes Can Count Jerri Pineda Abstract— The development of mathematics involves early connections with music and the basic physics of sound. Mathematics is present in the natural occurrence of the ratios and intervals found in music and modern tuning systems. As people age, their hearing becomes dull and require change in the music ratio and interval to hear the same tune as when young. In like manner, the interval increases until a perfect pitch is heard. In this paper we will examine both the mathematics and music background for these ideas. We will examine the Fourier series representations of sound waves. Furthermore, we will see how they relate to harmonics and tonal color of instruments. The goal in this paper is aimed at exploring…

    with the fourth being 29 cents flat, the third 14 cents flat, and the seventh 12 cents flat (as compared to equal temperament tuning). Keiler also says the diatonic scale reaches into the outermost limits of the harmonic series. This is again factual, since the major seventh doesn’t appear until the 15th harmonic, and the minor third appears as the 19th harmonic. The fourth is the 21st harmonic, which pushes Bernstein’s claims to an even more ludicrous position. As Keiler suggests, it may be…

    Δfsw−coeff(푚,휃푣)=1−(1−Δfsw−nom(푚,휃푣))∗푘 (9) The coefficients are multiplied with the base switching frequency to provide the operating switching frequency of the inverter, as shown in Fig. 5. It should be noted that the base switching frequency magnitude does not depend on the sub-cycle current ripple variation and is typically adjusted based on operating current, speed and temperature of the traction drive [1]. SIMULATION RESULTS For the simulation study, a two-level inverter driving a…

    Romans later on. The apparent size of the instrument can also tell us something about pitch. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to know the amount of tension in the strings; however, we can most likely safely assume the range was somewhere between that of a modern cello and that of a modern violin and probably similar to the vocal range of the average human. Another noteworthy detail is the appearance of four possible tuning pegs between the lutenist’s left hand and body. If these are…
