Fractals and Music: Science and Mathematics Fall 2018 Colloquium Series

The Science and Mathematics Department will continue their Fall Colloquium Series with a discussion on fractals and fractal imaging.

The Science and Mathematics Department in The School of Liberal Arts and Sciences will host a presentation by Science and Mathematics Associate Professor Luis Nasser on fractals and fractal imaging as part of their Fall Colloquium Series.

Fractal imaging is generated through simple mathematic equations to create beautiful, complex pictures. The presentation will address questions relating to fractals: what are they, what are their connections to the natural world, and how could the same equations be used to create beautiful, haunting music? Nasser’s talk will engage with these ideas and questions by showcasing his and Tim McCaskey’s compositions that were structured by the mathematics of fractals, cellular automata, planetary orbits, and chaos.

The presentation is free and open to the public. More event information can be found here.
