PLACE: McConnel 320
TITLE: Computational Geometric Aspects of Musical Rhythm
SPEAKER: Godfried Toussaint, School of Computer Science, McGill University

Musical rhythm is considered from the point of view of computational geometry. The interaction between the two fields yields new insights into rhythm and music theory, as well as new problems for research in mathematics and computer science. Recent results are reviewed, and open problems are proposed. No knowledge of music is required to understand this talk.
