The geometry of musical rhythm

Godfried Toussaint

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Musical rhythm is considered from the point of view of 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 new open problems are proposed.
