Prof. Dave Kung from St. Mary’s College of Maryland
Math Festival Colloqium
April 2015

Prof. Kung orchestrated his talk and performance “Harmonious Equations: A Mathematical Exploration of Music” with SSU’s musicians in residence Saeunn Thorsteinsdottir (cello) and Elizabeth Roe (piano).  Prof. Kung’s talk ranged from the mathematics of vibrating strings, columns of air, and tides to symmetry, resonance, and group theory, linking them all to live performance of Beethoven’s Ghost Trio and Bach’s fugues.
