THE ACOUSTIC AND MUSICAL ORIGINS OF HARMONIC ANALYSIS
CONFERÊNCIA POR OLIVIER DARRIGOL
SALA 8.2.14, FCUL
No âmbito do projecto A Física dos Princípios e a Epistemologia Científica: os casos de Mach, Hertz e Poincaré.
Abstract: Harmonic analysis, or the mathematical science of trigonometric series, has eighteenth-century roots in the physico-mathematical discussion of acoustic vibrations. Its inventor, Daniel Bernoulli, and its main opponents, d’Alembert and Euler, were deeply involved in music theory. Their conflict depended on the different ways in which they conceived the relations between physics, mathematics, and music.
Olivier Darrigol is a Research Director at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris. His research focuses on the history of quantum theory and of electrodynamics.
