Heya, I'm new here to these forums, I just posted my "Hello" in the introductions forum. I'm looking to learn a bit of maths. I've looked through the list of online resources. I'm alread registered at Khan Academy, I know of the open university and I found the open course material on MIT. I have the books Edwards & Penny: Calculus 6e, David C. Lay: Linear Algebra 3rd edition, and a book by a dansih author called "Mathematical Analysis". So thats sort of the material I can put together. I reckon I can do some general study of maths using the above material. Just need to figure the best way to do so. On a more personal note I'd like to be able to analyse music, from a mathematical standpoint, in an attempt to figure what it is exactly I like about the music that I like. Second part would be to take that knowledge and create some mathematical tools that'll help me compose my own music, incorporating the things I've found. As far as this goes, I only have TTCs course "How Music and Mathematics relate", otherwise I'm lost. I have no idea where to start with this. I'm hoping there is someone here that can help me out figuring out exactly how to start on that music/maths project. Best regards, Jacob Collstrup

Maybe start with the harmonics of chords to get an idea of why certain combinations sound good and others sound bad (in terms of the resonant frequency).

My first question is, if my formula looks correct. I had a lot of trouble putting together the sine wave correctly, for the 440 frequency. As far as I remember there ought to be a greek letter "Pi" in there along with a division. Best regards, Jacob
