Have you ever wondered how our brains process pitches and interpret them as music, or how we can tell the sound of a piano apart from a guitar? Mathematics and music theory combined can explain many of these puzzles. This presentation will give an accessible overview of basic topics in acoustics, music theory, and music cognition—including the properties of the overtone series, the development of tuning systems, and the cognition of rhythm and pitch.
