|COURSE NUMBER:||PHYS 399|
|COURSE TITLE:||Special Topics in Physics - 2016/17 Winter: The Physics of Music|
|NAME OF INSTRUCTOR:||Dr Brian Martin|
|CREDIT WEIGHT AND WEEKLY TIME DISTRIBUTION:||credits 3(hrs lect 3 - hrs sem 0 - hrs lab 0)|
|COURSE DESCRIPTION:||A course on a topic of figure of special interest to a
member of the biology faculty and offered on a non-recurring basis.
Prerequisites: some topics may have more specific pre-requisites
The following course proposal has arisen from a long-standing role that the Physics program at King’s has played with the Music program in delivering a series of lectures (usually in the fall term) on the physics of music. These lectures are always well received and usually met with a genuine interest (on the part of music students) to explore these ideas further – hence rationale for a course devoted to this topic. At the same time, music is a universal part of the human experience and certainly a topic that will be of interest to physics students. This course is intended to encourage a mutually enriching conversation between the musicians and physicists!
