Elegance in motion

Every once in awhile, I come across a video (usually on Youtube, isn’t that where everthing ends up) that quite elegantly illustrates something math-related. I haven’t been collecting them long, but I thought I’d share a couple of them with you all. Please enjoy them as much as I have.

Autotuning is a relatively recent fad in the music industry which has everything to do with the mathematics of sound. How else can they take someone’s speaking voice and make them sing!?

This is a quite brilliant video showing how mathematics is present in the shapes of nature. I find it amazing that such “irrational” numbers come from naturally occurring phenomena.

There you have it. I hope you enjoyed those videos. I have a few more, but I think I’ll save them for later. You probably have to get back to work, or some equally non-Math-related thing. Sorry about that; I’ll be back to distract again later.
