Matematica rock

Matematica rock


This is an unusual journey through mathematics in a rock & roll setting, where Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry become easy and fun to understand thanks to the many mathematical ideas in the songs and records of world-famous rockstars.

The book is divided by topic, each dealing with a specific branch of mathematics and taking the reader on a step-by-step journey from the natural numbers of Rock around the clock that kicked off the history of rock, to the prime numbers of We will rock you and the geometry of The dark side of the moon.

Each chapter begins with an anecdote, an event or a record from the history of rock that provides the musical setting to introduce and explore a related mathematical concept.
