about this item

Author Stephon Alexander, a physicist and a jazz musician, is seen on TEDx talks, Google’s SciFoo, the Science Channel, and NOVA. In this book for general readers, students, and scholars, he highlights connections between jazz and the laws of physics and points to the role of jazz music as a way to answer the ultimate questions that the study of physics leads us to ponder. As he explains the latest theories and discoveries about the relationship between sound waves and the waves that make up all matter and energy, he intertwines his own memories of his childhood music lessons and how he came to study physics in college. In spite of some math, the book is accessible to general readers, offering visual appeal with b&w photos, illustrations, and simple diagrams.
