Harmonious triads : physicists, musicians, and instrument makers in nineteenth-century Germany by Myles W Jackson( Book )

13 editions published between 1900 and 2008 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jackson discusses experiments in acoustical vibrations that led to the invention of musical instruments and describes work with adiabatic phenomena that resulted in the improvement of the reed pipe, used by organ builders. He examines the collaborations of physicists and mechanicians aimed at standardizing beat and pitch and considers debates stirred by the standardization of aesthetic qualities. He describes the importance for scientists of choral societies as a vehicle for social life and cultural unity. Finally, he discusses a subject that occupied both physicists and musicians of the era: Could physicists, using the universal principles of mechanics, explain musical skill? Was the virtuosity of a Paganini or a Liszt somehow quantifiable? Jackson's historical consideration of questions at the intersection of music and physics shows us how each discipline helped shape the other."--Jacket
Spectrum of belief : Joseph von Fraunhofer and the craft of precision optics by Myles W Jackson( Book )

"In the nineteenth century, scientific practice underwent a dramatic transformation from personal endeavor to business enterprise. In Spectrum of Belief, Myles Jackson uses the career of the optician Joseph von Fraunhofer (1787-1826) to probe the relationship between science and society, and that between artisans and experimental natural philosophers, during this transformation."--Jacket
