Title: Mathematics and Computation in Music: A Modern Discipline with Ancient Roots

Abstract: Mathematics and Music have had a mutually beneficial and fruitful interplay since ancient times. Today, with the advent of Computer Science, it has been possible to take this relation to another level through music retrieval and music generation techniques, plus the possibility of establishing proofs of concept when calculations are needed in the more abstract and theoretical research endeavors.

In this talk I will give a brief panoramic view of the history of the discipline and its reach at the present time, and then concentrate on different types of research subjects I have studied as examples of the subdisciplines in the field, ranging from scale theory with the use of Algebraic Combinatorics on Words, to music generation using Neural Networks and software creation. I also will give some examples of how research done in the field contributes to the pedagogy of mathematics.
