    I watched "A Number" With Tanya. It was fantastic. I can now actually see Marcus Graham as a serious actor. Unfortunately they had a long-standing pun where the only thing that never changed between the clones was the jeans.. Posted by Hello

    Fibonacci: "The composer Bartok Bela was very interested in many aspects of nature and science. Some of his scores have the Fibonacci numbers actually marked at the relevant bars, and one composition, the fourth quartet, has 2584 beats in it. Many other composers apparently used numbers, but if, like Bartok, they did not leave any writings about it, the possibility of coincidence cannot be disproved."

    "1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144 233 377 610 987 1597 2584 4181 etc
    This sequence is known as the Fibonacci series, and is well known in mathematics. Each number is the sum of the previous two. The ratio of successive pairs tends to the so-called golden section (GS) - 1.618033989 . . . . . whose reciprocal is 0.618033989 . . . . . so that we have
    1/GS = 1 + GS"

    And here is more on what Karl was telling me.. and far more difficult and more likely than the Beethoven story. Also a really good page on Fibonacci sequences, too.

    Mathematics and Mysticism - Mathematics and the Liberal Arts
    Mathematics and Mysticism - Mathematics and the Liberal Arts: "Grattan-Guinness, I. Some numerological features of Beethoven's output. Ann. of Sci. 51 (1994), no. 2, 103--135. SC: 01A99 (00A69), MR: 1 278 119.
    The author discusses possible occurrences of number symbolism in Beethoven's compositions. A large number of examples are used to buttress his arguments, and some prior familiarity with Beethoven's work might be useful. In some cases, numbers occur as the number of measures or notes of a them or motif, and in other cases in Beethoven's choice of opus numbers. (In contrast with the common practice of the time, Beethoven chose his opus numbers himself, and the numbers chosen could at times be seriously at variance with the order of composition.) The author's conclusions have been controversial, partly because Beethoven has often been regarded as being quite poor at arithmetic. The author discusses this objection and aspects of methodology in some detail. Closely related topics: Numerology, Music, and Beethoven. "

    This is more what I was looking for. Karl just told me that Beethoven wrote a few of his pieces with a strong maths focus and had incorporated some magic boxes into some of his works. Strange, but cool.

    The Beethoven Number
    The Beethoven Number
    "In this pretentious little page, I'm defining one's unnormalized Beethoven number as the number of times one has performed a Beethoven symphony. The normalized ("true") Beethoven number is simply the number of Beethoven symphonies one has performed."

    How weird. I was looking for something else entirely. I guess my Beethoven number is 1. I must work harder on that. :)
