Music and Measure Theory

This is a beautiful video from 3blue1brown. He shows a connection between measure theory (a topic studied in mathematical analysis), and music. Have a look.

I even got a chance to email him to ask about how he does his animations. It was clear that he used LaTeX to typeset his equations, but he told me that the animations are done using a Python script he developed. He has posted his code on his gitHub account. The animation results are so impressive, it’s tempting me to pick up and learn Python just so that I can do this.

    This is super cool – where did you find this?

    I found it by accident. Just looking through random mathematics videos online on measure theory.
