The Mathematics of the Harp: Modeling the Classical Instrument and Designing Futuristic Ones
Abstract / Synopsis
We analyze and model the neck of the classical harp based on the length of the strings, their tension and density. We then use the results to design new and innovative harp shapes by adjusting the parameters of the model.
