This is an ebook for musical temperament; much of the material is suited for a college-level, general-science course on the physics or mathematics of sound and music. Caveat emptor: I believe these notes to be of high quality, but they are not “mature” yet in the sense that there may still be many typos in the manuscript. I will put corrections in as I find them, and you can always contact me if you have corrections or comments.
You can download the notes here as one big file: (pdf, ~60MB). This is a pdf file that includes many embedded audio examples; these play correctly in Acrobat Reader, but not all pdf readers. See the Usage section in the beginning for more inforamtion.
Instructors may contact me for a version with solutions to problems included.
If you use these notes for your class, please let me know!
