- What is the mathematical basis for hearing?
- How does math explain hearing?
- What are Fourier series?
- What are resonant terms?
- How do you find a particular solution to a Fourier series?

This is a really interesting application of resonance and vibrations. You will learn how Fourier series and the vibration of air waves explains how we can hear musical notes. You will also learn how to find particular solutions using Fourier analysis. A really important and interesting lecture in differential equations.
