Ive been reading this site some and learning more and more about the characteristics of good sound in Violin construction. The science is what interests me most, and I am most fascinated by. Interestingly along that vein is that the leaps in science that describe sound and the physics of vibration etc were discovered only a few years before the great Luthiers began thier craft. So new and revolutionary were the discoveries surely Amati and Strad applied this knowledge to their craft. So what if it hadnt been discovered yet? All of this coinciding with the existence of the right kind of wood in the right area? Heck, if all this had been discovered a couple hundred years later there would be people talking about my kin in the Mts of NorthCarolina, man, that Bubba Pait shore makes a mean fiddl! 

good thing physics was discovered when it was is all I am sayin!

cheerleaderAin't the internet the coolest place!!!

I find stuff like that all the time and usually either download the pdf's to my digital library or download and save the webpage as a pdf for later reading and reference.

 

THAT was an incredible chunk of violin info.

 

Thanks for the contribution!thumbs-up

youre welcome, just stumbled upon it in my wanderings. Im looking for the scientific basis for Todd Ehles argument that a new instrument needs to vibrate long and slow to "settle in". And that that improved sound as a result of settling in can be lost if its not played for years or so. Which is also the argument for why the strads and del gesus shouldnt be left unplayed as museum pieces.

Well, my friend PF, the heading says EVERYTHING i wanted to know. Here is what I want to know.

 

How does Stochastic control of drift diffusion conform to a Backward Kolmogorov equation?

PF, I do appreciate your efforts, but that document only describes the formulation of the Stochastic effects and its rudimentary principles. It hardly diverts to an arrangement maniupulated by and in relation to a Kolmogorov effect (by means of the reversely derived computation- of course).    ;)

 

Well now, I could be mistaken in my initial observation. It seems this enlightening manuscript does touch on the integration of the SDE with respect to convergence and expansion algorithms (of course within the bounds of Drift with continuity and diffusion) - You have indeed answered my question.  :)

I don't see where the inverse derivative of gravity is factored in... did I miss that? I must've skipped class that day...

Can you explain this in terms of Silly Putty so I can understand it?

honestly and simply allows a calculation to show sometimes thing changes in a infinitely small portion of time while other things remain unchanged. It tries to predict the behavior of events monitored.

This is why, "Bose", put acoustic's into their sound system's.
