Pictures, Pop Bottles and Pills

Pictures, Pop Bottles and Pills: Kodak Electronics Technology That Made a Better World But Didn’t Save the Day describes Kodak electronics and equipment technology from 1960 to the present. It draws some conclusions about why Kodak was not successful in making the digital transformation it fueled. At the same time, it is a celebration of the best Kodak moments in electronic and digital technology.

Mathematical Concepts in Music
George A. Articolo ’61 • CreateSpace, 2013

Mathematical Concepts in Music

This book examines the natural connection between music and mathematics, including the mathematical basis of Western scales and the hierarchy of harmony in terms of ratios. The subjective notions of musical consonance and dissonance are shown to have a quantitative measure based on simple mathematical models of sensory perception. Mathematical constructs and models are shown to be an aid in both the analysis and the synthesis of musical composition.

George Articolo ’61 is an emeritus professor of mathematics at Rutgers University and has written several books on partial differential equations.
