On March 24, I posted a contest question concerning the physics and mathematics of drumheads. The answer to the question is Bessel. I uploaded documentation on Bessel functions in the Techtalk section of the website. Check it out!
I received many emails for the contest and I was very happy to see your enthusiasm for the topic! The winner was randomly chosen. I am proud to announce that the winner is Olivier Neron! Congratulations Olivier! You will soon receive the autographed drumhead used on the Quo Vadis 2007 European tour and a pair of signature sticks! Here are the names of the participants who answered the question correctly. Good work!
|Metroid Aran||Muhammad Azri||Enda|
|Jacques Gautreau||Bjoern Jakoby||Louis Johnson|
|Axel Kurello||James Marshall||Olivier Neron|

Thanks to all of you for your interest in the topic! I received a few comments concerning the contest which I would like to share with you. Here is what some of you had to say.
“It’s a really good idea to do this game. You can give pleasure to a music fan and you can also share your second passion with us: physics.”
“By the way, cialis generic I truly enjoyed this question, it helped me grasp physics notions applied to a drumhead, and I found it very interesting!”
I am glad that you enjoyed the contest! Thank you!
