Euler-Lagrange Equations for Hypergestures
This chapter deals with a model from mathematical physics of string theory that describes the transition from symbolic reality to physical reality of musical gestures. We demonstrate, using multidimensional Fourier theory and Green functions, that the physical gesture can be viewed as a function of a potential and the symbolic gesture. The role of this potential is however not fully understood to date, but the idea is that it should encompass artistic rationales, together with physical components.
