There are plenty of songs that appeal to the theme of applied mathematics and operations research. Among those, bands that perform djent music – a style of metal music often referred to as math-metal – favor the use of compressed, low-tone guitar riffs as well as names and lyrics that have a strong math reference. For instance, the British formation TesseracT may well be the highest dimensional metal band related to a regular polytope.
As some of you may know, in addition to OR, I also have a passion for music.As such, I would like to join the trend and form a band devoted to both operations research and djent music. The band would probably be called Eigenvector, unless someone has a better name to propose. The band would write lengthy compositions which would be submitted to a peer review process of masked djent musicians from established bands.
The chapters of the first album are currently in progress:

- Davy Jones’ ship has a convex hull
- Our basis is optimal
- Please be my dual
- The largest clique in town (is NP-hard to find)
