I forgot to check these for Minkowski reduction. The rest are

Minkowski reduced, but this one reduces to <2401/2400, 245/243>

Can you explain what "map" and "adjusted map" mean? What about the

mapping from generators to primes (which seems most important of all)?

Hmm . . . I thought one of the generators had to be 1/N octaves, N

integer. So what's going on here?

It's not clear to me that the tuning's improved. 5/3, 7/3, and 7/5

are all better in 68-tET.

Can you give the whole list, that you did LLL-reduced, Minkowski

reduced instead? How about the ETs?

"Map" is what I get by LLL reducing the dual group to the two basis

intervals. "Adjusted map" takes linear combinations of the columns of

this matrix to get a generator/interval of repetition system. The

columns are vals in prime notation, and hence are maps to primes.

It's the difference between "map" and "adjusted map". This one seemed

interesting to look at, as well as the adjusted one.

Well, of course it's improved in a least-squares sense at any rate,

but the close-to-exact values of the 5 and 7 would be good in wide

interval contexts with sustained harmony, whereas the difference

between 5/3 7/3 and 7/5 does not seem so interesting. In fact,

however, this is another system which seems as if one might just as

well leave it in an et.

No comprendo.

Oh, so the first column is the coefficient on a, and the second is

the coefficient on b?

I'd like to understand this better.

Hmm . . . wide interval contexts? You mean bass-soprano dyadic

counterpoint??

Usually this means I LLL reduce two of the ets I get in my list of

ets, and the ets in question are ones which have both basis elements

in the kernel. The intersection of the two kernels is the set of

intervals generated by the two basis elements, which is a group of

rank two. Dual to it is the group of rank two consisting of integral

combinations of two ets. Lattice basis reduction reduces this from a

two et basis to a basis of two vals which tell me the number of

generator steps for a prime--they are generator vals, you might say.

If we use a Tenney metric on intervals, we induce a dual metric on

the vals, which is a sup norm (maximum of absolute values) with an

adjustment of dividing the 3 row by log2(3), etc.

Is this something we need to try to explain? I think if I could

explain it to you (which I suspect this isn't quite doing yet) then

we should be able to get the point across, but how theoretical should

things get?

Yes, to get to each prime in turn. The first row tells you how many

a's and how many b's to get a 2, and so forth.

That's where this might be noticed. It's pretty small differences we

are discussing.
