There are six 7-limit linear temperaments which are on the list of 66

obtained from pairs of commas which did not turn up on the list of

505 obtained from pairs of ets. They seem to be ones which are so

closely tied to one particular et that they don't show up by studying

pairs. Also for some reason there are two 9/7-systems on the list.

(1) [6,10,10,-5,1,2] ets: 22

[0 2]

[3 1]

[5 1]

[5 2]

a = 7.98567775 / 22 (~9/7) ; b = 1/2

measure 3165

This is what I called a "unique facet" of the 22-et; that seems to be

why it does not turn up on the other list.

(2) [-4,-16,-9,24,3,-16] ets: 31

[ 0 1]

[ -4 3]

[-16 8]

[ -9 6]

a = 11.00394377 / 31 (~9/7) ; b = 1

measure 3197

A completely different supermajor third system, this one associated

to the 31-et.

(3) [-8,-13,-4,27,-16,-2] ets: 19

[ 0 1]

[-8 2]

[-13 3]

[-4 3]

a = .997597215 / 19; b = 1

measure 6149

The 19-et owns this one, obviously.

(4) [10,14,14,-7,6,-1] ets: 26

[0 2]

[5 2]

[7 3]

[7 4]

a = 3.026421762 / 26; b = 1/2

measure 8510

(5) [0,-12,-12,6,19,-19]

[ 0 12]

[ 0 19]

[-1 28]

[-1 34]

a = 23.40769169 cents; b = 100 cents

measure 9556

(6) [-2,4,-30,-81,42,11] ets: 46,80

[ 0 2]

[-1 4]

[ 2 3]

[-15 18]

a = 33.01588032 / 80 (~4/3); b = 1/2

measure 26079

That's a good indication that Graham may have missed these too, since

he also started from pairs of ETs . . . Graham?

You know, I was just going to ask you what happened to this one, as I

remember it from the even earlier survey that you and Graham did,

coming from my list of commas.

Oh yeah, this one again!

So this _isn't_ 46+34??

It is, but it won't show up as the *sum* of ets, only as the

difference. This is because the 34-et map in question is

h80 - h46, and that isn't h34 in the 7-limit, since h34(7)=95 and

(h80-h46)(7)=96. Maybe adding in a list of differences would be a

good idea.

The generator you get from the 46+34 method is 7/80, which

compliments 33/80 if that has you worried: 7/80 + 33/80 = 1/2.

The consequence of being 46+34 of course is that this system is a

hell of a lot better in the 5-limit than it is in the 7-limit; the

5-limit comma I get from the wedgie is 2048/2025--the diaschisma.

Graham devotes a web page to the diaschismic temperament as a 5-limit

temperament, where it makes a lot of sense.

Hmm . . . you keep avoiding my whining about consistency (most

recently with regard to 21), and this would seem to be a good place

to bring it up again. You told Graham that something like 46+34 to

you would be _defined_ so that the 80 would come out right, not

necessarily the individual ETs. Now you seem to be contradicting

yourself. What gives?

And you brought up 80 when we were discussing ways of extending

diaschismic to 11-limit, if you recall . . . probably this same

mapping through the 7-limit.

By 46+34 I mean a particular system of generators in the 80-et, and

that is determined without reference to what the maps are. Graham

means by it the associated linear temperament, and that is *not*

determined without reference to the maps, and so is not strictly well-

defined. It is determined only mod 40 if you assume it should follow

the 46+34 of the 80-et.

The point being, there was more than one sensible way to do it, which

were the same in the 80-et but not as linear temperaments.

Yes, it looks like Gene's doing the same search as me, and so he's finding

the same weaknesses. I did point this one out before, so I'm not sure why

he isn't doing a different search, more in line with his thinking.

So again, if you take each consistent ET and choose each possible

generator, you can get a list of linear temperaments that way. It gets

messy, because there's more than one mapping for each generator. In fact,

that sounds much like the very problem we're trying to solve in the first

place.

If anybody wants to do some real work, this is something to look at.

Gene, when I called you on this before you were definitely talking about

temperaments. I wouldn't have mentioned it otherwise.

I was talking about 34&46, not 34+46; the first is not well-defined,

which was the point of my example.

Well, he is -- he _also_ started from unison vectors and found the

slippery six (I bet there are simpler examples too). _My_ thinking

would be to _only_ start from unison vectors, _not_ ETs. I gave a

heuristic on _which_ unison vectors are most likely to help when they

are part of a reduced basis.

Hmm . . . I'm not sure I see it that way.

I guess so, but it's not a route I would probably travel.
