I was facinated to discover that the 7,5 system did a little better than the completely symmetrical 6,6 system.

This is very neat and important stuff. It's been claimed that the

Indian scales derive from a second-order-maximally-even 7-out-of-12-

out-of-22 construction, which would imply the symmetrical 12-tone

system above. However, the actual evidence supports the

omnitetrachordal system. So you're saying one might explain this

using some ratio of 7? Or did I misread this? I'd like to see/make

lattices of these.

I'm not sure what your question is; what I was saying is that we get a little better count of 7-limit intervals with the 7,5 system than with the 6,6 system in the 46-et, which I did not expect.

I could send you a gif file from Maple's graph-drawing program,of the sort I posted on the tuning list, but that would only be a starting point.

Sure. Now are there some 46-tET commas you did not take into account?

You didn't answer my "hyper-torus" point on the tuning list yet . . .

I wasn't clear what you meant, but there are topological considerations which come into graph theory. A graph can be a planar graph, for instance, or a graph on a quotient (cylinder or torus), so it can have a genus--it might be a graph on something with negative curvature. I plan on reading some graph theory and seeing if anything I run across suggests some application.

It shouldn't be so complicated. You can draw a big giant graph for

all of 72-tET, can't you?

Certainly. What are you getting at, though?

If you do that, you take _all_ the commas of 72-tET into account.

Here are the graphs. Looking at these, 12 might be a good place to center.

I'm not getting you. I'm connecting things via intervals; the commas do not directly enter the picture.

The note 31 would be the usual "tonic" of the Modern Indian Gamut

when equated with the 7,5 system.

Is there any way you could color the connecting lines, say, red for

ratios of 3, orange for ratios of 5, yellow for ratios of 7, green

for ratios of 9, and blue for ratios of 11?

I've been wishing I could do that very thing. The output is the Maple graph drawing program output; if I could figure out a way of getting it to change color, and also of drawing more than one graph at a time, it could be done, but it doesn't seem to be implimented.
