i'm using the formula Gene posted, which i generalized to:

but oops! ... i realize now that this is still not entirely

generalized.

all those numbers (7,12,7,-2,5) are from a particular set of

homomorphisms (the first Schoenberg PB Gene calculated, back

around Christmas), and need to be replaced by variables.

i don't really know what to call them, so i'll just make this

do: {hv, hw, hx, hy, hz}. it's the top row of numbers in the

adjoint (or is it a unimodular inverse?) of the kernel.

so the generalized formula really is:

for a set of i rational unison-vectors {u1/v1, u2/v2,... ui/vi},

where {hx, hy, ...hq} is the top row of the unimodular adjoint

of the kernel matrix of the unison-vectors, for any non-zero

I can define a scale by calculating for 0 <= n < d :

step[n] = (u1/v1)^round(hx*n/d) * (u2/v2)^round(hy*n/d)

* ... (ui/vi)^round(hq*n/d) .

oops ... that last bit should read * ... (ui/vi)^round(hi*n/d) .

I would call those hv(2), hw(2), hx(2), hy(2) and hz(2), where the h's are vals, which you can equate to column vectors.

So why is there an "extra vector" used in constructing the PB? Is

this just an arbitrary vector independent of the others, or is it a

step vector, or what?

It's the step vector, the rest are the commas.

aha! monz please take note.
