I think it's another system, discussed below. The wedgie you find from

the pyth comma and 5120/5103 gives what we are calling a linear

temperament. It is [0,12,12,-6,-19,19], and has a TM reduced basis

<50/49, 3645/3584>. The mapping is

[[12, 19, 28, 34], [0, 0, -1, -1]]

However, the rms optimum is 23.4 cents apart, not 15.

I think what you want is the linear temperament with wedgie

[0,12,12,-6,-19,19], TM reduced basis

<225/224, 250047/250000> and mapping [[12,19,28,34],[0,0,-1,-1]]. You can

use the 72 or 84 ets for this.

By the way, is 250047/250000 not deserving of a little recognition?

Hello

Does anybody know if the mathematic term "rational" means "ritos" in Greek ?

I can't find it in a dictionary now , and I am confused.

This is the same mapping as above. Did you mean for the last term to

be -2, not -1? I know Waage proposed this system; who's Compton?

That's it. Maybe this should be the Waage or Compton temperament?

Wedgie: <<0 12 24 19 38 22||

TM basis: {225/224, 250047/250000}

TOP tuning: <1200.617051 1900.976998 2784.880964 3368.630668|

TOP error: 0.617051 cents

TOP complexity: 8.548972490

TOP badness: 45.097

Not that the last two of these figures mean much without something to

compare them to.
