monz, (on your eqtemp page) you included 1432. maybe you really meant

The ennealimmal line (171+441=612) isn't bad even in the 5-limit.

I've always liked it because of the 5^5, so I might have mentioned that. It's really a 7 (and 9) limit system anyway--in terms of the 2401/2400 beat phenomenon, it allots two steps to 2401/2400 (and one to 4375/4374.)

I don't see any similarity beyond the fact that they both have lines. Here we have lines going through [6,8,10], [7,9,11], [8,10,12], etc. instead of ets.

gene --

carl is correct. perhaps the situation would be clearer if each ET

were labeled, not by the total number of notes per octave, but by the

triad of numbers of notes per each of the consonant intervals. so

instead of 12 we'd have (3,4,5), instead of 19 we'd have (5,6,8), etc.

really, the two plots differ only in that one of them (any of the

sufficiently zoomed-in ET ones) shows all the triads whose intervals

are simply commensurable in log-frequency space, while the other (the

JI one) shows all the triads whose intervals are simply commesurable

in frequency space. many of the latter's lines are therefore slightly

curved on the graph in log-frequency space -- though the curvature is

barely visible at high zooms, it's easy to see here:

btw -- john chalmers -- if you're reading this -- i never got a

response to my last e-mail to you. is this plot the one you wanted to

use for XH?

Just like the 1-D scale tree. Say, how would you define "simply

commensurable"?

expressible in integers up to whatever 'limit' -- for example, < 999-

the diagrams are very similar because they both show the distribution

of simple-integer triads up to some limit (at least within the area

zoomed in on). the only difference is that the proportions for one

are defined in log-frequency space, the other in linear frequency

space.

How, exactly, does a plot of 5-limit ets show 7-9-11?

it doesn't. do you mean "what point in the et graph corresponds to

the point 7:9:11 in the just graph"? the answer depends how you map

things, but one way is to map 7:9:11 to the triad 0 7 9 in 11-equal.

I presumed that 7:9:11, considered as homogenous coordinates, was the same as the [7,9,11] et in the 5-limit, but either way we are back to my original answer that the similarity is simply that they both have lines, aren't we?

no, because the two graphs are almost identical, aside from a

slight "curve" in one of them.

Why don't you give a few examples of allegedly corresponding lines?

By the way, these sorts of graphs of points in homogenous coordinates can be thought of as picturing a part of a projective plane, which suggests the possibility of looking at the dual graph, where the points become lines and vice-versa. In the 5-limit case, the commas would now be represented by points, and the ets by lines.

A cool idea.

Also, these graphs appear to have scaling symmetry. In

the limit, are they black, or is there still whitespace?

Does their 'Lebesgue measure' tell us this?

*any* line!!! don't you see, the two graphs are identical (up to a

logarithmic "squish"), they plot a point for every a:b:c that is in

lowest terms, up to some limit. it's the higher-dimensional analogue

of the farey series, etc. it appears to be some sort of fractal.

i would like very much to look at this dual graph, please give me

some information on how to create it, view it, etc. i'd especially

like it if it could have triangular symmetry like my latest "it's

getting better all the time" ET graph. thanks!

since we're basically talking about the rationals in the reals

(except in a two-dimensional analogue), the density is always zero

(there's "infinitely" more white than black), but there are an

infinite number of black points in any region, no matter how small.

You seem to be saying they are the same becuase they are both the projective plane over Q, or a part of it.

If you have a point [x, y, z] in homogenous coordinates, the equation of a line passing through it will be

Ax + By + Cz = 0

You can now represent the line as a point [A, B, C] in the dual plane, where now [x, y, z] becomes a line.

unfortunately, i don't know what that means. i know that Q is the

rationals, but what's the name of the set that includes "4:5:6"

and "10:12:15" but not "8:10:12"? that's the set of points we're

plotting in both graphs, with three axes at 120-degree angles

representing the three intervals in the triad.

i was hoping for something better, but i think i may see the answer

already -- for each linear temperament, i simply plot the *unison

vector*, right? let's see . . . 12-equal banishes [-4,1], [0,3],

[4,2], [8,1] . . . well the last three do lie on a straight line,

but . . . then there's the negatives of all of these . . . is it

unavoidable that we'll have considerably more than one line for each

ET? in the ETs-as-points graph, i cut down on the number by

insisisting that at least one of the just consonances be represented

by its best approximation . . . can i do something similar here?

The projective plane over Q are triples of rational numbers

[x,y,z] such that if q is any non-zero rational, the [qx,qy,qz]

represents the same point. This implies that up to sign, a point is

represented by [a,b,c] where a, b, and c are relatively prime integers.

This means that 4:5:6 and 8:10:12 are the same point; reducing

8:10:12 by the gcd gives us 4:5:6.

Those are affine coordinates; you can projectivize them to

[-4,1,1], [0,3,1], etc. But remember, [-4,1,1] and [4,-1,-1] are the same point!

More natural would be to take [-4,4,-1], [-7,0,3] etc. as points on a projective plane, and [12,19,28] as the line through them. 3-limit commas would end up as points at infinity that way, though.

There's one line for each val; how many vals an ET gets is up to you.

I should add that there is no problem graphing points at infinity!

then you've got it! both graphs show this same structure. this

structure has baffled me for almost a decade. i learned many of the

wonderful properties of the farey series in one dimension, and

wondered if there were any analogous properties in this two-

dimensional structure. no one in the yale math faculty seemed to have

a clue. we've explored these questions mainly on harmonic_entropy, so

if you have any responses, please post them there.

what does this mean? and how does this address their non-

collinearity? please reply to the rest of this on tuning-math, to
