This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A215606 Number of ordered interval sequences in Schoenberg 12-tone rows that contain n unique intervals. 0
4, 140, 8472, 157056, 1629912, 7050672, 13962864, 11951592, 4526544, 606408, 23136 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



A Schoenberg 12-tone row is a permutation of the integers from 0 to 11. It is assumed the first element is 0 so there are 11! 12-tone rows. The ordered interval sequence is the 1st-order difference modulo 12.

There are 4 ordered interval sequences that contain only one interval: all 1s, all 5s, all 7s, and all 11s. One of the 140 that contain 2 unique intervals is [1,9,1,9,1,9,1,9,1,9,1,9], and one of the 8472 that contain 3 unique intervals is [5,4,5,4,5,4,4,3,3,3,4,4]. The 23136 sequences with 11 unique intervals are the famous All-Interval Sequences first determined by Bauer-Mengelberg and Ferentz in 1965.
