A060526 A list of equal temperaments (equal divisions of the octave) whose nearest scale steps are closer and closer approximations to the ratios of six simple musical tones: 8/7 5/4 4/3 3/2 8/5 7/4. 10
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 15, 19, 21, 22, 31, 53, 84, 87, 94, 99, 118, 130, 140, 171, 270, 410, 441, 612, 935, 966, 1053, 1106, 1277, 1547, 1578, 2954, 3125, 3566, 6691, 9816, 11664, 14789, 18355, 39835, 48545, 54624, 58190, 59768, 63334, 81689, 84814 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The sequence was found by a computer search of all of the equal divisions of the octave from 1 to over 84814.

The numerical value of each term represents a musical scale based on an equal division of the octave. 12, for example, signifies the scale which is formed by dividing the octave into 12 equal parts.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..50.

FORMULA

Recurrence: the next term equals the current term plus one or more of the previous terms: a(n+1) = a(n) + a(n-x)... + a(n-y)... +a(n-z)..., etc.

EXAMPLE

84 = 53 + the previous term 31. Again, 291152 = 103169 + the previous terms (84814 + 81689 + 11664 + 9816).
