A061920


A list of equal temperaments (equal divisions of the octave) whose nearest scale steps are closer and closer approximations to the 7 pairs of complementary target ratios needed to express the 12 unsymmetrical steps of the untempered (Just Intonation) scale known as the Duodene: 3/2 and 4/3, 5/4 and 8/5, 6/5 and 5/3, 9/8 and 16/9, 10/9 and 9/5, 16/15 and 15/8 and 45/32 and 64/45.

COMMENTS

The sequence was found by a computer search of all the equal divisions of the octave from 1 to 714321. The numerical value of each term represents a musical scale based on an equal division of the octave. The term 12, for example, signifies the scale which is formed by dividing the octave into 12 equal parts.

FORMULA

Recurrence Rule: The next term equals the current term plus one or more previous terms: a(n+1) = a(n) + a(nx)... + a(ny)... + a(nz), etc.


EXAMPLE

118 = 53 + [34 + 31]; Again, 69413 = 57137 + [4296 + 3684 + 2513 + 1783].
