COMMENTS

Since the 1division is distinct and consistent in the 1limit, the sequence starts there. From a purely musical point of view one might prefer to begin the sequence at 3.  Gene Ward Smith, Mar 29 2006

EXAMPLE

9EDO is consistent and distinct through the 5 limit because 6/5, 5/4, 4/3, 3/2, 8/5 and 5/3 map to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 steps respectively and all the compositions of those intervals are consistent.
