In 13-limit just intonation, 15/13, the tridecimal semifourth is an interval measuring about 247.7¢. In the language of Margo Schulter, 15/13 is an instance of an interseptimal interval, as it falls in an ambiguous zone between two septimal extremes – namely the large major second 8/7 and the small minor third 7/6. (15/13)×(13/10) = 3/2, which implies that 15/13 and 13/10 make a 3/2 perfect fifth. Thus you can make a root-3rd-P5 triad that goes 26:30:39, with a 15/13 inframinor third up from the root. When being used as type of second, it is given the name ultramajor second as it is even sharper than 8/7 which is often called a "supermajor second".
