← 317edo | 318edo | 319edo → |

**318 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **318edo** or **318ed2**), also called **318-tone equal temperament** (**318tet**) or **318 equal temperament** (**318et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 318 equal parts of about 3.77 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/318}, or the 318th root of 2.

318edo is contorted in both the 3-limit and the 5-limit, sharing the same mappings with 53edo. Besides, it shares its representations of the 11th and 17th harmonics with 159edo. However, compared to 159edo, the patent vals differ on the mappings for 7, 13, and 19.

In the 5-limit, it tempers out the same commas as 53edo, including the schisma (32805/32768), the kleisma (15625/15552), the amity comma (1600000/1594323), the semicomma (2109375/2097152), the vulture comma (10485760000/10460353203), etc. In the 7-limit it tempers out the stearnsma (118098/117649) and 589824/588245. In the 11-limit it tempers out the swetisma (540/539), the wizardharry (4000/3993), the kalisma (9801/9800) and the nexus comma (1771561/1769472). In the 13-limit, 1575/1573, 2080/2079, it tempers out the schismina (4096/4095), and the cantonisma (10985/10976).

At only slightly more than 3.5 cents, the step size of 318edo is really close to being unnoticeable as is the case with other mega-EDOs in this vicinity, so the steps themselves run a pretty high risk of blending completely into one another.
