# Amity

Amity is the microtemperament tempering out the amity comma, 1600000/1594323, in the 5-limit. This article also assumes the canonical mapping for 7, which means tempering out 4375/4374 and 5120/5103 in the 7-limit. Equal temperaments that support amity include 46, 53, 99, 152, and 205.

Extending amity from the 7-limit to the 11-limit is not so simple. There are three mappings that are comparable in complexity and error: undecimal amity (53 & 152), catamite (46 & 145), and hitchcock (46 & 53). Undecimal amity tempers out 540/539 and has the harmonic 11 mapped to -62 generator steps. Catamite tempers out 441/440 and has the harmonic 11 mapped to +37 generators steps. Hitchcock tempers out 121/120 and has the harmonic 11 mapped to -9 steps. They can be extended to the 13-limit through 352/351, and results in 625/624 and 729/728 being tempered out in 13-limit amity, 196/195 and 364/363 being tempered out in catamite, and 169/168 and 325/324 being tempered out in hitchcock. In the 17-limit, hitchcock tempers out 154/153, 256/255, and 273/272.
