# Breedsmic-syntonic equivalence continuum

The breedsmic-syntonic equivalence continuum is a continuum of 7-limit temperament families which equate a number of breedsmas (2401/2400) with a syntonic comma (81/80). This continuum is theoretically interesting in that these are all 7-limit temperament families supported by squares temperament. In addition, 81/80 and 2401/2400 are the smallest 5-limit and 7-limit superparticular intervals to be tempered out by 31edo.

All temperaments in the continuum satisfy (2401/2400)n ~ 81/80. Varying n results in different temperament families listed in the table below. It converges to breedsmic as n approaches infinity. If we allow non-integer and infinite n, the continuum describes the set of all 7-limit temperament families supported by squares (due to it being the unique rank-2 temperament that tempers both commas and thus tempers all combinations of them). The just value of n is approximately 29.82025..., and temperaments having n near this value tend to be the most accurate ones.
