# Decic

Decic is a temperament for the 7, 11, 13, and 17 prime limits. It is a member of marvel temperaments, cloudy clan, and linus temperaments. It has a period of 1/10 octave and tempers out 225/224 and 16807/16384. The fifth of decic in size is a meantone fifth, but four of them are not used to reach the 5th harmonic. Instead, 14/13, 15/14 and 16/15 are equated to 1/10 of an octave, and from this it derives its name. Not only the meantone fifth (flat 3/2) or fourth (sharp 4/3), but also the magic major third (flat 5/4) can be used as a generator.

There are three mappings for 11, 13 and 17-limit that are comparable in complexity and error: decic (10&50), splendecic (10e&50) and prodecic (10&50e). They share the comma list of the no-elevens subgroups, tempering out 105/104, 170/169, 196/195 and 289/288. Decic adds 385/384, splendecic adds 4375/4376, and prodecic adds 441/440 to the 11-limit comma list.
