# No-twos subgroup temperaments

*(WIP, catalog of 3.5.7 subgroup rank two temperaments will eventually be redirected here)*

This is a collection of subgroup temperaments which omit the prime harmonic of 2. Because of the absence of octaves, these are all nonoctave scales using a period of a tritave, or if harmonic 3 is also excluded, 5/1.

# Overview by mapping of 5

Classified by focusing on the mapping of 5th harmonic, similar to Rank-2 temperaments by mapping of 3.

- Arcturus, Aldebaran and Polaris have a 3/1 period and ~5/3 generator. There is one-to-one correspondence between the 3.5 subgroup and mapped intervals.
- BPS has a ~9/7 generator, two of which give the ~5/3.
- Sirius has a ~25/21 generator, three of which give the ~5/3.
- Deneb has a ~11/9 generator, three of which give the ~9/5.
- Canopus has a ~7/5 generator, five of which give the ~27/5 (9/5 up a tritave).
- Alnilam has a ~81/55 generator, ten of which give the ~243/5 (9/5 up three tritaves).
- Izar has a ~16807/10125 generator, twelve of which give the ~2187/5 (9/5 up five tritaves).
- Nekkar has a ~16807/10935 generator, sixteen of which give the ~6561/5 (9/5 up six tritaves).
- Mintaka does not include the 5th harmonic, and has an ~11/7 generator, two of which give the ~27/11, and three of which give the ~27/7 (9/7 and a tritave).
- Antipyth uses 5/1 as a period, and has a ~7/5 generator. There is one-to-one correspondence between the 5.7 subgroup and mapped intervals.
- Juggernaut uses half-pentave(~11/5) as a period, and has a ~7/5 generator.

### Dubhe

This temperament is a simple 3.5.7.17 weak extension of BPS that splits the generator of 9/7 into two intervals of 17/15. The name was suggested by MidnightBlue after Dubhe, a bright double star (the ninth brightest) and similarities to the word "double".

## Nekkar

This temperament is the no-twos restriction of squares, and as such is named after a star that belonged to the obsolete constellation of Quadrans Muralis, whose name has to do with squares. However, seeing the sheer complexity and size of the commas, Nekkar is much more naturally thought of as 3.5.7.11 than 3.5.7, whereupon it becomes a strong extension of Mintaka.

Effectively a microtemperament, Alnilam takes a generator of an 81/55 flat fifth and equates 9 of them with 11/9. The name was given by CompactStar to continue with the theme of naming no-twos temperaments after proper star names, but also to indirectly reference mavila.
