The schisma, 32805/32768, is the difference between the Pythagorean comma and the syntonic comma. It is equal to (9/8)3/(64/45). Tempering it out gives a 5-limit microtemperament called schismatic, schismic or Helmholtz, which if extended to larger subgroups leads to the schismatic family of temperaments.
