# Schismic-counterpyth equivalence continuum

The schismic-counterpyth equivalence continuum is a continuum of 5-limit temperaments which equate a number of schismas (32805/32768) with counterpyth comma ([65 -41). This continuum is theoretically interesting in that these are all 5-limit microtemperaments.

All temperaments in the continuum satisfy (32805/32768)n ~ [65 -41. Varying n results in different temperaments listed in the table below. It converges to schismic as n approaches infinity. If we allow non-integer and infinite n, the continuum describes the set of all 5-limit temperaments supported by 41edo (due to it being the unique equal temperament that tempers both commas and thus tempers all combinations of them). The just value of n is approximately 10.1575233481..., and temperaments having n near this value tend to be the most accurate ones.

For a similar but perhaps more intuitive and practical concept, see Schismic-Pythagorean equivalence continuum.
