Jamesbond, Catler, etc.

Are temperaments such as Jamesbond and Catler going to be omitted from this tree because they become rank-1 when restricted to the 5 limit?

They're perfectly good rank-2 temperaments in the 7 limit.

You can see what I did with omicronbeta. Do you think that is a good approach?

Maybe a better on would be to have a top level of 7edo, 12edo, 31edo, 72edo etc temperaments when the badness figures are low enough to warrent it.

What is this?

What makes this a tree? What are the numbers; some kind of badness?

it's also an orphaned page :-(

It's a work in progress. The numbers are logflat badness, and what makes it a tree is hypertext.

I meant what logically makes it a tree, rather than, say, a directed acyclic graph.

See if the explanation I've put at the top helps.

Would it be perhaps helpful if I coded up a nice JS interface for this, allowing you to show and hide branches from the tree? That way we'd only have one page instead of a hundred.

That sounds like a fine idea, but would it be editable?

- genewardsmith November 29, 2011, 11:25:45 PM UTC-0800

Sure, but I'm still trying to figure out exactly what you have in mind with this; it's quite mysterious for now. This is basically a list of 5-limit temperaments, and then you click on one and it shows you all the children, right?
