ARCHIVED WIKISPACES DISCUSSION BELOW
Please do not add any new discussion to this archive page.
All new discussion should go on Talk:Würschmidt family.
I'm bringing the Xenwiki into line with Graham's site

I think Doppelwuerschmidt should be removed unless it can be provided with a definition and an explanation for why it is interesting.

I don't see the problem - yes maybe it could renamed Double Wuerschmidt, and consonanzen reads sligtly denglish, but why not?
I discovered, for instance, that 5th harmonic is skipped and 128/125 is avoided...
What is the difference between the definition of Doppelwuerschmidt and - say - the definition of Wurschmidt?
- xenwolf November 13, 2011, 11:49:48 PM UTC-0800
It seems to me that "Doppelwuerschmidt" is practically identical to skwares.
If you think you like Doppelwuerschmidt, what you like is probably skwares. The 25th harmonic has very little to do with it.

Is doppelwuerschmidt just 2-wuerschmidt?
- mbattaglia1 November 14, 2011, 04:53:51 AM UTC-0800
It's 2-wuerschmidt yes. It seemed a notable scale construction to me (I put it in there after all) but if y'all want to take it out, at least be sure to include some mention of how skwares relates to wuerschmidt.
But if a double wuerschmidt is not notable, neither should be a half //, which is there too. If you go down that path you might end up with infinitessimal generators.
In my opinion, if we're talking a difference the magnitude of ten cents in the generator it has a good shot at being a different temperament. For that matter I find 14/9 and 25/16 distinct intervals.

Whoa whoa whoa, what is this difference of ten cents?? Optimal doppelwuerschmidt and optimal skwares are extremely similar. Twice the TE wuerschmidt generator is 774.87 cents, and the TE skwares generator is 775.00 cents. That's a difference of 0.13 cents, not 10 cents.
- keenanpepper November 14, 2011, 11:26:44 AM UTC-0800
Between 25/16 and 14/9 just, not necessarily the optimal generator. Is double the optimal TE wuerschmidt generator still optimal for "doppelwuerschmidt"/skwares?
I'm not opposed to just linking them, just trying to be sure.
- Kosmorsky November 14, 2011, 11:45:42 AM UTC-0800
Actually, yeah, you're probably right.
- Kosmorsky November 14, 2011, 11:50:04 AM UTC-0800
Here are 1200-2*POTE for various temperaments in the family:
5-limit Wuerschmidt: 424.402
7-limit Wurschmidt: 425.234
7-limit Worschmidt: 425.216
7-limit Whirrschmidt: 424.238
We can compare this to:
7-limit Squares: 425.942
11-limit Squares: 425.957
13-limit Squares: 425.550

Beautiful, thank you all.
