When I suggested to switch to JavaScript

on Talk:31-limit, I did not primarily think on doing it right within the Wiki. I even think that user-specific JS isn't enabled here ...
Is there any place where this could be tried out first without fighting against wiki limitations of some sort?

Hello, I have a Wordpress website under construction but I don't know JavaScript. Best regards.

I see, I am also a newcomer in this respect, but it seems to be the current hottest language. If I get an idea what your point is, I could try to implemenent it somewhere. As I understand it so far, there is a big 1 in the middle and then a Cartesian coordinate system around it with prime factors not exceeding 31 above or below the fraction line, right? --Xenwolf (talk) 18:45, 14 May 2020 (UTC)


Yes, the rules are :


1) 1/1 is the center of symmetry between reciprocals.

2) The positive abscissa is the Pythagorean scale. The negative abscissa is deducted by rule 1.

3) The positive ordinate is the 5-31 quasi-primes scale, presented as follow:

a ; a*a ;

b ; a*b ; a-1*b ; b*b ;

c ; a*c ; a-1*c ; b*c ; b-1*c ; c*c ;

d ; a*d ; a-1*d ; b*d ; b-1*d ; c*d ; c-1*d ; d*d ; etc...

The negative ordinate is deducted by rule 1.

4) 5-limit allows also a*a*a and its symmetrical reciprocal


Below is a piece of Python code doing it (better solutions may be possible):

primes=[2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31]
   
# reciprocal of a given monzo
def reciprocal(monzo):
   for p in range(0,len(monzo)):
       monzo[p]*=-1
   return(monzo)
   
# ABSCISSA MONZOS LIST
x_axis=[]
for a in range(0,26+1):
   # pythagorean interval 
   monzo=[0]*len(primes)
   monzo[1]+=a
   
   # insert it at the end of the list  
   x_axis.append(monzo)
   
   # insert its reciprocal at the beginning of the list, so that 1/1 is the center of symmetry between reciprocals
   x_axis.insert(0,reciprocal(monzo.copy()))
   
# ORDINATE MONZOS LIST
y_axis=[]
   
# insert 1/1
monzo=[0]*len(primes)
y_axis.insert(0,monzo)
   
# first prime
for a in range(2,len(primes)):   
   # pure harmonic series
   monzo=[0]*len(primes)
   monzo[a]+=1
   
   # insert the pure harmonic at the beginning of the list
   y_axis.insert(0,monzo) 
   
   # insert its subharmonic version at the end of the list, so that 1/1 is the center of symmetry between reciprocals
   y_axis.append(reciprocal(monzo.copy()))    
   
   # second prime   
   for b in range(2,a+1):
       
       # combine the pure harmonic with another prime, both by putting it in the numerator or in the denominator
       for c in range(1,-1-1,-2):
           monzo=[0]*len(primes)
           monzo[a]+=1
           
           # when c=1, the second prime is put in the numerator ; when c=-1, the second prime is put in the denominator
           monzo[b]+=c
           
           # before inserting, eliminate the cases where the first and the second prime are reciprocal
           if(monzo!=[0]*len(primes)):
               
               # insert the combination at the beginning 
               y_axis.insert(0,monzo)
               
               # insert its reciprocal at the end, so that 1/1 is the center of symmetry between reciprocals
               y_axis.append(reciprocal(monzo.copy()))
               
               # insert 125/64 exception and its reciprocal
               if(monzo==[0,0,2,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0]):
                   monzo[2]+=1
                   y_axis.insert(0,monzo)
                   y_axis.append(reciprocal(monzo.copy()))

# CARTESIAN COORDINATE PLANE OF MONZOS
table=[]
for y in range(0,len(y_axis)):
   row=[]
   for x in range(0,len(x_axis)):
       monzo=[]
       for a in range(0,len(primes)):
           # combine the abscissa monzo and the ordinate monzo
           monzo.append(x_axis[x][a]+y_axis[y][a])
       row.append(monzo)
   table.append(row)

##### SHOW RESULT #####
print(table)

Would be curious to see your implementation :)

Subpage helper

Hi Contribution,
You might be interested in a wiki function that creates an inline list of subpages: {{Special:PrefixIndex/{{FULLPAGENAME}}/}} (could be helpful on your user page).

Factor limit suggestion

Hi Contribution,
Your factor limit idea looks quite interesting to me. Just a few thoughts: 1-factor-limit seems to include the prime harmonic series and its inverse (and what about 0-factor-limit being 1)?.
Maybe also the (obviously abandoned) prime interval attempt could be worth reading (some open questions there).

Moving pages around

Hi Contribution,
I've seen you move wiki pages to strange places after you deleted their content. Maybe it's your way to try to get a page "deleted" somehow.
I built a tool to say "please delete this page" to one of the operators. A short description is on Help:Help, I hope that helps.

A BIG Thanks

... for all the work you did adding all the Helmholtz-Ellis notation symbols! Especially that you did it in SVG, make them an ideal base for derivates and images using them. Thanks again. --Xenwolf (talk) 08:31, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
