An abstract topology for 5-Limit Just Intonation Chromatic Scales

JustChromaticTopology titlepageEach pattern defines a Class of Just scales, each Class embodying twelve primary modes (not presented here). Symmetrical structures are centred in the page; whereas, non-symmetrical patterns are paired by complementarity. Historical references are presented where appropriate. The classification progresses from generally “horizontal” tuning to generally “vertical” tunings.
