6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)I came across this approximation for the 6th root of 2. igloo myrtilles fourmis #2 20060801 03:28:37
Re: 6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)Where does the 36 come from? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20060801 04:04:40
Re: 6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)was gonna test it but...doh my calculator died #4 20060801 08:19:03
Re: 6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)I don't know where the 36 comes from, I just made it up out of nowhere! igloo myrtilles fourmis #5 20060801 10:55:01
Re: 6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)Holds pretty well till x is about 20, where it is 0.2 off. Then it gets exponetially worse. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20060801 11:14:25
Re: 6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)you know there are certain mathematical patterns to music, if thats true, there must be a way to randomly generate a song through math. Kind of creepy to think about. A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #7 20060801 11:52:16
Re: 6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)Nice equation, Ricky. mikau, what is creepy to you is magical to me! igloo myrtilles fourmis #8 20060801 12:02:22
Re: 6th root of 2 (whole tone scale)I still wonder how and why... X'(yXβ)=0
