Alright, @Ash9903b4 , we've got this from here.
I think I’ll have to postpone this for real life reasons as well, but I might work on it independently a little and post my findings in a few weeks.

Re: Magrathean diacritics

Thanks @Ash9903b4 and @cmloegcmluin. Unfortunately, a good EDO doesn't necessarily mean a good EDA. The two happen to be almost indistinguishable in the case of 8539edo and 809-EDA. But that is not the case for 16808edo and 1592-EDA. 1592-EDA is more like 16804edo and is nothing special. I dusted o...

Re: Magrathean diacritics

I've done a (rather naïve) search for good low-error edos around 10000, and they seem to match up with the ones listed on the Riemann zeta article on the wiki: 3395, 6079, 7033, 8269 , 8539 , 11664 , 12770, 13112, 14348 , 15230, 16808 , 19461, 20203 , 27730, 28472, 28742, 30631, 33315, 34691, 36269 ...

@Dave Keenan It looks like a lot of posts were deleted here?

Re: Magrathean diacritics

I think the question of when to switch over into subtracting from the 5-schisma can be reduced to a sort of coin-counting problem. The tina accents are built from elements that stand for a half tina, 1, 2 and 3 tinas, and the 5-schisma, so the question is: Given denominations of 0.5t, 1t, 2t, 3t and...

I'm fairly sure this is an exhaustive list of all 19-limit commas smaller than the 5-schisma with a 3-exponent between -12 and 12, and with a popularity rank below 72. 0 tinas tinas comma monzo interval cents limit popularity 0.00 1n [ 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 > 1 0.000000 1 0 0.05 11:228095n [ 8 4 -1 -4 1 0...

Re: Magrathean diacritics

I started by generating a list of intervals with odd limit 720720 or less. This is admittedly suboptimal, because there are intervals with odd limits in the millions that meet those criteria, for example, the 1890625-schismina that I had listed previously, but I didn't save the original script and d...

Re: Magrathean diacritics

Ah. OK. What about the subtle difference between 8539edo and 809eda? Does that change which intervals are between the cracks? I don't think so, unless the interval is incredibly close to a quarter tina (like the 121:1225n), but I'd have to check. How do you define a canonical form for edas? Do you ...

Re: Magrathean diacritics

Wow! Thanks for those, Ash. Are they all based on a single consistent mapping from primes to half-tinas? If so, can you give the number of half-tinas for each prime. I know 809-EDA is highly consistent, but I have no idea about 1618-EDA. The dots for half tinas were an expedient afterthought when D...
