... equivalent to the other. Further examination of the ic-matrices in Figure 1 reveals important differences in the intervallic content of these pcsets, specifically as re- gards the cycles on which their intervals lie. For example, each member of ic4 in {0,1,2,4,7,8} exists between adjacencies in the...
