:Intervals characterizing musical notes, although clearly audible to the musician, are not easy to display graphically. This is the reason why several, often contradictory, methods explaining the divisions in the octave through arithmetic tables have been used in China, in the Middle East and in Europe. These are presented here in the form of graphic tables and compared with the Indian system, which is based on expression rather than on graphic representation. To this end, the author has used contributions made by musicians from all corners of India. The resulting tables display, side by side, the principal intervals used or that are likely to be used in the various known systems. This not only represents a valuable source of information on display, side by side, the principal intervals used or that are likely to be used in the various known systems. This not only represents a valuable source of information on comparative musicology, but is also useful for the synchronization of experimental instruments and the potential development of each system.
