 Harmonic Resonance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Harmonic resonance is shown to exhibit these same properties not as specialized circuits to account for those properties individually, but as natural properties of the resonance itself.
B: This chemical harmonic resonance has been identified as the mechanism behind the formation of patterns in animal skins, as well as for the periodicity in the vertibrae of vertibrates, the bilateral symmetry of the body plan, as well as the periodicity of the bones in the limbs and fingers.
The harmonic resonance theory offers a possible explanation for this, for if the physical stimulus, for example vibration frequency in sound, is encoded by a harmonic resonance code, every equal increment of the code would represent a jump to a higher harmonic, corresponding to a doubling of the frequency at the sensory level.

 Harmonic series (music)
Put another way: since the harmonic series is an arithmetic series (1f, 2f, 3f, 4f...), and the octave, or octave series, is a geometric series (f, 2×f, 4×f, 8×f...), this causes the overtone series to divide the octave into increasingly smaller parts as it ascends.
Some harmonics correspond very nearly to named pitches of the equal tempered scale; others, for example the 7th harmonic, are significantly off from the equal tempered tones.

 harmonic. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
At most the first 16 tones in such a series can be heard by the human ear; the character or timbre of a fundamental tone is determined by the number of its subsidiary tones heard and their relative intensity.
The subsidiary tones have been loosely called harmonics (as a noun), but they are properly called partials, the fundamental tone being the first partial.
Similarly harmonics are produced separately in an air column by overblowing or in brass wind instruments by the use of valves.

 Paul Erlich's older ideas on Harmonic Entropy
The harmonic entropy is based on the concept that the critical band represents a certain degree of uncertainty in the perception of pitch, and for any "true" interval, the auditory system will perceive a range of intervals spanning a number of simple-integer ratios.
Note that harmonic partials within the heard tones are irrelevant because the cycles here need not be sinusoidal for the counting to occur.
This means that harmonically, the brain interprets the neutral third with a variety of ratios, none of which is predominant enough to allow the brain to make a decision.

I presume you're referring to the fact that when you quantize the harmonic oscillator, the spectrum of the Hamiltonian is discrete.

 BAIN: The Harmonic Series (Overtone Series)
For example, the series of frequencies 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, etc., given in Hertz (Hz.), is a harmonic series; so is the series 500, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, etc. Notice that the difference between adjacent members of both series is constant, that is to say, the harmonics are equally-spaced.
As one ascends the series, the amplitude, or loudness of each harmonic tends to diminish, so the higher modes produce harmonics that are usually too soft for us to hear.
So that rather than perceiving the many individual harmonics of a musical tone, we ordinarily perceive an identifiable tone color, or timbre, whose pitch is associated with the fundamental of the harmonic series being experienced.
