  Octave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music, an octave (sometimes abbreviated 8ve or 8va) is the interval between one musical note and another with half or double the frequency.
Octave equivalency is a part of most musics, but is far from universal in "primitive" and early music (e.g., Nettl, 1956; Sachs and Kunst, 1962).
Also monkeys experience octave equivalency, and its biological basis apparently is an octave mapping of neurons in the auditory thalamus of the mammalian brain [1].

 GNU Octave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Octave's `andand' and `' logical operators are evaluated in a short-circuit fashion (like the corresponding operators in the C language) and work differently than the element by element operators `and' and `'.
Octave has a real mechanism for handling functions that take an unspecified number of arguments, so it is no longer necessary to place an upper bound on the number of optional arguments that a function can accept.
The differences between Octave and MATLAB are usually because the authors of Octave decided on a better and subjective implementation than the way MATLAB does it, and so introduced "user preference variables" so as to allow the user to customize Octave's behavior to be either MATLAB-compatible or to use Octave's new features.

 Octave - LoveToKnow 1911
The octave thus always falls on the same day of the week as the festival, and any event occurring during the period is said to be "in the octave." In music, an octave is the eighth full tone above or below any given note.
The "law of octaves" was a term applied in 1865 to a relationship among the chemical elements enunciated by J. Newlands.
The word octave is also often used to describe the eight opening lines of a sonnet, in which the rhyme-arrangement is abbaabba, or some modification of this, but properly always on two rhymes only.

 Octave stretch
Stumpf (1890a) appears to have been the first to report on the observation that when the frequency of a tone is adjusted such that the auditory sense of octave equivalence is satisfied in comparison with a fixed preceding tone, the frequency ratio of the tones tends to be slightly greater than 2:1.
It may thus be concluded that the gross tendency for octave stretch is superimposed by more effects, in particular, by the oscillating deviations of the ''frequency-to-pitch'' characteristic of an ear that can be indirectly deduced from measurements of binaural diplacusis (van den Brink 1977a, [100]).
The explanation of octave stretch virtually is included in the explanation of octave equivalence (see also topic affinity of tones).

 Octave equivalence
Octave equivalence obviously is of little or no help to the auditory system when a melody is split into different octaves.
Yet another limitation in octave equivalence was demonstrated by Thurlow and Erchul (1977a), who investigated the ability of listeners to recognize multiple octaves, i.e., tones in larger pitch distances.
The explanation of octave equivalence, based on this concept, is given in the topic affinity of tones.

An octave is a frequency ratio of 2:1.
Octaves are perceived as equal pitch intervals, even though the true bandwidth in Hertz varies with the frequency level of the octave.
Even though an octave is strictly speaking a subjective judgment, it is so closely equal to frequency doubling (no matter where one is in frequency) that it has been defined as an objective measure.

 Octave marks   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Octave statements are used to mark notes that are to be played one or more octaves higher or lower than written.
If the octave shifting applies to more than a single chord, there should also be a duration specified, reaching to include the last affected note.
Note that specifying the exact beat of a chord indicates the horizontal center of the chord, so if you want the dashed line to reach a bit past the note, it will be necessary to specify a duration slightly beyond the point of the last chord to be included.
