[Joe Monzo]

The a&b in this term are actually numbers describing two equal-temperaments, and the ampersand symbol & always appears between the numbers in place of the word "and". See definition below.

I have a precise definition for this, but other people are more loose about it.

In my usage, a&b, for positive integers a and b and prime limit p, is the temperament defined by the wedgie for the patent vals for a and b in the prime limit p.
