A very small unit of interval measurement for Turkish music, invented by M. Ekrem Karadeniz in 1965.
A türk-sent divides the 53-edo comma into 200 logarithmically equal parts. It therefore divides the octave into 53 * 200 = 10,600 equal parts.
The türk-sent is therefore calculated as the 10600th root of 2, or 2(1/10600), with a ratio of approximately 1:1.000065393. It is an irrational number.
A türk-sent is
The formula for calculating the türk-sent-value of any ratio r is: türk-sents = log10(r) * [ ( 53 * 200 ) / log10(2) ] or türk-sents = log2(r) * ( 53 * 200 )
A türk-sent represents one degree of 10600-edo tuning.
The 12-edo semitone is ~883.3333333 (exactly 883 1/3 ) türk-sents.
