Auditory Dissonance: Kameoka & Kuriyagawa


I am writing an undergraduate research paper on auditory dissonance, using
Kameoka and Kuriyagawa's 1969 papers on Consonance Theory: Part I and II as
a starting point.  I have been trying to replicate their calculated results
using the formulae they provide, but have had only limited success.  In
particular, I can duplicate the results of their calculations for tones
comprised of harmonics with constant amplitudes, but when I varied the
sound pressure levels of the partials, there were large descrepicies
between my results and K&K's.

If anyone else has attempted to repeat Kameoka and Kuriyagawa's
calculations in their 1969 papers, I would greatly appreciate information
from them.

Also, I would appreciate a response from anyone who has further insight or
interest in the subject of auditory dissonance, and who can point me to
further information.

Below my signature is a list of the papers I am currently reading under the
direction of my professor, Dr. David Huron, at the University of Waterloo.

Thank you for your time.
