Re: HC selectivity ... was Re: Physiological models of cochlea activity - alternatives to the travelling wave

```Bob and Matt -

The difference between your two values for the cut off frequency
appears to be the 2pi factor.  From
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RC_circuit,
fc = 1/(2piRC)  Hz

Thus wc = 25000 rad/s (not 25 kHz, as Matt suggested!)
Bob's calculation of fc = ~4kHz is correct.
