Carnatic Music Theory

I found this nice collection of carnatic music theory.

I need to read these articles thoroughly and these will be the baseline of anything I present in the future regarding carnatic music theory.

This seems to be from a guy from cs Wisconsin, written around 15 years ago.

Interestingly, a lot of problems I (and my friends) have considered earlier have been attacked by this person.

For eg. compare this, which is my attempt to attack the sruti/graha bedham problem, and this., which is his attempt. At first glance, one may find the similarities quite surprising (he has also used the equivalence class approach). More thought leads me to the following conclusion: it is the simplicity of the subject matter that is cause for the similarity.

After my brief stint with research over the past 2-3 years I will make this half-baked statement, which I hope to re-vesit in detail in the future : It is meaningless in the truest sense of the word to "claim ownership of a general idea" -- if something seems "novel", you are just not searching enough.
