more to signature transformations

This is actually just an addendum to the post with abstract and publication information for Jay Hook's article on signature transformations. I have finally acquired a copy of Music and Mathematics and want to explain "Neumeyer (forthcoming)" in footnote 1 (159). That was a book project that ultimately ran afoul of reviewers with strongly opposed views (that is, opposed to one another). The nub of chapter 1 is in the MTS article, chapters 2 & 3 will become articles when I get around to it, and chapter 4 has by now migrated in great part to this blog. Jay was generous in writing a section for chapter 4 at my request; I'm glad that the work sparked some serious thought and has not only resulted in a substantial publication for him but also in a construct with real potential for music analysis.
