    Abstract:
    This paper reports on the task of developing concepts for a computational analysis of the transmission of mensural music based on concepts of phylogenetic analysis. Since the analysis of transmission aims for the reconstruction of relations between sources, it focuses on the differences of rather similar items. Therefore, it is necessary to find substitution models which are optimized for distinguishing fine levels of differences and to deal with the structural ambiguities and visual variance of mensural notation.
