Abstract

Although we agree in general with the description of the data given in the paper by Smoorenburg produced by cancellation-method, there are still some differences in the interpretation we would like to point out. Smoorenburg’s descriptive hypothesis seems to be too simple for the relatively complicated frequency-place dependence of the system, including large non-linearity.
