Firstly the element in the 3D AET is expressed in three dimensions different from the one of 2D AET, where the most different point between 2D AET and 3D AET is the ray-trace technique in the algorism. In the developed ray-trace technique, the waves in 3D AET are expressed by Eqs.
Three central chapters are: (2) ~The rise of the vernacular motet'; (3) ~Johannes de Grocheio, the litterati, and verbal subtilitas in the Ars Antiqua motet'; and (4) ~Ars Nova and algorism.
