Flat rhythms have the property that each distance between onsets is unique. This is also demonstrated by a Golomb Ruler, and is used in the placement of radio-telescopes, where interference created by un-evenly space units is used to boost signal.

Deep rhythms are created by adding an onset at equally spaced intervals, spiraling around until all pulses are filled.

The hop and jump algorithm produces something called rhythmic oddity, where no onset pairs divide the rhythmic cycle perfectly in half, or in segments of equal duration.
