handicap

An opus' handicap, or just cap, is its projected yield, as measured in ¢ents (compounded to dollars). It is computed from the product of the actual fret (plus tax) multiplied by the maximum number of TOS semitones* (cap = fret × 2,600), thereby completing the ¢ent formula.One-hundred (100) ¢ents each.

This figure constitutes the extrema of the opus it represents (akin to how much twistor space it occupies). The cap is a spread (security estimate) that places a quote on the calculation derived from the above equation. Bounded extrema (minima/maxima) would constitute a potential loss for the juker/gain for the house, which can be rectified with improvisation. [Handicap commutations (≡) are fonts.] (see also coupon) Complexity: E

Note (+): Losses here are absorbed by the jukebox; jukers get no refund. But, improvisation (ie. fibor-bundling) can keep the game afloat.
