    • commensurable Having a common measure; reducible to a common measure. Thus, a yard and a foot are commensurable, as both may be measured by inches. Commensurable numbers are those which may be measured or divided by other numbers without a remainder, as 12 and 18, which may be measured by 6 and 3. See incommensurable.

Mutual Composite Fermion and composite Boson approaches to balanced and imbalanced bilayer quantum Hall system: an electronic analogy of the Helium 4 system
The key result achieved in this paper is that there are two consecutive transitions at zero temperature driven by the coverage : a Commensurate-Charge Density Wave (CDW) at half filling to a narrow window of supersolid, then to an Incommensurate-CDW.
Mutual Composite Fermion and composite Boson approaches to balanced and imbalanced bilayer quantum Hall system: an electronic analogy of the Helium 4 system
