References in classic literature ?
Our conception of a compound animal, where in some respects the individuality of each is not completed, may be aided, by reflectin on the production of two distinct creatures by bisecting single one with a knife, or where Nature herself perform the task of bisection. We may consider the polypi in zoophyte, or the buds in a tree, as cases where the divisio of the individual has not been completely effected.
When two bisections are different in one or two nodes, they are referred to as neighbors.
Terrill is not a polemicist but a methodical analyst, first bisecting, then dissecting the bisections into two, three, four more parts, each time stepping out the why and when of policy announcements before itemising ensuing procedures and, then, the consequences.
Bisections over a collection of elements could result in a nonconforming triangulation.
For antenna testing, the RFX scanner can show far-field patterns, bisections, Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) and Total Radiated Power (TRP).
Compositions circle back on themselves, forms wobbled, the corners of squares puckered, bisections meandered ever so slightly like rivers through unsteady topography.
Individual bisections were transformed into constant errors with the following equation:
Subjects performed line bisections in the following order: (1) unpatched, (2) wearing a right eye patch, and (3) wearing a left eye patch.
Al's solo chapters thus metaphorize those descriptions, usually bisections, of an African American writing tradition along a "political" line that often serves to delineate gender and/or sexual orientation.
We solve this equation numerically by the method of bisections, for x = 5(0.5) 100 and d = 0, c = 2; d = 0, c = 5; and d = 1(1) 10, c = 1, using rational approximations of Cody [1969] to evaluate the complementary error function.
For the 30 runs this was a total of 1.2 x [10.sup.10] bisections and reconnections.
Counting the subroutine calls reveals that XMR-CPL does more bisections (for checking the couplings) and more RQI steps (to compute the second vector), but these operations are on size-n matrices, whereas the matrices in XMR-[T.sub.GK] all have size 2n.
