In the recent paper [6] published in this journal, Shin-ya Koyama studied the existence of a subset E in [R.sub.[greater than or equal to]2] with finite logarithmic measure such that
Besides, we use S(r, f) to denote any quantity satisfying S(r, f) = o(T(r, f)) for all r outside a possible exceptional set E of finite logarithmic measure
The formula, moreover, involves the logarithm of probabilities, so that it is a natural generalization of the logarithmic measure spoken of above in connection with simple cases.
Then, exists a set E [subset] [R.sup.+] of finite logarithmic measure, i.e., [[integral].sub.E] dt/1 < +oo, such that for all z with [absolute value of (z)] = r [not member of] E and
Moreover, we denote by S(r, f) any real quantity satisfying S(r, f) = o(T(r, f)) as r [right arrow] [infinity] outside of a possible exceptional set of finite logarithmic measure.
The average frost fan is 70 to 80 decibels; because this is a logarithmic measure, 97 dB is far louder--comparable to an aircraft landing a mile away--four times as loud as 70 dB.
The elasticities were calculated using the model 1 or model 5 estimates, and they refer to percentage changes in the arithmetic measure for each variable, not the logarithmic measure. They appear in brackets in Table 2.
