Let (X, f) be a rotational system such that X is an infinite, proper subset of T.
(6) In a bitopological space (X, [[tau].sub.1], [[tau].sub.2]), if X cannot be expressed as the union of two nonempty sets A and B with A [intersection] B = [phi] such that A is [[tau].sub.1]-[delta] semiopen and B is [[tau].sub.2]-[delta] semiopen, then X does not contain any nonempty proper subset which is both [[tau].sub.1]-[delta] semiopen and [[tau].sub.2]-[delta] semiclosed.
In , Schirmer observed that for a given self map f : [S.sup.n] [right arrow] [S.sup.n] of an n-sphere, n [greater than or equal to] 2, any closed nonempty proper subset A of [S.sup.n] can be realized as the fixed point set of a map g [member of] [f] with Fix(g) = A.
Suppose that we have at most six distinct rational multiples of [pi] lying strictly between 0 and [pi]/2, for which some rational linear combination of their cosines is zero but no proper subset has this property, then the appropriate linear combination is propositional to one of the following:
Let (X,[tau]) and (X,[[tau].sub.[alpha]]) are spaces, then (X,[tau])is [alpha]-[tau]-disconnected if and only if there exists non-empty proper subset of X which is both [alpha]-open and [alpha]-closed.
3) A(I) contains a proper subset which is a BCI/BCK-algebra.
Where modern public finance generally locates its material as a proper subset of economic theory, Ryu's text locates public finance as a multi-disciplinary field of study, centered on economics to be sure, but touching as well, and significantly so, on politics, public administration, and law.
A signed building block of T is a non-empty proper subset B of V which is negative convex and whose complement V\B is positive convex.
As a classical result in topology, a topological space (X, T) is connected if and only if (X, T) has no nonempty clopen (i.e., both open and closed) proper subset. How can we characterize the connectivity of covering approximation spaces?
If B is a distribution consistent set, and no proper subset of B is a distribution consistent set, then B is called a distribution consistent reduction of [J.sup.[greater than or equal to]].
A Boolean-near-ring (B, [disjunction], [and]) is said to be Samarandache-Boolean-near-ring whose proper subset A is a Boolean-ring with respect to same induced operation of B.
The extracted requirements wouldn't modify any recognition or measurement principles, so the guidance for micro-sized entities will be a proper subset of the IFRS for SMEs rather than a separate standard.
