1.A process of electric welding in which heat is developed by a large current passing through the metal.

We therefore consider the Thomson process. When a light wave having the average density of energy q encounters a free electron, the flow of the wave energy [sigma]cq is stopped in the electron's "square" [sigma] = 6.65 x [10.sup.-25] [cm.sup.2] (the square of Thomson dispersion).
On the other hand, according to our theory, developed in Section 3, the total force [[PHI].sup.1] acting on an electron and the energy flow W expended on it via the Thomson process should be
Therefore the total energy flow W = [W.sub.(0)] + + [[??].sup.2]/[[bar.v].sup.2] [W.sub.(0)] = [W.sub.(0)] + [??]/[bar.v] [W.sub.(0)] and force [[PHI].sup.1] = [[PHI].sup.1.sub.(0)] + [[??].sup.2]/[[bar.v].sup.2] [[PHI].sup.1.sub.(0)] acting on an electron orthogonally to the wave plane in the Thomson process should be
The oscillation causes a local perturbation of the non-holonomic background space of the Universe, so the background non-holonomic field produces an additional energy flow and force in the Thomson process in order to compensate for the local perturbation in itself.
A sub-team, which included Dashe & Thomson process consultants, reviewed a number of possible solutions before selecting a combination of software technologies that satisfied the essential tool requirements:
In the challenging and sometimes charged atmosphere of defining boundaries, inputs, and outputs, the position of the Dashe & Thomson process consultants as neutral agents was important.
