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.
This case does not satisfy Jay Rahn's criterion of producing a complete cycle of interval classes, but it does generate all the intervals by means of bisection. In fact, if it is universal bisection that we are after, it can be had for any odd cardinality, if we are willing to sacrifice touching all interval classes in a single cycle and partitioning the intervals into two precise hemispheres.

The optimization problem (OP) is solved effectively by using the bisection method.
The feedback second harmonic injection methods for simultaneous reduction of IMD3 and IMD5 in bisection laser diode have been studied [9], and a novel distortion reduction scheme for gain lever laser diodes has been presented [10, 11].
Spatial neglect was assessed using a standard clinical battery similar to other research in our group [15,35] and diagnosed when patients demonstrated abnormal performance in the following tests: line bisection (cutoff: rightward deviation >11%) [36] and target cancellation test (cutoff: left-right omissions >4 out of 15 omissions) [37].

A simple and stable bisection procedure acceleration scheme was used to solve the nonlinear equation (8).
For technical reasons, the proof in [15] relied on the use of newest vertex bisection and is restricted to the lowest-order case p = 0 since it uses the norm localization techniques from [11, 12].
Andersen said the countrywide increase of bird strikes in the past two months is due to Kenya's unique bisection by the Equator and its extension from the Indian Ocean sea level to the second-highest mountain in Africa - Mt Kenya.
