Similarly, in Table II, there are relative changes of parameters of the considered indices when SE is realized in the polar coordinate system. The mentioned changes of the parameters of the considered indices characterizing properties of PSSE are calculated using formula: [DELTA][p.sub.X] = 100([p.sub.X,S] - [p.sub.X,S-])/ [p.sub.X,S-], where [p.sub.X,S], [p.sub.X,S-] are parameters of index X, when SE is performed for PS with or without PhS, respectively.
