The distribution function (14) for the inter-arrival of successive impulses F(t) is, by definition, equal to the probability that the inter-arrival time of these impulses will be shorter than the time T.
On the other hand, although a dynamical conductivity formula for superconducting materials could be obtained from Eliashberg theory [13] where the electron-phonon interaction is described by the spectral function, the result did not contain the distribution function for phonons, so the phonon emissions and absorptions as well as photon absorptions and emissions in all electron transition processes could not be presented in an organized manner.

More exactly, it is expressed as an integrated bivariate probability distribution function of cost and schedule:
Thus, income inequality would be underestimated if we apply it for the analysis of the residential income gap in China for the inequality is neglected.)

Closure relations problem of hydrodynamical models in semiconductors is considered by expressing third- and fourth-order closure relations for the moments of the distribution function in terms of second-order Lagrange multipliers using a generalized Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution function within information theory.
Among the topics are spatially resolved X-ray absorption spectroscopy, the pair distribution function analysis of high-energy X-ray scattering data, infrared spectroscopy on powder catalysts, applying ambient-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy for the in-situ investigation of heterogeneous catalytic reaction, combining infrared spectroscopy with X-ray techniques for interrogating heterogeneous catalysts, and catalyst imaging using synchrotron-based multi-technique approaches.
In almost all related studies in the literature, two-parameter Weibull distribution function was used for the characterization of strength distribution of feldspathic body porcelain, and the effect of surface treatment on the Weibull parameters was reported.
