Sequence divergency of the cytadhesin gene of Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
However, its major role is to cancel the divergency for x [greater than or equal to] [pi]/2.
This result is due to the drastic decrease in the degree of divergency, for high momenta, of integrals describing the energy-momentum tensor of the condensates, in comparison with the case of the zero-point energy of a free field.
The number R which describes the scattered particle is given by the energy conservation condition R = (U + [[lambda].sub.1,2])/[[omega].sub.1,2] and can be, therefore, noninteger, leading to a divergency of the corresponding wave function at r [right arrow] [infinity].
so the divergency due to [[??].sub.r] ~ ( 1/[square root of [c.sup.2]- v[gamma]v)] is cancelled by the factor in front of this term.
It leads to the divergency of the orbit to some extent.
Further, the trace is, ontologically and epistemologically, inherently ambiguous; it pertains to the order of the enigma rather than phenomenon, and, thus, transpires as the anarchy or disturbance of the present order of being: "alterity occurs as a divergency and a past which no memory could resurrect as a present" (Levinas 1987, 68).
