The linear dependence in our results is due to the circumstance that the Stefan-Boltzmann law holds for a full range of temperatures, but for narrow temperature ranges it reduces well to a linear dependence.
The formalization is carried out on the basis of strategic models in terms of thickness, bearing in mind linear dependence of mass from thickness and application of correction coefficients.
The linear dependence of this model has been presented in the following Figure 1.
The previous figure brings us proof that the change of angle has non linear dependence on displacement, and it can be considered straightforward in the investigation of VBHF.
Linear dependence often arises when scales and their constituent items are included in a data set; therefore, either the scales or the items should be excluded (with a preference for normally distributed variables, we recommend retaining the scales, particularly when the items are binomial).
In this context, and based on the work of Geweke (1982) and Chong and Calderon (2000), we take a more complete approach than unidirectional Granger causality tests by measuring the degree of linear dependence and feedback between two panel series x (rent seeking) and y (democracy).
As a consequence we will plot storage data vs [nu], not 1/[lambda], to obtain a linear dependence.
This procedure removes any linear dependence and any nonzero mean that could be present in the raw data.
Ruud sums up these chapters like this: "Starting with the concepts of (1) a vector space, (2) linear dependence, (3) an inner product, length of a vector, and orthogonality, we have developed the idea of a projection as the solution to a minimum-distance problem" (p.
When acid denatured CroF58W is mixed with neutral buffer containing SlyD, the rate enhancement of CroF58W fluorescence change shows a linear dependence on SlyD concentration in the refolding buffer.
