Further, due to the nonequivalence of cone metric spaces with Banach algebra and (general) metric spaces, the conclusions in this paper are focused on fixed point theorems in cone metric spaces over Banach algebras instead of theorems only in usual metric spaces or cone metric spaces (see [1-4, 6-8, 10-12, 14-17, 21, 22]), which is more meaningful.
This point is illustrated in Figure 5 and shows the nonequivalence of these spatial differential operators for the conditions considered here.
In the third phase, another statistical procedure was carried out to adjust for the initial nonequivalence of the treatment and control groups.
Notice the strong variation of such a ratio for [gamma] = 1 and for [gamma] = 0.5 in the overall interval z/[z.sub.R], pointing out a full nonequivalence between both Gouy phases.
One of these could be described as flexible or diffuse reciprocity, which essentially derives from the concepts of noncontingency and nonequivalence. It comes down to "first give, and then receive," an unconditioned strategy in which the dominant side yields first to place the other side at ease and yield in return.

Among the studies on labor market outcomes of GED credential recipients, the most influential was the 1993 study by Cameron and Heckman, which was based on the NLSY79 data and argued that GED credential recipients are "nonequivalence of high school equivalents," and that they are "indistinguishable in many relevant labor market dimensions" from uncredentialed high school dropouts.
By the information it comprises, this analysis allows making a comparison between the interests of various national organisms in order to standardize some aspects of the field and esablishing the degree of alignment to the international standards by enhancing the identity, the equivalence or the nonequivalence of a country's standards towards the international or European normative documents.
A previous study reported that their functional nonequivalence was mediated to genomic imprinting, an epigenetic mechanism that gives rise to differential expression of paternally and maternally inherited alleles of certain genes (Young et al., 2003).
