A better understanding about the mechanisms of action and dose-response patterns of EDCs has indicated that EDCs can act at low doses, and in many cases a nonmonotonic dose-response association has been demonstrated.
The nonmonotonic character might result from intricate real-space effects, for example, a modification of the Co/Fe local-moment landscape, which is beyond the VCA method that was employed in theory.
Despite higher supercooled liquid water contents with higher dust concentrations, high dust concentrations produced numerous small droplets which suppressed riming and led to a reduction in precipitation, a nonmonotonic response when dust is increased 10 times.
Several beam-energy dependent observables such as the particle ratios [8, 9], the flow [10, 11], and the HBT parameters [12, 13] show a nonmonotonic behavior, for which the interpretation still remains unclear.
More interesting is the nonmonotonic dependence of [f.sub.v] on exit velocity and thus on temperature at fixed height above the burner, initially increasing with exit velocity but decreasing at higher velocities.
Our previous results have shown that application of a complex acoustically enriched environment (AEE) during the period of development nonselectively and permanently improves the representations of tonal frequency and intensity in IC and AC neurons by increasing their sensitivity and frequency selectivity and by lowering the number of nonmonotonic rate-intensity functions [6, 16].
It indicates the nonmonotonic variation of CNMCC in the reservoir scale.
In light of the empirical researcher's difficulty in testing the nonmonotonic relationship between search costs and price dispersion, rivals provide a useful benchmark because their existence allows us to compare pricing behavior when all consumers search costlessly with pricing behavior when consumers are heterogeneous in their search costs.
Secondly, the conventional definition about SR phenomenon is the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) versus the noise intensity exhibits a peak [17, 18], whereas the generalized SR [19] implies the nonmonotonic behaviors of a certain function of the output signal (such as the first and second moments, the autocorrelation function) on the system parameters.
