Through numerical calculation, we find that black holes have only one phase transition point when Q [subset] (0,0.4472).
In analyzing interview data, we identified eight types of technology transition points. A better understanding of the types of technology transitions--and the priorities likely to accompany them-will further clarify the contribution and thus the strategic impact and organizational standing of the CTO.
For the period from the maximum to the transition point, the sine curve used is sometimes treated as a the second quadrant of the same sine curve used for the period up to the maximum (Parton and Logan 1981; Goudriaan and van Laar 1994), although others have preferred a separate sine curve with a different phase length for this section (Cesaraccio et al.
[A.sub.i]).sup.Z], then t is a transition point [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] [B.sub.j], where [B.sub.j] [member of])1 ...
In parallel, for each neuron [n.sup.*.sub.j] these statistics are kept: with which value of the key parameter p (transition point) records have got to neuron [n.sup.*.sub.j] and how many times.
The result means that it is an effective way to use the CPE and CS-ACR particles together for shifting ductile-brittle transition point of the blends to a lower temperature.
At the glass transition point, roughly half of the molecules are in the solid state, and crystalline clusters make a fractal pattern.
Washington, Apr 2 (ANI): A new study from University of Cambridge has provided new evidence that the human brain lives "on the edge of chaos", at a critical transition point between randomness and order.
Key characteristics are a high melting point, stiffness over a wide temperature range and high glass transition point. These translate into warp-free electronics connectors and heat-resistant housings and modules for LEDs, and in the automotive industry DSM says the material will be able to support new developments in under-bonnet applications for electrical systems, air/fuel and powertrain components.
They provide traffic engineering and remote access capabilities to enable monitoring and troubleshooting at the official transition point to the customer's network.
