CUBIC quickly increases congestion window and reduces burst packet losses by adjusting congestion window based on cubic function.
Figure 1 illustrates the three most general forms a cubic function may assume.
By contrast, a cubic function does not have the steady growth of a quadratic.
Such a chain may be compared with the celebrated Fermi-Pasta-Ulam (FPU) chains as a paradigm of the ILMs where the restoring force is given by a cubic function of displacement called the FPU-[beta] model [15].
CUBIC replace the concave and convex windows growth function of BIC by Cubic function as shown in Figure 2.
The relationship between cotton yield (kg/ha) and ammonium sulfate was best described by a cubic function at concentrations of 750, 1,125 and 1,500 kg/ha of calcium sulfate; on the other hand, a linear function was best adjusted in the absence of calcium sulfate.
The corresponding family of cubics thus contains no degenerate curves for which y is a quadratic or cubic function of x (or vice versa) since assuming otherwise leads to the condition that [a.
Moreover, the cubic function could be expected to exhibit a positive, negative, positive sign pattern as the profits for both small and large firms are higher than those of medium sized firms.
A cubic function that is continuous, and has a continuous first and second derivative is employed to represent the angular position of the motor the derivative of which gives the angular velocity.
