The situation in the Solutrean is particularly problematic in that only three indirect chronometrically dated sites--including La Tete du Lion (Combier 1984: 597) and Le Placard (Clottes et al.
To further investigate the basis for dating the remainder, we looked at whether the stylistic assignment of sites was done with reference to chronometrically dated sites, or based solely on other stylistically dated sites.
We also use the aforemonetioned assumptions on small values and high order terms that reduce the chronometrically invariant differential operators to the regular differential operators: [sup.
The first (scalar) equation of the system of the conservation equations (39) means actually that the chronometrically invariant derivative of the vector [J.
imn] is a completely antisymmetric chronometrically invariant unit tensor.
It is also contained in the chronometrically invariant Christoffel symbols (6).
Quantities measured by the observer in an accompanying reference frame are chronometrically invariant quantities (see the previous paragraph for the details).
We then have a basis by which we introduce the chronometrically invariant spatially covariant d'Alembert operator [40] (7)
In order to make the results of General Relativity applicable to practice, we should consider tensor quantities and equations designed in chronometrically invariant form, because in such way they contain only chronometrically invariant quantities--physical quantities and geometrical properties of space, measurable in real experiment [31, 32].
As it easy to see, the Synge equation in its chronometrically invariant form (10) under the entanglement condition d[tao] = 0 becomes nonsense.
