The prime divisibility of N = pn, in which p is a prime factor of N, defines sets of S-trajectories which form different sequences of mass-values m of the discrete spectrum (6).
Definition 1 Assume that L in (4) has a discrete spectrum, say [{[[lambda].
If instead the matrix element associated with the discrete spectrum term is zero, the term itself affects absorption by the continuum, in that the latter vanishes at the position of the former.
Making the discrete spectrum depend on the second invariant of the rate of deformation tensor has since been considered a bad idea (24).
