Condition when normal message and telephone traffic is drastically reduced so messages connected with an actual or simulated emergency will not be delayed.

In a graphical user interface environment, to reduce a window to an icon that represents the application running in the window.

minimize

A feature of a graphics-based operating system that hides the application currently on screen. To show the app is still open, an icon representing the program is placed on the Taskbar in Windows or the Dock in the Mac. Clicking the Taskbar or Dock icon restores the application to its previous size and location on screen. Contrast with maximize. See Win Minimize windows.


Minimize Buttons
The underscore button (_) is the minimize button in Windows and Mac. Clicking it sends the application to the sidelines.

In [5, 35], an efficient scheme for computing a minimizer of the problem (1.
This minimizer u can be characterized using the subdifferential of [PHI] it has to satisfy
The first order optimality condition for a minimizer u is given by
Multiplying by [lambda] and adding u on both sides yields a fixed point relation which has to be satisfied for a minimizer u and for all [lambda] [member of] R
Therefore, a desirable minimizer u has the characteristics of the function with Amplitude 1.
This change designates the role of the surface energy at the minimizer u as a "counter" because [1/2][[integral].
In Section 5 we use the surrogate functional approach for the minimization of the transformed functional, and in Section 6 we introduce the TIGRA method for the reconstruction of a global minimizer.

Although it seems at a first glance that Tikhonov regularization works under less restrictive conditions on the operator than most of the iterative methods, it still has the main drawback that a minimizer of the Tikhonov functional has to be computed, which requires an appropriate optimization method.
