Observability of intermediate routers is enabled by another widely used program, traceroute, which exploits the ICMP time exceeded message normally generated to signal a packet loss due to expiration of the TTL field.
Following Everett Rogers, [23] I argue that relative advantage, compatibility, and observability determine the rate and path of state electric power regulatory reforms, while complexity and trialability are constant across states.

Finally, the bivariate probit with partial observability model developed by Abowd and Farber (1982) has been used to infer demand parameters from observations on nursing home use (Sloan, Hoerger, and Picone 1996; Reschovsky 1996, 1998).
Observability is more than mere data availability; it depends on the cognitive work needed to extract meaning from the available data.
Similarly, consumers were unable to observe the benefits of others using GM food due the lack of direct benefits, which also lowered observability (Weick & Walchi, 2002).

He covers the stabilization of linear systems of finite dimension, the basic theory of elliptic operators, the stabilization of linear systems of infinite dimension: static feedback and dynamic feedback, the stabilization of linear systems with Riesz bases: dynamic feedback, output stabilization: the lack of observability and/or controllability conditions, the stabilization of a class of linear control systems generating C0-semigroups, and a computational algorhism for an infinite-dimensional Sylvester's equation.
