ZERO_LENGTH is defined as a dummy variable capturing a zero length of the relationship with the potential lender.
upsilon]7] can be interpreted as the zero length loss coefficient of the fitting, since a curve plotted through the data points is a straight-line if the loss coefficient is a constant.
When the standard is a tool of zero length; the tool is in the spindle; and the X, Y, and Z axes are at their machine zero position, the machine zero point is the point in space occupied by the tool reference point, since this is the tip of the zero length standard.
This was reduced to 376 trees by filtering and finally 156 trees after manual removal of topologies with zero length internal branches (referred to subsequently as the 'manual tree set').
Experiments with the zero length dies indicated no signs of pressure oscillations, which is the first supporting fact that the pressure oscillations are initiated along the wall of the capillary.
We study a binary length function that assigns zero length to large capacity arcs and unit length to small capacity arcs.
Choose one of the two daughters at random to undergo the event after that time interval, forming a total of three evolving species with branches of zero length leading from the two newest daughters or a single extant taxon continuing to evolve and a single extinct species.
