Adda

(äd`dä), river, 194 mi (312 km) long, rising in the Rhaetian Alps, N Italy, and flowing SW through Lake Como, then S into the Po River near Cremona. Its upper course furnishes much electric power; the lower river irrigates the Lombard plain. Many battles have been fought along its course, notably the Battle of LodiLodi
, city (1991 pop. 42,250), Lombardy, N Italy, on the Adda River, near Milan. It is an important dairy and light industrial center. The city is located near the site of ancient Laus Pompeia, which was destroyed by Milan in A.D. 1111.

Adda

 

a river in northern Italy, a left-bank tributary of the Po River. It is 313 km long and its drainage area is 8,000 sq km. Its source is Lake Cancano in the Rhaetian Alps. The upper part of the Adda flows through the Valtellina Valley, which is a glacial trough valley; it crosses Lake Como, then the foothills of the Lombardy pre-Alps, and finally flows through the Lombardy plain. The Adda is in high water in spring, summer, and fall. The average flowrate is about 250 cubic meters a second. Hydroelectric power plants are in operation on the river. Canals take off from the lower reaches of the Adda, including the 56–kilometer Martesana Canal to Milan.

Adda was the site of a battle on April 15–17 (26–28) during Suvorov’s Italian campaign of 1799, which was part of the war of the second coalition (England, Austria, Russia, and other countries) against France. The Russian and Austrian troops, under the command of Field Marshal A. V. Suvorov (about 43,000 men) fought against the French troops, which were commanded first by General Scherer and later by General J. V. Moreau (about 28,000 men). Suvorov took advantage of the fact that the French front was overextended and diverted the attention of the French troops with the actions of the corps of General P.I. Bagration, who occupied the city of Lecco on April 15 on the right flank; after that the allies forced the Adda on April 16 in the center of the French positions and inflicted a severe defeat on the enemy in the two-day battle. The French army had 2,500 men killed or wounded and 5,000 taken prisoner, and the allies lost about 2,500 men. The victory on the Adda prepared the later successes of the allied troops in Italy.

Within the sample the mean ADD1 is .52 in markets that experienced BCB entry in contrast to .78 where no BCB entry occured.
The coefficient on ADD1 suggests that the most important determinant of BCB entry is concentration in the deposit market.
Since add1 accepts only one kind of input, an alternative type scheme is
Both (1) and (2) are valid type schemes for add1. We use the first type scheme for add1 because the second causes reverse flow, a phenomenon discussed in Section 5.5.1.
For example, the expression (ap add1 #t) instantiates the absent variable 3 in the type of add1 as (at least) true+ [union] ??.
The second use of inc requires a run-time check at add1. Hence a let-bound procedure must include the union of all run-time checks required by its uses.
the application of inc to #t requires a run-time check at add1 within inc.
But with the application (ap inc #t) as above, two run-time checks are required: one at add1 and one at sub1.
Now x has type [num.sup.+] [Union] [Alpha.sub.5] A run-time check is still required at add1, but no spurious run-time check is inserted at sub1.
As before, a primitive such as add1 that has type scheme
primitive add1 receives an ordinary run-time check because [psi] includes {??
The inclusion of false in the type of y forces a run-time check at the application (add1 y), despite the fact that y is never bound to #f.
