    In addition, the number of MNs in an MAG network and crossing rate ([r.sub.c]) of fluid-flow model according to [17][18] is expressed as shown in equation (3).
    The size of the binding table is proportional to a number of MNs in the PMIPv6 domain, so that the processing cost in PMIPv6 can be expressed as shown in equation (4).
    In this analysis, we define the packet delivery cost ([]) as the sum of a transmission cost and a processing cost for the packet delivery between two MNs. In the conventional PMIPv6, the packet delivery cost is the sum of the processing cost ([C.sub.p(lma)]) of the LMA, and the transmission cost ([C.sub.t]) between a CN and an MN, which is expressed in equation (8).
    10 shows the location update cost, packet delivery cost and total cost as a function of the number of MNs. As the density of MN increases, the number of MNs increases in the domain.
    Figure 4 shows MnS solubility product curves for the liquidus temperature for each of several carbon equivalents.
    Audrey Poitras, president of the Metis Nation of Alberta, took exception to the MNS putting the situation in those basic terms.
    Poitras said the MNC had tried to help and had given the MNS other options.
    Chartrand also took exception to the comments from MNS delegates.
    The second resolution from the MNS also caused considerable debate on the assembly floor.
