If we find that a given element occurs in the exact same environment (or context) as another element (either in the same language or crosslinguistically) then they share the same primitive function.
These notions can be mapped as primitive functions in a semantic map model.
Keywords Cubic sum, Smarandache primitive function, equation, solutions.
The Smarandache primitive function [S.sub.p](n) is defined as the smallest positive integer such that [S.sub.p](n)!
But it seems that no one knows the relationship between the cubic sum of natural numbers and the Smarandache primitive function. In this paper, we use the elementary methods to study the solvability of the equation
Let p be a prime, n be any positive integer, [S.sub.p](n) denote the Smarandache primitive function, then we have
A different method must be used for each of the 65 primitive functions. For a primitive function like Plus, the method for computing derived distributions is elementary.
As discussed earlier, each primitive function has its own method; e.g., Plus adds the values of each instance.
Roughly speaking, the keys of an LHS value table are the natural join of the keys of the RHS value tables, while the values are determined by the particular primitive function. However, as others have noted [11], the conventional natural join can lose data in certain circumstances.
Syntel uses a family of side effect-free primitive functions as the single, uniform representation for operations on value tables.
Test functions are classified in terms of surface's features and the primitive functions used for its construction (or setting-up).
"Abd that behavior has some of the properties that some more primitive functions do," Carter points out, noting that the target calls are located in the limbic system, a very old region of the brain involved with instinctual behaviors.
