However, results showed that similar levels of accuracy and precision were obtained also with the cylinder and the rectangular prism. The elliptical cone was the least appropriate, as indicated by the highest CV and the lowest [R.sup.2] values.
The trigger condition is the path length that a charged lepton or its highly boosted decay products travel along the x-y plane inside the detection volume of HAWC modelled as a rectangular prism.

With respect to the infringed Apple design patents, Apple may have to prove to what extent the exterior rectangular prism shape or circular icons on the screen depicted in their design patents for an iPhone drives sales (in comparison to the other functional features, such as swiping the screen with your finger to operate the phone's features) in order to maintain as much of the original $400 million damage award as possible.
The knife exemplar is a simple rectangular prism. Different materials are used to construct copies of this exemplar.
Among the total 46 data sets of rectangular prism, 34 were selected as training data, and the other 12 were used for testing purposes.
The inversion program divides the subsurface into a number of small rectangular prisms and attempts to determine the resistivity values of the model prisms directing toward minimizing the difference between the calculated and the observed apparent resistivity values.
s--number of rectangular prisms of the [kappa] area; [x.sub.j1], [x.sub.j2], [y.sub.j1], [y.sub.j2], [z.sub.j1], [z.sub.j2]--coordinates defining rectangular prism j of [kappa] area, [[delta].sup.T] = [[[delta].sub.1], ..., [[delta].sub.s]] is the vector of densities of region [kappa], [r.sup.T] = [[r.sub.1], ..., [r.sub.s]] comes from (8) and values [r.sub.j] (j = 1 ...

The space (that represents the subsoil) is discretized through a mesh of rectangular prisms whose nodes are separated from irregular forms in the directions x, y and z, and indexed for (j, k, l) for each direction.
