recursion

In programming, the ability of a subroutine or program module to call itself. Recursion is used to write routines that solve problems by repeatedly processing the output of the same process. See recurse subdirectories, circular reference and recursive descent parser.

Be that as it may, given the importation policy of the French planters coupled with the relative isolation of the newly arrived Africans on the island from the whites and Affranchis, the Africans imported to Saint-Domingue by the French were able to maintain and recursively reorganize and reproduce their African Vodou ideology, ideological apparatuses, practical consciousnesses, and social relations of production without any discontinuity in spite of the orders of the Code Noirs, which they tirelessly fought against.
In the proposed control scheme, the process model was identified from the input/output data, and could be updated recursively. Through this process, the reliance on numerical simulations is avoided.
Now that we are increasingly dependent upon recursively self-improving AI to maintain our cybersecurity, such systems will likely continue improving self-awareness and their sense of vigilance, alertness, and sustained attention--which are three primary qualities identified as fundamental to consciousness.
Since [q.sub.m] > [2.sup.(m-4)!], for m [greater than or equal to] 5 (here we used that [mathematical expression not reproducible] and so [q.sub.n+1] [greater than or equal to] [q.sup.n-1.sub.n] yielding, recursively, that [q.sub.n+1] > [2.sup.(n-3)!]), then
Since [Q.sub.n] is defined recursively as [Q.sub.n-1] x [K.sub.2], for n = 2, .., where [Q.sub.1] is a simple graph with 2 vertices together with a single edge incident to both vertices, [Q.sub.n] has 2 copies of [Q.sub.n-1] with edges connecting between them.
By employing the recursively learned knowledge of the occupancy patterns and thermal zone's heat transfer characteristics, the controller algorithm outputs whether or not the temperature setback should be applied.
Here we recursively apply the same strategy to the subtree [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
Among his topics are the space of mind designs and the human mental model, how to prove you invented superintelligence so no one else can steal it, on the limits of recursively self-improving artificially intelligent systems, the artificial intelligence confinement problem and its solution, and controlling the impact of future superintelligence.
Additionally, dtSearch products can parse, index, search, display with highlighted hits, and extract content from full-text and metadata in several data types, including: Web-ready content; other databases; MS Office formats; other "Office" formats, PDF, compression formats; emails and attachments; Recursively embedded objects; Terabyte Indexer; and Concurrent, Multithreaded Searching.
Next we generate a sequence [x.sub.n] recursively (graphically) as shown in Figure 1, with [x.sub.1] = 6 as our starting point.
It is an extended form of BBHE which recursively decomposes the given image up to r and 2r sub parts after which each sub image is enhanced independently.
Lounsberry blends theory, close reading, literary history, biography, and Woolf's other work in a readable narrative at the same time she achieves what she set out to do in her introduction--her argument for the diary as diary builds steadily and recursively. She successfully challenges long-accepted categories for Woolf's diaries and sometimes questions readings of specific diary passages; quoting one interpretation by Katherine Dalsimer, for example, she then baldly states, "This I do not find" (40).
