antiparallel

[¦an·tē′par·ə‚lel]
(genetics)
The opposite orientation of the two complementary strands or deoxyribonucleic acid, 5′ to 3′ and 3′ to 5′.
(mathematics)
Property of two nonzero vectors in a vector space over the real numbers such that one vector equals the product of the other vector and a negative number.
(physics)
Property of two displacements or other vectors which lie along parallel lines but point in opposite directions.

[[psi].sup.[+ or -]] are the baryon quark-diquark LFWFs where the quark spin [S.sup.z.sub.q] = [+ or -] 1/2 is parallel or antiparallel to the baryon spin [J.sup.z] = [+ or -] 1/2.
where [P.sub.da1] is the conduction loss of the antiparallel diode in the IGBT, m is the modulation index, B is the output power factor angles, and [R.sub.od] and [U.sub.od] are the conduction pressure drop constants of the antiparallel diode.
The copper resonator is responsible for the electric field response and the coupling between the top and bottom layers create the antiparallel surface current that excites the magnetic response as shown in Figure 12.
The changes in copula parameter might be a consequence of the appearance of parallel and antiparallel streams, so the occurrence of streams is plotted along the same time axis.
First principles ab initio calculations claimed that even an antiparallel exchange coupling between a crystalline [alpha]-Fe phase and the prismatic {100} planes of [Nd.sub.2][Fe.sub.14]B would be energetically favorable, while a positive exchange-coupling constant was predicted in the [Nd.sub.2][Fe.sub.14]B (001)/[alpha]-Fe interface [9].
All of the C2 domains described so far present a conserved [beta]-sandwich fold, composed of eight antiparallel p sheets that can be separated into type I and type II topologies, which slightly differ in their [beta]-strand connectivity [32].
Power devices under consideration are silicon (Si) IGBT with Si antiparallel diodes, Si IGBT with SiC antiparallel diodes, Si MOSFETs, SiC MOSFETs, and enhancement-mode GaN transistors.
Agonistic behavior was defined as follows: encounter between two pigs that involved physical contact (biting, head-thrusting, ramming, or pushing with the opponents standing in antiparallel position and with both performing bites or knocking), and started with the first physical contact and ended with submissive behavior (escape) being shown by one of the opponents or when both piglets moved away from each other (Langbein and Puppe, 2004; Borberg and Hoy, 2009; Samarakone and Gonyou, 2009; Krauss and Hoy, 2011; Rhim, 2012).
In this study, high speed MOSFETs including antiparallel diodes are used for bidirectional active switches.

The opening chapters review the use of quantum point contacts with lateral spin-orbit coupling to create a strongly spin-polarized current, a spin MOSFET with ferromagnetic contacts whose magnetizations can be switched from parallel or antiparallel configuration, and a pseudo-spin MOSFET with a magneto tunneling junction connected to the source or the drain.
Live cell imaging and immunolabeling for microtubules and the centralspindlin constituent and kinesin-related protein, MKLP1, demonstrated that furrowing in ammonia-activated eggs was associated with aligned arrays of centralspindlin-linked, opposed bundles of antiparallel microtubules.
