Shadow and Wednesday travel through the towns of America "past red and yellow and blue lights advertising every kind of fast food a man could imagine, as long as it was a hamburger" (Gaiman, 60), parodying the famous quote of Henry Ford in his autobiography, epitomizing American industrialization: "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." (Ford 2002, 31) Multiplicities are reduced to "hamburger"/"black"--things of stasis and arborescence --that make places and people cool in intensity and possibility of combination as well.
La pensee en arborescence va se declencher lorsqu'on lui parle mais elle va aussi etre activee par une odeur, un gout, une image.
Gross pathological and histopathological findings were consistent with diagnosis of lipoma arborescence (Figure 5A and 5B).
The Steiner tree problem in graph is to find a minimum arborescence which at least contains all nodes in subset P.
MIA [4] uses local arborescence structures of each node to approximate the influence spread, thereby gaining efficiency by restricting computations and updates only to the local regions.
A Steiner Arborescence with root r consists of a subdivision of Arcs (directed edges) as A' [subset] A and (V(A'), A') for any vertex t [member of] T\{r} including a directed route from r to t.
It is not obvious like a tree, with a main trunk and branches, this is the model of arborescence that Deleuze and Guattari (1987: 15) critiqued when they said "we're tired of trees".
Viewed linearly, successively, and in arborescence, these retranslations appear as a mess of "illocutionary strategies" (Lefevere 1992) and competing values; viewed together, rhizomatically, they yield a message.

(Indeed, every such forest can be constructed from [empty set] using merely the operations P [??] [B.sub.1]P and (P,Q) [??] PQ.) Similarly, every graded rooted arborescence (same as forest but each node is higher than its children) is a skeletal poset.
Les relations qu'entretiennent ces groupements peuvent obeir ou non a une structure de type arborescent (voir la problematique 2 qui traite de la question de << l'arborescence >> dans le domaine de l'evolution).
