e., both members of each interval class) and based entirely on bisection? Mathematically, this amounts to asking the following question: for which odd primes p does the set {2, [2.sup.2], [2.sup.3], .
For the mean alpha amplitude at P4 (the NFB controlled parameter), we found no significant correlations with any neglect severity measures (i.e., omissions on the left, center, or right parts of the cancellation test, deviation on line bisection).
For d = 2, the estimate (5.1) is proved in [2] for a bisection based refinement, where additional bisection of non-marked elements are required to ensure uniform [gamma]-shape regularity.
It is worth noting that for some samples the tissue at the cut site was pinched together during bisection. In these cases, the larva was completely bisected; however, the wound at the cut site for one or both halves was sealed together, and it did not appear to reopen.
The bisection method for root-finding applied to (4.1) starts with an initial guess for an interval [x-, x+] containing the root x, and iteratively updates this interval via

Specimens of the 2nd batch were cut and equipped with the load-introduction plates directly prior to each individual test according to the interval bisection method.

[4] Among them, usual limitations in vaginal hysterectomy with non-descent uteri are bigger sizes, but now even with bigger sizes, hysterectomy can be facilitated by bisection, myomectomy, wedge debulking, intramyometrial coring, morcellation and newer technique like technique of electrocautery and radiofrequency technology of sutureless surgery.
