bootstrap process

bootstrap process

[′büt‚strap ‚präs·əs]
(aerospace engineering)
A self-generating or self-sustaining process; specifically, the operation of liquid-propellant rocket engines in which, during main-stage operation, the gas generator is fed by the main propellants pumped by the turbopump, and the turbopump in turn is driven by hot gases from the gas generator system.

This would be achieved firstly by ensuring the integrity of the bootstrap process by which devices obtain information to allow them to be authenticated for operation within an IoT domain, and secondly by ensuring integrity of the devices' updating processes to prevent subsequent attacks.
The entire bootstrap process is essentially a sequence of steps, where [w.
the bootstrap process requires 2(a - [bar]a)N fewer evaluations of z([w.
a](x)) in each step of the bootstrap process by reusing as many of these values as possible.

j, i, s] values in the first step of the bootstrap process.
There is also another way to achieve savings in computation at the beginning of the bootstrap process.
2k]) error bound cannot be improved further by the bootstrap process.
However, when different orders are present in the system of ODEs, it carries on the bootstrap process beyond the (k - mmax)th bootstrap step while the standard bootstrap approach does not do so.
Therefore the bootstrap process can proceed as long as (12) is satisfied.
2k]) bootstrap approximation from COLNEW's approximate solution, the bootstrap process must construct [w.
Suppose that we allowed this bootstrap process to always perform k - mmin bootstrap steps, as if (13) were satisfied.
