It is well known that star-shaped polymers featuring only one branch point
per molecule show similar rheological behavior as linear polymers.
A symmetric branch point
in a tree T is an internal node v such that if [v.sub.1] and [v.sub.2] are its children, then the subtrees [mathematical expression not reproducible] and [mathematical expression not reproducible] of T rooted at them have the same shape.
The cross sections of the undeformed intima and adventitia were calculated by registering the cross sections of the deformed intima and adventitia with the cross sections of the undeformed intima that included these branch points
. Figure 20 shows the result of registration between the cross sections of the undeformed and deformed intima at a branch point
A point [z.sub.0] is a branch point
for f if f'([z.sub.0]) = 0.
Caption: Figure 2: Example of branch point
and vessel tortuosity detection: (a) vessel tortuosity measured using a thinned vascular network and (b) branch points
and acute angle mapped on vessel-enhanced image in binary format (segmented image).
The landmarks identified are the intersections of wing veins with the wing margin, intersection of cross vein with major vein branch point
. The description and locations of the landmarks are presented in Table 1 and Figure 3.
* Step 1: Collect the symbolic predicate at the last instance of the branch point
in a loop.
Always cut back to a bud or branch point
. Never leave a long stub, which not only will look ugly, but invite insects and disease that could cause long-term problems.
The inferior gluteal nerve branch point
was chosen as the proximal limitation for surgical dissection of the upper sciatic nerve.
There were occasional situations in which my diagnostic algorithm reached a branch point
and I needed to know whether a fever was present.
She said: "From our branch point
of view this is the first day of continuing action, and I assume that from the point of view of the other unions if they don't reach an agreement over the pensions situation they could strike again too."
