Note that every possible electrostatic field configuration consists of a closed path of length 2N that starts at (0,0) and ends at (2N, 0) and is uniquely determined by a sequence of vertices ([Q.sub.0], [Q.sub.1], ..., [Q.sub.2N]), where [Q.sub.j-1] is connected to [Q.sub.j] by an edge [10,11].
"Iran supplied 40% of South Africa's oil imports before sanctions brought them to zero," Zangeneh said, adding that "we are currently seeking to open this closed path and there are negotiations underway which we hope will bear result."
In the WATCHMAN ROUTE problem, introduced by Chin and Ntafos [5] the task is to find a shortest closed path [pi] from a given starting point through a polygon P such that every point of P can be seen from some point of [pi].
At the fourth' and higher complexity classes' mechanisms determining the velocity vectors direction for two points of any connecting rod is not easy, as at such mechanisms they are connected to each other forming together a closed path of motion (closed moving contours).
Generally, for all p > [p.sub.t], there exists one closed path from one side to the other of the 3D network.
We continue by estimating a specific line integral of the electric field outside the wire along the closed path shown in Fig.
The function INITIALIZER0) identifies node [n.sub.0] as a suspected boundary node if a closed path enclosing node [n.sub.0] is not found in its 2-hop isocontour; for simplicity, we term this condition as the CLOSED-CYCLE condition.
The stator reference for the angle [psi] of the closed path abcda is taken at an arbitrary point, a, along the gap.
