With respect to the emission mechanism, the radiation is distinguished between two types: (a) Bremsstrahlung, coming from the component of the acceleration colinear with the particle velocity, and therefore relevant to the ballistic part of the motion, (b) Cyclotron, coming from the acceleration component perpendicular to the velocity, and therefore connected to the rotating part of the motion.
Another possibility is that a reduced eGFR, increased ACRs, and hypertension are "colinear" variables in the hazards model (i.e., they are not independent variables, so the predictive value of eGFR is diminished in a multivariate model).

The extent of genome conservation first became evident by comparative genome mapping studies, which suggested a colinear order of genes and markers shared by genomes of different species.
Although the sequence of the DhbEBF modules is colinear to the sequence of the product even then some domains need further attention.
Although numerous mechanisms have been proposed to account for global patterns of influenza seasonality, distinguishing the causal relationships from colinear and confounding associations has proved overwhelming.
* Consider Figure 2(a), given any fixed non-vertical scenario KLMI, we move the point Q so that Q, M and E are colinear, then N = I and we have the scenario of Figure 2(b).
To construct the stereo camera, the researchers positioned the two IR LED cameras side by side, such that the two focal rays of the lenses are parallel and perpendicular to the stereo baseline, and the image planes of both lenses are colinear. This arrangement ensures that the system can estimate the disparity map accurately.
This is because the CIFP and EIU models are very strongly colinear with all the other models.
Two colinear "mouseholes" located at opposite ends capture each main duct passing through the handhole.
To compare the orientations of two unit vectors, it is convenient to compute their scalar product: when the two vectors u and v are almost colinear (resp.
However, all temperature parameters are colinear with latitude, and TM-m is significantly correlated with altitude (Table 5).
