Given a union of maximum-length IDOSs of the remainder excluding noninvertible transitions as well as all the noninvertible transitions, there may be nonunique sets of maximum-length IDOSs for the FSM with noninvertible transitions because of different concatenation. The properties of nonunique sets of maximum-length IDOSs for FSMs with noninvertible transitions are described as follows:
From this point of view, the cum- of condividuality can be thought not only as a weak and temporary bond but also as the very capacity of transferring a singular process of concatenation from one context to another, that is, as an ability to abstract without reducing and homogenizing.
In order to use this information to assist relation classification, two strategies are presented: concatenation and entity pair-based attention mechanism.
G is said to have the countable concatenation property if for each sequence {[g.sub.n] : n [member of] N} in G and each countable partition {[A.sub.n] : n [member of] N} of [OMEGA] to F there always exists g [member of] G such that [mathematical expression not reproducible].
In Section 2, we introduce the notion of history of a factorization and we show that any nontrivial pseudovariety closed under concatenation product is 1-factorial.
Content-key Issue Server > Content Provider: SENC(Kc, [Kud.sub.1]) and SENC(Meta[parallel] [Kud.sub.1], Km) with concatenation.
We initially present the basic communication scheme in ERI-MAC, and then we discuss the adoption of packet concatenation. Finally, we mention how the use of a dynamic queuing mechanism achieves ENO states in energy harvesting sensor networks.
A digital content file is associated with a stateful license file through the content identifier (CID); each stateful license file has an entry in the LF and the license identifier (LID) is recorded in the entry; the one-way hash output of the concatenation of the PFs' locations is also recorded in the LF.
Glover's admirable ability and patient willingness to cast a careful--not cold--eye on what makes sentences hum and flow is fueled by a vital, infectious fascination with words, enabling him to reveal the inspired, alchemical, verbal concatenation at work in the most alluring and memorable fiction writing.
The fear of Friday, the 13th has its own scientific name - paraskavedekatriaphobia, a word derived from the concatenation of the Greek words ParaskevA- (meaning Friday), and dekatreA-s (meaning thirteen), attached to phobA-a (meaning fear).
A range of theoretical authorities, from classical writers up to Derrida, appear at various points, but this concatenation of viewpoints is unwieldy and does not allow for Travis's argument to develop much unity.
The proposed autofocusing algorithm is named "CPI-split autofocusing", since it consists in the partition and the concatenation of the raw data matrices of two consecutive coherent processing intervals (CPIs).
