[kən′vər·jəns ‚rā·shō]
(optics)
The ratio of the tangent of the angle between a meridional ray and the optical axis after it passes through an optical system to the tangent of the angle between the ray and the axis before it passes through the system.

where, for sample firm i and year t, [VOTR.sub.it] is the proportion of voting rights held by the ultimate shareholder at year t, [CV.sub.it] is the convergence ratio between cash flow rights and voting rights at year t, all other variables are similar to those defined in Equation 3.1.
We define the convergence ratio at any time as the ratio of the number of paths that exist in the system between all pairs of nodes, to the total number of possible paths (i.e., N * (N - 1)).
The convergence times and convergence ratio on the 50 replications were reported.
convergence ratio = # of feature points of convergence / # of total feature points
But, convergence ratio of the least averages square algorithms is dependent on the system and the input statistics.
The convergence ratio (recall) for these cases is summarized in Figure 8.
Given that the strength of elongational deformation is determined by the convergence ratio,[[lambda].sub.c] and [[lambda].sub.a] quantify the converging ratios in the circumferential and discharging directions, respectively (30).
The barrel diameter was 15 mm and the convergence ratio was kept constant, equal to 15/1 throughout the experiments.
Thus, the simulation suggests that the c-d cavities are not fully utilized, and the effective convergence ratio for the plates is smaller than that calculated from the geometry.
