convergency
i. The angle that one meridian on the earth's surface makes with another. It equals the angular difference between the measurements of the great circle at each meridian.
ii. The angle between two meridians at a given latitude. At the poles, its value is the change of longitude, but it slowly reduces toward the equator when the value is zero, as meridians are parallel to one another. Earth's convergence = Change of longitude (ch long) × Sine latitude.
iii. The difference between the great-circle bearings of two meridians. The angle (b − a) in the figure in (i) is the earth's convergence = ch long × sine lat.
iv. Also called earth's convergence.

From the convergency curve in Figure 2, we can see that the iterative algorithm in this paper is efficient.
The spherical harmonic series rely on the truncated expansion of binomial expressions that must be investigated for convergency. Numerical studies revealed that the series diverged when the values were evaluated at the surface of the sphere of radius R.
There may be some built-in differences in the processes behind the creation of accounting standards that cause convergency to be done slowly, and there's not a thing wrong with that.
As a result, when a Chinese leader is encountered who does not fit the pattern, such as Lim Boon Keng in Singapore, he could be analysed in terms of his exceptional status using concepts such as "contradiction", confusion, and schizoid nature, as in Lee Guan Kin's study, The Thought of Lim Boon Keng: Convergency and Contradiction between Chinese and Western Culture (1991).
Another example: Article 121.1 of the Treaty provides for other possible interpretations since it is sadi that "the convergency reports should also take into account the development of the euro, the results of market integration, the situation and the evolution of the balance of payments...".
(150) Chapter VI's Convergency Program calls for the creation of codes of conduct at the community level for commercial communications and professional ethics.
With the increasing us of IASM teams in work organizations and the convergence of many high-technology fields, broad longitudinal teams in work organization and the convergency of many high-technology fields, broad longitudinal investigation is needed to provide insights into the understanding of its impact on the business environment.
Herz said, "By working with the IASB on the short-term convergency project, as well as on longer-term issues, the chances of success are greatly improved."
Hart argues that the gender inequality crucial to class formation declined, replaced by gender "convergency" (largely in wages): "one concomitant of the dimunition of class consciousness which accompanied the growing affluence of manual workers was a decline in gender inequality." Just as "[g]ender inequality is the missed ingredient in the rise of class politics," Hart writes, "gender convergence is the secret of its decline" in the post-war period.
