He still remembers the Dewey Decimal code for them at the library --741.5973--where he read his way through the Marvel collections, Doonesbury and Krazy Kat.
There are two coding points in it, with coordinates (1,1) and (2,1), respectively; according to (8), they represent the 1st and 2nd binary bits, respectively; the absence of coding points in other 7 positions with positive integer coordinates means the statuses of other 7 binary bits are 0; thus, the encoded binary code is 000000011, and the corresponding decimal code is [2.sup.0] + [2.sup.1] = 3.
Once [H.sub.a] is recovered, the target coordinates (i, j) of each coding point can be computed according to (9), and corresponding binary bit k of each coding point can be further acquired according to (8); then the binary and decimal code is finally decoded.
It has been placed there by the Campus Party and each one has a binary decimal code which needs deciphering.
The catalog can be searched by keywords or by specific Dewey Decimal Code. It is also possible to read sections of the catalog.
The ChrW function displays the Unicode symbol corresponding to the given decimal code. The Space function creates a given number of spaces.
Aboveground biomass was measured at physiological maturity (DC90) and grain yield components at DC 90 (Zadoks decimal code, at ripening when the kernels are hard), including tiller number per dry weight (DW) and head number per DW according to Fitzgerald et al.
Large biomass responses (P< 0.001) to N fertiliser were also observed at DC31 (Zadoks decimal code, stem elongation where the 1st node is detectable), data not shown.
