dependence

[di′pen·dəns]
(medicine)
Habituation to, abuse of, or addiction to a substance.
(statistics)
The existence of a relationship between frequencies obtained from two parts of an experiment which does not arise from the direct influence of the result of the first part on the chances of the second part but indirectly from the fact that both parts are subject to influences from a common outside factor.

Some dependences of curvature on both moment and axial force are presented by Gong [5, 6], Xu et all [8].
The complementary dependences of w on F and u on N are in general agreement with the direct dependences, but complementary dependence lines have many differences from the direct dependence lines when variety of the dominant force (N = const or F = const) is examined.
Dependence of column deformations on bending and axial forces is nonlinear if yielding stresses are attained in some cross-sections of the column.
Cage, Jeffery, and Matthews [16] predicted that devices with two sets of external quadruple-series connections allow dc guideline properties and dc and ac QHR values with small and predicable quadratic frequency dependences to be measured with all sample probe leads attached at the device.
The bridge is constructed such that: a perfect unity ratio, with no frequency dependences or bridge corrections, would be [alpha] = 555.555, where a change of +1.0 in the [alpha] dials reading represents a +1.0 part in [10.sup.6] shift in the in-phase ratio signal [X.sub.M].
Large linear and quadratic frequency dependences occur for both 3TP and 4TP measurements.
Data dependence tests both detect dependences and characterize them in ways that help to guide the search for legal program transformations.
We find it convenient to describe dependences in terms of sets of constraints that define a relation between integer tuples:
We can apply our techniques to flow, output, or antidependences, but will concentrate on flow dependences (dependences from a write to a read) in this article.
