As it is standard in the literature, this is referred to as an ergodic distribution.
The effect of angular spread [k.sub.el] and number of clusters L on the ergodic capacity under various SNR for SBE mode are presented in Fig.
To determine the throughput, we need to evaluate the ergodic capacity for relay to source [S.sub.1] link, [C.sub.1], and for relay to source [S.sub.2] link, [C.sub.2].
At first ANFIS is applied to rejected sentences by FCS and then consequently ergodic HMMs with 2 states are applied to the rejected sentences by ANFIS in Hybrid-II.
The dynamical system ([THETA], g) is uniquely ergodic.
The Markov process X(t) has a unique ergodic stationary distribution [pi] (.) if there exists a bounded domain D [subset] [E.sub.d] with regular boundary [GAMMA] and
holds, then system (5) has a unique stationary distribution n(*) and it has ergodic property.

In particular, the SM array has a more robust performance over the angle deviation in the horizontal plane; as calculated by the data in Figure 11(a), if [theta] = 10[degrees], the ergodic capacity drop is only 1.85% for the SM array, whereas the value for the BF array is 27.03%.
If this holds then P(t) is said to be strongly ergodic. As observed in [2], P(t) is strongly ergodic if and only if F(t) is dishonest.
To proceed we modify the question and ask the following: assume that we are given a dynamical system which is ergodic. What properties should its phase space have to allow for a growth rate given by (8)?
