In addition, the first-order coefficients for the AG effect of M1 were moderately well correlated with these same coefficients of M2 during the first lactation, but the correlations were quite weak in later lactations.
Section III numerically evaluates the accuracy of these HP transfer functions compared to the first-order Butterworth HP function.
Second, law--as I shall use the term--is those norms that, through the first-order practical reasoning of politics, those who have the authority to do so have decided should obligate those to whom those norms are addressed.
[4] for computing the optimal state sequence from a first-order HMM to a high-order HMM, that is, kth-order, where k [greater than or equal to] 2.
The x- linearly polarized light from a He-Ne laser light source is normally incident on the sample; the zeroth-order diffraction rapidly decayed and the first-order diffraction was raised as the voltage was in "on" state.
The fitting results of the zero-order kinetic model and the first-order kinetic model were shown in Table 1.
The Ghost-Fluid Method is only first-order accurate in both the [L.sup.[infinity]]- and the [L.sup.1]-norm, as well as in the [L.sup.1]-norm for the gradient of the solution.
The mean-value first-order saddlepoint approximation (MVFOSA) [4] is an alternative to FOSA.
The purpose of this book is to defend the coherence of what Kramer calls second-orderism: "second-order quantifications do not carry the same ontological commitments as their first-order counterparts." It is important to emphasize that Kramer hopes only to defend the coherence of second-orderism; he does not aim to offer any substantial argument for second-orderism.
Analog first-order filter design using a variety of active building blocks has been the focus of research for the past several decades.
Another concern is the photo-degradation kinetics, which is widely accepted as a first-order kinetics [5-7,10-12].
