functional constraint

functional constraint

[′fəŋk·shən·əl kən′strānt]
(mathematics)
A mathematical equation which must be satisfied by the independent parameters in an optimization problem, representing some physical principle which governs the relationship among these parameters.

The support, while acting as a visual and functional constraint, is not a harmful one.
The latter, for example, are designed to be folded and put away, a purely functional constraint for size and shape so that they can be hidden within the home.
For each functional constraint, the number in column H is the numerical value of the left hand side of the constraint.
Each functional constraint is applied, and all functional results are then reconciled simultaneously to develop an integrated execution plan that best supports the unconstrained requirement while minimizing the risk of producing excess assets.
corymbosa maintains an apparently functional rbcL gene, with statistical analysis suggesting that the open reading frame (ORF) is being retained because of functional constraint rather than chance.
For the functional constraint test example described by (9), Figure 7 shows the y-w plane of the true P = 100,000-node 5D hypervolume.
Examples of apomorphic decoupling of structural components have now been documented in many clades: (1) duplication of jaw opening mechanical systems in ray-finned fishes, involving release of the plesiomorphic functional constraint imposed by the original unimodal system (Lauder 1980, 1982; Lauder and Shaffer 1993); (2) duplication and rearrangement of muscle elements in the feeding mechanism of cichlid fishes, involving release of design constraints on the mechanics of prey manipulation and transport by the pharyngeal jaws (Liem 1973); and (3) decoupling of pharyngeal scrapers from the larynx in pigeons and songbirds, involving release of constraints on feeding and ventilation (Zweers 1985).
Since the FUCA1 gene is important for reproductive strategies of bats a strong functional constraint of FUCA1 gene was shown in mammals which was caused by strong purifying selection.
Charnov (1989) showed that in a two-variable system there is a simple relationship between the functional constraint and the genetic covariance between the characters.
They cover the development of motor skills across the life span, physical growth and aging, the development of physical fitness, perceptual-motor development, and functional constraints in motor development.
functional constraints: descriptions of the functional constraints in the consultation regulationsprevious date for the start of the works: september 2019 the overall execution time of the works including the preparation period of 30 days (for each batch): 11 months (refer to the provisional schedule of execution)
Functional constraints are related to an individual's behavior patterns while structural constraints derive from an individual's physical body structure.
