The boundary of the other disk intersects L in an interval I bounded by the two intersection points of T and L.
This is because the intersection points are derived from the tolerance by moving existing shapes.
(2) The lines [l.sub.2] and BC have no intersection point in x [member of] [0, 1].
The second intersection point X of an arbitrary line x through B describes the curve, when x spins around the point B.
Definition 7 (Hole Boundary Points (HBP)): HBPs are the intersection points of nodes' sensing discs around a coverage hole, which develop an irregular polygon by connecting adjacent points.
25 rings are reinforced at first on either side of the intersection point A before the underpassing of the northbound tunnel, and the whole reinforcement is completed after the construction of the northbound tunnel.
The encoding method is based on the gray-code coding [5], and the 3D reconstruction is achieved by the ray triangulation principle with the estimation of intersection points. The accuracy and density of the obtained point clouds are both high, and therefore it is suitable for the applications such as accurate shape measurements, 3D object recognition, and pose estimation for robotic manipulation.
The position [mathematical expression not reproducible] of the manipulator platform joint [J.sub.1,2] is defined by the intersection point between the straight lines and through the linear actuators k =1 and k = 2, and the position [mathematical expression not reproducible] of the manipulator platform joint [J.sub.2,2] is defined by the intersection point between the straight lines [g.sub.3] and [g.sub.4] through the linear actuators k = 3 and k = 4.

If the mobile target is detected by only two anchor nodes, the revised location can be expressed by the predicted location and 2 intersection points. In Fig.
Now let F be the family of connections with its element [gamma] satisfying that y c Q is a path and y goes through [D.sub.1] with intersection points in [D.sub.1] and [D.sub.2] and goes through [D.sub.2] with intersection points in [D.sub.1] and [D.sub.2]; then from the above arguments it is easy to see that, for every [[gamma].sub.i] = [gamma] [intersection] [D.sub.i] (i = 1, 2), we have [bar.H]([[gamma].sub.i]) [member of] F.
What readers in the trenches -- general counsel, dealmakers, risk managers, and litigators -- need is insight that can help them actually resolve issues at this intersection point, whether they be disputes or deal points.
