In the preliminary results we saw that the generalized monotone method combined with coupled lower and upper solutions are very useful in computing the solution of Caputo fractional differential equations (2.6) when uniqueness conditions are satisfied.
They conjectured that for any fixed graph H, the thresholds [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] and [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] are not of the same order of magnitude, and wondered about the connection between monotone H-games and strict [H.sup.-]-games, where [H.sup.-] is H with one edge missing.
This will prove useful later, when we study lineability of nowhere monotone measures.
Section 5 submits a solution to shape preservation of 3D monotone data.
The biquartic rational interpolation spline defined in (24) is monotone if the shape parameters [[alpha].sub.i,j], [[beta].sub.i,j], [[??].sub.i,j], and [[??].sub.i,j] satisfy the following conditions:
Let f : R [right arrow] R be monotone. Then, the set of all discontinuity points of f is at most a countable set in R.

Now for the price points, the all-new Jimny All Grip Pro starts at P975,000 for the GL MT; P1.035 million for the GL AT; P1.085 million for the GLX AT Monotone; and P1.095 million for the GLX AT Two-tone.
The limited map size offers only minimal room for strategic manoeuvres, and overall the gameplay is decidedly monotone. Townsmen has its origins in casual mobile gaming, which explains the shoddiness, but fails to justify the expense.
ISLAMABAD -- The exhibition featuring the works by five talented contemporary emerging artists, who used different mediums in monotone paintings, is attracting a large number of art lovers and art students of islooites.
The show's curator Arjumand Faisal explained that the idea was to bring together artists who work in monotone. 'The beauty of monotone is that in the absence of colour, the artist must concentrate on the subject and give a lot of detail to their work because that is all they have to attract a viewer,' he said.
