For the nonlinearities (activation functions), the first assumptions of boundedness, monotonicity, and differentiability have been all weakened to a Lipschitz condition.

Now, from the first equation of system (1) and the monotonicity of y(t), we have
This lemma is stated for the smaller and simpler probability 1/(n ln n), but applies also to larger p by monotonicity.
In this paper, a direct approach based on the monotonicity principle is used [24].

Monotonicity ([E.sub.C] > [E.sub.D]) holds when [p(C | C) - p(C | D)](T - P) > P - S + 9(C | C)[(T - P) - (R - S)].
The arguments for considering an explanation on the basis of monotonicity on the part-whole relation as a solution to the puzzle posed by the data are found in Section 5, and Section 6 argues that monotonicity on the partwhole relation cannot explain the Estonian data.
Together with Theorem 2.2 we deduce that [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is not contained in [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII](K), hence by the monotonicity of the index, the test-map (3) does not exist, which finishes the proof.
Finally, deviations with a' [greater than or equal to] a and d' [less than or equal to]d can only increase the payment made by a winning agent by monotonicity (since the critical value must increase) and will have no effect on the outcome for a losing agent.
The monotonicity of the function N[a, b; p, q; r, [alpha], [mu]] is proved in the following theorem.
This means the strong convexity of the functional, which implies the uniform monotonicity of the nonlinear elliptic operator, defined by (3.1).
