To achieve the optimality of the CG error vector in the A-norm an oblique projection has to be used (see Sections 11 and 12), which can be viewed as an A-orthogonal projection however, and has nothing to do with the oblique projections promoted here.
In Sections 5-6, we modify the basic setting by introducing an oblique projection that enables us to deflate approximate (possibly generalized) eigenspaces and to introduce a truly deflated GMRes method.
The accuracy of measurements performed on straight lateral radiographic projections with superimposed limbs was not consistently superior to measurements on oblique projections with a slightly rotated pelvis.

Coronary angiography (30[degrees] right anterior oblique, 35[degrees] caudal and 60[degrees] left anterior oblique projections of the left coronary system) demonstrated a rare anatomical variation, in which the sinus node artery had a long course originating from the distal part of the left circumflex artery below or behind the left auricle (Fig.
