permanent error

permanent error

[′pər·mə·nənt ′er·ər]
(computer science)
An error that occurs when a sector mark on disk pack or floppy disk is incorrectly modified by writing data over it, and that can be corrected only by clearing the entire disk and rewriting the track and sector marks.

Thus, when the error rate increases, the MTBF is decreased and hence K must be decreased so that the permanent error latency (i.e.
For classifying transient and permanent errors, some researches Yu and McCluskey, Bezerra et al.
The main causes for errors between calculated and measurement results are: the finite sizes of the sensor, the permanent error of the place of sensors in it's putting in different points and orientation of it's axis (the angle between the vector of magnetic induction and the axis of sensor), the error of the measurement of current in the girdle coil, the influence of other magnetic fields with the same frequency f = 50Hz.
This work shows that uncompensated friction will result in permanent error in tracking, but robustness of the controller will keep system stable.
If there is a permanent error, it will skip the file and complete the rest of file transfers so one can fix the problems later and retry just failed transfers.
Error correcting code (ECC) protection for detecting and correcting transient and permanent errors
Bright and dark patches may appear which are actually unreal, and due to small errors in collimation, small permanent errors in the telescope optics, the effect of secondary supports, irregularities in the CCD response, and random noise.
Perhaps the Southern Writer label alone led him to change, to wish to be recognized as more than a sound, a regional flavor or a condiment of phrasing, so in 1968 Price took a big chance with the somber Love and Work, and followed it a couple years later with Permanent Errors, a short-story collection that has never received its due praise.
