It is obvious that the inverse of IFFT is FFT, which is computed by the phase factor conjugation.
0]A(x) associated with it is present, then the wave function undergoes a change of the phase factor by the AB effect.
The first method employs CSS with varied delays and fixed phase rotation vector defined by the scaling factor while the second method employs fixed delay and calculates the optimum phase factor such that candidate with minimum PAPR is produced.
The first phase factor in (5) is range modulation phase.
The unified theory [10] also allows the determination of the parameter [xi] and phase factor [gamma] to get a nonredundant representation along the spiral.
The scattering of x-rays on a crystal structure with spatially distributed heterogeneities depends on the phase factor of the lattice [phi](x, z) = exp (ihu(x, z)), where u(x,z) is the vector of atomic displacement, h is the vector of the reciprocal lattice.
PC] contributes an overall phase factor dependent on [f.
Choosing master/slave boundary pairs prompts the user for the phase factor between the boundaries.
In this paper, we present the phase factor selection algorithm, which applies to the preset threshold, with reduced computational complexity.
Alternatively, based on the fact that the real part (attenuation factor) in the complex propagation is independent of the phase ambiguity, with only the determination of the imaginary part (phase factor) depending on the phase change, other works [26, 27] have enforced causality to calculate the phase factor from the attenuation factor.
Since the discovery of a geometric effect by Berry [1] in the shape of an additional phase factor after an adiabatic and cyclic transport of a quantum system, Berry's phase has been intensively investigated and generalized: the extension to degenerate subspaces by Wilckzek [2], the removal of the adiabatic constraint by Aharonov and Anandan [3] and the cyclic condition by Samuel and Bhandari [4] using the early ideas of Pancharatnam [5] and the kinematic approach to geometric phases by Mukunda and Simon [6], to name a few.
As evident through simple comparisons, both ESR and CRP estimations are similar, but partial correlation reveals that fraction of association between ESR and clinical variables are resultant from non-acute phase factors which in turn results in discordance between the ESR and CRP outcome.
