Then he discusses the results from such perspectives as cation distribution in the unit cell of synthesized samples, oxygen positional parameter of synthesized samples, and the saturation magnetization of the synthesized samples from the hysteresis curve.
The SS is a positional parameter, varying according to the pelvis positioning .The pelvic tilt (PT) corresponds to the angle between the line connecting the midpoint of the sacral plate to the bi-coxo-femoral axis and the vertical plane.
Pelvic tilt, a positional parameter depending on spine and subject positions, was demonstrated to have an influence on acetabular cup orientation [16, 17].
Positional Parameters [27-29,36] vary according to pelvic position of in spaceand are subject dependent (Figure 2).
Usually [gamma] and [delta] correspond to trend parameters, [xi] is a positional parameter and finally [lambda] corresponds to a scaling parameter.
Anatomical and positional parameters used in the analysis of the sacropelvic compound are available.
In addition, the rotational and positional parameters are often correlated.
Where there positional parameters ([X.sup.1.sub.i], [Y.sup.1.sub.i], [Z.sup.1.sub.i]) and three rotation angles ([[phi].sup.1.sub.i], [[omega].sup.1.sub.i], [[kappa].sup.1.sub.i]) are six ROPs(relative orientation parameters) from the slave image frame to master image frame.
The aim of this step is that all positional parameters, angular parameters are reliably determined with an ordinary terrestrial calibration field, avoiding specialized direct measurements.
