Moreover, it is corroborated via the principle of equivalence with the Unruh radiation, which takes place in the Minkowski spacetime for accelerated observers [38].
Section 4 includes the results assessing the effects of the First Principle of Equivalence and dielectric frame on the copolar pattern and the synthesis of two shaped beam reflect arrays to demonstrate the technique as well as the experimental validation.
The definition of the interventions will be based on the conclusions of the previous steps of the PRIDE research program, in line with the international recommendations of WHO (4) and UNODC (8) and based on the principle of equivalence for care and prevention with the general community.
The CJEU recalled the twin principles and noted as to their meaning, interestingly, that a limitation period "does not appear to meet that condition, but that is a matter for the referring court to determine." (79) The judgment in Transportes Urbanos discussed the availability of Member State liability damages actions and applied the principle of equivalence (and not just gave guidance) as to evaluating the purpose and similarity of an EU law-based and a domestic claim, stating that EU law precludes a rule on exhaustion of remedies before an EU law Member State liability claim is possible if this is not the case with "domestic State liability."

Thus, [R.sub.[micro]v] = 0 violates Einstein's Principle of Equivalence. Furthermore, one cannot assign the value of the constant appearing in the Schwarzschild lineelement to the Newtonian potential in the infinitely far field because Schwarzschild space is asymptotically Minkowski space, not asymptotically Special Relativity and not asymptotically Newtonian dynamics.
The second case presents the loadings one would have obtained by the classical principle of equivalence, that is, [Lambda] = 0.
The principle of equivalence reveals that "the[se] express the constant quest for, and experience of, participation in divine reality, or attempt to avoid it ...
Thus, Hughes stresses, the CERN experiment will test both the quantum theories of supergravity, which are difficult to reach experimentally, and the principle of equivalence.
