[′rel·əd·iv ¦gān]
(electromagnetism)
The gain of an antenna in a given direction when the reference antenna is a half-wave, loss-free dipole isolated in space whose equatorial plane contains the given direction.

The most popular is the Relative Gain Array (RGA) [29] and its further modifications, such as Effective Relative Gain Array (ERGA), Dynamic Relative Gain Array (DRGA), Non-Square Relative Gain Array (NSRGA), and Nonlinear Relative Gain Array (NRGA) [30].
"The testimony as to the need for the subject use, the promotion of public health, safety and welfare and the relative gain to the public was largely self-serving and cursory at best."
"As an algorithm progresses, its relative gain from each step becomes smaller and smaller."
Trade war mostly triggers when a State obtains relative gain instead of absolute gain.
This yields a measure of both absolute and relative gain to China from global trade policy bargaining.
According to Figure 4, the students in the trial class had a greater relative gain in the writing dimension while the control class experienced greater gains in numeracy and reading.
Primarily, the noninteracting design is preceded by a relative gain analysis to determine the most suitable input-output pairings.
Using the approach in [8], the relative gain of the MS to MD link is [G.sub.SD] = 1, the relative gain of the MS to MR; link is [G.sub.SRl] = [([d.sub.SD]/[d.sub.SRl]).sup.v], and the relative gain of the M[R.sub.l] to MD link is [G.sub.RDl] = [([d.sub.SD]/[d.sub.RDl]).sup.v], where v is the path loss coefficient and [d.sub.SD], [d.sub.SRl], and [d.sub.RDl] represent the distances of the MS to MD, MS to MR;, and MR; to MD links, respectively [16].
Like every neorealist Modi's political objective and economic model is based upon the 'relative gain theory' which promotes zero-sum game and emphasizes on the prospects for conflicts with other states.
Relative gain of the waveguide amplifiers was carried out by using a tunable laser with a working wavelength range of 1510-1590 nm (Santec TSL-210) as the signal source and a 976 nm continuous wave laser diode as the pump source.
Correlations of gains across subscales revealed that though classrooms that tended to make more relative gain on one subtest also tended to make relatively more gain on other subtests, the strength of the correlations did not suggest that classrooms making the most gains always made the most gains regardless of subject matter.
For a child with a math disability, what is the relative gain of a summer spent with a math tutor instead of friends?
