In addition, each lot is subjected to sample function testing, which simulates the manufacturing environment to further ensure part performance.
From the RFT perspective, the explicitly reinforced function of A1 (as a sample stimulus with regard to B1) and the explicitly reinforced function of B1 (as a comparison stimulus with regard to A1) have been transformed in accordance with the mutually entailed relation of symmetry (i.e., the sample function of A1 has been transformed into a comparison function and the comparison function of B1 has been transformed into a sample function).
A sample function identification form used to guide agencies in completing this inventory is shown in Exhibit 1.
Therefore, the actual target realization is an unknown sample function generated from the PSD of the true target class.
In contrast to the continuous case, iscrete sample functions must be periodic with a finite bandwidth to fulfill the requirements for the DFT.
All cyclone end sample functions are easily controlled from the operator's cab.
