Parameter

A model is a combination of variables, such as GDP growth, and coefficients which multiply these variables. The coefficients are often estimated from the data. The coefficients are called parameters.

Known for their dependability, Parameter storage chambers and rooms deliver precise temperature and humidity control without requiring boilers, steam injectors or high purity water - and using half the energy of a typical system.
In parametric modeling, cost of previous similar projects and data of important parameters impacting cost are compiled.
Since one can measure at least four parameters with high precision: the total decay rate, a, A and B coefficients, one naively would expect that simultaneous analysis of these data may lead to an over-determined system of algebraic equations with the possibility of extracting the unknown parts of radiative corrections.
Each of the eight parameters was divided into several subgroups.
Serum protein was [greater than or equal to] 60 g/L in all patients, plasma coagulation parameters were not altered, and mild bleeding signs (subconjunctival bleeding, petechiae) were present in only three patients with a platelet count <60 x [10.
The score sheet breaks the parameter into each of the four aspects and the associated indicators.
8220;Although Parameter has enjoyed a presence in the UK and Europe for many years, this distribution agreement will make us even more competitive and help us better communicate how Parameter products resolve clients' stability storage needs,” said Clay Hile, president and CEO.
The traditional approach in generating parameters for the PI controller starts with linear mathematical model of the controlled system calculated around predefined stationary state.
Because free neutron decay is unencumbered by the many-nucleon effects present in all other nuclear decays, measurements of the parameters that describe neutron decay can be related to the fundamental weak couplings in a straightforward fashion.
Noting that peak formation is really about in-depth understanding of a particular machine's idiosyncrasies and fine-tuned chemistry, Bengtson sees recent advances in chemistry capable of allowing "decoupling" of the three parameters, but complete decoupling as impossible.
The software can also simplify multiple-stage marking operations, says the company: The operator simply drags and drops a single icon into a part CAD file, whereupon the software automatically assigns multiple processes with varying laser parameters for each process.
2002), increased concurvity in the data used to fit a semiparametric spatial GAM leads directly to increased downward bias in the estimated standard error of the fitted linear parameter and, consequently, to inflated type I error in the standard significance test of this effect.
