disequilibrium

a situation where a state of EQUILIBRIUM has not been attained or, having been attained, ceases to be maintained. If there is a natural tendency towards equilibrium, the system is said to be stable. If the reverse is true, the system is said to be unstable. See COBWEB THEOREM, DYNAMIC ANALYSIS.

In this study, nuclear gametic disequilibria decayed from initial stocking conditions more slowly than expected under random mating, caused largely by a preponderance of pure G.
Spurious gametic disequilibria can be generated by pooling samples with different gene frequencies at the loci (Nei and Li, 1973; Prout, 1973), and this effect could be produced if different inversions involving the loci under analysis were pooled.
Classical measures of linkage disequilibria (Lewontin and Kojima, 1960; Lewontin, 1964) can also be calculated.
Queues may therefore reflect either disequilibria in individual markets or systemic shortages.
Nevertheless more recent forecasts, including that published in this Review have tended not to adjust the model equations so that the effects of estimated disequilibria in company sector net liquidity have been fully taken into account.
Instead of painfully harmonizing away the myriad of national regulatory differences, the Commission opted for what has become known as the "dynamic disequilibria" approach.
As for me, I believe I see fairly well its implications for macroeconomic theory; they are the importance of the medium run, the significance of disequilibria, the nature of supply analysis, and the role of competitiveness.
The last third of the book shifts to measurement methods such as remote sensing and inversion methods, current climate issues including present disequilibria and quest for ever improving models, and a brief treatment of some supplementary topics including paleoclimatology and geoengineering.
Its main objectives are to help correct disequilibria in the balance of payments of member countries, promote the stability of exchange rates among Arab currencies and the development of Arab financial markets.
Fine mapping of quantitative trait loci using linkage disequilibria with closely linked marker loci.
However, dispersal and selection build up more persistent associations between genes inherited from the same parent (linkage disequilibria; Li and Nei 1974).
The departures from both equilibria, represented by the residuals from the cointegrating equations, are included in error correction models, to capture the responses of expenditures and revenues to each of the two disequilibria. We find that neither revenues nor expenditures responds to the budgetary disequilibrium.
