Delegates will have the option to attend either or both conferences and benefit from joint rates.
The joint rates and accelerations need not go to zero at these so-called via points, but they must be matched between functions meeting at the via point(s).
The velocity problem in this study is considered as inverse velocity problem in which velocity state of the end effector is given and input joint rates required to produce the desired velocity are found.
Certain collective actions, such as routes, joint rates, classifications, and mileage guides, are allowed under the law.
Uncooperative Class I railroads can deny market access through switching charges or joint rates, fail to supply equipment, divert overhead traffic to other carriers, demand unfair revenue splits on joint movements, and require excessively high car hire fees.
The Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) in 1938 required an end to "the Santa Fe's undue prejudice, discrimination, and preference relative to through route and joint rates with the QA&P via Floydada" (p.
where [J.sup.+] is the pseudoinverse of J, [P.sup.[perpendicular to]] (J) is the projection operator which projects arbitrary joint rates into the nullspace of the end-effector's Cartesian coordinates, and [xi] is an arbitrary joint rate vector.
Based on the inverse Jacobian matrix [J.sub.A], it is possible to define joint rates:
It is difficult to develop satisfactory figures of the minimum volume of traffic necessary for continued success of a line, since viability depends not only upon the volume of traffic but other considerations as well, such as the rate level, the share of the joint rates (if any), the operating conditions, the effectiveness of management, and the length of the line.
Despite a method provided by Staggers for surcharging prescribed divisions of joint rates that had become unduly low, carriers usually resorted to cancellation of joint rates over junctions which short-hauled the cancelling carrier.
The impetus for cancellation of through routes and joint rates or the imposition of surcharges under Staggers came from the longstanding imbalance of divisions resulting from the Commission's ineptitude in deciding divisions cases involving official and other territories.
