Based on the eigenvalues of the second-order alignment tensor it is often useful to introduce an orientational

order parameter S [member of] [-1/2, 1], which accounts for the amount of anisotropy.

a] where [alpha] = [alpha][pi]/2, [alpha] is the angle of rotation and a is the fractional

order parameter.

Study results of microviscosity of erythrocytes membranes shown in Table 2 revealed different value

order parameter in all clinical forms as compared with data of healthy children (P<0.

OIR is termed as multi-PMF system

order parameter (Haken, 1983).

For each set F the usual

order parameter will be replaced by y where c = [[gamma].

A true ferromagnetic peak would be observed at Q = 0, but the competition between the superconducting

order parameter and the ferromagnetic order gives rise to a long wavelength oscillatory magnetic state as shown in the figure.

B](x, t) be the

order parameter which is defined as the difference between the local volume fractions of A and B monomers at point x and time t.

The growth rates were calculated from the

order parameter extrapolation to the completion of the crystalline layer.

81818, the spherical and the prolate deformed minima are degenerate and this condition defines precisely the critical point of the first order phase transition where the

order parameter is the deformation [beta].

US) and Varlamov (Consiglio Nazionale di Ricerca, Italy) provide a review of the theory, utilizing both the Feynmann diagrammatic technique and the method of functional (continual) integration over the

order parameter according to their particular advantages and disadvantages.

In the phase field method, however, the liquid-solid transition is described by an

order parameter that determines, at each location in the simulated alloy, whether the alloy is in the liquid or solid phase.

The second theme is to develop the mathematical theory of the Landau - de Gennes theory of liquid crystals, in which the distribution of molecular orientations is described by a matrix

order parameter.
