Asymptote

In geometry, a line associated with a curve in such a way that the distance between the line and the curve approaches zero as both reach toward infinity. Asymptotes are used in calculus and are computed using limits.

Previous studies have proposed the incorporation of an asymptote less than 1 (Lysack 1980, Schnute & Richards 1990, Quinn & Deriso 1999).
Since the data are normalized to (untreated) controls, and the controls are set to 100%, one should think that the upper asymptote should run approximately through 100%.
where now, for large concentrations of agent, the killing rate asymptotes to [[theta].sub.1]B(t).
1) implies that the anomalous gain [DELTA]v in the spacecraft's velocity stems from Earth's angular velocity [[omega].sub.[direct sum]] depending on how the spacecraft's inbound and outbound asymptotes align relative to the axis of rotation.
This model is based on a pricing system initially charged per volume of data transmitted, although the "unlimited" flat-rate system is gradually becoming necessary owing to the fall in the capacity costs and of the perception of an individual asymptote of consumptions (19).
In this case, we see that the region of stability is above the curve in the interval to the right of the asymptote. The region of stability is denoted by S.
When the input ratio is at the exact ratio of the asymptote, the velocity distribution of planet gear is calculated as below.
The reason why the new locating method proposed in Section 3.1 can reduce a two-dimensional solution space to a one-dimensional solution space is that the hyperbola is replaced by asymptote when the seismic source is far away from sensors, but this replacing will unquestionably cause theoretical error while locating:
