The ISO 4217 currency code for Canada Dollar.

CAD

ISO 4217 code for the Canadian dollar. The dollar traces its antecedents to the dollar of the Province of Canada, which was issued in 1858 and gradually adopted by the territories of British North America as they formed modern Canada over the course of the next century. The Canadian dollar was pegged to the United States dollar at various values, often at par, until 1950. The currency began to float that year, though it briefly reverted to the U.S. dollar peg between 1962 and 1970.

Extreme value theory is especially designed for extremum problems, and hence their semiparametric method combines the advantages of parametric modeling of tail events and nonparametric modeling of common observations.
Some 90 selected and peer-reviewed papers from the 2009 incarnation look at such topics as a parametric modeling method for thin-walled frame parts, outer space target recognition based on image sequences, machining mechanisms of an abrasive water jet on ceramics, the disassembly design of used cars, the diversified development of scholarship in local colleges and universities, the design of a micromanipulator based on a piezo actuator, an intelligent recognition algorithm based on a mechanical seal fault feature, and an ontology-based design knowledge model.
In order to achieve our goal we have applied the principles of "Integrated Engineering" and the method of "Parametric Modeling" while using the dedicated software "Autodesk Inventor Professional 2010".
History-based parametric modeling enables a user to control how a 3D model will respond to a given set of changes by designing with parameters (such as height, depth, thickness and other attributes), creating features that contain design intent, and defining relationships between these features.
While feature-based parametric modeling isn't about to go away anytime soon.
Aimed primarily at high school and college students, this book seeks to emphasize feature-based parametric modeling with Inventor as the tool used to illustrate parametric concepts.
