Switching

1. The act of closing a position and opening another with better prospects. This term often applies to securities and mutual funds. See also: Load.

2. In futures, the act of liquidating a contract and using the proceeds to buy another on the same type with a longer maturity. This is often done to avoid receiving delivery of the underlying.

However, some ninety instances of pronoun switching do occur, and explanations drawing on pragmatic parameters, rhyme and textual corruption have not been able to explain all of these deviations.
A switched system is a hybrid system which consists of a family of subsystems, either continuous-time or discrete-time subsystems, and a switching law, which defines a specific subsystem that is active at each instant of time.

To model the system, a pseudo-random binary sequence input, generated from MATLAB, was used as the switching function and the HVAC was switched on and off manually depending on the generated sequence to record temperature values (see Fig.

Meanwhile, the authors in [22] considered time-delay, when discussing the stabilization problem for linear stochastic delay differential equations with infinite Markovian switching, but it was hard for the obtained stability results to deal with control problem.

Due to the fact that changes in the EN occur in the frequency characteristics of the input and mutual resistances caused by changes in the resistance of the mains power, the capacities and modes of the connected loads, and possible switchings in the circuit, it is necessary to take into account these factors and determine possible ranges of changes in the resonance frequencies.
