    Mathematics
    fraccionario
    • The computer programs implement basic mathematical principles such as basic geometry and fractional math.
    • The second algorithm involves linear programming with randomized rounding to convert fractional assignments into integral ones.
    • There the author describes how mathematicians moved from studying first derivatives, second derivatives, etc., to study fractional derivatives.
    • He also worked on asymptotic analysis, fractional integration and singular partial differential equations.
    • There are sections of the book devoted to arithmetic and geometric progressions, including progressions with a fractional numbers of terms, and formulas for the sum of certain finite series are given.
    • Note that sometimes a new point will be plotted further to the right than any previous one (i.e. its fractional part will be larger than any before it).
    • However, the Babylonians has no notation to indicate where the integer part ended and the fractional part began.
    • Bosanquet's early 1930s papers were on series and integration, a 1930 paper being on fractional integration, a topic he would return to many times.
    • Much of Burnside's work on hydrodynamics involved the use of complex variable and in papers of 1891 and 1892 he considered the group of linear fractional transformations of a complex variable.
    • The part after the decimal point in number r is often called the fractional part of r and written as frac (r).
    • In the fractional method shown on this page, we're adding fractional completions in a single unit of time; whereas when we began, we were adding whole completions in multiple units of time.
    • This number could be either integral or fractional.
    • Each time we take the reciprocal of the fractional part we usually get another long list of decimal places.
    • Both have identical fractional parts after the decimal point.
    • Many techniques are available to better assess the true relationship between a continuous predictor and an outcome variable, including fractional polynomials, smoothing splines or other smoothing functions.
    • It is natural to think that the behavior of iterations that start with z 0 = e it, where t is not a fractional part of 2 is chaotic and generate the set dense on the circle.
    • He examined series expansions and looked at series with fractional powers.
    • He also studied fractional numbers and learnt much of the impressive contributions that the Arabs had made to mathematics over the preceding 400 years.
    • Any fractional or decimal value must be multiplied by a whole number to eliminate fractional subscripts.
    • One of the first topics he studied, which developed from his early work on electromagnetism, was a new topic, now called the fractional calculus.

    • Astronomers often express the amount of redshift, the fractional change of wavelength, as a dimensionless number, z.
    • Infants are very sensitive to it and only the most infinitesimal fractional doses should be used.
    • The researchers found that their bimetallic cathodes worked even more effectively in the ORR than platinum alone, despite only containing a fractional amount of platinum in the monolayer.
    • Unemployment figures showed a fractional improvement but separate statistics on redundancies showed an increase of about one-third on this time last year.
    • And my input is a tiny, fractional thing of a film, and how it's dealt with in post-production, how the studio is marketed.
    • Anticipating the beat by fractional amounts on single chords or notes (Blues singers do this all the time to express pain and suffering).
    • Tiny though this fractional increase seems when expressed this way, the overall amounts are huge.
    • Since, for example, a proton has a charge of + 1, a quark would have a fractional charge.

    (crystallization/distillation) fraccionario
    • Very few of the components come out of the fractional distillation column ready for market.
    • Distillation can be used to separate volatile liquids by a process known as fractional distillation.
