(pār),
Two objects considered together because of similarity, for a common purpose, or because of some attracting force between them.

pair

(par)
1. a combination of two related, similar, or identical entities or objects.
2. in cardiology, two successive premature beats, particularly two ventricular premature complexes.

base pair  either of the two pairs—guanine and cytosine, adenine and thymine —of purine-pyrimidine bases joined by hydrogen bonds that make up DNA.

pair

1 two corresponding items similar in form and function.
2 one object composed of two joined interdependent parts. See also base pair.

pair

(par)
Two of anything similar in shape, size, and conformation.

base pair

In the double-stranded helical arrangement of DNA, the complementary purine-pyrimidine nucleotide bases (adenine-thymidine or guanine-cytosine) that are linked by weak chemical bonds. The order of these base pairs encode the genetic information in each segment of DNA.

ion pair

Two particles of opposite charge, usually an electron and a proton.

AHP provides the decision maker with a way of examining the consistency of entries in a pairwise comparison matrix; the problem of accepting/rejecting matrices has been largely discussed [5], [1], [13], especially regarding the relation between the consistency and the scale used to represent the decision maker's judgments.
Removing two adjacent vertices of G and all their incident edges, if G has at least six vertices, one obtains a graph generating a cubic semi-graph B with exactly four pairwise non-adjacent semi-edges, which is by definition a brick.
For quick convergence, [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] are updated every time, and the neighbour pixels' labels obtained in the current iteration are utilized immediately when the pairwise potential of the current pixel is calculated.
The reconstruction of the original objections to Money Pump may seem to fail, as context cuts in already at the pairwise stage, rendering the charge of cyclic preferences spurious.
With this information, we proceed to the construction of pairwise comparisons matrices between areas and between the processes associated with the same domain.
