Chronometric invariants and co-moving coordinates in the general relativity theory.
Most research in this area uses a chronometric method.
In it he proposes that the site of Pech-Merle is entirely Gravettian (based on style and direct chronometric dating), and rejects the notion of there being later additional periods of activity (Solutrean and Magalenian) based on style alone.
Chronometric Invariants--On Deformations and the Curvature of Accompanying Space.
The optimism generated by chronometric refinement that culminated in the ability to calculate longitude, the Holy Grail of seafarers, could not exist in the medical sphere.
LGM uses repeated measures raw-score data as indicators of the latent factors that are interpreted as chronometric common factors representing individual differences over time (McArdle, 1988).
Chronometric Invariants: On Deformations and the Curvature of Accompanying Space.
The structure of this book is eclectic, with some chapters more closely related to the main topic, the Lower Palaeolithic of East Asia (Yi: Imjin Basin handaxes; Petraglia: Chronometric ages of the 'Early' Indian Acheulean; Simanjuntak: Indonesian Acheulean tools; Gao: Palaeolithic handaxes and Lower Palaeolithic of China; Buvit & Terry: Siberian Palaeolithic).
We have also obtained numerous radiocarbon dates from intact features and floors and defined several site phases (Table 1), ranging in chronometric age from 13 720-13 260 cal BP for the first human presence, from ~8979-7500 cal BP for a pre-mound occupational phase and from ~7555-4510 cal BP for subsequent mound-building phases.
On the other hand, we could consider these problems by means of the mathematical apparatus of chronometric invariants, which are physically observable quantities in General Relativity.
The new chronometric evidence for the Early and Evolved Aurignacian at the key site of Abri Pataud, Dordogne, France, is also comparable to that from Franchthi (Higham et al.
It was developed from ceramic typologies from excavations in the citadel itself (site ASW2; Coningham 2006), the monastic typologies mentioned above (Bandaranayake 1974; Gunawardhana 2009) and chronometric dates from the individual excavated sites.
