sequence

Pediatrics Anomalad An array of multiple congenital anomalies resulting from an early single 1º defect of morphogenesis that unleashes a 'cascade' of 2º and 3º defects; a sequence is also defined as a set of clinicopathologic consequences of the aberrant formation of one or more early embryologic structures. See Dysmorphology.
Sequence types  
Malformation Incorrect formation of tissues
Deformation Abnormal forces acting on normal tissues
Disruption Breakdown of normal tissue
Note: The Pierre-Robin sequence is caused by 1º mandibular hypoplasia, which results in a tongue that is too small for the oral cavity and which drops back–glossoptosis, blocking closure of the posterior palatal shelf, resulting in a high arched U-shaped cleft palate Examples of sequences include athyroidotic hypothyroidism sequence, DiGeorge sequence, early urethral obstruction sequence, bladder exstrophy sequence, cloacal extrophy sequence, holoprosencephaly sequence, jugular lymphatic obstruction sequence, Kartagener syndrome/sequence, Klippel-Feil sequence, laterality sequence, meningomyelocele, anencephaly, iniencephaly sequence, occult spinal dysraphism sequence, oligohydramnios sequence, Rokitansky sequence, septo-optic dysplasia–de Morsier sequence, sirenomelia sequence

The description includes methods based on calculating the correlation coefficient between autocorrelation of a binary sequence received and a pattern sequence as well as methods used for filtering the presence of binary patterns.
The DO generates the binary sequence from the recurrence relation, initial vector and the coefficients and the keys keyl, and key2 from the keywords keyword 1, keyword2 respectively for decryption.
Essential to note is that the search of binary sequences with desired autocorrelation properties for N > 40 values by exhaustive method leads to an unacceptable increase in search time.
Many pseudorandom binary sequences were given and studied.
For i [less than or equal to] [P.sub.r], let [a.sup.(r).sub.i] = [a.sup.(r).sub.imodP], [c.sub.wi] and [[??].sub.wi] denote respectively the binary sequence of N = [N.sub.1] + [N.sub.2] + ...
So we designed a tent map iteration output Gray-code sequence [g.sub.i], i = 0, 1, 2, ..., into a binary sequence of Bernoulli map [b.sub.i], i = 0,1,2, ...
A skew-symmetric binary sequence is formed by interleaving an odd length symmetric sequence with an even length asymmetric sequence.
If all the sidelobes of the ACF of any binary sequence are bounded by
In the same manner as in [3], spikes are introduced into the system from the environment by reading in a binary sequence (or word) w [member of] [{0, 1}.sup.*] via the input neuron [sigma]1.
Here the characteristic sequence Xs of a set S [[subset].bar] [summation over (term)] * is the binary sequence [[chi].sub.S] [member of] [[summation over (term)].sup.w] defined by
We study the average redundancy for memoryless sources emitting a binary sequence. Let p denote the probability of generating "0" and q = 1 - p denote the probability of emitting "1".
The DAC converts the binary sequence u to a voltage signal and the power amplifier amplifies the actuation signal to a high enough power level to move the dish via the electric motor.
