The bisection {[V.sub.1], [V.sub.2]} of graph G satisfies the following conditions: [V.sub.1] and [V.sub.2] are subsets of V with no overlap, and the union of the two sets is equal to the whole set V.
The bisection cut size of all used caterpillar graphs is 1.
One solution to the graph bisection problem is expressed as |V| bit code.
According to these findings, one can determine maturational processes related to cognitive development through measures and responses provided by bisection tasks comparing different age groups, such as adults and children.
Stimuli were presented in a fixed order for all observers (32.0, 296.0, 1.0, 2.0, 256.0, 64.0, 16.0, 4.0, 128.0, and 8.0 m), in both bisection directions (ascending and descending).
where B is the bisection and PD is the physical distance, and then submitted to a three-way ANOVA (5 Age Groups x 10 Physical Distances x 2 Bisection Directions).
All the other costs, such as the few arithmetic or comparison operations for managing and coordinating the bisection mechanism and especially the second half of each and every bisection step, i.e., finding the number of sign alternations (involving O(N) operations), are exactly the same for the simpler case of symmetric tridiagonal matrices as well as for the broader case presented here.
The Sturm property with bisection is also most suited when we want only a few eigenvalues, especially if we want particular ones like, for instance, the last (largest) k < N eigenvalues.
Without it, even for matrices of the size of tens, the bisection method does not work.
Among the most well-known numerical algorithms, bisection method, also known as binary search method, is widely used because of its simplicity and robustness.
Though there are many methods providing faster convergence, we still adopt bisection method instead of other options.
The inner looping is a collection of evaluating results for a particular set of parameters of a traffic flow model, and the outer looping is an implementation of bisection method for search of a set of optimized parameters.
