A uniform temporal mesh of step [[DELTA].sub.t], with [N.sub.t] time steps, is thus imposed, adding a third argument to problem parameters; for example, p(i, j , k) is the discrete counterpart of the continuous pressure p([x.sup.(i).sib.1], [x.sup.(j).sib.2], [t.sup.k])), with [t.sup.(k)] = k[[DELTA].sub.t], and denotes the elementary pressure in the cell (i, j) of the spatial mesh, achieved during the contact process after k time steps in the simulation window.
In this present paper, we develop a random stock price model by the interacting contact process. We apply MF-DFA analysis and Zipf analysis to investigate the multifractal characteristic and Zipf distribution of returns and price changes for the financial model.
The contact process and antiskid performance were also simulated and analyzed.
Through education and training in the disproportionate minority contact process, we want to foster a collective understanding of the issues and move forward as a community to solve them.
But, adhesion energy values produce a profile of polymers adsorption in the metallic surface, although not exactly reproducing the contact process of the fluid with the metal as in the visual observation test.
