for any 1 [less than or equal to] k [less than or equal to] n, 1 [less than or equal to] l [less than or equal to] h, then we can immediately obtain the following corollary.
If A [member of] [alpha](X, T) , then A [subset not equal to] [Int.sub.T] ([Cl.sub.T] ([Int.sub.T](A))) and by Corollary 5, A [subset not equal to] [Int.sub.T]([Cl.sub.T[zeta]]([Int.sub.T](A))).
Corollary 3.3 Consider unlabeled decomposable combinatorial structures whose component generating function is of the alg-log type with an algebraic exponent 0 < [alpha] < 1.
Let us also point out that for Jacobi polynomials, if one considers, in Theorem 3.5, k = 0, v = n, and [C.sub.n] = n![B.sub.n]/2[pi]i, then the corresponding coefficients solution (3.13) gives the four-term recurrence relation stated in [26, Corollary 1.1, p.
Corollary 3: If the prevalence of a condition is low, under 1 percent, even with high sensitivities and specificities, the likelihood of a positive test being false positive is considerable.
Corollary: using Theorems 5 and 6: 0 + a = a and -a + a = 0 for all a in S.
Corollary discharge is a mechanism for distinguishing self-generated from externally generated percepts and has been well described in the visual system.
The corollary involves the concepts of prevention and detection.

But as Zimmermann writes, the "Roosevelt Corollary" to the Monroe Doctrine "was born of a specific need and hedged with limiting words like 'chronic,' 'ultimately,' 'flagrant,' and 'reluctantly.' Roosevelt took pains to disclaim aggressive intent: 'It cannot be too often and too emphatically asserted that the United States has not the slightest desire for territorial aggrandizement at the expense of any of its southern neighbors, and will not treat the Monroe Doctrine as an excuse for such aggrandizement on its part."'
