exponent

(ĕks′pō-nĕnt)
In mathematics, the number that indicates the power to which another number is to be raised. It is written as a superscript (e.g., 102 or x2 indicates that 10 and x are to be squared, or multiplied by themselves). The exponent can have any numerical value and may be positive or negative; it does not have to be a whole number.

exponent

a number or quantity placed as a superscript to the right of another number or quantity, indicating how many times the number is to be multiplied by itself. For example, 106.

In the search for evidence for the long memory property in the markets, we modelled the time series using a formulation of fBm to obtain Hurst exponents H estimated by the M-R/S technique and the DFA technique, with different window sizes.
However, the Hurst exponent is only suitable for distinguishing the types of long-run dependence in time series.
From Figures 3 and 4, it can be seen that the Lyapunov exponents of the corresponding roll angle and yaw angle are almost the same while the Lyapunov exponents of the corresponding pitch angle and manipulator joint angle differ.
Generally, the scaling exponents in IMR are smaller than those of TP, which indicates stronger long-term memory characteristic for TP.
In Figures 6(a)-6(d), we plot the top Lyapunov exponents, the time history, the phase portrait, and Poincare map of nonlinear system.
After the Pareto exponents are estimated, we can estimate the allometric scaling exponent based on maximum-likelihood fitting.
Recently, Tan and Liu [16] gave some boundedness of [T.sub.[OMEGA],[sigma]] on function spaces with variable exponent. For the applications of fractional integral operator in fractional order system, we choose to refer to [17].
Such numbers are so-called the Lyapunov exponents of [mu].
Data for MA and MB were log10-transformed and Model Type II (reduced major axis, RMA) regression analysis was used to determine the scaling exponents (aRMA) and allometric constants (log bRMA) (Niklas, 1994, 2005, 2006; Falster et al., 2006; Warton et al., 2006).
In general, the participants of TransRussia give positive assessment to the exhibition, they point out activity of exponents, interesting meetings with prospect clients and development of new directions and types of services.
