order

 [or´der]
1. a taxonomic category subordinate to a class and superior to a family (or suborder).
2. the prescription of a physician regarding treatment of a patient.
standing order a physician's order that can be exercised by other health care workers when predetermined conditions have been met.

or·der

(ōr'dĕr),
1. In biologic classification, the division just below the class (or subclass) and above the family.
2. In a reaction, order is the sum of the exponents of all the concentration terms in that reaction's rate expression. For example, for the natural decomposition of nitrogen pentoxide, the rate expression is v = -d[N2O5]/dt = k1[N2O5]. Thus, this is a first-order reaction. A reaction involving two different compounds is often a second-order reaction (but not necessarily so). Pseudo-first-order reactions are multiorder reactions in which one of the reactants is in substoichiometric amounts. Compare: molecularity.
3. The sequence of residues in a heteropolymer.
[L. ordo, regular arrangement]

order

n.
1. A condition of logical or comprehensible arrangement among the separate elements of a group.
2. Biology A taxonomic category of organisms ranking above a family and below a class.

Patient discussion about order

Q. Is there something I could do in order to prevent headaches? I have headaches often and somebody told me that there're steps to be taken in order to prevent headaches so often... Please help...

A. I just read your question on headaches. I have them occasionally as well. I don't like to take over the counter medication for headaches, so I rely on herbal supplemnts. You are ayoung man so I'm assuming you are very healthy. This herbal supplement shouldn't hurt you. It's very safe. I take at least 2 Valerian root capsules before going to bed. It relaxes your body abd it helps to eliminate headeaches.It also lowers the blood pressure which can sometimes cause headaches. Be sure you rule out any oraganic problems which can also cause headaches. You can find Valerian root at any health food/ organic markets.Also look at your diet MSG in food gives me headaches as well. I can always tell if it's present in foods right after I eat something processed. I stick with whole foods and I do yoga which helps as well. Let me know how if this works.

Q. Alcohol designator Order? What is an Alcohol designator Order?

A. Hello friend, Council can apply for an order to restrict public drinking in a particular area or areas. An order sets out the public areas affected e.g. streets, parks and open spaces, where the police could ask people to stop drinking alcohol if their behavior is deemed to be anti social. The police will be able to confiscate and dispose the alcohol and people could face a fine of up to £500 or arrest for refusing to cooperate.

Q. What actions should i take in order to keep my self in a sharp and restricted fitness control?

A. I would try some body weight circuits 3 to 4 times a week.

For predicting lower order statistics considering lower records leads to better results while upper order statistics can be predicted better by considering upper records.
Remark 3.1 Setting m = 0, k = 1, in (3.2), we obtain recurrence relations for product moments of order statistics for the exponentiated inverted Weibull distribution in the form
Note that this statistic is nothing more than the Pearson correlation estimate for the correlation between the expected and empirical order statistics for the multivariate squared-radii statistic.
Then, the moments of the minimum order statistic [Y.sub.1:n] are given by E[[Y.sup.k.sub.1:n]] = [[beta].sup.k]E[[X.sup.k.sub.1:n]], k = 1, 2, ....
Jones [5] discusses this general beta family motivated by its order statistics and shows that it has interesting distributional properties and potential for exciting statistical applications.
Ranked random variables in such a sequence are known as order statistics (David 1981).
In Section 5, we derive algebraic expressions for the moments, moment generating function (mgf), mean deviations and Rinyi entropy for the order statistics. The estimation by maximum likelihood--including the case of censoring--is presented in Section 6.
It is well known that if v = 0, k = 1 then [X.sup.*](m, n, v, k) reduces to the (n-m+1)th order statistics [X.sub.n-m+1 : n] from the sample [X.sub.1], ..., [X.sub.n], and when v = -1, then [X.sup.*](m, n, v, k) reduces to the mth lower k-record value.
