This is the specialty of the presence of real singlet scalar and fermion in the ESSFSM.
Apart from the gg fusion production, many BSM theories predict TeV-scale scalars that decay to diphotons can dominantly be produced by other means, namely, through the quark-quark (qq) fusion or through the gauge boson fusions ([gamma][gamma], [gamma]Z, WW, and ZZ).
For simplicity, we use the case of emission of massless scalar with energy E from the Schwarzschild black hole with mass M to illustrate these corrections.
The Passive Scalar model was selected for the water phase and scalars are defined for each of the openings/apertures under consideration.
As shown in Figure 12, the intake scalars are tracked for each scavenge port inlet boundary separately, and one fresh scalar for all the intake boundaries.
Yet, despite wild herbivores being confronted with food supplies that display temporal and spatial variation in composition and nutrition, the body mass--gut fill scalar is often assumed to be static (Geist, 1974; Weckerly and Nelson, 1990).
where [t.sub.1], [t.sub.2], [t.sub.3] are non-zero scalars and D is a symmetric (0, 2) tensor with zero trace which satisfies the condition D(X,U) = 0, for all X, then the manifold is a super quasi-Einstein manifold.
In hydrodynamics literature, the two last scalars {[xi], [psi]] are often referred to as the "stream" and "flux" potentials.
In the past couple decades, new scalar and vector potential formulations have been heavily investigated and utilized in the electromagnetic analysis of complex media [5-16] such as anisotropic and bianisotropic materials [17-20].
Informally, a loop is P-solvable if the following conditions are satisfied: (i) the loop body consists only of nested conditionals and assignments, (ii) assignments to scalars form a linear recurrence system with constant coefficients, (iii) closed forms of scalar variables can be represented by a polynomial system over loop counters and some extra variables where there are polynomial relations among the extra variables, and (iii) updates to arrays can be handled as uninterpreted functions over array and scalar variables.
for a [not equal to] 0, where [~.a] = [r/na]([a/n-1] + 2b) and [~.b] = -[br/a] are non-zero scalars. By virtue of (3.10), it follows from (3.12) that a quasi-conformally at A[(PRS).sub.n] is a manifold of quasi-constant curvature.
