splitting

 [split´ing]
in psychoanalytic theory, a primitive defense mechanism in which the self and internal and external objects are divided into parts that are either “all good” or “all bad.” Characteristic of very young children, it is also seen in those with borderline personality disorder and sometimes in those with other personality disorders or psychoses.

This gives rise to a splitting into (5+1) peaks - a sextet.
This proton exchange is too fast for the OH-[CH.sub.2] splitting to be observed in the typical ethanol spectrum (eg, Figure 6) without OH-[CH.sub.2] splitting (Kemp, 1991).
(See [14].) Let A [member of] [R.sup.nxn] be symmetric positive definite, and let A = M - N = P - Q be both P-regular splittings. Then [rho](T) < 1, where T = [P.sup.-1]Q[M.sup.-1]N, and therefore the sequence {[x.sup.(i)]} generated by (1.4) converges to the unique solution of (1.1) for any choice of the initial guess [x.sup.(0)].
Let A[member of] [C.sup.nxn] be non-Hermitian positive definite, and let A = M - N = P - Q be both P-regular splittings with N and Q Hermitian.
The present work provides further investigation on the second-order splitting of the local-time peak.
As easy to see, from (2), every subsequent value of the local-time peak splitting [DELTA][t.sub.n] needs more than two orders of resolution enhancement.
In this paper we show that in all its existing applications, the splitting lemma can be viewed as a mechanism to bound [[parallel]W[parallel].sup.2.sub.2] for a given W.

For this space, there exist robust stable subspace splittings, see [4] for the bivariate version.
The following splittings are stable with a bound of the condition numbers uniform with respect to the coefficients [c.sub.0], [c.sub.1], .
As it can be appreciated, Algorithm 1 can be seen as a special case of the iterative scheme (1.8) when all the splittings (1.7) are the same, with [P.sub.j] = M = diag([M.sub.1], ..., [M.sub.r]) and the diagonal matrices [E.sub.j] have ones in the entries corresponding to the diagonal block [M.sub.j] and zeros otherwise.
On the other hand, Algorithm 3 reduces to the multisplitting method (1.8) when the inner splittings are [P.sub.j] = [P.sub.j] - O and q(l, j) = 1; 1 [less than or equal to] j [less than or equal to] r, l = 0, 1, 2,....
