A relationship defining the probability that a particular set, X, of products will be produced in a fusion reaction involving 2 nuclei, in which there is a limited number of possible sets of products that can form.

These factors in fixed linear model are rate 3 branching ratio , Horton shape factor, waterways density, average of rate 3 waterway decrease factor, average of decrement coefficient of 1 statues stream factor and water discharge.
The accepted degree of deviation between the 2 results is arbitrary (as are acceptance criteria for branching ratios of a compound).
In both models, the coefficient on the branching ratio indicates that bank failure rates were lower where branching was more prevalent, though only in model 6 is the coefficient statistically significant.(4) This suggests that, Where permitted, branching lowered bank failure rates.
A branching ratio of the transitions outside of established limits, broadening of the chromatographic peaks, split peaks, or an increase in the background were interpreted as potential interference.
This is due to the fact that the common cot [beta] factors cancel out when calculating branching ratio of Higgs decays to fermions.
A branching ratio of the transitions outside of established limits, broadening of the Te peak, split peaks, or a significant increase in background were interpreted as potential interferences.
The branching ratio determined for [omega] [member of] [0.035 MeV, 0.100 MeV] can be compared directly with the experimental limit of Br < 6.9 * [10.sup.-3] (90% CL) [12], with which it is compatible.
The differential branching ratio (dBR/ds) canbe obtained by dividing the differential decay rate (d[GAMMA]/ds) by the total width ([[GAMMA].sub.total]) of the [B.sup.+.sub.c] meson and then, by integrating the differential branching ratio over [mathematical expression not reproducible], we can obtain the branching ratio (BR) for [B.sup.+.sub.c] [right arrow][D.sup.+][nu][bar.[nu]] decay.
A limit for the branching ratio BR < 6.9 X [10.sup.3] (90% confidence level) was obtained, which is greater that the theoretical prediction by not more than a few tenths of a percent.
The calibrator containing MMA at 0.4 [micro]mol/L and SA at 6 [micro]mol/L was used to set a threshold for the branching ratio for the positive samples.
In addition, the decay properties such as decay constants, leptonic decay width, and the branching ratio of HLM are calculated.
Gaponov and Khafizov calculated the photon energy spectrum and branching ratio within a quantum electrodynamics framework [2], while Bernard et al.
