The (dashed) solid blue lines indicate (cyclically adjusted) net lending, while the (dashed) solid red lines indicate the (cyclically adjusted) primary balance.
So a way to build a Type 2 snark is to make a cyclically 4-edge-connected cubic graph from a graph of maximum degree 3 which is Class 2 and a graph of maximum degree 3 which is Type 2.
The proposed method employs a basic signal processing operation in time domain, which involves linear combination of one OFDM sequence with cyclically shifted and scaled version of other OFDM sequence.
Romanov determined, that at [e.sub.u]/[e.sub.f] < 0.45 materials cyclically soften, at [e.sub.u]/[e.sub.f] > 0.6 cyclically harden and at 0.45 < [e.sub.u]/[e.sub.f] < 0.6 are cyclically stable (Table 1).
With heating pulses becoming longer at rising pressure not only the filament but also a part of the surrounding gas volume begins to heat up cyclically. Because heat capacity of the gas is--also at high pressure--depending on pressure, more and more heating power is necessary to heat-up the gas volume.
For the virtuous countries discipline should be focused on not letting the cyclically adjusted balance deteriorate, in order to prevent growth masking a deterioration of the underlying fiscal stance.
While all of the regions continue to be cyclically high, the third-quarter HPI data shows that growth is decelerating (0.84 percent since second-quarter 2002).
When kept in constant darkness, the group was cyclically active with 77% of their daily activity occurring during their subjective night (data not shown).
In the early 1980s, Hunt discovered cyclins, proteins that are produced and degraded cyclically. When cyclins bind to CDK molecules, "this complex activates a bunch of proteins," Elledge says.
At the same time, with debt service current and market-risk premiums cyclically low, coupled with the same inability to quantify and measure risk, supervisory criticisms of standards traditionally have been difficult to justify.
They played with visual and rhythmic perception, and with Autour de la perception (1968), he began experimenting with computer animation, again emphasizing non-representational, cyclically repeating images.
The pulse mode works with three different working potentials, which are applied cyclically. In this way the electrode surface is freed from any adherent reaction products after each measuring point and an activated surface is produced for the next measurement - something that is particularly necessary for carbohydrate analysis applications.
