determinism

 [de-ter´mĭ-nizm]
the theory that all phenomena are the result of antecedent conditions, nothing occurs by chance, and there is no free will.

de·ter·mi·nism

(dē-ter'mi-nizm),
The proposition that all behavior is caused exclusively by genetic and environmental influences with no random components, and independent of free will.
[L. determino, to limit, fr. terminus, boundary + -ism]

Patient discussion about determinism

Q. Is it effective to determine the problem? How is the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy done and is it effective to determine the problem?

A. actually it will come with three common symptoms such as : positive pregnancy, abdominal pain or cramp, and bleeding. if you're happened to feel one of those symptoms, i'll suggest you to go see your ob-gyn specialist, then the doctor will do the physical examination on you, and will confirm the diagnosis with ultrasound.

Q. In which month of pregnancy it's possible to determine gender of the fetus?

A. following marin's question - is there a difference when it comes to twins?

Q. how do i determine what is the right weight i need to be? i know there is a way to calculate it, an equation , what are the parameters in it ?

A. I don't mean to burst any bubbles, but BMI is definitely not a good way to determine what weight you should be. If you considered that a body builder or a professional athlete is considered obese under BMI standards then you would know what I mean. Here is an article about it I found on Medical News Today: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/49991.php

As long as the tampering rate is not larger than the maximal tampering rate, the representative data of the tampered image blocks can be recovered deterministically. The quality of the recovered content does not decrease as the proportion of tampered area increases.
In the optimization definition, the constraint of [P.sub.v]([DR.sub.1] [less than or equal to] 1.4982 [disjunction] [DR.sub.2] [greater than or equal to] 0.0662) [less than or equal to] 0 is specified according to the deterministically found optimal results: the safety factor of 1.4982 and the mass of 0.0662 kg.
The protocol was duplicated on the Opal-RT system in order for the real-time simulator to communicate with an APE deterministically. As was previously stated, the APE communication protocol resides on an FPGA, which is supported and included in the Opal-RT system.
Although this means that they respond deterministically to knock events, such controllers are still 'stochastic' in the sense that they control the knock event rate which is a probabilistic measure.
The ZSEP-E [21] deterministically partitions the network into zones and probabilistically elects CHs in the zones based on the maximum residual energy.
Therefore the mass distribution could not generate deterministically and logically using the Standard Model, the observed muon decay time distribution, and we need an alternative explanation.
The gray-level moments of the input image are first computed, and then the threshold is obtained deterministically in such a way that the moments of the input image are preserved in the output image.
Individuals remain deterministically in their individuals with heterogeneous working ability is born in each period t and live for up process is calibrated to match the wage distribution by age in the United States, and labor is endogenously supplied by individuals.
Implemented deterministically, this counting requires [2.sup.k+1] states.
The built-in physics simulator can deterministically calculate and display the outcome of every action in real time as all game parameters are internally known.
Therefore, in [0.sub.x], the machine reads the next input symbol a deterministically, by switching to [0.sub.1-x].
The main idea is to look for mismatches non deterministically from the first half of the string w and the second half of the string [w.sup.R], specifically:
