Suppose [V.sub.1],..., [V.sub.m-1] are pairwise disjoint sets in L = V U.
A number of studies have addressed the issue of target coverage; however, only fewer of them considered the disjoint target coverage based on minimum relay energy.
That is, by removing [n/2] - 1 edges from any complete geometric graph, the resulting graph has k + 1 = [n/2] disjoint edges, i.e., a plane perfect matching.
[17], proved that disjoint union of k -isomorphic copies of G is a G - supermagic graph if and only if | V (G) | | E(G) | is even again by Maryati et al.
If a,b [not member of] [P.sub.v], then ab [not member of] [M.sub.v], and hence [M.sub.u] and [M.sub.v] are disjoint. If a,b [member of] [P.sub.v] then v is the left child of its parent and all the edges in [M.sub.v] cross l(v) (possibly except one edge which is to the right of l(v)), while ab is to the left of l(v).
This paper investigates the k-disjoint-paths (k-DP) problem: in a WSN, given two nodes s and t, a positive integer k, finding k disjoint s ~ t paths, we expect that the k-DP problem can be solved with correctness guarantee; that is, an algorithm will output minjk, k*| disjoint s ~ t paths.
If X is [vg.sub.1] then distinct points of X have disjoint vg-closures.
It follows from Theorem 4.14 of [1] that there exists some f [member of] [(E).sup.+] and there exists a disjoint sequence ([f.sub.n]) [subset] [0, f] which does not converge to zero in norm.
Recall that [alpha],[beta] being cardinal numbers, [alpha] = [absolute value of A], [beta] = [absolute value of B] where, A,B are disjoint sets, the sum [alpha] + [beta] is the cardinal number [gamma] = [absolute value of A [union] B] Y Concerning an infinite sum, if the sets [A.sub.i](i [member of] I) are pairwise disjoint and, [k.sub.i] = [absolute value of [A.sub.i]] then [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] ([4], p.
A brutally candid account, narrated in the form of disjoint non-chronological yet overpowering personal memories.
The difficulty is the passage over "frontiers" (borders between two disjoint spaces or anti-spaces); i.e.
By providing natural integration with Web, e-mail, and voice telephone technologies, SIP will help industry to converge formerly disjoint applications.
