erasure

A General Medical Council (GMC) (UK) term of art for removing a medical practitioner’s name from the register of active doctors.

Types of erasure
Non-disciplinary erasure
• Administrative erasure—erasure from the register for medical practitioners in the UK due to non-payment of registration fees.
• Voluntary erasure—an administrative exercise by the GMC which doesn’t imply misconduct by the practitioner, but means that he/she cannot practise as a doctor in the UK.
• Constructive erasure—a term of art referring to a series of sanctions by the GMC against a medical practitioner that are regarded as so onerous as to constitute erasure without actual erasure.

Disciplinary (involuntary) erasure

For the conventional erasure insertion schemes, that is, RTT, OTT, and MO-RTT, the error and erasure probabilities are derived in [4-6].
In Figure 4, the performance of various erasure insertion schemes is plotted over the partial-band jamming channel with [rho] = 0.1.
We will focus on the performance gap between LLR-GMD decoding with CSIR and the other erasure insertion schemes without CSIR.

These master signifiers which according to Laclau are resistant to alternative meanings and interpretations are shattered by Jeremiah's erasure of Tambu's girlhood through abdication of his parent/fatherhood.
The patriarchy perpetuates this erasure resulting in the absence of girlhood as seen in Hove's novel Ancestors.
