I conclude, looking to the future, that for terrestrial productions a large continental area, which will probably undergo many oscillations of level, and which consequently will exist for long periods in a broken condition, will be the most favourable for the production of many new forms of life, likely to endure long and to spread widely.
At Punta Gorda, in Banda Oriental, I found an alternation of the Pampaean estuary deposit, with a limestone containing some of the same extinct sea-shells; and this shows either a change in the former currents, or more probably an oscillation of level in the bottom of the ancient estuary.
Inverse Problems in the Theory of Small Oscillations
The object of the research is the interaction processes of transverse bending and longitudinal mechanical oscillations of the stator of a linear piezoceramic motor.
Their work followed on from the key hypothesis that autism results from an excitatory and inhibitory imbalance in the brain, which is associated with repetitive brainwaves called gamma oscillations. A reduction in this type of brain activity has been seen during visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation in individuals with ASD.
The use of ECDM in vibroisolation elements (fluid-flow dampers) of various vibroprotection systems can significantly reduce the amplitude of forced oscillations of the protected object and the decay time of its free oscillations.
In this work oscillations of a multilayer piezoceramic hollow cylinder with electrode surfaces of separation of layers are explored.
Takaaki Kajita on Tuesday delivered a lecture on "Discovery of Neutrino Oscillations" to students and faculty of Amity University here.
Recently, shape oscillations of a single microbubble in microfluidic chips in an ultrasound field have been reported by many researchers.
Throughout the last one and a half decades, increasing attention has been paid to fast and ultrafast electroencephalographic (EEG) oscillations as a measurable electrophysiological component of potentially pathological brain activity.
Currently, the only approach to mitigating grid oscillations and avoiding blackouts is to operate well below transmission capacity, which is not very economical.
