quasi-isometric

quasi-isometric

term introduced 1997-1998 by Legg and Spurway, to indicate the condition in which muscles, though not strictly isometric, nonetheless remain for many tens of seconds under load sufficient to restrict blood flow substantially and thus produce metabolic and hence fatigue effects virtually indistinguishable from those experienced during strictly isometric contraction, sustained for similar time under equivalent load. Occurs for example in quadriceps of a dinghy sailor in a fresh breeze or of a jockey standing in stirrups.

In this study, authors have compared a dynamic evaluation of the inspiratory muscles (S-Index) with a quasi-isometric evaluation (MIP) including a scientific rational about an isokinetic and isometric limb muscles evaluation, even considering that the S-index is not an isokinetic parameter.
The Park City Mathematics Institute Graduate Summer School for 2012 focused on geometric group theory, and four lectures each discuss CAT(O) cube complexes and groups; geometric small cancellation; proper CAT(O) spaces and their isometry groups; quasi-isometric rigidity; the geometry of outer space; some arithmetic groups that do not act on the circle; lattices and locally symmetric spaces; marked length spectrum rigidity; expander graphs, property (tau), and approximate groups; and cube complexes, subgroups of mapping class groups, and nilpoint genus.
