In a striation edge image, those edge points composing one connection unit only represent the position where intensities change most severely in a single striation mark.
(2) The second model describing striation formations on the laser cut surfaces was introduced by Arata, Miyamoto and Maruo and is generally more established.
The magic circle is the very thing which allows players to distribute themselves in new, transgressive ways "in the course of one's crossings." When viewed from one perspective, the magic circle appears as a series of striations, a device designed to ensure successful completion of the game; when viewed from another, it appears as a smooth, multifaceted space which can develop and accommodate highly differentiated flows of desire in a positive, productive way.
Dorsum of head densely sculptured with very small, shallow foveolate punctures, broadly separated; mid dorsum to almost all of promesonotum with dense, fine longitudinal striations mixed with scattered small punctures, periphery of promesonottum, dorsal and posterior face of propodeum and petiole densely reticulated.
Just as the caging of Eastern art within Western institutions ignites the Mu'tafikah to action, to attempt to free the nomadic art from such spaces of striation, so the Atonist efforts to contain Af rican Americans and their culture within the striating space of the city--boxed in the parameters of the metropolis, where its boundaries and potential permutations can be policed--ultimately inspire the J.G.C.s to look for "new combinations" that defy the Western notions of space and culture.
Oblique striation has been described for muscles of platyhelminths, nematodes, gastrotrichs, nematomorphs, priapulids, pogonophora, chaetognathes, annelids, molluscs, brachiopods, and an echinoderm (3-7, 9), and dense bodies are an obvious feature in all taxa.
Striation marks are touched upon in many publications, most notably in the literature focused on the critical speed formula.
A lack of control may disrupt the striation visual characterization, decreasing the trained predictive modeling capability.
Comparisons between individual saws shows significant overlap in striation magnitudes.
