In Section 3, the successive approximation techniques are treated for the investigation of periodic solutions of non-autonomous periodic systems.
Unlike the ABA program, which provided praise for both successive approximations to completing the task (e.g., completing two pieces of a six piece puzzle) and completion of the task, the TEACCH program only provided praise for final task completion, not successive approximations that lead to the final task completion.
This tight small show, however, revealed that these nine very different looking works of art all share a genuine concern with successive approximation. And in doing that, it also displayed their totally unexpected relationship with the traditions of old master painting.
Successive approximation Also known as shaping behavior, successive approximation modifies behavior by rewarding animals as they make attempts toward the desired behavior.
