• ###### displaystyle

(wikipedia.org)
• Using the positive sign convention, the spectral index of thermal radiation is thus α ≃ 2 {\displaystyle \alpha \simeq 2} in the Rayleigh-Jeans regime. (wikipedia.org)
• Because of the simple temperature-dependence of radiative flux in the Rayleigh-Jeans regime, the radio spectral index is defined implicitly by S ∝ ν α T . {\displaystyle S\propto \nu ^{\alpha }T.} Burke, B.F., Graham-Smith, F. (2009). (wikipedia.org)
• ###### responses

• ###### measure
• The Corpulence Index (CI) or Ponderal Index (PI) is a measure of leanness (corpulence) of a person calculated as a relationship between mass and height. (wikipedia.org)

• The bispectral index is a statistically based, empirically derived complex parameter. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### statistical
• [ citation needed ] They then fitted bispectral and power spectral variables in a multivariate statistical model to produce the BIS index. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### value
• To assign a biotic index value to a specific water site, the tester first collects macro invertebrates from portions of the sample area of the stream, river or lake and separate them into groups of similar-looking organisms. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### known
• Haines Index (also known as Lower Atmosphere Severity Index) is a weather index developed by meteorologist Donald Haines in 1988 that measures the potential for dry, unstable air to contribute to the development of large or erratic wildland fires. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### title
• For the youth of the city, competitions such as "Fashion Parade" and "Choreo Nite", with an opportunity for ramp walkers to win the title of Mr. and Miss. Index, have been organized over the years. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### Committee
• It was so named in 1966 by the New Zealand Antarctic Place-Names Committee because the shape is suggestive of an index finger. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### means
• A Haines Index of 6 means a high potential for an existing fire to become large or exhibit erratic fire behavior, 5 means medium potential, 4 means low potential, and anything less than 4 means very low potential. (wikipedia.org)
• For instance, if the elements of a set A may be indexed or labeled by means of a set J, then J is an index set. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### works
• The biotic index works by assigning different levels of tolerance to pollution to the different types of organisms. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### main
• Index is located on the North Fork Skykomish River, just above its confluence with the main channel of the Skykomish River. (wikipedia.org)
• ###### thus
• Chest wall deformities such as pectus excavatum can cause the sternum to invert, thus increasing the index, which can reach 3.25 or even as high as 5.5 Pectus carinatum Nuss procedure Haller JA, Kramer SS, Lietman A. Use of CT scans in selection of patients for pectus excavatum surgery: a preliminary report. (wikipedia.org)

• ###### specific
• Titrating anesthetic agents to a specific bispectral index during general anesthesia in adults (and children over 1 year old) allows the anesthetist to adjust the amount of anesthetic agent to the needs of the patient, possibly resulting in a more rapid emergence from anesthesia. (wikipedia.org)
