  • A frigorific mixture is a mixture of two or more phases in a chemical system that, so long as none of the phases is consumed during equilibration, reaches an equilibrium temperature that is independent of the starting temperature of the phases before they are mixed. (wikipedia.org)
  • The existence of frigorific mixtures can be viewed as a consequence of the Gibbs phase rule , which describes the relationship at equilibrium between the number of components , the number of coexisting phases , and the number of degrees of freedom permitted by the conditions of heterogeneous equilibrium.

  • However, while problems associated with "mixture distributions" relate to deriving the properties of the overall population from those of the sub-populations, "mixture models" are used to make statistical inferences about the properties of the sub-populations given only observations on the pooled population, without sub-population identity information.

  • Some mixtures can be separated into their components by using physical (mechanical or thermal) means. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general outline, the method of the invention comprises synthesizing a mixture of randomly or deliberately generated peptides using standard synthesis techniques, but adjusting the individual concentrations of the components of a mixture of sequentially added amino acids according to the coupling constants for each amino acid/amino acid coupling. (google.com)
  • The term ordered mixture was first introduced to describe a completely homogeneous mixture where the two components adhere to each other to form ordered units. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mixture models should not be confused with models for compositional data, i.e., data whose components are constrained to sum to a constant value (1, 100%, etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the mixture components are categorical distributions (e.g., when each observation is a token from a finite alphabet of size V), there will be a vector of V probabilities summing to 1. (wikipedia.org)
  • This decrease in heat transfer is due to the fact that the heat transfer coefficients of zeotropic mixtures do not increase proportionately with the mass fractions of the mixture's components. (wikipedia.org)
  • The model may represent the population from which observations arise as a mixture of several components, and the problem is that of a mixture model, in which the task is to infer from which of a discrete set of sub-populations each observation originated. (wikipedia.org)
  • The individual distributions that are combined to form the mixture distribution are called the mixture components, and the probabilities (or weights) associated with each component are called the mixture weights. (wikipedia.org)
  • The number of components in mixture distribution is often restricted to being finite, although in some cases the components may be countably infinite. (wikipedia.org)
  • A distinction needs to be made between a random variable whose distribution function or density is the sum of a set of components (i.e. a mixture distribution) and a random variable whose value is the sum of the values of two or more underlying random variables, in which case the distribution is given by the convolution operator. (wikipedia.org)

(wikipedia.org)
  • however
  • However, compositional models can be thought of as mixture models, where members of the population are sampled at random. (wikipedia.org)
  • weights

An interactive mixture may not contain free aggregates of the cohesive powder, which means that all small particles must be adhered to the larger ones. (wikipedia.org)
  • various

  • liquid
