  • define
  • These sequences define the optimal strategy for Wythoff's game, and are used in the definition of the Wythoff array As another example, for r = √2, we have s = 2 + √2. (wikipedia.org)
  • Characteristics
  • Characteristics of sequences: Two segments, usually no more than three or four Usually in only one direction: continuingly higher or lower Segments continue by same interval distance It is possible for melody or harmony to form a sequence without the other participating. (wikipedia.org)
  • Insertion sequences have two major characteristics: they are small relative to other transposable elements (generally around 700 to 2500 bp in length) and only code for proteins implicated in the transposition activity (they are thus different from other transposons, which also carry accessory genes such as antibiotic resistance genes). (wikipedia.org)
  • multiples
  • For example, the drawings of a random variable uniform over a segment will be equidistributed in the segment, but there will be large gaps compared to a sequence which first enumerates multiples of ε in the segment, for some small ε, in an appropriately chosen way, and then continues to do this for smaller and smaller values of ε. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • In evolutionary biology, conserved sequences are similar or identical sequences in nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) or proteins across species (orthologous sequences) or within a genome (paralogous sequences). (wikipedia.org)
  • He incorporated powerful off-stage aliens to explain the story's titular artifact, and in pondering the backstory began to flesh out the basics of what would later become the main players and setting of the Sequence: a universe full of intelligent species that live in the shadow of the incomprehensible and god-like Xeelee. (wikipedia.org)
  • repetition
  • The sequences of the gradient echo type allow to achieve very short repetition times, as the acquisition of an echo corresponds to the acquisition of a k-space line, and this acquisition can be made quick by increasing the amplitude of the gradients of rephasing and reading. (wikipedia.org)
  • For comparison purposes, the repetition time of a gradient echo sequence is of the order of 3 milliseconds, versus about 30 ms of a spin echo sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general, SSFP MRI sequences are based on a (low flip angle) gradient-echo MRI sequence with a short repetition time which in its generic form has been described as the FLASH MRI technique. (wikipedia.org)
  • The descending 5-6 sequences, also known as descending third sequences, consist of a series of chords whose root notes descend by a third each sequential repetition. (wikipedia.org)
  • drawn
  • Note that the first point above is slightly misleading, as we may specify, for example, that the values in a sequence be drawn exclusively from the set of natural numbers-we can specify, a priori, the range of the sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • On the left (in the sense that the sequence is usually drawn) lie the ellipticals. (wikipedia.org)
  • segment
  • In a melody, a real sequence is a sequence where the subsequent segments are exact transpositions of the first segment, while a tonal sequence is a sequence where the subsequent segments are diatonic transpositions of the first. (wikipedia.org)
  • Equidistribution is a rather weak criterion to express the fact that a sequence fills the segment leaving no gaps. (wikipedia.org)
  • generally
  • However, sequence conservation in ncRNAs is generally poor compared to protein-coding sequences, and base pairs that contribute to structure or function are often conserved instead. (wikipedia.org)
  • The sequence is almost never unadorned as shown above, but is generally filled in with intervening chords. (wikipedia.org)
  • Note
  • From text to graphic organizer - A sequence organizer is used to simplify, in note form, events in a sequential order. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, if a descending fifths sequence in C major starts with the note C, the next note will be F, a perfect fifth below the first note. (wikipedia.org)
  • distinction
  • On images of the brain, this sequence has a more pronounced distinction between gray matter (bright) and white matter (darker gray), but with little contrast between brain and CSF. (wikipedia.org)
  • A distinction is made between lawless and lawlike sequences. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • It is often useful to combine this notation with the technique of treating the elements of a sequence as variables. (wikipedia.org)
  • The structure of stages in the toothpick sequence often resemble the T-square fractal, or the arrangement of cells in the Ulam-Warburton cellular automaton. (wikipedia.org)
  • Christopher Mark (2006), Ritornellos and the amplification from melodies to Baroque lyrics are often built from sequences. (wikipedia.org)
  • most of the luminosity is in the arms and not the bulge Although strictly part of the de Vaucouleurs system of classification, the Sd class is often included in the Hubble sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • different
  • citation needed] In coding sequences, the nucleic acid and amino acid sequence may be conserved to different extents, as the degeneracy of the genetic code means that synonymous mutations in a coding sequence do not affect the amino acid sequence of its protein product. (wikipedia.org)
  • order
  • In 2009, Baxter posted a detailed chronology of the Xeelee Sequence explaining the proper chronological reading order of all the novels, novellas, and short stories up to that year. (wikipedia.org)
  • series
  • When students read a text that outlines a story, process or series of events, it can be useful to put the information in a sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • In August 2016, the entire series of all novels and stories (up to that date) was released as one volume in e-book format entitled Xeelee Sequence: The Complete Series. (wikipedia.org)
  • Baxter's Destiny's Children series is part of the Xeelee Sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Xeelee Sequence main novels: Destiny's Children sub-series novels: Collections of short stories and novellas: ^a Winner of the BSFA Award for Best Short Fiction, 2004. (wikipedia.org)
  • The canonical example of a lawless sequence is the series of rolls of a die. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • A highly conserved sequence is one that has remained relatively unchanged far back up the phylogenetic tree, and hence far back in geological time. (wikipedia.org)
  • Over many generations, nucleic acid sequences in the genome of an evolutionary lineage can gradually change over time due to random mutations and deletions. (wikipedia.org)
  • contains
  • A graphic organizer can be used as a teaching tool in two ways: From graphic organizer to text - A completed sequence organizer is used to create a piece of writing based on the information it contains. (wikipedia.org)
  • interval
  • is a sequence contained in the interval [a, b]. (wikipedia.org)
  • of real numbers is said to be equidistributed modulo 1 or uniformly distributed modulo 1 if the sequence of the fractional parts of an, denoted by {an} or by an−⌊an⌋, is equidistributed in the interval [0, (wikipedia.org)
  • major
  • In the third and fourth bars of the "Air" from J.S. Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, the violin part forms a tonal sequence with the notes modified to fit the harmony, while the intervals in the bass line are unchanged, creating a real sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • pattern
  • This sequence does not have any pattern that is easily discernible by eye, unlike the preceding sequence, which is increasing. (wikipedia.org)
  • At least two instances of a sequential pattern-including the original statement-are required to identify a sequence, and the pattern should be based on several melody notes or at least two successive harmonies (chords). (wikipedia.org)
  • The ascending fifths sequence, contrary to the descending fifths sequence, consists of a pattern of ascending fifths (or descending fourths). (wikipedia.org)
  • instead
  • A sequence of the spin echo type must instead wait for the exhaustion of the signal that is formed spontaneously after the application of the excitation impulse before it can produce an echo (free induction decay). (wikipedia.org)
