In two cases, the hysteroscope is carried along the endometrium line under the guidance of abdominal ultrasonography in order to do blunt dissection to make the uterine cavity come back to normal form.
In the absence of resonances the simplified Hamiltonian is called Birkhoff normal form and, otherwise, Birkhoff-Gustavson normal form, which may contain combinations of angles arising from resonances.
Since the critical Lyapunov coefficient [l.sub.1] never becomes zero, the system undergoes solely a codimension 1 Hopf bifurcation, for any critical triplet of the active parameters (hence, in Appendix B, we only refer (after a general inspection) to the features of the third-order normal form of the planar equation).
Semi-discrete finite difference schemes for the nonlinear Cauchy problems of the normal form ...
The elements [a.sub.1], [a.sub.2], ..., [a.sub.r] are called invariant factors of A and the diagonal matrix SA is called the Smith normal form of matrix A (see [1], Chapter 15).
The new result is the first sign of super-conducting bismuth in its normal form.
Alternatively, the plan can distribute a lump sum that satisfies the rule with respect to that payment, while the remaining portion also satisfies a minimum requirement where that portion (expressed as the normal form of benefit at normal retirement age) may not be less than the excess of (1) the participant's total accrued benefit over (2) the annuity payable in that form that is actuarially equivalent to the lump sum payment, determined using the applicable interest rate and mortality table.
"Under this alternative rule, the portion of the participant's accrued benefit, expressed in the normal form of benefit under the plan and commencing at normal retirement age (or at the current date, if later), that is not settled by the single-sum payment must be no less than the excess of: (1) The participant's total accrued benefit expressed in that form; over (2) the annuity payable in that form that is actuarially equivalent to the single-sum payment, determined using the applicable interest rate and the applicable mortality table.
AS ONE WORKS THROUGH the normal forms, be it a journey to the placid shores of third normal, or the more arid climes of Boyce-Codd normal form, or even the cloudy peaks of fourth normal and beyond--and before one starts thinking about normalizing the design--the database designer has covered a lot of ground work already.
For example, consider the type of normal form classification, each type of normal form consists of rules which are framed in the decision tree.
Any normal sword which is (R/S)* -related to a given sword [[sigma].sup.S] is said to be a normal form of [[sigma].sup.S].
