As per the contract, Electrical Geodesics will be supplying and supporting customers of ElMindA who buy the BNA analysis system with its GES 400 dense array EEG systems on pre-determined terms.
The geodesics AB and A'B' are equal and the angles BAC and B'A'C' are equal because of the reflection.
Thus, these aspects can be processed to extract local features by geodesics connection one by one according to the sequence sorted by the number of areas.
We say that X is a geodesic metric space if for every x, y [member of] X there exists a geodesic joining x and y; we denote by [x, y] any of such geodesics (since we do not require uniqueness of geodesics, this notation is ambiguous, but convenient as well).
The result is a new class of map projections based on great circle arcs (the geodesics of the sphere) mapping to lines (the geodesics of the plane).

Then one obtains a well-defined surface area enclosed by the path generated by the evolution of the system plus the geodesic closure.
Sethian and Ron Kimmel, now at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel, described in the July 21, 1998 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES how to use this method to compute the shortest paths, called geodesics, from point to point across hilly terrain and other computer-generated landscapes.

We proved that these manifolds are complete and have null curvature, with explicit geodesics.
The emergence of an Extra Force term in the reduction process and the possibility to recover the masses of particles, allow to reinterpret the Equivalence Principle as a dynamical consequence which naturally "selects" geodesics from metric structure and vice-versa the metric structure from the geodesics.
