This is the decomposability property whereby the 6n + 2 equations reduce to two independent subsystems of 2n + 1 and n + 1 equations each.
Such changes in extent of decomposition and decomposability across the POC, HOC, and ROC fractions are consistent with the progressive decrease in decomposition rate constants assigned to these fractions when they are incorporated into carbon cycling models.
13]C CP/MAS NMR spectra for plant material and light fractions obtained from the 2 different land uses were similar, indicating that this approach may be of limited value for differentiating between materials with different C/N ratios, and hence different decomposability.
This provides strong evidence that the frequency of the base form is involved in facilitating decomposability.
The same genetic mechanisms that may determine quality of forage for moose also determine quality and decomposability of litter.
Rayon's product advantages are similar to those of cotton and include skin tolerance, physiological safety, decomposability, good moisture absorbency and simple finishing.
The authors describe how these initiatives are too narrow and how early care and education programs reflect many characteristics of Chaotic systems, including: 1) decomposability, 2) nonlinearity / nonpredictability, 3) sensitivity to initial conditions, 4) recursive symmetries between scales, 5) feedback mechanisms, and 6) the existence of attractors.
Among these tenets are: 1) decomposability, 2) nonlinearity/nonpredictability, 3) sensitivity to initial conditions, 4) recursive symmetries between scales (also called self-similarity), 5) feedback mechanisms, and 6) the existence of attractors (Hayles, 1990; VanderVen, 1998).
A nontrivial DRD in a relation is both a sufficient and a necessary condition for its decomposability.
On the basis of experimental measures in heathlands, Berendse (1994) developed a model suggesting that the species replacements that might initiate a succession were triggered by the decomposability of litter.

They start from the axioms of the utility theory and assume that the set of criteria satisfies the decomposability condition, i.
7) This decomposability property is very useful in that it identifies the contribution of the delay from each subgroup (an airline or an airport) to the overall delay of the industry.
