After finding the unknown variables [a.sub.i], [a.sub.R,i] da [a.sub.X,i] it is possible to determine the values of the total resistivity of the Fricke replacement circuit, the active and reactive components of the total resistivity in absolute values as a function of frequency:
where [M.sub.[absolute value of max]] denotes that eigenvalue of M, which has the maximum absolute value (and analogously for [M.sub.[absolute value of min]]); symbol [M.sup.*] denotes deviatoric part of M; absolute values of ISO, CLVD and DC range in interval <0,1>.
Moreover, the absolute values of these ratios (e.g., 8.7, 10.5, 12.2) also have come to be viewed and overvalued as a reserve adequacy gauge, as though someone "knows" what appropriate survival ratios should be.
