Much research has concentrated on reducing the coherence of a learned dictionaries.
The limited-memory Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno (L-BFGS) algorithm was used to cooptimized the coherence between atoms and the performance of sparse representation [18].
Computer simulations have shown that quantum coherences work in photosynthetic antennae to prevent excitations from getting trapped on their way to the reaction center, where the conversion to chemical energy begins.
Quantum beats are the signature of quantum coherence, arising from the interference between the different energetic states in the superposition, similar to the beating heard when two instruments that are slightly out of tune with each other try to play the same note," Hayes explained.
Namely we use the integration of the series of the atmospheric (NCEP/NCAR, ERA40) and oceanic (ECCO, OMCT) excitation functions and search for the coherence between the integration and the celestial pole offsets obtained from VLBI observations
We used this series for integration and determination of the coherence, despite the fact that it presents very low diurnal and sub-diurnal fluctuations (Vondrak and Ron, 2009).
In their ongoing study, they compared these measurements with the coherence (the synchronization of different sets of cortical sites) between the two hemispheres of the brain.
What was striking--even shocking was that the signals the Princeton group found looked like spin coherences, but they couldn't be spin coherences.
That could cause their nuclear spins to be linked via a quantum mechanical phenomenon known as spin coupling or coherence.
In this approach I answer these questions by conserving the operational coherences of the observer as a living system.
It is in relation to them where we see the coherences of existence in general and of our own existence in particular.
But despite calling into question the adequacy of the standard categories by which exegesis like Origen's is routinely condemned (allegorical, ahistorical, spiritualizing), despite opening up new categories by which Origen's exegetical practice might be more properly understood (strategies of reading, the spiritual fashioning of the reader, the coherence of spiritual reality), and despite offering numerous nuanced and appreciative readings of Origen's exegesis, Young finally endorses a reconceived version of the Antiochene vs.
The distinction lies in a different perception of how the text related to that to which it was taken to refer: what I call ikonic exegesis requires a mirroring of the supposed deeper meaning in the text taken as a coherent whole, whereas allegory involves using words as symbols or tokens, arbitrarily referring to other realities by application of a code, and so destroying the narrative, or surface, coherence of the text.
According to Polanyi, artificial coherences are connected with semantic meanings whereas natural coherences are related to natural meanings.
In contrast to this, there are natural meanings which are the results of tacit processes of indication and they can be starting points to produce artificial coherences or semantic meanings.
