Upper-bound limit: If the position of a particle is sampled at a rate [delta]x, wave numbers up to [k.
However, a boundary integral equation based on Green's representation theorem or based on a layer approach will lack uniqueness for certain wave numbers.
It is evident from inequality (22) that the critical wave number is increased or decreased, depending on whether the arbitrary radiative heat-loss function is an increasing or decreasing function of the density.
Here, while there are broad similarities in the spectra especially at wave numbers <1150 [cm.
This DIA has been found to be quite successful in describing the essential features of a developing wave spectrum using the fact that the interactions between closely neighbouring wave numbers reproduce the principal features of the nonlinear transfer.
A transfer-matrix approach for estimating the characteristic impedance and wave numbers of limp and rigid porous materials.
The corrected absorption (after base line correction) at the specific wave number was measured.
In the other hand, transforming positively and negatively correlated free-air wave number components according to the selected cut off values yielded the terrain-correlated free air gravity anomalies (TCFAGA) in Figure 4.
This analysis, however, neglected surface tension effects and therefore could not predict a large wave number cut-off.
The optimized geometries, conformational stabilities, infrared intensities, Raman Activities, depolarization ratios and vibrational wave number have been obtained from MP2/6-31G(d) ab initio calculations.
Validation comprised wave number positions and absorbances of known IR bands.
A change in peak intensity corresponding to assigned wave number for a functional group indicates a change in molecular structure.
5 micrometers to 50 micrometers, or in the more commonly used wave number notation 4000 to 200 cm-1.
Because the data exist in a spatial(3) rather than temporal domain, instead of power by frequency variables, the power spectrum is a function of the number of cycles at each lag (the wave number, k).
