Nevertheless, we comply with the objective of the article: showing that relaxing additivity parsimoniously can significantly improve the ability of the structural model to fit the data.
In section 2, it argues that while the Generalized Halfer Principle is compatible with Countable Additivity (CA), the Generalized Thirder Principle (GTP) is not.
Arago-Biot relation are derived strictly for volume additivity
Yager's ranking technique [11] is a robust ranking technique which satisfies compensation, linearity, and additivity properties and provides results which are consistent with human intuition.
It follows from the additivity of the Euler number that the index j is additive in its first argument, too.

2005) found that L-PP and LCB-PP blends could follow the semi-log additivity rule blends up to 50% of LCB-PP.
Theoretically it is a simple process of substitution, but due to non ideal inks and substrates, various physical and optical deviations such as additivity failure, light scatter, boundary effects, have influence on the final result.
The equivalence of both descriptions with respect to the exchanges is guaranteed by the additivity of the exchanges of the subsystems (see Fig.
Additivity implies that the generalized TG satisfies Equation 1.
Martin and his team include the analysis of the validity of reciprocity and additivity laws of polymer degradation, specific models linking field and laboratory exposure environments, designing and building a novel laboratory exposure device (called the NIST SPHERE) that essentially removes all known sources of experimental error from exposures, and instrumenting and validating models for characterizing field exposure environments in near real-time and in the same way that these environments are characterized in the laboratory.
Although the concept of additivity denotes that the whole equals the sum of the parts, that does not apply to living systems, which are always greater than the sum of their components--just as the joint force working as an integrated whole is more effective than its parts if they worked independently.
