The myosin head steps on actin monomers on a protofilamentt during single ATP hydrolysis as sketched in (c) and the step movement are explained by biased Brownian movement under a potential generated by the interaction with actin filament (see text) (d).
The statistical analysis methodology uses a stochastic process for the purpose of deal with the results of tests and will check the ability to model the continued deterioration of the bearings before overtaking the danger threshold because from it , bearings can be deteriorate at any time, if you want to model a phenomenon of degradation by a continuous process trajectory we chose the Brownian movement that allowed to define a model of predicted reliability therefore provide a good prediction of failures from test data, this model should also be able to help in the planning of predictive maintenance to prevent unexpected, All this provides a strong motivation for the use of the model for predicting failure.
Some "external power" equally affecting alpha-activity, Brownian movement, and fluctuations of photons flow seems unbelievable.
You click on the red one and out scrambles the word 'portfolio'--which you notice is repeated in a row across the bottom before the word zooms out at you and the screen is changed to some monochrome spherical blobs of different sizes doing a dreamy Brownian movement around the screen.
DTI detects the diffusion, or Brownian movement, of water protons within and between individual cells and yields measures of the magnitude and predominant orientation of this movement.

To return to the Brownian movements of Mikka: even purists would have to agree that, despite the double transfer, even Brownian movement (in the sense of Xenakis's instrumental music) has autonomy as a compositional method.
Because expansion of covered area over time is approximately circular for all species, Brownian movement or diffusion is sufficient to characterize movement at large scales (hundreds of meters).
