A book containing references, alphabetically arranged, to the contents of a series or collection of documents or volumes; or a section (normally at the end) of a single volume or set of volumes containing such references to its contents.

Statistical indexes are also used to track or measure changes in the economy (for example, the Consumer Price Index) and movement in stock markets (for example, Standard & Poor's Index). Such indexes are usually keyed to a base year, month, or other period of comparison.

In mortgage financing, the term is used to determine adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) interest rates after the discount period ends. Common indexes for ARMs are one-year Treasury Securities and the national average cost of funds to savings and loan associations.

After a 30-minute rest, the force of MVC, VA level, twitch force, and fatigue indexes were evaluated.
Group mean [+ or -] standard deviation for maximum voluntary contraction (MVC), General Fatigue Index (FI), voluntary activation level (VA), Central Fatigue Index (CFI), twitch force, Peripheral Fatigue Index (PFI), and Modified Fatigue Impact Scale (MFIS) before and after 8 weeks of surface functional electrical stimulation (FES) training.
The first verification of the mechanical fatigue index (FI) was determined by the use of the equation: FI = ([P.sub.maximum] - [P.sub.minimum]) x 100 / [P.sub.peak].

Fatigue index (%) = 100% - [MVIT.sub.post20]/[MVIT.sub.prs] x 100%
Statistical analysis for Mean Power Output, Maximum Power Output, Minimum Power Output and Fatigue Index for scores expressed in relative to body mass showed significant differences between slow music and no music conditions, fast music and no music conditions, but no significant differences between slow and fast music conditions.
A variable dynamometric fatigue index was used to ensure that the fatigue induction occurred similarly in all groups.
Fatigue index indicates the decrease in power from the highest to the lowest anaerobic power output.
The percentage of decrease in power or fatigue index (FI), is the difference between the instantaneously 1-s highest and lowest powers divided by the highest power.
The aim of this study was to compare variables related to asymmetry, peak torque, and fatigue index in the Traditional strength training method and the Kaatsu strength training method, which is a blood flow restriction training strategy.
However, they didn't find a significant music effect in the mean power ([P.sub.mean]) and the fatigue index. In physically active men, Chtourou et al [13] found that music during warm-up enhanced the [P.sub.peak] and [P.sub.mean] during the same exercise.
