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.

The PWM waveform lookup table programmed in the microcontroller will be an estimate of the original high resolution PWM waveform.
In computer science, a lookup table is an array that replaces runtime computation with a simpler array indexing operation.
Analogously to the CPU implementation, values of the [g.sub.xz] standing wave modes are computed once and the result is stored as the lookup table in a global memory on the GPU device.
During the memory filling phase, both streams are used to supply the system with the needed lookup tables, and during the classification phase, the Reference Generator process reads the headers of the packet provided by InputStream:.
After 30 milliseconds the self-monitor will send the status of that DIS as "Not Responding" to the self-allocator and the self-allocator updates this information in the Lookup Table.
This method of measuring the slew rate (FIGURE 1) must be determined on each edge of each signal at each valid receiver, and the variance from nominal then becomes an index to find the delay-derating value in a lookup table (FIGURE 2).
This Z value is used with a lookup table to extrapolate a map distance between two genes (Griffiths et al., 2000; Immer, 1930; Macguire, 2005).
This also applies to a lookup table. Using a key in the algorithm as for HMAC means you can't build the table yourself even if the algorithm is known.
Some of the tips that we are allowed to publish are: Always keep the humidity of the press room at 50 to 70 percent; you will improve your color consistency if you do two lookup table generations instead of one; stick an absorbent mat onto the bottom of the ITM hood--this helps catch imaging oil drips.
The FPGA provides 15600 four-input Lookup Table (LUT) equivalents, corresponding to approximately 124800 gates in the CAP MP Block.
An integrated parts lookup table is among the features added to the Power Column 2's controls.
The integrated parts lookup table enables the user to search for a part number which sends the column to retrieve the tray where the part is stored, eliminating the need for the user to know the tray number.
