PERTURBATION. This is a technical word which signifies disturbance, or infringement of a right. It is usually applied to the disturbance of pews, or seats in a church. In the ecclesiastical courts actions for these disturbances are technically called "suits for perturbation of seat." 1 Phillim. 323. Vide Pew.

La SONEDE a explique dans un communique publie vendredi a Tunis que cette perturbation est due aux travaux de maintenance sur la conduite principale de distribution situee sur la route de la Marsa (route perturbations, coupure d'eau, distribution, eau potable, Tunis, SONEDEnationale 9).
The analysis we give in sections 3 and 4 proves that the perturbations have a discontinuity which corresponds to zero phase shift and then the string is Polchinski's open string obeying Neumann boundary condition.
The estimation algorithm uses a subroutine to distinguish the controlled perturbations (with a unique duration and amplitude) initiated by another node from variations in the targeted parameters.
Moreover, the nature of simulated trips and slips in the laboratory may differ from perturbations encountered in the community.
These detailed biological models, extending over multiple scales in space and time, will unveil key features of biological systems such as redundancy, modularity and negative feedback that act as sources of robustness against perturbations and internal variability (Dada and Mendes, 2011).
One challenge associated with this new vision has been the assessment of "tipping points" beyond which pathway perturbations invoke a lasting change that could ultimately lead to an adverse effect.
However, in practice, the parameters of the controller are possible to accrue some gain perturbations due to finite word length, the existence of the parameter drift, the round-off errors in numerical computations, or degradations of actuator effectiveness, which has been recognized as the so-called fragility problem of controllers, to name a few, [20-22] and references therein.
where x presents the variable which is perturbed, Tp is the time interval between two perturbations, in the continuation intend to as perturbation period, [DELTA]x is the magnitude of the perturbation subjected to x, in the continuation intend to as perturbation magnitude, and P is the power drawn from the PV panels.
This fact is entirely understandable since realization of one-dimensional instability is impossible under development of multidimensional perturbations in case of the instable flame front.
F] identifying the matrix perturbations with their vector-wise representations.
Cette baisse est due au ralentissement du rythme de l'activite et ce suite aux perturbations survenues au port depuis le mois d'avril et liees essentiellement aux procedures d'accostage et de dechargement des conteneurs.
