addition

a title following a person's name, the most common still in use being Esquire. Such a title can be claimed by none and assumed by anyone. The mysterious-sounding additions of mystery were in fact of occupation, like painter or printer.

ADDITION. Whatever is added to a man's name by way of title, as additions of estate, mystery, or place. 10 Went. Plead. 871; Salk. 6; 2 Lord Ray. 988; :1 WUS. 244, 5.
     2. Additions of an estate or quality are esquire, gentleman, and the like; these titles can however be claimed by none, and may be assumed by any one. In Nash v. Battershy (2 Lord Ray. 986 6 Mod. 80,) the plaintiff declared with the addition of gentleman. The defendant pleaded in abatement that the plaintiff was no gentleman. The plaintiff demurred, and it was held ill; for, said the court, it amounts to a confession that the plaintiff is no gentleman, and then not the person named in the count. He should have replied that he is a gentleman.
     3. Additions of mystery are such as scrivener, painter, printer, manufacturer, &c.
     4. Additions of places are descriptions by the place of residence, as A. B. of Philadelphia and the like. See Bac. Ab. b. t.; Doct. Pl. 71; 2 Vin. Abr. 77; 1 Lilly's Reg. 39; 1 Metc. R. 151.
     5. At common law there was no need of addition in any case, 2 Lord Ray. 988; it was, required only by Stat. 1 H. 5. c. 5, in cases where process of outlawry lies. In all other cases it is only a description of the person, and common reputation is sufficient. 2 Lord Ray. 849. No addition is necessary in a Homine Replegiando. 2 Lord Ray. 987; Salk. 5; 1 Wils. 244, 6; 6 Rep. 67.

which holds whatever the arbitrary vector [U.sub.+] might be; indeed the last addend is anyway null.
It should also be noted that compounds of AF and CF have rather large dipole moments since organic addends bearing ionic groups are located at one hemisphere of the fullerene cage.
2 and we will show that the respective addends for [PHI] und [PSI] are identical.
In the second addend in (15) the derivative can be commuted with the integrals since there is no other dependence on x except in P*, which is also extracted from the surface integral
(b) Similarly, all elements in every column, r, r = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 contain an addend [a.sub.r].
This claim assumes that the addends and sum do not exceed the range of integer representation, which is -2,147,483,648 to -2,147,483,647 for the default 4-byte signed integer.
As in the standard system, this addend may be either positive or negative.
The first three addends are nonpositive, the last addend is strictly negative, and all of the subtrahends are strictly positive.
For [gamma] = 1, use [beta] exp[{E[ln(u')]}.sup.1-[sigma])] instead of the second addend inside the braces.
One of the girls raised her hand and said, "Put it next to the last dead-end"--not addend.
The payoff is q - 1 (as shown in the first addend) if the true state is guilty (so that the sum is over k = 1, 2, 3) but someone votes to acquit (with probability as expressed in 1 - [theta]).
In most cases, the extremes of the resulting case are computed using the corners of the addend fans, and that is precisely where the spurious results lie in the resulting fan of an addition.
