The final resolution or conclusion of a controversy.

In legal use, determination usually implies the conclusion of a dispute or lawsuit by the rendering of a final decision. After consideration of the facts, a determination is generally set forth by a court of justice or other type of formal decision maker, such as the head of an Administrative Agency.

Determination has been used synonymously with adjudication, award, decree, and judgment. A ruling is a judicial determination concerning matters, such as the admissibility of evidence or a judicial or an administrative interpretation of a statute or regulation.

DETERMINATION. The end, the conclusion, of a right or authority; as, the determination of a lease. 1 Com. Dig. Estates by Grant, G 10, 11, and 12.. The determination of an authority is the end of the authority given; the end of the return day of a writ determines the authority of the sheriff; the death of the principal determines the authority of a mere attorney. By determination is also understood the decision or judgment of a court of justice.

(2010) found that the determination coefficients for all morphological traits relative to live body weight traits of Ruditapes philippinarum were greater than 0.85, indicating that the morphological traits measured were the main factors affecting live body weight.
The RMSEC and RMSECV were 0.06 and 0.08; the determination coefficient was 0.99.
Pearson's correlation coefficient (r) and the determination coefficient ([R.sup.2]) were used in order to achieve the relation between productivity and use of pesticides per area.
The semivariograms adjusted to the models are shown in Figure 2, which presented adjustments to the spherical model, presenting determination coefficient ([R.sup.2]) ranging from 0.57 to 0.99, which justifies the aggregate distribution of the variables in the studied area.

The results of the regression can be interpreted so that the determination coefficient for this model is [R.sup.2] = 0.1169, which means very low dependence.
According to the regression model of this study that the determination coefficient ([r.sup.2]) is 0.78.
We made the comparison and the validation of these two models by calculating the determination coefficient (criterion 1), the comparison of residuals (criterion 2), application of AIC criterion (criterion 3) and use of F-test (criterion 4).
When the radius is less than 3500 m, the coefficient of determination for the 30[degrees] opening angle is generally larger than the other two angles, and when the radius is larger than 3500 m, the determination coefficient of the 60[degrees] opening angle is generally larger than the other two angles.
For each regression analysis, the following values were recorded: intercept n, slope m, determination coefficient [R.sup.2], and p values.
