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.

A Fractal Dimension of greater than 1.5, or a Hurst exponent between 0 and 0.5 indicates an anti-persistent behavior in which an increasing trend will be followed by a decreasing one, which is referred to as mean reverting.
For discrete system (maps or fixed point iterations) [x.sub.n] = f([x.sub.n-1]) and for an orbit starting with [x.sub.0], the Lyapunov exponent can be defined as follows:
The strength of the anti-persistence behaviour increases as the value of the exponent H approaches zero.
In the sample of the stock market indices, the Hurst exponents are distinct from the RW criterion of 0.5 for most periods.

Lyapunov exponent method is used to analyze the stability affected by different manipulator movements and then the Newton-Euler recursive method is used to quantify the coupling between the manipulator and the quadrotor, after which coupling compensation is considered in the controller design.
