Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Medical, Financial, Encyclopedia.


Value, measure, or degree; a charge, payment, or price determined through the application of a mathematical formula or based upon a scale or standard.

For example, an interest rate is determined by the ratio between the principal and interest.

Rate is also used synonymously with tax.

For the deterministic models, we explored the occurrence of long-term cycles by plotting regions of values of the intrinsic rates of increase [r.sub.y] and [r.sub.z] that produce tori [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2 OMITTED].
Most importantly, again the intrinsic rate of increase was not statistically significant for any of the traits in either treatment (P [greater than] 0.11) and five of the six coefficients were positive, opposite that expected if a cost existed.
Nitrogen affected the intrinsic rate of increase ([r.sub.m]), finite rate of increase ([lambda]), doubling time (DT), and generation time ([T.sub.G]) of M.
For each plant, Md and d were calculated, using the method of (Birch 1948) rm = 0.738 (log e Md) / d, the mean intrinsic rate of increase (rm) for each plant was calculated, where Md is the total number of progeny produced by [P1] the mother of F1, (d) is the time taken by F1 aphid from its birth till the production of its 1st offspring.
The population had a weekly increase of 46% [finite rate of increase ([lambda]) = 5.46], and the intrinsic rate of increase (rm) was 1.69.

Number of significant second-order models per 1000 time-series simulations for the Ricker model under 18 combinations of the parameters, r and [Psi], using two analyses (r = the intrinsic rate of population increase; [Psi] = the autoregressive parameter of the exogenous factor).
Based on these data, the intrinsic rate of natural increase ([r.sub.m]), was calculated by iteratively solving the equation (Birch 1948):
