     2. This contract is formed by the consent of the parties, but delivery is indispensable; for, without it, it mere agreement. Dig. 31, 77, 4; Code, 4, 64, 3.
     3. Permutation differs from sale in this, that in the former a delivery of the articles sold must be made, while in the latter it is unnecessary. It agrees with the contract of sale, however, in the following particulars: 1. That he to whom the delivery is made acquires the right or faculty of prescribing. Dig. 41, 3, 4, 17. 2. That the contracting parties are bound to guaranty to each other the title of the things delivered. Code, 4, 64, 1. 3. That they are bound to take back the things delivered, when they have latent defects which they have concealed. Dig. 21, 1, 63. See Aso & Man. Inst. B. 2, t. 16, c. 1; Nutation; Transfer.

Table 1 Results of permutational analysis of variance (PERMANOVA) with relative abundance (MaxNo) data from our sur veys of 4 species- Opakapaka (Pristipoinoides filamentosus), Kalekale (P.
Permutational analysis of variance (PERMANOVA [Anderson 2001]) was used to partition both multivariate and univariate variability, because this approach allows multivariate testing for interactions, and uses permutations to calculate P values.
One way of doing this might be to show the extent to which the permutational possibilities of some well-known palindrome remain largely unexplored and unelaborated despite its long-standing familiarity.
Along with the gridlocked skies of Boetti's "Aerei" (Airplanes), 1978-89; eye-popping, tongue-twisting word squares like Senza titolo (Mese di marzo dell'anno mille nove 100 ottanta nove) (Untitled [The Month of March of the Year One Thousand Nine 100 and Highty-Nine]), 1989; and the permutational kilims that make up Alternando da uno a cento e viceversa (Alternating from One to a Hundred and Vice Versa), 1993, these works waged a sensory assault on the spectator that became rather exhausting over the course of such a comprehensive exhibition.
Permutational multivariate analysis of variance (PERMANOVA) was used to test for differences in isotopic signatures among years, regions, and sites within regions.
Part develops a cyclic, permutational approach to musical time in several ways: the solo percussion sections unfold a four-beat pattern in all rotational orderings within an ever tapering repetition scheme, while the sections for two tenors combine the pitches of a pentachord both in a palindrome and in an exhaustive imitative reordering.
Advancing this demythification of color as psychic and bodily space, Richter initiated the aleatory dissemination and permutational multiplication of color in noncompositional arrangements in 1966, with 192 Colors, a canvas that effaces any reference to the commercial color chart in favor of a mechanically ordered grid of square color chips.
Permutational multivariate ANOVA was conducted using PERMANOVA v1.
Serial organization, he maintains, is merely a permutational order that corresponds to the "compositional grammar" but is not necessarily matched by the elaborational "listening grammar.
It is, we often say, the permutational nature of the photographs to which Andre was drawn (the original installation, at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York, consisted of eight works of varying configurations, each composed of two tiers of sixty cast sand-lime bricks).
The very fact of the permutational structure of this work, the fact that it could be installed as a huge mural-size square displaying all 4,900 color squares at once or could be broken down into a variety of smaller square paintings of as few as 25 squares, performed yet another manifest oppositional operation with respect to the static and hieratic cathedral window in its claim to a definitive transhistorical perpetuity.
