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.

Ti[O.sub.2] has the advantages of nontoxicity, environmental compatibility, high refractive index, and low price; therefore, we choose Ti[O.sub.2] as the coating material.
Figure 3 presents the refractive index of the unit cell for different ring dimensions (1.5 mm to 2.6 mm).
Preparation of transparent soil should ensure that the transparent substance is immersed in the refractive index matching liquid, which is also involved in the process of producing transparent media in the experiment of the Christiansen effect [23].
Figure 9 presents the MEPOSS content as a function of the refractive index at 589 nm ([n.sub.D]), which mainly uses a general refractive index.
In Pressure sensor, the applying pressure has a linear relationship with the refractive index of the proposed structure.
