- n. the property of being anisotropic; having a different value when measured in different directions
Quantum uncertainty fluctuations in the field coupled with local regions of curvature, where this reheating had some measure of inhomogeneity, or as observed from a central location an anisotropy, that is frozen out in what we observe now.
In a paper published earlier this month in The Astrophysical Journal they confirmed that more cosmic rays seem to come from certain directions-an observation known as anisotropy-in the Earth's southern hemisphere too.
We show that the CuO chains of the orthorhombic lattice are not responsible for this anisotropy, which is therefore an intrinsic property of the CuO2 planes.
You are overlooking something huge, namely the anisotropy of both wood and CF composites.
COBE also had the task of seeking small variations of temperature in different directions (which is what the term 'anisotropy' refers to).
This phenomenon is called "anisotropy" and it has already been observed from the Northern Hemisphere by previous experiments.
"anisotropy," has been seen from the Northern Hemisphere by previous experiments, she says, but its source is still a mystery.
And we found with 11 hours of practice over about a month, IBMT changed the white matter connectivity as measured by fractional anisotropy, the diffusion of water along the pathway ...
Those findings were important, and the only signal we found was a dipole anisotropy.
The intention is to get a sample of some of the fine grained anisotropy from some regions.
