  • Not that the difference between the peak and the trough if effectively wasted capital — capital that must be paid by increasing the average price which, of course, scales like the time-averaged demand.

  • Additionally, I think the case is that calculated data is time-averaged and spatially-correlated in order to recover the mean-flow state.

  • Even when macroscopic observables such as temperature or the winning lottery numbers are indeed some sort of time-averaged summation of “micro interactions”, the laws describing those interactions are well understood, even though the number of interactions may be too large to follow one by one.

  • If you really want to estimate a time-averaged relationship, a more efficient way to do it than throwing out 4/5 or whatever of the observations would be to simply regress the unaveraged dependent variable on the averaged independent variable.

  • A less restrictive variant of the WEC is the Average Weak Energy Condition (AWEC), which requires that when time-averaged along some arbitrary world-line through all time, the net energy must be greater than or equal to zero, so that any time period when the energy is negative must be compensated by a period of positive energy.

  • In Study 045, REYATAZ/ritonavir and lopinavir/ritonavir were similar for the primary efficacy measure of time-averaged difference in change from baseline in HIV RNA.

  • "Samples from a series of such time-averaged fossil assemblages are thus very different from the snapshots that come from repeatedly sampling a living community," said Tomašových, a postdoctoral scientist in Geophysical Sciences at UChicago.

  • On the positive side, Tomašových and Kidwell note that although many fossil assemblages will be too time-averaged to discriminate variability generated by biological processes operating at small spatial scales (approximately a meter) - such as competition or predation-prey interactions-they excel at capturing the larger picture, such as the identities and relative abundances of species in the regional diversity pool that local communities draw upon.

  • The amount of bias in the feedbacks diagnosed from time-averaged model output depends upon the size of the non-feedback flux variability relative to the surface temperature variability, as well as the sign and magnitude of the specified (true) feedback.

  • Traditionally, biochemists and cell biologists examined the time-averaged behavior of thousands or millions of cells in order to understand how the information contained in genes is used to make proteins.
