Each secure partition functions as an independent server, increasing system reliability because a fault in one partition does not affect others.
60 QA166 While working with the Theory Group of Microsoft Research in 2003, three interrelated issues were raised to the author: which functions on finite graphs can be represented as partition functions of models from statistical physics, whether the notion of "limit distribution" was applicable to sequences of graphs, and whether results about quasirandom graphs can be generalized to multitype quasirandom graphs.
In a next step we apply five higher-order methods of analysis: (i) The partition function multifractal analysis, (ii) The Rank Ordered Multifractal analysis, (iii) The wave telescope, (iv) the multi-spacecraft methods for anisotropy (v) the discriminating statistics.
The partition function scales with the segment size [epsilon] as (Meneveau et al.
It is found that some of the asymptotic behaviours of the partition function have been forwarded by G.
The number of partitions of n is given by the partition function p(n).
We will also use divalent vertices, and in this case the two edges have to be both in, or both out, and the corresponding weight is 1: [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] The partition function of a given ice model is then defined as the sum over all its states of the product of the weights of the vertices.
[alpha]]) = P([alpha]), where P([alpha]) is the unrestricted partition function.
