Glossary of Biomechanical Terms, Concepts, and Units

Mary M. Rodgers, Peter R. Cavanagh
1984 Physical Therapy  
A lack of formal background during professional preparation may lead to the misuse of some terms because of the relative infancy of biomechanics.  ...  These references are given in the suggested readings so that the flow of the article is not interrupted.  ...  Mathematically, velocity is the first derivative with respect to time of displacement (See 4.4) Acceleration The rate of change of velocity with respect to time, mathematically the second time derivative  ...

Kinetic roughening phenomena, stochastic growth, directed polymers and all that. Aspects of multidisciplinary statistical mechanics

Timothy Halpin-Healy, Yi-Cheng Zhang
1995 Physics reports  
Indeed, some of the finest contemporary minds still consider the problems of sufficient subtlety to merit their time.  ...  stochastic noise, while c is the constant average velocity of the propagating surface.  ...  While the deadlines for its delivery have been repeatedly missed, in compensation we were able to benefit from the considerable knowledge accumulated in the last few years.  ...

-From Children of Dune by Frank Herbert -To my wife, Anna-Marie, for her love, understanding and companionship.  ...  Following several previous calcUlations, we solve the transport equation to determine to what extent these lags are due to time-dependent effects in the modulation.  ...  Figure 2 . 1 : 21 The inferred structure of the heliosphere. Picture adapted from RFigure 2 . 2 : 22 In addition, the plasma flow velocity is assumed to be radial, i.e., V = V(r)er.  ...
