And was now into one of his quieter moods.
"Rid of His Engine" by Alexander Anderson
Oh! but my heart beats faster—and a gush that was nearly tears:
Clatter of hammers on iron! and Australian Engineers!
Goods from Australian workshops—proud to the world at last
(And I see, in a flash from the future, Australian guns go past).
"That Great Waiting Silence" by Henry Lawson

Study engineering at a good college.

In science:

Theorem 8 is a technical reason that engineers can choose any unbiased base to do data transformation, theorem 9 suggest that not all spectra can look good, and theorem 10 makes sure that the worst case won’t happen when whole MUB spectra are considered.
On the Information of the Second Moments Between Random Variables Using Mutually Unbiased Bases
Ben-Shahar and Zucker pursue these ideas of “good continuation” of the texture flow from a more engineering viewpoint in and in from the viewpoint of differential geometry as beautifully described in the book by Petitot and in some of his earlier papers .
Hyperbolic planforms in relation to visual edges and textures perception
Finally, epitaxial samples are also desirable in this case to achieve a good and uniform matching of electronic bands, for engineering the effects and also provide simple cases for their fundamental understanding.

Secondly a good quantitative knowledge of gluon and q ¯q distributions represents ‘engineering’ input into many other physics studies in hadronic collisions.

The good search engines therefore make a local catalog not only of the contents of web pages, but also of which ones link to which others.

It should be noted that the Study II design cost was based on a significant amount of engineering input to ensure design feasibility and establish a good cost basis.

Physicists and chemists, theoreticians and experimentalists, engineers and philosophers, all would find at least one good reaso n to be interested in these systems.
Quantum nanomagnets and nuclear spins: an overview
For PSTN the call duration probability distribution was well known due to extensive experimental research. For many decades the exponential distribution was assumed a good enough approximation for engineering purposes.
LACK - a VoIP Steganographic Method
The arrangement is not good at all for cavities used as optical frequency references since the degeneracy is never perfect in practice; even if R1 = R2 = L is engineered perfectly, slight mirror ellipticity break even the degeneracies between transverse mode groups (e.g.
Single barium ion spectroscopy: light shifts, hyperfine structure, and progress on an optical frequency standard and atomic parity violation
Good software engineering requires such independent tests for helping validate that computer codes produce correct results (of course, such validations do not obviate careful, structured programming, but are instead complementary).
Statistical tests for whether a given set of independent, identically distributed draws does not come from a specified probability density
The test case management's functionality can be extended successively. Not only can it be used more precisely but add itional functionality can be added. It is a good idea to include support for requirements engineering. Tasks can be derived from requirements and test cases can be linked to them.
Improving the Technical Aspects of Software Testing in Enterprises
The problem of testing whether a null-hypothesis theoretical probability distribution is compatible with the empirical probability distribution of a sample of observations is known as goodness-of-fit (GoF) testing and is ubiquitous in all fields of science and engineering.
