In Planck units all the quantities having International System’s dimensions expressible in terms of L , T and M are dimensionless.
A Gr\"{o}enewald Van Hove like formulation of the ordering problems of General Relativity
The proposed hybrid control framework captures internal interactions between the decision making unit and the path planner continuous dynamics of the system, and hence improves the system’s overall reliability.

PPN coordinate system relative to the mean rest-frame of the universe. • p = pressure as measured in a local freely falling frame momentarily comoving with the matter. • Π = internal energy per unit rest mass.
The Confrontation between General Relativity and Experiment
The system has then to re-adjust the position of the beams on the lenslet array that creates the SH pattern on the CCD. • An internal calibration unit is needed to check the WFS alignment in laboratory and at the telescope.
