Despite a second-half siege on the hosts' goal, Sunderland could not grab an equaliser following Gardner 's first-half strike which halved the deficit and they have now recorded just two wins in their last 22 Barclays Premier League fixtures.
Soccer-Last- gasp equaliser saves Boca from defeat at River.
Substitute Almen Abdi came close to equalising for the hosts when he hit the post, before Robbie Brady's free-kick doubled Hull 's lead.

In science:

These detection slabs are made up of a string of Active Sensor Units (ASU) which consist of a PCB with embedded FE ASICs, mounted onto the silicon sensors. A ∼ 500µm copper plate attached to the PCB layer equalises the temperature along the length of the slab.
Next Generation CALICE Electromagnetic Calorimeter
The quotient map determines a map in I from Z  X Ñ Y to ¯Z  X Ñ Y , which co-equalises any two maps of I into its then the quotient.
A categorical approach to internality
As in Turner & Stone (2001) we tested the interaction between the radiation and the gas to check that the temperatures of the gas and the radiation equalise when Tg 6= Tr initially. A gas was set up so that there was no initial velocity, with a density 3 and E = 1012 ergs cm−3 .
Smoothed particle hydrodynamics with radiative transfer in the flux-limited diffusion approximation
In addition the relative signal delays are equalised.
The COMPASS Experiment at CERN
All scintillator fibre pairs were characterised with a radioactive source and sorted to equalise the module light output. A silicon compound provides the optical contact between the bundle of fibres and the PMT.

The scale is histogram equalisation to see subtle effects: influence of enlighted beams on the background of dark channels.

M C = ̺M ⊗ idC − idM ⊗ ∆ is the coaction equalising map.
Galois-Type Extensions and Equivariant Projectivity
We recall that a category K has arbitrary (finite) limits if and only if it has equalisers and arbitrary (finite) products, [6, p.113].
Quillen model categories without equalisers or coequalisers
Hence, in contrast to our old preliminary combinations we do NOT equalise the FSI systematic anymore.
A Combination of Preliminary Electroweak Measurements and Constraints on the Standard Model
We start by using the equalising method in an initial refinement to transform P into some Q with an equitable partition of the vertex set.
A hypergraph regularity method for generalised Turan problems
Then we repeatedly apply the same refinement procedure as above followed by the equalising method: at each stage we obtain a new system Q from the original procedure and then refine it to some equitable Q′ .

In the presence of dagger equalisers, zero-epis are ordinary epis.
Quantum Logic in Dagger Kernel Categories
This fact is not really used, but is included because it gives a better understanding of the situation. A dagger equaliser category is a dagger category that has equalisers which are dagger monic.
Quantum Logic in Dagger Kernel Categories
Lemma 10 In a dagger equaliser category D where every dagger mono is a kernel, zero-epis in D are ordinary epis.
