Selecting all events with a much lower truncated muon number of Nµ>105 and zenith angle >50° we still detect >50% of all events — in many cases with very high field strengths.

Even more importantly, tracking of a particle through a bent crystal lattice requires not only a calculation of a particle dynamics in this nonlinear field, but also a generation of random events of scattering on the crystal electrons and nuclei.

Relativity, which says that physical events take longer - meaning that clocks run more slowly - in an intense gravitational field than in one less intense.” Many physicists would argue that such views encapsulate what the theory says - and the theory is undoubtedly right.

The objective of the classification system is to provide caller behaviour metrics that can assist contact centres in identifying areas of improvement within IVR applications. The developed system comprises of field classifiers that are trained on data extracted from IVR log event files.
Fuzzy Inference Systems Optimization
Instances when a caller response is longer than the allocated timeout period of the field are represented by the maximum speech timeout inputs. A maximum of 3 maximum speech timeout events per f ield are accommodated in the IVR application considered.
