Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
  • Interesting fact: There are more than 500 varieties of banana in the world: The most common kinds are Dwarf Cavendish, Valery, and Williams Hybrid bananas. Other types of bananas include Apple and a small red banana called the Red Jamaica. A large type of banana called the plantain is hard and starchy and is almost eaten as a cooked vegetable. The Cavendish is the most common variety of bananas now imported to the United States. The Cavendish is a shorter, stubbier plant than earlier varieties. It was developed to resist plant diseases, insects and windstorms better than its predecessors. The Cavendish fruit is of medium size, has a creamier, smooth texture, and a thinner peel than earlier varieties.

In poetry:

Gatineau Point
A HALF-BREED, slim, and sallow of face,
Alphonse lies full length on his raft,
The hardy son of a hybrid race.
"From 'Down the River'" by Susie Frances Harrison
That upon this sun-baked blistered place
He sleeps, with his hand on the burning haft,
A Metis–slim and sallow of face,
The hardy son of a hybrid race!
"From 'Down the River'" by Susie Frances Harrison

A rib, a femur, or a thigh
Is but a dislocated sign
Of something hybrid, half and half
Betwixt a crocodile and calf--
Maybe a porcupine.
"The Antiquarian" by Hattie Howard

The disordered system is simulated by applying the cluster hybrid Monte Carlo update algorithm and re-weighting techniques.
Critical behavior of the spin-3/2 Blume-Capel model on a random two-dimensional lattice
U ∗ To achieve the desired accuracy of the data in reasonable computer time we applied the single-cluster hybrid algorithm to update the spins and furthermore made extensively use of the re-weighting technique .

We have employed the hybrid algorithm where we included n Wolff clusters (here n = 5) intercalated by one Metropolis single-spin flip sweep.

An upper limit of 16% (at 95% c.l.) is derived for the photon fraction in cosmic rays with energies greater than 1019 eV, based on observations of the depth of shower maximum performed with the hybrid detector of the Pierre Auger Observatory.
An upper limit to the photon fraction in cosmic rays above 10^19 eV from the Pierre Auger Observatory
For the present analysis, we selected hybrid events, i.e. showers observed both with (one or more) surface tanks and telescopes.
An upper limit to the photon fraction in cosmic rays above 10^19 eV from the Pierre Auger Observatory
Even when only one tank is triggered, the angular accuracy improves from ≥ 2◦ for observation with one telescope alone to ∼ 0.6◦ for hybrid detection [10,29], thus reducing significantly the corresponding uncertainty in the reconstruction of Xmax .
An upper limit to the photon fraction in cosmic rays above 10^19 eV from the Pierre Auger Observatory
In the current analysis, data from the surface array are used only to achieve a high precision of reconstructed shower geometry in hybrid events. A single tank was sufficient for this.
An upper limit to the photon fraction in cosmic rays above 10^19 eV from the Pierre Auger Observatory
For this and the other hybrid events with array reconstruction, the observed risetime does not agree well with the predictions for primary photons, supporting the conclusion that a photon origin of the observed events is not favored.
An upper limit to the photon fraction in cosmic rays above 10^19 eV from the Pierre Auger Observatory
The number of hybrid events will considerably increase over the next years, and much lower primary photon fractions can be tested.
An upper limit to the photon fraction in cosmic rays above 10^19 eV from the Pierre Auger Observatory
The sensitivity of the hybrid analysis might be further improved in the future by combining different shower observables measured in the same event, such as depth of shower maximum, risetime and curvature.
An upper limit to the photon fraction in cosmic rays above 10^19 eV from the Pierre Auger Observatory
If only surface detector data is used and hybrid detection is not required then the event statistics are increased by about an order of magnitude.
