  • Interesting fact: The term "the whole 9 yards" came from WWII fighter pilots in thePacific. When arming their airplanes on the ground, the .50 calibermachine gunammo belts measured exactly 27 feet, before being loaded into thefuselage. If the pilots fired all their ammo at a target, it got "the whole 9yards."
    • loaded An obsolete variant of loded.
    • loaded Coated with external growths, as shells; clogged up: said of oysters.

Obtained from the average search length, given the processing capacity of each node and the load on the network due to queries. • The maximum load that can be injected to the network without overloading it.
Performance of Random Walks in One-Hop Replication Networks
The model works quite well because inter-hour loads variations are relatively predictable allowing reliable centralized scheduling, and intra-hour load fluctuations are typically small and can be followed efficiently by rapid response regulation reserves.
Message Passing for Integrating and Assessing Renewable Generation in a Redundant Power Grid
The models are able to represent important physical characteristics of realistic loadredistribution mechanisms, e.g., that the load increments after a failure depend on the load of the failing element and that they may be distributed non-uniformly among the remaining elements.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
The load redistribution after a failure is no longer assumed to be uniform and the induced load increments may depend on the load of the failing element.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
Whereas we assume that the critical loads of the various elements are independent of each other, we allow for possible correlations between the initial and critical loads of a particular element.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
In other words: The load increments are proportional to the failed load Lf , but with random proportionality factors ∆.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
The main features of a load redistribution of the form (1) can already be understood by considering the extreme cases of a uniform, global load redistribution and a purely local one.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
Obviously, it can happen that the post-failure loads of a number N (1) f ≥ 1 of elements are above their respective critical loads.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
L′ conditional probability density that a failure induced by a failing load Lf occurs with a load L′ f .
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
Given the joint distribution of initial and critical loads, as well as the distribution of the load-redistribution factors, this quantity can be readily calculated.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
Finally, we compare our results with those of a simple branching process model, e.g., Refs. [3, 11], where the induced load increments are independent of the load of the failing element.
Stochastic Load-Redistribution Model for Cascading Failure Propagation
Within our approach, a corresponding model (with stochastic load redistribution) is obtained if we assume that the initial loads are all identical and that the critical loads of the individual elements are randomly distributed. A detailed study of such models will be presented in a separate publication .
