The renowned physiologist, E. F. Weber, possessed this power, and has described the mechanism of the phenomenon.

Lastly, the phenomenon called induction may be mechanically conceived.

It is a purely mechanical phenomenon!

This seems to be dependent on purely mechanical causes, and is not a reflex vasomotor phenomenon.

This led to the generative method: a generative explanation of an observed social phenomenon consists of a description of the external (environmental and social) and internal (behavioural) mechanisms generating them (Epstein 2008).
Therefore localization, especially in the Aubry-Andr´e model as well, is essentially a wave phenomenon and dephasing can be identified as a general mechanism of wave packet spreading.

As a last example of the usefulness of the RG method for quantum mechanical problems, we shall now illustrate its application to the phenomenon of quantum parametric resonance.

The physical interpretation of this behaviour of f (t) is that the phenomenon of signature change occurs as a quantum mechanical tunneling effect.

This phenomenon has been proposed as a possible mechanism for gamma-ray burst generation .
