So let me express perdurantism’s apparent problem by using some memorably ugly labels, as follows.
On the Persistence of Homogeneous Matter
In order to have a proper line memorization and to avoid a false encoding, a buffer is inserted between the delay line and the memorization line. Therefore, a sufficient high slew rate signal is presented at the input of the latch and thus it decreases the probability to observe a metastable cell.
Development of a TDC to equip a Liquid Xenon PET prototype
The clock tree distributed to the memorization cells has to be perfectly balanced.
Development of a TDC to equip a Liquid Xenon PET prototype
If a close look is taken at the state of an eight elements delay line (Fig. 9), we can see that the position number is determined by the number of the last bit at 1 before the 1 to 0 change in the memorized line state.

Effective Generation of Subjectively Random Binary Sequences
In terms of complexity, we might infer that for accomplishing such an objective more than just memorizing a plain list of facts is involved: because knowledge contemplates several concepts and their relationships.

We wish to study the universal compression of a sequence of length n from one of the sources provided that the decoder has access to (i.e., memorized) a sequence of length m from the other source.

We further assume that M is a memory unit, i.e., capable of memorizing the sequence ym .
Network Compression: Memory-Assisted Universal Coding of Sources with Correlated Parameters
S1 memorized at the decoder at M , what is the achievable universal compression performance on xn at S2 -M path and whether the correlation between xn and ym can be potentially leveraged by the encoder of S2 and the decoder at M in the decoding of xn using ym to reduce the codelength of xn .
Network Compression: Memory-Assisted Universal Coding of Sources with Correlated Parameters
In , , we theoretically derived the gain that is obtained in the universal compression of the new sequence xn from S2 by memorizing (i.e., having access to) ym from S1 at both the decoder (at M ) and the encoder (at S2 ).
