Usage

In literature:

The stability was considered sufficient, and the height of flight could be altered by the horizontal rudder.

But to a far greater extent it is due to the fact that its predominant lines are horizontal, the line of repose and stability.

In science:

In general, the vertical stripe type pattern is favored by the Coulomb repulsion along the solid bonds in Fig. 15, while that along the dotted bonds stabilizes the diagonal and horizontal patterns.
Theoretical Aspects of Charge Ordering in Molecular Conductors
As for the α-type structure adopting the values of tij for α-ET2 I3 , MF calculations118 show that a horizontal stripe solution (Fig. 16(b)) is more stable than the other solutions in the Vc & Vp region, in contrast to the vertical stripe type solution found by Kino and Fukuyama116 stabilized in the small Vij region.

Note that although the squares have continuous translational degrees of freedom in the horizontal direction, this is not in evidence in the vertical direction because of the stability condition: the squares inevitably appear at discrete horizontal “levels”.

We now repeat the procedure above, applying p′ to G1 2 until the sequence stabilizes at a set G2 , then checking if the result is a horizontal confusion for (H1 , V1 ), and filling a hole of p′ if it is not.
