(n ) The correctness of aim of the red, green, and blue beams of an RGB color monitor When the beams converge properly, the monitor gives the best-quality color
A contraction of a vector field; the opposite of divergence Convergence in a horizontal wind field indicates that more air is entering a given area than is leaving at that level To compensate for the resulting "excess," vertical motion may result: upward forcing if convergence is at low levels, or downward forcing (subsidence) if convergence is at high levels Upward forcing from low-level convergence increases the potential for thunderstorm development (when other factors, such as instability, are favorable)
the act of converging (coming closer) the approach of an infinite series to a finite limit the occurrence of two or more things coming together
The movement of the price of a futures contract toward the price of the underlying cash commodity At the start, the contract price is higher because of the time value But as the contract nears expiration, the futures price and the cash price converge
In application to binocular functions, refers to the ability to bring both eyes to focus on a singular visual stimulus and to transmit an image perceived as a perceptual unity Convergence implies control in both the horizontal and vertical planes
Shared derived similarities, that are not based on a singular common origin (= homology), but on an independent origin in different taxa The following phenomenons of convergence have been distinguished
The ability to turn the eyes inward to track an object moving toward the body The eyes must be converged any time a person reads or looks at something close If the eyes do not converge correctly, double vision or the suppression of one eye or the other will occur Convergence problems are fatiguing and the amount and efficiency of visual information processed is reduced
a representation of common ground between theories or phenomena; "there was no overlap between their proposals"
the integration of computers, telephones, recording and broadcast technologies in all-digital environments This enables novel uses of data, new services and products as well as faster and more flexible communications
Movement of two eyeballs inward to focus on an object moved closer The nearer the object, the greater is the degree of convergence necessary to maintain single vision
Refers to two different trends: - convergence between the broadcasting and telecommunications sectors Advances in technology make it possible to use different media (cable networks, terrestrial and satellite radio relay systems, computer terminals and television sets) to carry and process all kinds of information and services, including sound, images and data This type of convergence is due to a revolution in technology (digitisation) It has economic and regulatory implications - fixed/mobile convergence Increasingly similar technologies are used and services provided by fixed telephone and mobile telephone systems This type of convergence opens up prospects for operators to propose the same services to all users, regardless of the technology or networks they use
Wind movement that results in a horizontal net inflow of air into a particular region Convergent winds at lower levels are associated with upward motion Contrast with divergence
The tendency for prices of physicals and futures to approach one another, usually during the delivery month Also called a "narrowing of the basis "
The convergence of different ideas, groups, or societies is the process by which they stop being different and become more similar. the need to move towards greater economic convergence divergence. Mathematical property of infinite series, integrals on unbounded regions, and certain sequences of numbers. An infinite series is convergent if the sum of its terms is finite. The series 1 2 + 1 4 + 1 8 + 1 16 + 1 32 + ... sums to 1 and thus is convergent. The harmonic series 1 + 1 2 + 1 3 + 1 4 + 1 5 + ... does not converge. An integral calculated over an interval of infinite width, called an improper integral, describes a region that is unbounded in at least one direction. If such an integral converges, the unbounded region it describes has finite area. A sequence of numbers converges to a particular number when the difference between successive terms becomes arbitrarily small. The sequence 0.9, 0.99, 0.999, etc., converges to 1
The ‘coming together’ of formerly distinct technologies, industries or activities; the most common usage refers to the convergence of the computing, communications and broadcasting sectors in terms of industry structures and technologies as a result of digitalisation
The movement of the cash asset price toward the futures price as the expiration date of the futures contract approaches
The tendency for prices of physical commodities and futures to approach one another, usually during the delivery month
the merging of distinct technologies, industries, or devices into a unified whole (ex AT&T buying out every other company to have a monopole as they did in the 1980s and have succeeded into doing once more after the recent purchase of cingular.)
An evolutionary event which occurs in two independent sequences If the sequences possess two different character states for a particular character, but change results in each of these characters independently acquiring an identical character state, this is said to be a convervence Convergences differ from parallellisms because the ancestral sequences are not the same In parallellisms, the ancestral sequences are the same
{i} assembly, coming together; location and direction of electron rays in a screen (Computers)
(of an algorithm) The algorithm is represented as the point-to-set map, x' in A(x), where there is some selection function to choose x' when A(x) has more than one member Convergence means that the sequence, {x^k}, has a limit point, say x, such that x satisfies certain conditions Ideally, the conditions are that x is an optimal solution, at least locally, but this is often not the definition used in a convergence theorem (For example, in unconstrained optimization, most algorithms converge to a stationary point, which need not be even a local optimum )
(1) The coming together of two or more disparate disciplines or technologies For example, the so-called fax revolution was produced by a convergence of telecommunications technology, optical scanning technology, and printing technology (2) In graphics, convergence refers to how sharply an individual color pixel on a monitor appears Each pixel is composed of three dots -- a red, blue, and green one If the dots are badly misconverged, the pixel will appear blurry All monitors have some convergence errors, but they differ in degree (Source: webopedia com)
Precisely every individual in the population is identical Such convergence is seldom seen in genetic programming using Koza's subtree swapping crossover However, populations often stabilise after a time, in the sense that the best programs all have a common ancestor and their behaviour is very similar (or identical) both to each other and to that of high fitness programs from the previous (and future?) generations Often the term ``convergence'' is loosely used
A term referring to cash and futures prices tending to come together (i e , the basis approaches zero) as the futures contract nears expiration
The ability of both eyes to turn inwards together This enables both eyes to be looking at the exact same point in space This skill is essential to being able to pay adequate attention at near to be able to read Not only is convergence essential to maintaining attention and single vision, it is vital to be able to maintain convergence comfortably for long periods of time For good binocular skills it is also to be able to look further away This is called divergence Sustained ability to make rapid convergence and divergence movements are vital skills for learning See jump convergence
The convergence is a measure of the rate at which air is converging along a horizontal plane Convergence near the surface and divergence aloft can be correlated with upward vertical motion
The coming together and integration of two or more technologies Digital television, computers and telecommunications being combined is an example of convergence (2) The combining and presenting of multimedia into a single delivery system The Internet is an example http: //www cw com/th_03 asp?ID=19_us_01
Convergence refers to the situation in which several services are approaching each other in nature For example the merging of telecommunications, IT and media
Criteria for entering economic and monetary union are: overall price level stability; approximation of long-term interest rates; stable exchange rate; country's budgetary position acceptable with regard to current deficits and debt position (see Discipline in public spending)
The convergence criteria were the five conditions set that countries had to meet if they wanted to take part in full economic and monetary union They were: Inflation - no more than 1 5% above the average inflation rate of the lowest 3 inflation countries in the EU Interest rates - the long-term rate should be no more than 2% above the average of the three countries with the lowest inflation rates Budget deficit - no more than 3% of GDP National debt - no more than 60% of GDP Exchange rates - currency within the normal bands of the ERM with no re-alignments for at least 2 years
Five economic criteria for inclusion in EMU - Inflation Rate, ERM Membership, Long Term Interest Rates, Government Deficit and Debt Stock relative to GDP
The process, made possible by technological innovations in transportation and communication, by which distant places are brought closer together in terms of the time taken to travel (or send messages) between them
Time–space compression (also known as space–time convergence) is a term used to describe processes that seem to accelerate the experience of time and reduce the significance of distance during a given historical moment
