- plural form of
*parameter*

- She set the
**parameters**and waited for the approval screen. - Yet she was the one who had established the gender
**parameters**by telling him she wanted him to wear the pants. - To reduce these figures to a common standard, so that the volumes shall contain equal numbers of molecules, the notion of molecular volumes is introduced, the arbitrary values of the crystallographic axes (a, b, c) being replaced by the topic
**parameters**' (x, ?i, w), which are such that, combined with the axial angles, they enclose volumes which contain equal numbers of molecules. - Again, if a chain pass over a perfectly smooth peg, the catenaries in which it hangs on the two sides, though usually of different
**parameters**, wifi have the same directrix, since by (10) y is the same for both at the peg. - Taking P, P' as the corresponding points in an (a, a') correspondence on a curve of deficiency D, and supposing that when P is given the corresponding points P' are found as the intersections of the curve by a curve o containing the co-ordinates of P as
**parameters**, and having with the given curve k intersections at the point P, then the number of united points is a = a+a' +2kD; and more generally, if the curve 0 intersect the given curve in a set of points P' each p times, a set of points Q' each q times, &c., in such manner that the points (P,P') the points (P, Q') &c., are pairs of points corresponding to each other according to distinct laws; then if (P, P') are points having an (a, a') correspondence with a number=a of united points, (P, Q') points having a (0,0') correspondence with a number =b of united points, and so on, the theorem is that we have p(a-a-a')+q(b-(3-(')+ ...
