 Collinear antenna array - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In telecommunication, a collinear antenna array is an array of dipole antennas mounted in such a manner that every element of each antenna is in an extension, with respect to its long axis, of its counterparts in the other antennas in the array.
Note: A collinear array is usually mounted vertically, in order to increase overall gain and directivity in the horizontal direction.
When stacking dipole antennas in such a fashion, doubling their number will, with proper phasing, produce a 3 dB increase in directive gain.

The parallel postulate: Given a line L and a point P not on L, there exists exactly one line through P that is parallel to L.
The last axiom ensures that the geometry is not empty, while the first two specify the nature of the geometry.
A permutation of the Fano plane's seven points that carries collinear points (points on the same line) to collinear points is called a "symmetry" of the plane.

 Directional Harmonic Theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
A different pattern is observed in figure 2 B which shows a collinear grouping of dots in columns, each dot being connected by an illusory grouping contour that extends out from that dot in opposite directions, as shown schematically to the right of the figure.
This percept is considerably less salient than the collinear and orthogonal grouping percepts, and is complicated by the fact that it is not entirely clear whether the grouping lines connect adjacent line endings directly, as suggested schematically to the right in the figure, or whether diagonal rows of line segments form intersecting diagonal "streets", i.e.
the dots are perceived to be in a collinear alignment.

 Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Collinear Polymer Nanoparticle Collisions: Reaction and Scattering   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Collinear collisions of polyethylene nanoparticles are studied, with a particular emphasis on the transition between sticking and reactive scattering trajectories.
The former are characterized by collisions where the two polymer particles form a particle dimer, the latter by collisions resulting in the gross change of particle structure, such as particle fragmentation or transfer of polymer chains from one particle to another.
It is observed that in the collinear case there are no scattering trajectories where the particles undergo nearly elastic collisions and rebound with small energy change.

 Home-brew Compact 6dBi Collinear Antenna
A variation of the coax collinear is constructed from brass rod and brass tubing, but is still just as fiddly to construct.
I was particularly intrigued when a friend pointed out a much simpler collinear, consisting of just a length of copper wire appropriately bent, as detailed here, with a claimed gain of about 6dBi.
When building my first collinear using this design, I made the loops in a similar way to those seen on many commercial antennas which have multi-loop coils, with the wire above and below the coil being centrally located with regards to the loop.

 Collinearity
The problem described in the Prolog is collinearity, where variables are so highly correlated that it is impossible to come up with reliable estimates of their individual regression coefficients.
Collinearity does not affect the ability of a regression equation to predict the response.
Collinearity (or multicollinearity or ill-conditioning) occurs when independent variables are so highly correlated that it becomes difficult or impossible to distinguish their individual influences on the response variable.

 Consistency of Multi-year gapped DSC Residuals with Collinear Altimetry
Since there is no current collinear altimetry extending into the 1980's we can only verify the consistency of our results by checking with 1990's data.
We chose Ers1/Ers2 collinear data because it was more convenient in terms of the DSCs available but more important because the addition of Ers2 altimetry added another degree of independence to the consistency test.
Aside from the different media corrections involved in Ers1, Ers2 and T/P the collinear differences (Ers2-Ers1) here should involve no geopotential signals, should be a fair transfer of average sealevel between 1995/96 and 1992/93 and thus the agreement says our DSC residuals are also compatible with real sealevel differences.

If only 4 points are collinear, then the repeated line is no longer a possibility, and the second line of the pair can be any line through the 5th point.
If there are 3, but no more, collinear points, the pair of lines containing the set is uniquely determined - the line containing the three collinear points and the line determined by the other two points.
The condition that P, Q and R are collinear, using the determinant method, is that c(b-a) + a(d(b-a)) - dc(b-a) -a(d(1-a)+c(b-1)) = 0, which simplifies to ad(b+c-1) -bc(a+d-1) = 0.

 Journal of Vision - Collinear facilitation is largely due to uncertainty reduction, by Verghese, Petrov, & McKee   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Starting with Polat and Sagi (1993), several studies have shown that the presence of collinear flankers improves the detection of a central Gabor patch.
We also used an adaptive procedure to measure the slope of the psychometric function to determine whether the slopes were considerably lower in the presence of cues that reduced uncertainty, as predicted by signal detection theory.
More importantly, the slopes of the psychometric function are much shallower in the presence of the circle or the collinear flankers, indicating that the improved thresholds in these conditions are largely due to significant reductions in uncertainty.

 Xah: Introduction to Real Projective Plane
Each of A,B,C are collinear with one of its sides, meaning each of A,B,C must lie on one of its side, and thus A,B,C are in the same plane as P1,Q1,R1.
Four collinear points A,B,C,D, are said to form a harmonic set if there is a quadrangle of which two opoosite sides pass through A and two other opposite sides through B, while the remaining sides pass through C and D, respectively.
A quadrangle with collinear diagonal points would constitute a configuration of seven points and seven lines such that every two of the points are joined by a line containing a third.

 Antenna Comparison Testing
Over the past several months, I'd constructed a number of antennas, including some biquads, an 8-element collinear omni, and a cantenna, and Marcus had recently constructed some 8-slot 180-degree waveguide antennas using cheap downpipe.
The collinear was constructed using 8 elements of CNT-400 coax, as per the details at wireless.gumph.org, with the dimensions appropriately adjusted to suit the velocity factor of CNT-400 coax.
For horizontal polarisation, the waveguides are vertical, the biquad is vertical, the collinear is horizontal, the cantenna feed element is horizontal, and the Conifer dish is vertical.

We also used an adaptive procedure to measure the slope of the psychometric function to determine whether the slopes were considerably lower in the presence of location cues or flanking Gabors, as predicted by signal detection theory when uncertainty is reduced.
As observed previously, the presence of collinear flankers improved detection thresholds by a factor of two.
The slopes of the psychometric functions were much shallower in the presence of these location cues or the collinear flankers compared to the target-alone condition.

 Plato's Cave: A New Gestalt Model   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
When two such edges are aligned in a collinear configuration, their diffusing fields of activation interact spatially, resulting in a positive feedback which enhances the illusory boundary along the smooth curve joining the inducers as shown schematically below.
A careful analysis of the behavior of the illusory contour in these and other figures reveals certain underlying laws of non-collinear completion which offer clues as to the mechanism by which such completion is subserved.
This model is not complete as it stands, because there are two components to the percept, a collinear percept of an edge, and a surface percept of the occluding triangle, which even has a different surface brightness than the white page that it occludes.

 Quantum Transition State Theory for the Collinear H + H2 Reaction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The recently formulated quantum transition state theory (QTST) in which the quantum projection operator is approximated by its parabolic barrier limit and the symmetrized thermal flux is evaluated numerically exactly, is applied to the collinear hydrogen exchange reaction.
The results are found to bound the exact results from above for temperatures ranging from T = 200 K to T = 1000 K. The QTST rate is almost exact at high temperature and is a factor of 3.7 greater than the exact rate at T = 200 K, where there is extensive tunneling.
Contour plots of the quantum transition state theory reactive flux reveal that the theory accounts well for the "corner cutting" observed in the collinear hydrogen exchange reaction at low temperatures.
