  Convergent boundary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In plate tectonics, a convergent boundary – also known as a convergent plate boundary, active margin, compression boundary or a destructive boundary – is a region of the Earth's crust where two tectonic plates are in motion toward one another.
A subduction zone forms at a convergent plate boundary when one or both of the tectonic plates is composed of oceanic crust.
Occasionally plate convergent boundaries are involved with complex faulting and can form transform plate boundaries, where some component of strike-slip faulting is involved at a zig-zag section of the plate boundary.

 Convergent & Discriminant Validity
Convergent and discriminant validity are both considered subcategories or subtypes of construct validity.
In general we want convergent correlations to be as high as possible and discriminant ones to be as low as possible, but there is no hard and fast rule.
There are two sets or blocks of convergent coefficients (in green), one 3x3 block for the self esteem intercorrelations and one 3x3 block for the locus of control correlations.

 Convergent Evolution: Examples from Earth History
Whether examples of convergence owe to the inward pull of form (developmental biology) or to the push of Earth itself (ecology; "life rediscovering the same synergies," as Peter Corning speaks of it), we can count on particular forms and lifeways to develop — time and again.
When convergence is the rule, you can rerun the tape of life as often as you like and the outcome will be much the same.
Convergence means that life is not only predictable at a basic level; it also has a direction.

 Convergent Evolution   (Site not responding. Last check: )
That said, it must also be recognized that the principle of convergent evolution as used in the AAT ignores a vital element of that principle.
Convergence in evolution (unrelated living things sharing similar traits which they don't share with a common ancestor) is due to a similarity in function in these traits.
There are classic examples which are often cited, for instance arctic mammals and birds, which often have white coats of fur or feathers, and in the case of mammals, smaller ears to conserve heat.

 Calculus II (Math 2414) - Series & Sequences - Absolute Convergence   (Site not responding. Last check: )
It is this fact that makes absolute convergence a “stronger” type of convergence.  Series that are absolutely convergent are guaranteed to be convergent.  However, series that are convergent may or may not be absolutely convergent.
Therefore, this series is not absolutely convergent.  It is however conditionally convergent since the series itself does converge.
This series is convergent by the p-series test and so the series is absolute convergent.  Note that this does say as well that it’s a convergent series.

 (ATN) Convergent Combination Therapy
The idea of convergent combination therapy is to find particular combinations of drugs, all targeted against the reverse transcriptase enzyme, such that there is no combination of mutations which could convey resistance to all the drugs without also making the reverse transcriptase unable to function.
Therefore the three-drug convergent combination therapy should still work against the virus tested in Kent, since no known combination of mutations leaves it able to reproduce and also resistant to all three of the drugs.
To keep perspective on the potentially important but still unproven idea of convergent therapy, it is important to remember that most drugs and therapies which work well in the laboratory do not turn out to be useful in people.

 Convergent Margins and Subduction
Elsewhere plate boundaries of three types exist: divergent or spreading (e.g., mid-oceanic ridges), convergent (e.g., subduction zones), and strike-slip (e.g., the San Andreas fault zone in California or oceanic transform faults).
Convergent margin volcanism produces the 'ring of fire' around the Pacific ocean, and is typified by the Cascade volcanic arc in the Pacific Northwest US.
Convergent margins are among the world's most seismogenic zones, and are characterized by progressively deeper earthquakes as one proceeds from trench to back-arc region - at most convergent margins, these earthquake foci define a dipping plane (the Wadati-Benioff zone, or WBZ) which corresponds to a fault zone between subducting oceanic lithosphere and the overriding plate.
