  Dense Gas Dynamics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The phrase dense gas regime refers to the aforementioned thermodynamic region and dense gas flow indicates all or part of a flow field with thermodynamic states in the dense gas regime.
For the dense gas cases the density is scaled relative to the value at the critical point.
Note that the triple point is much closer to the wedge for the dense gas case and that the reflected shock is attached to the front of the wedge.

 Density (disambiguation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A partial order on a set S is said to be dense (or dense-in-itself) if, for all x and y in S for which x < y, there is a z in S such that x < z < y.
In case the order is a linear order, then B is dense in A in the present sense if and only if B is dense in the order topology on A.
In forcing, a subset D of a forcing notion (P, ≤) is called dense in P if for any p in P there is d in D with d≤p.

 STUDY OF DENSE FOG AT THE SALT LAKE CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND ITS IMPACTS TO AVIATION
This valley is particularly susceptible to dense fog during the winter when strong and persistent temperature inversions in association with the surrounding mountains, act as horizontal barriers to trap cold and moist air near the surface.
This increase in dense fog occurrences at the tower and not at the surface may be due to the increased height of the tower and the movement of the tower further north.
Dense fog was reported at the tower and the surface 54 percent of the time, and 23 percent at the surface only.

 DWDM - Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing
Dense Wave Division Multiplexing, the technology by which the frequencies of light carried on a single optical fibre are subdivided into discrete wavelengths allowing for the greater transmission of data.
Dense Wave Division Multiplexing is a technique by which many separate signals are converted into slightly different wavelengths of 'colours' of light for transmission along a single cable and separate back into individual signals at the other end.
Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing.  An even more powerful and efficient type of WDM capable of increasing the capacity of a fiber strand even further.  It is currently the preferred method for fiber transmission as it greatly reduces the amount of fiber required by a network.  See also WDM.

 Dense And Nowhere Dense in ZhurnalWiki
Rational numbers are "dense" because no matter how tiny a neighborhood you pick around any number, there are still an infinite number of fractions that lie in that neighborhood.
Simultaneously, the rationals are "nowhere dense" because however tiny a zone you pick around a rational number, there are infinitely many non-rational numbers (irrationals, numbers not expressible as fractions) in that zone too.
A set E is said to be dense in a set X if the closure of E is X. For example, the set of rational numbers is dense in the set of real numbers.

 National Cancer Institute - "Dose Dense" Chemo Improves Breast Cancer Survival
While previous research has evaluated the use of various forms of "dose dense" chemotherapy, this is the first major controlled study to show a clear survival benefit for women with node-positive breast cancer.
After three years, 92 percent of patients on the dose dense therapy were alive, compared to 90 percent of those on the conventionally administered regimens.
Side effects were found to be no more severe among patients on the dose dense regimens than among those on the conventional treatments, and patients on the dose dense regimens suffered fewer cases of neutropenia.

To see why humid air is less dense than dry air, we need to turn to one of the laws of nature the Italian physicist Amadeo Avogadro discovered in the early 1800s.
In simple terms, he found that a fixed volume of gas, say one cubic meter, at the same temperature and pressure, would always have the same number of molecules no matter what gas is in the container.
More dense, or "heavier" air will slow down objects moving through it more because the object has to, in effect, shove aside more or heavier molecules.

Due to the dense space gradient surrounding the particle A, the micro particles formed in the spatial gradation gain momentum towards A (as more mass/energy is taken up in that direction) giving a gravitational equivalent for A and indicating equivalence between gradations of dense space and gravitational pull as stated by Siepmann (1).
In model B a particle of dense space spins and is in equilibrium with surrounding space due to the Bernoulli effect in which fast moving surfaces take on a low density appearance relative to the surrounding medium.
Since dense space has been shown to exist (1) and observation retains supremacy over the imaginary in science it is logical to assume that investigations into dense space theory should now be regarded as a more useful path of inquiry.

 Dense   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
As an example, the set of rational numbers is a dense subset of the real numbers.
Note that the first notion of "dense" depends on the surrounding space, while the second notion is completely internal to the ordered set.
The rationals in 0,1 for instance are dense as an ordered set and they are dense in the space 0,1 but they are not dense in the real numbers.

 Refraction of Light: as it passes from less dense to more dense mediums
When light passes from a less dense to a more dense substance, (for example passing from air into water), the light is refracted (or bent) towards the normal.
Upon exiting the water, the light is bent away from the normal as it passes from water (more dense) and into air (less dense).
The light would leave the flashlight, bend at the surface of the water, reflect off the mirror at the bottom of the glass and move towards the surface, where it would bend outward at the same angle it bent in on the way in.

 Configuring IP Multicast Routing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In this case, the interface is treated as dense mode if the group is in dense mode; the interface is treated in sparse mode if the group is in sparse mode.
If you configure sparse-dense mode, the idea of sparseness or denseness is applied to the group on the router, and the network manager should apply the same concept throughout the network.
Sparse mode and dense mode are properties of a group, as opposed to an interface.

Note that when the pulse reaches the end of the medium, a portion of its energy is transmitted into the more dense medium (in the form of a transmitted pulse), a portion of its energy remains in the less dense medium (in the form of a reflected pulse).
This is always the case for boundary situations in which a pulse in a less dense medium reflects off the boundary with a more dense medium.
Since wave speeds and wavelengths in strings are always greatest in a least dense medium, it would be expected that there is a decrease in wave speed and wavelength as the pulse crosses the boundary.

 Mammograms: Can they find cancer in dense breasts? - MayoClinic.com
Dense breasts contain more dense tissues — glands and ligaments — and less fat.
For this reason, on a mammogram, a tumor can be difficult to detect in dense breasts because it looks a lot like the dense tissue around it.
If you have dense breasts and your doctor detects a breast lump, he or she may recommend further evaluation of the lump even if a mammogram is interpreted as normal.

 Succinctness is Power
We should be clear that we are talking about the succinctness of languages, not of individual programs.
One reason it's hard to imagine a language being too succinct is that if there were some excessively compact way to phrase something, there would probably also be a longer way.
For example, if you felt Lisp programs using a lot of macros or higher-order functions were too dense, you could, if you preferred, write code that was isomorphic to Pascal.
