Note that the part of the locus off the real axis is close to joining with the real axis, in which case break points would occur.
In this locus, determining the points where the locus crosses the real axis is rather important, since there is only a small set of values for K for which the system is stable.
Note the part of the locus that is to the right of the imaginary axis.

 Setting Locus Straight on Print On Demand
Locus is important as an institution that attempts to keep track of what is published by whom and when.
We also hope that Locus looks to its own wisdom as far as deciding what books to include in their "count." Locus has already defined what it considers to be a book they are willing to officially "list": The book must have been physically received by Locus.
Locus may wish to add: "The book must not be self-published unless the merit of the book is so obviously above the typically self-published book as to make an exception." (If Locus is still befuddled by what is and is not self-published, we believe we (among others) might help determine what is self-published.

Locus officials believe the algorithm — implemented as a C++ program performing up to 2 trillion calculations per second (see "The Algorithm," right) — could shave off years from conventional drug discovery cycles, replacing structural screening methods with a computationally intensive approach.
Locus' position typifies a dilemma many bioinformatics companies now face: Either protect critical IT and drug discovery resources or risk credibility problems in the scientific community.
"Locus is trying to keep the algorithm secret at this point because patents on algorithms are difficult to enforce," says Sandor Vajda, a professor in the department of biomedical engineering at Boston University.

 Root Locus: Rationale   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The root locus is a graphical procedure for determining the poles of a closed-loop system given the poles and zeros of a forward-loop system.
Graphically, the locus is the set of paths in the complex plane traced by the closed-loop poles as the root locus gain is varied from zero to infinity.
The equation defines where the poles will be located for any value of the root locus gain, K. In other words, it defines the characteristics of the system behavior for various values of controller gain.

The notion of a locus applies also to solid geometry.
Here the locus of the points satisfying a single (or onefold) condition is a surface; the locus of the points satisfying two conditions (or a twofold c-on(lition) is a curve in space, which is in general a twisted ctirve or curve of double curvature.

 MH_locus
By segregation analysis, Hanset and Michaux demonstrated that double-muscling is due to the segregation of a recessive allele (mh) at an autosomal locus.
To map the hypothetical mh locus, an experimental backcross pedigree was generated by mating (HF x BBB) cows back to BBB sires.
The Sart Tilmanis pedigree is therefore informative for the segregation of the mh locus and for the roan locus.

 An Introduction To Root Locus Techniques
The root locus is a widely used tool for design of closed loop systems, and it has the virtue of being a good design tool for continuous time systems (where you work in the s-plane) and for sampled (computer controlled) systems (where you work in the z-plane).
A root locus is the locus of the closed loop poles (roots of the denominator polynomial) plotted as the open loop gain constant changes.
The concept of a root locus sounds simple enough, but the problem is that closed loop poles can exhibit many strange and wonderful perambulations in the s-plane when the system is even a little bit complex.
