 State transition system - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
In a state transition system, transitions do not form a function, but a relation between the states, and therefore, there may be zero or more than one transition out of a given state, with the same input.
State transition systems with a finite number of states and transitions can be represented as directed graphs.
Formally, an unlabelled state transition system is a tuple (S, →) where S is a set (of states) and → ⊆ S × S is a binary relation over S (of transitions.) If p,q ∈ S, (p,q) ∈ → is usually written as p → q.

 Introduction to UML 2 State Machine Diagrams
A state represents a stage in the behavior pattern of an object, and like UML activity diagrams it is possible to have initial states and final states.
An initial state, also called a creation state, is the one that an object is in when it is first created, whereas a final state is one in which no transitions lead out of.
Transitions are the result of the invocation of a method that causes an important change in state.

 Building State and Transition Models for CA Hardwood Rangelands
For example, a given rangeland could be described with a greater or a lesser number of states and transitions, depending on the type and goals of management and on the amount of existing knowledge.
The transitions between states may be caused by natural disturbances (e.g., weather, fire, herbivory) or by management actions (e.g., grazing, burning, wood harvest, elimination or introduction of plant species, fertilization).
Spatially explicit models based on state and transition models could be very useful to rank alternartives at the scale of a landscape.

The insight developed through understand the nature of the transition states to surface reactions is the key to ultimately understanding the influences of catalytic surfaces on the kinetics of catalytic processes.
These substituent effects indicate that the α-carbon in the transition state is cationic with respect to the initial state alkyl group and that the reactant has greater charge density on the α-carbon than the transition state.
The interpretation of this effect is that the β-carbon atom in the transition state is cationic with respect to the reactant.

 Viewing the transition state   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
In 1992, the transition state of this benchmark elementary bimolecular chemical reaction was directly studied using a spectroscopic method called photoelectron spectroscopy.
Another method for viewing the transition state of a chemical reaction is made possible using extremely fast laser pulses.
In order to catch the transition state in the process of falling apart, one laser "pump" pulse starts a unimolecular reaction and a second pulse "probes" the reaction as a function of time.

 The Twin Excited State as a Probe for the Transition State in Concerted Unimolecular Reactions: The Semibullvalene ...
The twin state concept is depicted in Figure 1 for a degenerate rearrangement reaction of two mirror image molecules, represented by corresponding VB structures which differ solely by bond shift.
state is the twin state of the transition state for the isomerization reaction of semibullvalene, as the three criteria identified above are fulfilled.
Since a transition from the TS to the twin-excited state is weakly Franck-Condon allowed, the signal may be weak, and the actual lifetime of this state could be shortened by a radiationless process connecting it with the ground state which may smear out the vibrational structure of the transition.

 Definition of a state-and-transition model
The formulation of a state and transition model involves identifying the vegetation states, determining which of the states are linked and describing the transitions.
Although some saplings are present in state VI, there is little gap effect on recruitment at this level of canopy closure (transition time 30-50+ years).
There are some indications that states VI and VIII with their higher levels of shrub cover occur on sites more conducive to shrubs than the majority of sites in this low precipitation zone.

 Cooperative Enterprise
The privatization of state enterprise in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union has focused the attention of the profession on the transition from state to investor-owned private enterprise.
A difficulty with state enterprises is that their costs are not likely to be proportionate to market requirements, so that their profits (AVA-W) are not really proportionate to the capital value of the enterprise.
State farms are somewhat a special case, since it may be best that they be converted, not to corporate cooperatives, but to individual proprietorships through the distribution of land.

 Transition State Chemistry Discovery at LBL   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Using a technique called photofragment spectroscopy, Moore and his research team were able to make the first direct observations of transition state quantum energy levels in a unimolecular reaction -- one involving only one molecule as the reactant -- and deduce the associated molecular motions.
It was found that the rate of the reaction increased in a stepwise manner with increasing energy, as predicted by transition state theory.
Each step corresponds to a vibrational energy level for the transition state: steps were found close to the energies predicted by quantum chemical calculations.

 Modeling a Diels-Alder Transition State using
Macromodel has features which allow the transition states of simple reactions to be modeled, using two types of built-in parameters for the bond lengths for these species using the MM2* force field.
In the case of the Diels-Alder transition state geometries, start with the simplest diene and dienophile complex and then add the substituents on each.
To draw the tether and the substituents you will need to rotate the transition state from part "a" on the screen in such a way that they can be drawn in with the appropriate stereochemistry.

 [No title]
A state capitalist firm is simply a component in a larger bureaucratic structure, with objectives and activities constructed in the context of the goals of the larger bureaucracy.
Using the strict Resnick-Wolff definition of state capitalism, China has already undergone a transition from state capitalism to private capitalism (after having earlier, even if recently, undergone a transition from feudalism to state capitalism in industry and feudalism to ancientism/self-employment and capitalism in agriculture).
Perhaps it was less a deterioration in the performance of these transitioned firms than the development of closer ties between public authorities and the newer private firms that resulted in the performance shift, as the latter were able to secure conditions for prosperity at the expense of the older (formerly state-run) firms.

 Transition State Theory
Transition state theory provides an approach to explain the temperature and concentration dependence of the rate law.
In transition state theory (TST) an activated molecule is formed during the reaction at the transition state between forming products from reactants.
The prime again denotes the fact that the transitional partition function, and hence the overall molecular partition function, is on per unit volume.

 Transition State Theory
In the transition state theory, the mechanism of interaction of reactants is not considered; the important criterion is that colliding molecules must have sufficient energy to overcome a potential energy barrier (the activation energy) to react.
For a bimolecular reaction, a transition state is formed when the two molecules’ old bonds are weakened and new bonds begin to form or the old bonds break first to form the transition state and then the new bonds form after.
The transition state occurs at the maximum of this energy barrier.

This state description should include all the necessary information to capture the system's current state, so that if the system were interrupted and later reset to the state, the system would resume execution as if the interruption had not occured.
Hence the state description would need to record which customers were at each device, how long each execution customer has been in execution, how much remaining service time is required by each executing customer, and several additional parameters that may influence the system's behaviour.
With this state description, it is possible to construct the appropriate state-space diagram.
