As the Middle Ages progressed in Italy, Italian cities began to rely mostly on mercenaries to do their fighting rather than the militias that had dominated the early and high medieval period in this region.These would be groups of career soldiers who would be paid a set rate.Mercenaries tended to be effective soldiers, especially in combination with standing forces, but in Italy they came to dominate the armies of the city states.…

If in the following game the previous server also wins a break point it is referred to as breaking back.At least one break of serve is required to win a set.Another, however informal, tennis format is called Canadian doubles.…

For alternative (equivalent) formulations of the definition in terms of a bijective function or a surjective function, see the section Formal definition and properties below.A set is a collection of elements, and may be described in many ways.…

The last fact implies that actually any surjective ring homomorphism satisfies the universal property since the image of such a map is a quotient ring.In group theory, one can consider the action of a group on a set.…

New members had to willingly sign over all of their wealth and goods to the Order and take vows of poverty, chastity, piety, and obedience.Most brothers joined for life, although some were allowed to join for a set period.Sometimes a married man was allowed to join if he had his wife's permission, but he was not allowed to wear the white mantle.…

A set may consist of the three different army units (soldier, cavalry, artillery) or be three of a kind (e.g. all three cards have cavalry pictures).If the player has five cards, the player must trade in a set.…

The range of the function is a set of real numbers.The actual values of the function have no importance.…

Users of Enigma were confident of its security because of the large number of possibilities; it was not then feasible for an adversary to even begin to try a brute force attack.Most of the key was kept constant for a set time period, typically a day.However, a different initial rotor position was used for each message, a concept similar to an initialisation vector in modern cryptography.…

Entire books of etudes have been written to this purpose.The teacher will give the student a set of pieces of slowly increasing difficulty.Besides using pieces as an aid to teaching various elements of playing style, a good teacher will also inspire more intangible qualities such as expressiveness and musicianship.…

Anglican worship originates principally in the reforms of Thomas Cranmer, who aimed to create a set order of service like that of the pre-Reformation church but less complex in its seasonal variety and said in English rather than Latin.This use of a set order of service is not unlike the Catholic tradition.Traditionally the pattern was that laid out in the Book of Common Prayer.…

The primary characteristic of a class is that it contains a set of features.

In mathematics, a well-order relation (or well-ordering) on a set S is a total order on S with the property that every non-empty subset of S has a least element in this ordering.The set S together with the well-order relation is then called a well-ordered set.The hyphen is frequently omitted in contemporary papers, yielding the spellings wellorder, wellordered, and wellordering.…

Infantry doctrine is the concise expression of how infantry forces contribute to campaigns, major operations, battles, and engagements.It is a guide to action, not a set of hard and fast rules.Doctrine provides a very common frame of reference across the military forces, allowing the infantry to function cooperatively in what are now called combined arms operations.…

It was released on the announced date as a two-disc set.

Assuming we can define at least one nonreal complex number, however, a complex number is definable if and only if both its real part and its imaginary part are definable.The definable complex numbers also form a field if they form a set.The related concept of "standard" numbers, which can only be defined within a finite time and space, is used to motivate axiomatic internal set theory, and provide a workable formulation for illimited and infinitesimal number.…

Other types of equipment failure include the standards slipping down or the wind dislodging the bar when no contact was made by the vaulter.Each athlete has a set amount of time in which to make an attempt.The amount of time varies by level of competition and the number of vaulters remaining.…
