• This also means they do not have a real, that is scalar, square.
• This can be either a scalar value or a more complex type.
• Scalar functions take a single value, perform an operation and return a single value.
• It is these scalar-like properties which give rise to its name.
• Since these methods are completely new, they also exist in scalar versions.
• Further, these properties are required to hold under any extension of scalars.
• We see that while the scalar field remains the same, the vector field now looks different.
• With some care the scalar potential can be extended to include free currents as well.
• This paper is also remarkable for the development of the idea of the scalar potential.
• In physics, scalar fields often describe the potential energy associated with a particular force.
• For example, a vector space comes with an associated field of scalar numbers.
• Topological scalar features are very useful, because unlike other measures, they are always available.
• This gives no phase information, and so gives similar data to a scalar network analyzer.
• When the scalar field is the complex numbers, it is called a complex vector space.
• Frequently, one has only a single scalar time series measurement from a system known to have more than one degree of freedom.
• A scalar holds a single value, such as a string, number, or reference to any other type.
• These fields are the subject of scalar field theory.
• For scalar values, once it has been assigned, the value of the final variable cannot change.
• Then the scalars of that vector space will be the elements of the associated field.
• Also it must be possible to declare a constant of any data type, not just the scalar types.
