To have hard measure


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • To have hard measure to have harsh treatment meted out to one; to be harshly or oppressively dealt with.
    • ***


In literature:

It is hard to say what violent measures he might have resorted to, had not La Zambinella come on the stage.
"Sarrasine" by Honore de Balzac
I have heard, it seems to me, that you were once driven to very hard measures against corruption.
"Democracy An American Novel" by Henry Adams
I hardly thought you had courage sufficient to have taken such decided measures, after keeping on terms with the man so long.
"Peveril of the Peak" by Sir Walter Scott
I do not wish to whine or to whimper, but I cannot help feeling that I have had hard measure dealt me in this world.
"The Mystery of Cloomber" by Arthur Conan Doyle
The middle classes are apt to receive hard measure; they have few friends and many critics.

The Africans have had hard measures meted out to them in the world's history!

The distances were just as hard to measure, and why Forrester had the feeling, he couldn't have said, but it did feel larger.

But it was hard to find out what policy or measures it would have preferred.

But one must have a hard nature to attempt such harsh measures with that sweet old lady.
"The Old Countess; or, The Two Proposals" by Ann S. Stephens
Opinion is divided on the subject, and the measure of success can hardly be said to have been yet determined.

But it was hard to find out what policy or measures it would have preferred.

In news:

Most of the proposals have died or never got off the ground, though Florida passed a measure reducing severance taxes to offset the higher cost of new technology needed to extract the hard-to-get oil remaining in those fields.
Comparison of A2 to other tool steel s with respect to hardness Original Question:We are a small machine shop and have some A2 tool steel measuring 1/8 thick by.
But only 35 percent have mechanisms in place to measure cloud ROI, as opposed to 45 percent that did not, with the other 20 percent being unsure, Harding said.

In science:

However, this corresponds to the case where the matrices EN, DN of the spherical integral have a random spectrum submitted to a smooth polynomial potential and it is not clear how to apply such technology to the hard constraint case where the spectral measures of DN, EN converge to a prescribed limit.
Large deviations and stochastic calculus for large random matrices
But it is not hard to see that for any measure µ with compact support, µ ⊞ p, if it has a density with respect to Lebesgue measure for many choices of laws p, is likely to have holes in its density unless R xdp(x) = +∞.
Large deviations and stochastic calculus for large random matrices
Combining these measurements with measurements from Cherenkov telescopes shows that several of these sources have unusual hard spectra consistent with E−2, where in one case the spectrum seems to extend up to 100 TeV without indication of a cut-off.
Prospects for identifying the sources of the Galactic cosmic rays with IceCube
The weighted mean of what are often considered to be the best 11 available measurements is h(D/H)p i = (2.6 ± 0.1) × 10−5, but it is hard to assess the significance of this mean value when it is likely that systematic errors and biases may have been overlooked in at least some earlier analyses.
A new, precise measurement of the primordial abundance of Deuterium
The final conversion to an ionic plasma seems equally inevitable because a jet must have an outer radius and it seems very hard to prevent some measure of entrainment of the surrounding plasma along its length, even if it is protected by a cocoon of backflowing plasma [Laing, Simkin].
Particles and Fields in Radio Galaxies: A Summary
Finally, we point out that we have restricted ourselves to projective measurements, also known as hard measurements.
Experimental Quantum Computation with Nuclear Spins in Liquid Solution
However (a) this discussion is really concentrating on significantly relativistic jets, and (b) the smallest angles to the line of sight will have the largest ratios of proper motions and fluxes between the approaching and receding sides of the jet, making the measurements increasingly hard to make.
Uses and limitations of relativistic jet proper motions: lessons from galactic microquasars
It is hard to believe that these could not benefit from the advances in understanding of inclusive semileptonic decays of heavy mesons, which have yielded a 1 − 2% measurement of Vcb .
Conference Summary
It would hardly be surprising if this correction thus results in an error by a few hundredths of a magnitude, in the sense that on Holtzman’s short exposures, too little light in the wings would have been measured compared to one with no CTE effects.
Cepheid Distances to SNe Ia Host Galaxies based on a Revised Photometric Zero-Point of the HST-WFPC2 and New P-L Relations and Metallicity Corrections
CLEO and CDF, DØ, Belle, and BaBar have been working hard on these measurements, and comparison with lattice predictions, but I will continue to confine myself to strong interactions.
Challenges in Hadron Physics
It is not hard to see that one can choose countably many pairwise disjoint measurable subsets of [0, 1] such that all of them have positive measure in every nonempty subinterval of [0, 1].
Reconstructing geometric objects from the measures of their intersections with test sets
Which is fine, but there seems to be a sense in which this three-step computation simulates two copies of (A then B). If (A then B) is somehow a FCC, I’d expect it to have the measure associated with two implementations, not just one. So I’d need another rule to get that information, which is not too hard to find.
The Many Computations Interpretation (MCI) of Quantum Mechanics
HERA measurements have driven many efforts to quantify the onset of nonlinear effects in hard scattering at high energy.
Implications of HERA measurements for LHC
It is not too hard to check that if such a sequence exists, then the first conclusion of the lemma follows; we omit the tedious details, noting only that since κ is integrable, for any subsets Xn of [0, 1]2 with measure tending to 0 we have RXn κ → 0.
The cut metric, random graphs, and branching processes
This confirms that the initial production of hard probes follows the expected scaling of the production rate from p–p to AA by the number of nucleon-nucleon collisions. Z bosons have been measured in Pb–Pb collisions by ATLAS and CMS via their decay into µ+µ− .
