Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n hilt That part of a sword, dagger, or similar weapon which affords a grasp for the hand, and usually a protection for it as well. The part grasped is called the grip, into which the tang of the blade is driven, or which consists of two separate pieces secured to the tang on both sides. The pommel is the projecting ball, disk, or similar appurtenance, which prevents the hand from slipping from the grip and sometimes serves to counterbalance the blade. The guard is a cross-guard formed of two quillons, or a knuckle-bow, or a basket-hilt, or a combination of these different forms; sometimes also there are two shells or coquilles, one on either side of the hilt, and sometimes there is a kind of inverted bowl or cup of steel surrounding the heel of the blade, and called the cup-guard. (See the above terms, and sword.) Formerly often in the plural, with reference to its combined parts.

And down on their steel it ringing clashed;
Then back he reeled with a bladeless hilt,
His honour full, but his life—blood spilt.

Shows the blood that he has spilt.

Than have found him lying low."
"Fauconshawe" by Adam Lindsay Gordon

Into the clearing's space rode he,
With the sun on the hilt of his sword in sheath,
And his silver buckles and spurs beneath,
And the settlers welcomed him, one and all,
From swift Quampeagan to Gonic Fall.

We shall also assume for simplicity that the thresholds in the HILT model are uniformly distributed; the analysis can be easily extended to HILT with general distribution F .

Px (k) dist.= Bin A(k) − X (k), λαN (X (k) + Y (k)) Py (k) dist.= Bin N − A(k) − Y (k), λσN (X (k) + Y (k)) Note also that due to the Interest Evolution process (HILT model) some relays get converted into destinations.

We see that for N = 1000 the o.d.e approximates the scaled HILT-SI Markov chain very well.

The original HILT-SI process (B (k), D(k), X (k), Y (k)) is then compared with the solutions of the o.d.e. by superimposing multiple sample paths of the original discrete time HILT-SI process on the o.d.e solutions.(see Figure 9).

As noted earlier, copying to a relay has two advantages, since the relay might meet a destination in the future, or might itself get converted into one, by the HILT process.
