Deviation of the line of the vertical


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Deviation of the line of the vertical the difference between the actual direction of a plumb line and the direction it would have if the earth were a perfect ellipsoid and homogeneous, -- caused by the attraction of a mountain, or irregularities in the earth's density.

In science:

Dotted vertical lines mark the flux limits corresponding to 90% completeness limits as determined from the deviation of the observed number counts from a power law and from simulations (Shupe et al. 2004).
Complete Multiwavelength Characterization of Faint Chandra X-ray Sources Seen in the Spitzer Wide-Area IR Extragalactic (SWIRE) Survey
The vertical dotted line marks the radius at which the profile starts to deviate significantly from an extrapolation of the r1/n profile observed at smaller radii.
High Redshift Galaxies in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field
The vertical lines are a standard deviation over 100 folds of the experiment (hiding a different 10% each time).
A Bayesian Model for Discovering Typological Implications
This is illustrated in Fig. 10, which shows the same distributions as in Figure 9, but here the vertical line indicates the 15.87% quantile of the distribution f (qµ |0), corresponding to having ˆµ fluctuate downward one standard deviation below its median.
Asymptotic formulae for likelihood-based tests of new physics
The offsets between the peaks of the solid (also the vertical dashed lines) and the short dashed/dotted lines indicate the deviations between the observed and the assumed phase spectrum at the the same frequencies.
Cross-spectral analysis of the X-ray variability of Mrk 421
Note that the small offsets between the peaks of the simulation lags (short dashed/dotted lines) and those of the observed ones (solid lines; also see the vertical dashed lines) indicate the deviations of the latter from the best-fit phase spectrum.
Cross-spectral analysis of the X-ray variability of Mrk 421
The vertically symmetrical band between solid lines shows the maximum deviation of the ratio from one, between the three generators MCi in the positive and the negative direction.
