To take one's measure


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • To take one's measure to measure one, as for a garment; hence, to form an opinion of one's disposition, character, ability, etc.

In literature:

You know a lot of people it's difficult to get at unless one takes some extraordinary measures, as you've done.
"The Reverberator" by Henry James
You will learn with years that it's well to be alone at times, when one may take the measure of himself and those about him.
"The Hosts of the Air" by Joseph A. Altsheler
Sorry to have to take extreme measures, but it's every one for himself, in this world.
"Jewel Weed" by Alice Ames Winter
The Rally Hall boys had had time to take the unknown one's measure, and the general impression was favorable.

In news:

It's one of several measures JCC is taking to recoup money lost from declining enrollment.

In science:

For example, one could take S to be the space of probability measures.
Baysian inference via classes of normalized random measures
To proceed we follow [21, 22]: we (i) assume that the observables Ω are self-averaging at all times (which one expects to be true), and (ii) approximate the microscopic measure pt (s|Ω) by the maximum entropy distribution given the condition that the macroscopic observables take the value Ω.
Dynamical replica analysis of disordered Ising spin systems on finitely connected random graphs
In the BJR model G (n, κ), one is given a “ground space” S which we take to be [0, 1], and a Borel measurable kernel κ : S × S 7→ R+ .
Phase Transitions in Partially Structured Random Graphs
MEASUREMENTS The photomultiplier signals were split by a linear fan out with one of them fed to a discriminator and a gate generator to make the trigger signal, the other went into a 4 channel CAEN V1729 FADC that digitized the signal shape taking up to 2 Gsamples/s.
Performance of the first prototype of the HAWC Gamma Ray Observatory
One way to perform the POVM just described is to take an ancilla in H2, in an initial state (cid:16)c s(cid:17), and perform the Bell measurement on the ancilla and the system.
TelePOVM -- New Faces of Teleportation
One then has to set the scale at which αs takes on the measured value.
The QCD Coupling Constant
More importantly, one has to carefully take into account the maximally allowed sǫ obtained from the global fit of low energy precision measurements as given previously.
A Very Narrow Shadow Extra Z-boson at Colliders
The LHCb collaboration has studied the prospects to measure the angles of the unitarity triangle; for sin 2β they hope to achieve a statistical precision of 0.02 from one year of data taking in the golden channel B 0 → J/ψ K 0 S .
Summary of the Heavy Flavor Working Group
On a filtered probability space (Ω, F, {Ft }t∈[0,1], P) generated by a Brownian motion W with values in Rd, a solution to a one-dimensional BSDE consists of a pair of progressively measurable processes (Y, Z ) taking values in R and Rd, respectively, such that fs(Ys, Zs )ds − Z 1 Yt = ξ − Z 1 t ∈ [0, 1], P − a.s.
Wellposedness of Second Order Backward SDEs
In practise, taking the sum of QPD's signal is used to emulate a single element photo detector so that one interferometer can measure both angular displacement and longitudinal displacement simultaneously.
