For he kenned the themes that pleased her best;
And his tongue in silken measures skilled,
With goodly ditties her memory filled.

All gentiless and honour thence come forth;
Thence worship comes, content and true heart's pleasure,
And full-assured trust, joy without measure,
And jollity, fresh cheerfulness, and mirth;

Now that we are perhaps beginning to see some relief from our current economic woes, it might be a good time for CIOs to focus on how they would like to be measured during and after the recovery.
Here's a list of 10 of our most affordable favorites, plus one not-so-affordable for good measure.

For good measure, it's always a good idea to apply a small amount of thread sealer to the threads of the rocker stud .

In science:

The calculated phase diagrams fit pretty good the measured ones for (PMN)1−x (PT)x and (PSN)1−x (PST)x .
Phase diagram of mixed system of ferroelectric relaxors in the random field theory framework
The CII line intensity is also weakly dependent on T, hence a good measure for P .
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
One can frequently make perfectly good sense of a system being said to contain information about a parameter if a suitable measurement on the system would display a probabilistic dependence on the parameter, for then one can learn something about the parameter by performing the measurement.
Nonlocality and information flow: The approach of Deutsch and Hayden
There are two points to be answered precisely: What does “good approximation” mean and in what P-probability sense can we expect that such approximation holds? For the first point we choose the total variation distance for probability measures on {−1, +1}N .
A representation of Gibbs measure for the random energy model
For a few sources in the figure the photometric redshift is compared with the available spectroscopic measures, with a fairly good agreement between the two.
Complete Multiwavelength Characterization of Faint Chandra X-ray Sources Seen in the Spitzer Wide-Area IR Extragalactic (SWIRE) Survey
To detect a linear polarization of 30% with SNR = 5, a precision of 6% for the polarization is required. Note that good precision on the absolute polarization is not required. Since stars are not polarized, measuring the polarization relative to the star is sufficient.
Coronographic Methods for the Detection of Terrestrial Planets
For local search methods we need a cost function that will measure how good different flips are, so that we can choose the best one at each step.
Single-solution Random 3-SAT Instances
It is not absolutely clear what the ultimate limit of the measurements involving the 2p states is, but indeed an experiment with more narrow levels should have a good chance for a higher accuracy.
Precision physics of simple atoms: QED tests, nuclear structure and fundamental constants
Since it can be shown that measuring in a Haar-random orthonormal basis is hard for a quantum computer, the main open question that arises from our work is whether there are efficiently implementable pseudo-random orthonormal bases for specific ensembles tha t have good distinguishing power.
Random measurement bases, quantum state distinction and applications to the hidden subgroup problem
Related work: The so-called pretty good measurement, also known as the square-root measurement, has been proposed in the past as a measurement for the state identification problem [HW94].

Random measurement bases, quantum state distinction and applications to the hidden subgroup problem
In their search for a good measure of entanglement, E (ρ), of a bipartite state ρ, Vedral et al stated in Ref. the following general demands: E1) E (ρ) vanishes if and only if the state ρ is separable; E2) local unitary transformations preserve E (ρ); E3) E (ρ) does not increase under local general measurements.
Entanglement and Teleportation of Gaussian States of the Radiation Field
One important matter may be formulated as follows: Given a sequence {Xn } on a probability space (Ω, µ, F ), find a measurable set Ω∗ ⊂ Ω with µ(Ω∗ ) = 1, such that for any ω ∈ Ω∗ the sequence an := Xn (ω) is a universally good weight sequence for the ergodic theorem for all functions in some specified class.
