Jamie opened up another line of inquiry.
"My Lady of the Chimney Corner" by Alexander Irvine
That is the line of inquiry.
"The Bartlett Mystery" by Louis Tracy
The two lines of inquiry remained for some time apart.
"Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition, Volume 2, Slice 7" by Various
Whatever my doubts might be, it was clearly impossible at present to proceed any further along that line of inquiry.
"That Affair at Elizabeth" by Burton E. Stevenson
In more recent years, however, new lines of inquiry have been opened up.
"Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition, Volume 9, Slice 7" by Various
That seemed to us a possible handicap in pursuing that line of inquiry.
"Pieces of Hate" by Heywood Broun
They took the shape of an inquiry: who was to succeed him in that fair inheritance, handed down from a long line of distinguished ancestors?
"The Child Wife" by Mayne Reid
We reproduce its most important features in our line of inquiry.
"Canada: Its Postage Stamps and Postal Stationery" by Clifton Armstrong Howes
At the suggestion of Professor Schlesinger we have looked up a very ingenious line of inquiry.
"Climatic Changes" by Ellsworth Huntington
As yet it only indicates a line of inquiry.
"Checkmate" by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
The chapters which fall within the line of our inquiry are based chiefly on a comparison between Western Europe and India.
"Villainage in England" by Paul Vinogradoff
But the District Attorney defended his line of inquiry.

It is not my intention here to pursue the line of historical inquiry thus suggested.
"Essays in Experimental Logic" by John Dewey
If you possess, or borrow, a microscope, many new wonders and fresh lines of inquiry will open out.
"Our British Snails" by John William Horsley
Any inquiry of that kind would be quite out of my line.
"Johnny Ludlow, Fifth Series" by Mrs. Henry Wood

In news:

Is it a legitimate line of inquiry to investigate US officials' possible ties to The Muslim Brotherhood.
It's a tedious line of inquiry, so Sarah says the obvious.

In science:

One line of inquiry would be to obtain data of clusters at high redshift (z > 0.5 and beyond) to fill in the currently sparsely-sampled region of the fB –z plane.
At the Vigintennial of the Butcher-Oemler Effect
This line of inquiry has been termed the ‘inverse problem of design’ by Joseph Goguen (Goguen, 2000) and ‘Information Psychophysics’ by Colin Ware (Ware, 2003).
Human Information Processing with the Personal Memex
We plan to develop this line of inquiry in a separate paper.
The eigenvalues and eigenvectors of finite, low rank perturbations of large random matrices
The new method retains the essential character of the traditional one, but is different enough that it can be used to justify several new lines of inquiry.
Compression Rate Method for Empirical Science and Application to Computer Vision
Because of the relaxation of the requirement for controlled experiments, the new method immediately justifies several new lines of scientific inquiry.
Compression Rate Method for Empirical Science and Application to Computer Vision
In addition to justifying several new lines of scientific inquiry, the new method also bears a much stronger resemblance to human learning.
Compression Rate Method for Empirical Science and Application to Computer Vision
We plan to develop this line of inquiry in a separate paper.
The singular values and vectors of low rank perturbations of large rectangular random matrices
The full SDEs can be derived, but their algebra is somewhat more involved than the one at leading order. A second line of inquiry is to study the algebra of constraints LT1 .
A generalization of the Virasoro algebra to arbitrary dimensions
Another line of inquiry regarding topological ultracoproducts concerns the General Preservation Problem 3.4, with PD Xi in place of QD Xi .
A Survey of Ultraproduct Constructions in General Topology
I thank Hsiao-Wen Chen and Chris Kochanek for suggesting this particular line of inquiry. I also thank Chris Kochanek for locating all these “the”s and “a”s that I have lost, misplaced or applied randomly. I thank the people whose e-mails I am quoting (I will keep them anonymous).
Are astronomical papers with more authors cited more?
The author does not know whether this persists for S n+1 or CP n for n > 1, though as noted above this is somewhat tangential to our main line of inquiry.
Curved String Topology and Tangential Fukaya Categories II
Extending the study in this direction to better understand the role and limits of temporal epistemic definability in security modeling is an important line of inquiry for future work.
Epistemic Temporal Logic for Information Flow Security
It is the ob ject of the current work to extend this line of inquiry and present rates for hard photon production from processes which arise solely at finite chemical potential.
Photon Production from Charge-Asymmetric Hot and Dense Matter
In this article we follow this line of inquiry.
Effective Strategies for Identifying Model Parameters for Open Quantum Systems
