It simply means that, like a lot of science, absolute and mechanical objectivity is an asymptote we must always approach without quite reaching.
Like the asymptote , you are always approaching your goal, but you never achieve it.
The polynomial structures are unable to handle correlation patterns that decrease asymptotically to zero within the range of the data, and the correlation obtained by both models goes negative.
For these data, the linear and asymptotic curves were nearly indistinguishable.
He also worked on asymptotic analysis, fractional integration and singular partial differential equations.
In book two Apollonius investigates how hyperbolas are related to their asymptotes , and he also studies how to draw tangents to given conics.
Other topics in the large range of applied mathematics topics which he studied were existence theorems and asymptotic expansions.
There seems to be some kind of law that requires presidential campaigns to become asymptotically more trivial as election day approaches.
She was up in her attic one afternoon, trying to concentrate on where to place her asymptotes on her hyperbola, but her mind traveled elsewhere.
These models, which more closely resemble reality, involve one or two curves tending towards asymptotes .
