Definition
 
enEnglish
Intensity definition: The degree or magnitude of strength, energy, or feeling.
light intensity definition: light-giving power of a source of light.
Ultrasound, High-Intensity Focused, Transrectal definition: Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
response to light intensity definition: A change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a light intensity stimulus. [GOC:go_curators]
response to high light intensity definition: A change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a high light intensity stimulus. [GOC:go_curators]
response to low light intensity stimulus definition: A change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a low light intensity stimulus. Low light intensity is defined as a level of electromagnetic radiation at or below 0.1 micromols/m2. [GOC:go_curators, GOC:mtg_far_red]
determination of stimulus intensity definition: The determination of the perceived strength of a sensory stimulus. [ISBN:0721619908]
Gracely Pain Intensity Scale definition: A visual analog scale of 0 to 20, used by a subject to define their pain intensity experience. Together with the unpleasantness scale these tools serve to differentiate the patient's sensory perception of pain intensity from their affective experience of the pain's "unpleasant" quality.
Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy definition: An advanced form of 3-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy that involves the use of varying intensities of small radiation beams to produce dosage distributions that are more precise than those possible with 3-D CRT.
Radiotherapy, Intensity-Modulated definition: CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.

Intensität definition: [1] Kraft, Stärke, Wirksamkeit, Größe [2] (Physik) Eine physikalische Größe: Maß des Energieflusses je Zeit und Fläche [3] Maß, wie eingehend, wie intensiv eine Sache betrieben wird
Lichtstärke definition: [1] Fotografie: das Verhältnis der größten wirksamen Blendenöffnung zur Brennweite eines Objektivs [2] Physik: die Strahlungsleistung einer Lichtquelle pro Raumwinkel, gewichtet mit der spektralen Empfindlichkeit des Auges

From this fitted curve, estimates of the seasonal intensity of occurrence (i.e., peak-to-low ratio of the fitted curve) can be generated.

M Alan Brookhart et al.

BMC Medical Research Methodology 8 (7), 22 Oct 2008

We discuss various approaches to the estimation of seasonal intensity assuming Edwards's periodic model, including maximum likelihood estimation (MLE), least squares, weighted least squares, and a new closed-form estimator based on a second-order moment statistic and non-transformed data.

M Alan Brookhart et al.

BMC Medical Research Methodology 8 (7), 22 Oct 2008

From this basic framework, he derived both a test of the null hypothesis of no seasonality and an estimator of the intensity of seasonal occurrence (i.e., the peak-to-low ratio of the fitted sine curve).

M Alan Brookhart et al.

BMC Medical Research Methodology 8 (7), 22 Oct 2008

Although there has been considerable discussion of the hypothesis testing procedure described by Edwards and a variety of alternative tests have been proposed [ 8 - 12 ], there has been relatively little discussion of the properties of Edwards's estimator of the intensity of seasonal occurrence.

M Alan Brookhart et al.

BMC Medical Research Methodology 8 (7), 22 Oct 2008

In this paper, we review various approaches to the estimation of the intensity of seasonal occurrence, including Edwards's methods, least squares, weighted least squares, and the MLE.
