**Majority loser criterion**— The majority loser criterion is a criterion to evaluate single winner voting systems. The criterion states that if a majority of voters prefers every other candidate over a given candidate, then that candidate must not win. Either of the… …112

**Participation criterion**— The participation criterion is a voting system criterion. It is also known as the no show paradox . It has been defined[1] as follows: In a deterministic framework, the participation criterion says that the addition of a ballot, where candidate A …113

**Deviance information criterion**— The deviance information criterion (DIC) is a hierarchical modeling generalization of the AIC (Akaike information criterion) and BIC (Bayesian information criterion, also known as the Schwarz criterion). It is particularly useful in Bayesian… …114

**Nyquist ISI criterion**— Raised cosine response meets the Nyquist ISI criterion. Consecutive raised cosine impulses demonstrate the zero ISI property between transmitted symbols at the sampling instants. At t=0 the middle pulse is at its maximum and the sum of other… …115

**T-criterion**— The T failure criterion [Andrianopoulos, N.P., Atkins, A.G., Experimental Determination of the Failure Parameters ΤD,0 and ΤV,0 in Mild Steels According to the T criterion, ECF9 Reliability and Structural Integrity of Advanced Materials, Vol. III …116

**The Criterion Collection**— Rechtsform Incorporated Gründung 1984 …117

**Lawson criterion**— In nuclear fusion research, the Lawson criterion, first derived on fusion reactors (initially classified) by John D. Lawson in 1955 and published in 1957,[1] is an important general measure of a system that defines the conditions needed for a… …118

**Nyquist stability criterion**— The Nyquist plot for . When designing a feedback control system, it is generally necessary to determine whether the closed loop system will be stable. An example of a destabilizing feedback control system would be a car steering system that… …119

**Value criterion**— In Lincoln Douglas Debate, the value criterion (criterion, VC, or standard) is the means of weighing the value premise. Unlike the value premise, the value criterion is often swayed to either the affirmative or negative side. It can be shortened… …120

**Christensen Failure Criterion**— Failure criteria for isotropic materials has been a long standing problem. Despite many historical attempts, there have not been any successful general forms that span the range from ductile to brittle materials. A new failure criterion that aims …
