A copy of a book released in advance of the publication date. These are typically in a different format before the book is published, often uncorrected and unbound.
Advance Reader's Copy. A paperback edition of a book, put out before the trade edition for publicity.
Advanced Reading Copy. A sample publication produced with author/customer submitted material. Many times this is in an alternate binding (or unbound with small publications) than the main publishing. The reproduction process is usually not the same as the main printing (100+) and therefore differences in quality, text block placement, etc. may occur between the ARC and the published book. For POD, however, this gives the customer the chance to see the quality of photograph the supplied material will produce. Since Gregath works mainly from submitted camera ready copy, an ARC is generally not necessary. Our quality guarantee covers any printer error (such as upside down photos) that may occasionally occur.

Keywords:  polygon, endpoint, linear, node, vector
An arc is a shape that is composed of many points, but is not closed, so has two endpoints. (Ideally, an arc would be composed of an infinite number of points; practically, they are composed of straight lines that are joined by points called nodes.) Examples are rivers, streets, and pathways. From a mathematical perspective, an arc has a length, a beginning and an end, a right and a left. Arcs that have direction are sometimes called routes.
A coverage feature class used to represent linear features (lines).
A connection between nodes in the vector GIS model.
Keywords:  headpin, foulline, hook, tame, sharp
The path of a gradual hook of the ball.
Ball path from the foulline to the headpin that does not have a sharp, defined break point.
A type of ball reaction favored by many players in that the ball has a slower continuous hooking action rather than the "skid-snap" reaction of some aggressive balls. Note that if you have a highly aggressive ball that is causing too much over/under reaction, you can tame the ball somewhat by dulling the surface from the shine with a 600 or 800 wet sanded grit.

In a projective plane, a k-arc is a set of k points no three of which are collinear. In general, in PG(n,q), a k-arc is a set of k points any n+1 of which form a basis for PG(n,q). Sets of k points in PG(n,q) with the property that no three points are collinear are called k-caps. k-arcs in PG(2,q) are thus k-caps, but this terminology is never used.
One partial revolution of the radiation source in an external beam radiation therapy treatment. An arc is defined by its starting and ending points, plane of rotation, etc.
Let \pi be a finite projective plane (not necessarily Desarguesian) of order q. A (k,d) -arc A (k\leq 1,d\leq 1)is a set of k points of \pi such that each line intersects A in at most d points, and there is at least one line that does intersect A in d points.

This occurs during a sealing operation, the buffer is usually damaged, either by deposits of carbon, or holes through the material. If the damage is not too extensive, the burned area may be cleaned with solvent to remove the carbon deposits, and/or lightly sanded. The reason for getting rid of the carbon is that r.f. is attracted to it and will keep on reacting to it if you don't get rid of it. The damaged area may then be patched with a single layer of mylar tape approximately .001" thick. Clean the die up also. If the damage is more severe, replace the entire buffer. Make sure the Arc Suppressor sensitivity is set to the most sensitive setting. Make sure this is working before continuing. See Surface flash
