- They were five-toed, bunodont Condylarthra, with a decided
**approximation**to the perissodactyle type in the structure of the feet. - Subsequently to the floating off of the entosternite the
**approximation**of the nerve cords took place in the prosoma, and thus they were able to take up a position below the entosternite. - In the mesosoma the
**approximation**had occurred before the entosternites were formed. - Is approximately equal to -J(27rn).(nle) n; the
**approximation**may be improved by Stirling's theorem log e 2 +log e 3 +... - In the article Crystallography the nature and behaviour of twinned crystals receives full treatment; here it is sufficient to say that when the planes and axes of twinning are planes and axes of symmetry, a twin would exhibit higher symmetry (but remain in the same crystal system) than the primary crystal; and, also, if a crystal approximates in its axial constants to 'a higher system, mimetic twinning would increase the
**approximation**, and the crystal would be pseudo-symmetric.
