‘Firstly, here is a map of the world, which has been rescaled so that the distance of a place on the map is proportional to the cost of calling the country from the UK.’
‘Another possible point of confusion is the extra factor of two in the parameters and relative to the way in which time is rescaled.’
‘Rare species were downweighted, and axes were rescaled.’
‘Although loading ratio rescales load size relative to body size, it does not completely incorporate all body-size dependence in the relation between fragment size and leaf transport rate.’
‘The variable was rescaled by dividing by 10 for estimation purposes.’
‘Basically, space-time had to be rescaled such that the speed of light in vacuum remained constant.’
‘All of the sum scores were rescaled to the original response scale.’
‘The scores are in dimensionless units, rescaled with identical scale factors.’
‘At each step of the algorithm, one should rescale constructed arrays to prevent numerical underflow.’
‘The ratings were rescaled to scales ranging from 0 to 10 to provide for a more adequate comparison by dividing the raw scores by the number of items and multiplying this quotient by 10.’
‘The more sophisticated rendering programs let your rescale the texture maps to suit.’
‘A method commonly used to take into account the unequal probabilities of selection and to make the variances more meaningful is to rescale the weight so that the average is one.’
‘To yield meaningful tests of significance, sample weights were applied to the data and then rescaled to equal the actual number of cases in the sample.’
‘The range is then divided by the standard deviation to produce a normalized or rescaled range value (R / S).’
‘Also, the two violence measures were rescaled prior to the transformations so that they both had a minimum score of 1.’
‘No editing has been done to the photos except edge cutting, and rescaling.’
