### Definition Of abscissa

(in a system of coordinates) the x -coordinate, the distance from a point to the vertical or y -axis measured parallel to the horizontal or x -axis.

Open and closed time histograms were plotted using a logarithmic abscissa and a square root ordinate and fitted to the sum of exponential functions by maximal likelihood using the program TACFit (Bruxton Corporation, Seattle, WA).

### Example Of abscissa

Here, the amplitude of the eigenvector in the lowest-frequency mode is plotted on the ordinate whereas the **abscissa** shows the residue number.

Open and closed time histograms were plotted using a logarithmic **abscissa** and a square root ordinate and fitted to the sum of exponential functions by maximal likelihood using the program TACFit (Bruxton Corporation, Seattle, WA).

Plotted on the **abscissa** of the graph are the incompatibility values or the proportions of informative sites incompatible with the particular clade in the set of artificially generated sequences.

That is to say, the intercepts on the **abscissa** and the ordinate should be higher for isocline 2 at x = 1.

To unify the curves to a single **abscissa** , we define a nominal maximal velocity for W / T e = 1, [beta] = 1, and y = 4.5.
