Abstrait: Un avion tiltrotor est utilisable en mode de vol en hélicoptère et en mode de vol en avion. L'avion tiltrotor a une cellule comprenant un fuselage et une aile. Les premier et deuxième ensembles de pylônes sont respectivement couplés à la cellule près des extrémités extérieures de l'aile. Chaque ensemble de pylône comprend un mât et un ensemble de proproteur pouvant être mis en rotation avec le mât pour générer une poussée. Les ensembles de pylônes peuvent tourner par rapport à l'aile pour faire fonctionner sélectivement l'aéronef tiltrotor entre le mode de vol en hélicoptère et le mode de vol en avion. La poussée de chaque ensemble proprotor a un vecteur de poussée avec un angle intérieur compris entre environ 5 degrés et environ 12 degrés par rapport à un axe parallèle à l'axe de lacet pendant les opérations de vol stationnaire, ce qui réduit le chargement sur la cellule et améliore l'efficacité du vol stationnaire.

A modulo operation is then performed to create a unique pointer position to a congruence number for each of the created previously created bins. Thus, any desired subset of reduced wagering odds can be achieved with the virtual creation of the corresponding number of bins.
