In science:

Our strategy will be to analyze, in the following few steps of the proof, the quantities Tπ , π ∈ P art(2p).
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
In this step we observe that if π ∈ P art(2p) is not r-stable (in the sense defined in Notations 3.5), then the index set of the summation in (3.16) is void, and hence Tπ = 0 (in a vacuous way).
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
Suppose that π ∈ P art(2p) is such that the index set of the summation in (3.16) is non-void.
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
Consider now a partition π ∈ P art(2p) which is r-stable but is not ε-null.
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
We consider next a partition π ∈ P art(2p) which is r-stable and ε-null, but is not a pairing (i.e. not all the blocks of π have exactly two elements).
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
It is also clear that the Step 2 of the proof in Section 3.6 can be repeated identically, and leads to the conclusion that Tπ ,k = 0 for every k ≥ 1 and every π ∈ P art(n) which is not r-stable.
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
Now let us remark that Tπ ,k = 0 for every k ≥ 1 and for every π ∈ P art(n) which has at least one singleton (i.e. a block with one element).
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
The conclusion of the preceding three paragraphs is that in the summation on the righthand side of (3.33) we may keep (without affecting what happens when k → ∞) only the terms which correspond to partitions π ∈ P art(n) that are r-stable, satisfy |π | ≥ n/2, and have no singletons.
Random unitaries in non-commutative tori, and an asymptotic model for q-circular systems
If n is even, it is immediate that a partition π ∈ P art(n) satisfies |π | ≥ n/2 and has no singletons if and only if it is a pairing.
