Xσ∈SN = e−N (ln 2+β2 /2) eβN √2 ln 2−β ln(N ln 2)+ln 4π Let us now introduce the point process on R given by PN ≡ Xσ∈SN A classical result from the theory of extreme order statistics (see e.g. [LLR]) asserts that the point process PN converges weakly to a Poisson point process on R with intensity measure e−x dx.

The operators U ∗ i∗D ′ 2 iU and (U ∗ i∗D ′ 2 iU )2 are distinct in general and we have still to compare e−t(U ∗ i∗D ′ 2 iU )P ′ and e−t(U ∗ i∗D ′ 2 iU )2 P ′ .

Remark 2.3 A qualitative and simple argument, showing the convergence of (2.12), is that the measure dµ(B ) = dB |detB |n scales as dµ(tB ) = tm(m+n)dµ(B ), and thus has the same scaling property as dA in (2.2), indicating that the integral (2.12) converges, in view of (2.5).

Random Planar Lattices and Integrated SuperBrownian Excursion
In 2.3 the problems analyzed in 2.1 and 2.2 are related to the energy conservation principle and the concepts of heat - the meaning of the "First" Principle of Thermodynamics is analyzed and three examples of the conceptual difficult ies emerging from the paradigmat ic view are referred to at 2.3.1, 2.3.2 and 2.3.3.
The Energy-Entropy Principle
Since PSL(2, Fq ) is a subgroup of index 2 in PGL(2, Fq ), the intersection H := G T PGL(2, Fq ) is either a normal subgroup of order 2 in G or trivial (oneelement subgroup).
Very simple representations: variations on a theme of Clifford
If we now assume that the local distribution of vorticity is Gaussian so that χ(σ) = e−α2 σ2 in Eq. (99), then the ω − ψ relationship is linear and can be written ω = −Ω2 (βψ + α), where Ω2 = ω2 is a constant equal to the centered variance of the vorticity distribution.

Next we consider the assumptions in Theorem 4.3. (a) Our assumption g ≤ −2 is unnecessary, and it could be dropped: If g ∈ R, then it follows easily from (9) and from the property (c) in 2.2 of strictly permissible functions that indeed g ≤ −2. (b) Suppose that −n < g ≤ −2.

The non-intersection exponents (2.6) and (2.7) of L Brownian paths seen in section 2 are identical to the percolation path crossing exponents for 2ζL = xℓ , 2 ˜ζL = ˜xℓ , so we obtain a complete scaling equivalence between a Brownian path and two percolating crossing paths, in both the plane and half-plane .

We emphasize that, while technically convenient, the restriction to balanced 2-colorings is not essential for the second moment method to succeed on hypergraph 2-colorability, i.e., one has E[X 2 ] = O(E[X ]2 ) even if X is the number of all 2-colorings.
