In science:
We deﬁne an extension in V of A by M to be a triple hχ, E , πi such that E is an algebra of V, π : E → A is an onto homomorphism, and χ : πRes P → κ∗ is an isomorphism of pointed overalgebras, where P is the underlying pointed A-overalgebra of M and κ = ker π .
Abelian extensions of algebras in congruence-modular varieties
An → An+1 are coface maps and σ i : An → An−1 are codegenerecies.
Equivariant Cyclic Cohomology of H-Algebras
This is because if no edge of an edge disjoint subset touches v , this edge disjoint subset is not maximal (it can be completed with {v , w}), and if an edge disjoint subset has an edge that touches v , replacing this edge by {v , w} yields an edge disjoint subset of the same size.
Core percolation in random graphs: a critical phenomena analysis
The Hamiltonian of this random anisotropy model (RAM) reads:4 JR,R′ ~SR ~SR′ − D0 XR H = − XR,R′ where ~SR is an m-component vector on a lattice site R, JR,R′ is an exchange interaction, D0 is an anisotropy strength, and ˆxR is a unit vector pointing in the local (quenched) random direction of an uniaxial anisotropy.

However, the main diﬃculty is that both proofs contain an operation of taking an irreducible submodule of an An -module.

The ﬁrst such mechanism was proposed long ago by Hoyle & Lyttleton who argued that an encounter of the Solar System with an interstellar cloud might trigger an ice age epoch by increasing the solar luminosity, which produces an over compensating increase in cloudiness.

Either {An} is an approximation of {Dn} and {Dn } satisﬁes the isoperimetric property (P), or {Dn } is an approximation of {An }. (In the second case, {Dn} satisﬁes property (P) automatical ly, see the second statement of Lemma 2.5 below.) Sequences satisfying only (8) are cal led Følner sequences.
Integrated density of states for ergodic random Schr\"odinger operators on manifolds
So, if an observer in an arbitrary curved space-time, he will not know that that whether the Einstein ﬁeld equation is satisﬁed or not in his coordinate system, or in other words, Einstein ﬁeld equation does not hold in an arbitrary coordinate system of an arbitrary curved space-time.
Problems on Foundations of General Relativity
They include: (1) an expanding, spherical shell driven by an isotropic wind, (2) a shell driven by an angle-dependent wind within an r−2 density distribution (Shu et al. 1991), and (3) the bowshock created by the wind from a star that is moving into a uniform medium.

The discretized ﬁeld tensor Fn;µν = An;µ + An+bµ;ν − An+bν ;µ − An;ν takes the circuitation of the vector ﬁeld An;µ around each elementary plaquette (n; µν ) of the lattice, and thus is a linear combination of the entries An;µ .
General duality for abelian-group-valued statistical-mechanics models
As in Section 2, we have the twisted diagonal action k 7→ Tk of K on (AN )l given by Tk = ν −1 ◦ δk ◦ ν : (AN )l −→ (AN )l , where ν : (AN )l → (AN )l is as in (2.5) with A0N0 replaced by AN , and δk denotes the diagonal action of k ∈ K on AN .
Thompson's conjecture for real semi-simple Lie groups
More precisely, we will see in the Appendix that the map E −1 ◦ m : (AN )l → p is a moment map for the twisted diagonal K –action T on (AN )l with respect to a Poisson structure π1 on (AN )l , and (τd)l is an anti–Poisson involution for π1 .
