The virtue of the particular model studied is that it allows a detailed analytic approach which allows one to gain insight on all aspects of its behavior.

It allows to find a formula for the typical rank in the limit of large matrices as a function of the model parameters γ and β , which allows to derive interesting phase diagrams.

This mounting bracket also allows a ±10 degree tilt (“pitch”) using a screw-jack mechanism at the rear of the dewar, allowing the entire dewar to pivot on its front two mounting pins by applying a vertical movement at the rear pin.

As the geometric setting in [Achab-Faraut 2012] allowed to give realizations of only spherical minimal representations, we consider in this paper a more general geometric setting which allows to realize all minimal representations.

The first extension is to allow scaling in the state space Rm by linear operators (namely, b(r) in (1.1) is allowed to be a linear operator on Rm ) and the corresponding processes are called operator-self-similar processes in the literature.
