    • n balistes A genus of plectognath fishes, typical of the family Balistidæ, containing such species as B. capriscus. They are known as trigger-fish, because one large and sharp first ray of the dorsal fin cannot be pressed down until the second ray is depressed, when the first shuts down as does the hammer of a gun when the trigger is pulled.

In science:

Nevertheless, it is comforting to see that both results are fairly close to a balistic scaling (∼ L2 ).
Solvable model of a polymer in random media with long ranged disorder correlations
The proofs of our results are mainly based on the auxiliary random walk introduced by Kalikow , and the result of Sznitman and Zerner on balistic RWRE .
Ballistic random walks in random environment at low disorder
It is actually true for any balistic RWRE in dimension 1, that the asymptotic speed of the RWRE is smaller than the mean drift given by the random environment.
Ballistic random walks in random environment at low disorder
Indeed sub-balistic spreadings are often computed (specially in the quasiperiodic case), but rarely observed.
Aperiodic Quantum Random Walks
Here the events we use are as in Balister, Bollob´as and Walters .
