This expresses concatenation - but without deciding if it is accepted! Note we cannot make a ⇒ b and b ⇒ c imply a ⇒b c a rule, as this would make concatenation of two composed paths possible.
Remarks on Inheritance Systems
The Murnaghan-Nakayama rule implies that χλ (ck ) = X|ξ|=k Any hook in λ composed of must have even leg length by construction so it follows that χλ (ck ) > 0.
Refined estimates for some basic random walks on the symmetric and alternating groups
This framework allows to conjugate the micro to the macro abstraction levels: nodes can be endowed with local dynamical rules, while the whole network can be though to be composed by hierarchies of clusters of nodes, that thus exhibits aggregated behavior.

On the whole, we find that three classes of network – homogeneous, scalefree (at the critical point) and ones composed of starlike structures, with a great many small-degree nodes connected to a few hubs – can emerge for any kind of attachment/detachment rules.

We will show at the end of this section that such rules are precisely those that one would obtain with the continuation N → iN (which corresponds to an inverse WR) when this is composed with the conformal transformation ds2 → ids2 .
Geometric interpretation of Thiemann's generalized Wick transform
More precisely, the transformation rules for the lapse, shift and gravitational phase space variables are the same under the GWT as under an inverse WR composed with a conformal transformation of a (squared) factor equal to i, provided that the WR is implemented by means of a complex rotation of the lapse function.
Geometric interpretation of Thiemann's generalized Wick transform
When S is different from either R or ˜R, the properties corresponding to these two rays are said to be incompatible, and R ∧ S is considered to be meaningless : it is not a formula composed according to the syntactical rules which govern meaningful quantum discourse.

We can easily incorporate this by promoting our Hopf algebra to pairs (Γ, σ) , where σ indicates the desired form-factor obtained by composing the Feynman rules with a suitable pro jector as above.

In graph rewriting systems based on category theory, we usualy define a category whose objects are graphs and morphisms are graph homomorphisms. A transformation rule is composed of at least two graphs called the left-hand side (usually noted L) and right-hand side (usually noted R).
