In science:

Graphs generated by the above described algorithm are, in general, degenerate (as are the ob jects constructed in the well-known paper by Molloy and Reed ; these construction is often misused in the physics literature as a method of generating graphs, without due attention to the degeneracy problem).
On the Geometry of Random Networks
The most recent paper addressing this issue is by Reed (2005), who does not derive the SFR, but states that the galactic supernova rate is estimated as probably not less than 1 nor more than 2 per century.

The questions we discuss in this paper fall naturally into the framework of local testability of Reed-Muller codes.
Low-degree tests at large distances
In the first part of this paper we show that quasi-BCH codes can be derived from Reed-Solomon codes over square matrices extending the known relation about classical BCH and Reed-Solomon codes.
On the decoding of quasi-BCH codes
In the second part of this paper we show that quasi-BCH codes can be seen as subcodes of interleaved Reed-Solomon codes over finite fields.

In an earlier paper (Reed 1997; R97) I estimated Z based on assigning average absolute magnitudes to a large sample (up to ~ 12,000) of OB stars with known photographic magnitudes that lay within 10o of the galactic plane and approximately 4 kpc of the Sun and assuming a barometric-type extinction model.
The Sun's displacement from the galactic plane from spectroscopic parallaxes of 2400 OB stars
In this paper we study the mixing properties of the Gilbert-Shannon-Reeds model [11, 13] for riffle shuffling a deck of n cards and ask how many times the deck must be shuffled for the cards to be in close to random order.

In this paper we study the mixing properties of the Gilbert-Shannon-Reeds model for riffle shuffling n cards.

In this paper, we show that (essentially) the proof of our first main result implies a related result that in turn implies a modest improvement in the running time of algorithms to decode Reed-Solomon codes from ρ > 1 − √R fraction of random errors.

The outer code Cout in this paper will either be a random linear code over FQ or the folded Reed-Solomon code from .
