Remark 38 We remark that C (k,N ) = C (k) = C and Y (k,N ) = Y (k) = Y in distribution for al l k , N ; and that Y (k) , k ≥ 1, are iid; and Y (k,N ) , k ≥ 1, are iid given ˜τ (N ) for al l N .

Remark 4.4 In Remark 3.6 we have stated that D-submeasures do not satisfy the condition (a.c.) in general, which seems to play the crucial role for Γ(µ) to be the F N -topology.

In it is showed that all these notions of lowness are the same for a simple theory, and in particular it is remarked that every stable formula is low [1, Remark 2.2].

Remark 6.7 To keep the analysis concrete, we have implicitly assumed that after collapsing back the trivial components all the domains of the maps are stable, see Remark 2.1.

Remark 6. (Analogous to Remark 2.) If f , g ∈ M, f ∽ g , then these functions either both satisfy or both do not satisfy the condition (Cα ), and they both satisfy or do not satisfy the condition (Dα).

We are not going to use the notion of genericity (which is imported from the theory of stable groups in model theory), but we will make some apparently quite new remarks on genericity and Cartan subgroups in real Lie groups (Remark 56 below).
