In science:

We show how the residuals to the combined fit bin down with increasing sample size in Figure 4: the curve shown tracks closely with the N −1/2 expectation from uncorrelated noise on short time scales (< 20 min), but on longer time scales the residuals bin down more slowly than this.

With the exception of the residual spectral errors on dataset A, which range between 2 and 9 times greater than the optimal rank-k spectral residual error for k < 20, we see that the residual errors for all three datasets are less than 1.1 times the residual error of Mk if not significantly smaller.

Specifically, the relative residual errors of the restricted-rank approximations remain less than 1.1 over the entire range of k while the relative residual errors of the non-rank-restricted approximations actually decrease as k increases.
