    • n roup An infectious disease of the respiratory passages of poultry, closely similar in character and origin to catarrh in man, but more virulent and rapid in its progress, and very commonly fatal. It begins with a slight cough or a discharge from the nostrils; the discharge quickly becomes fetid, and frequently fills the eyes. The head swells, the eyes are closed, and sight is often destroyed. Cheesy cankers of diphtheritic character often form in the throat and mouth, frequently causing death by choking. As a remedy, injection of a weak solution of copper sulphate (1/2 ounce to 1 quart water) gives good results.

Typed Generic Traversal With Term Rewriting Strategies
In this section, we explain how this picture holds true in general by considering random quotients of profinite free-g roups; this helps clarify why we got well-de fined probabilities such as p(Q, g, g).
Finite covers of random 3-manifolds
The only proof that polynomially many iterations of single register Fourier sampling suffice information-theoretically to identify hidden subg roups in the Heisenberg group is through random Fourier sampling, and was first observed in [RRS05].
Random measurement bases, quantum state distinction and applications to the hidden subgroup problem
The bijection is realized explicitly as follows: to a finite g roup scheme G of height 1, one associates the restricted Lie algebra Lie(G) with p-map given by the differential of the map x 7→ x p .

In many familiar categories, such as G roup , being an epimorphism is equivalent to being a surjective map (for a proof of this, see ).
Dominions in varieties generated by simple groups
Recall that a variety of groups is a full subcategory of G roup which is closed under taking quotients, subgroups and arbitrary direct products.

Therefore, when talking about Var({Si}) we may assume without loss of generality the Si are pairwise non-isomorphic, and that Var({Si}) = G roup , or else that {Si}i∈I is a finite collection finite nonabelian simple groups such that no Si is a subfactor of any other.
