In science:

The shot noise power S ∝ Pn Tn (1 − Tn) (the second moment of the time dependent current fluctuations) provides more information.
Applications of random matrix theory to condensed matter and optical physics
The replacement of the sum over n by an integration over T with weight ρ(T ) is justified in the largeN limit.) This one-third suppression of shot noise below the Poisson value has been confirmed experimentally (Ste96; Hen99), see Fig. 2.
Applications of random matrix theory to condensed matter and optical physics
Sub-Poissonian shot noise in a quantum dot at 270 mK.
Applications of random matrix theory to condensed matter and optical physics
This bimodal structure can be detected as subPoissonian shot noise.
Applications of random matrix theory to condensed matter and optical physics
This equation expresses the fact that the fraction 1 − e−τE /τdwell of electrons that stay inside the quantum dot for times shorter than τE follow a deterministic classical motion that does not contribute to the shot noise.
Applications of random matrix theory to condensed matter and optical physics
In fact, one can alternatively interpret the sub-Poissonian shot noise in terms of a semiclassical theory that makes no reference at all to the transmission matrix (Nag92). A direct measurement of the ratio T 2/T would require the preparation of a specific scattering state, which is not feasible in electronics.
Applications of random matrix theory to condensed matter and optical physics
Generally speaking, strategic models are suitable for scenarios where cooperation is necessary but seems impossible in one-shot games, that is, Nash equilibrium is not Pareto optimal.
