In science:

Since the coupled chain is collision-avoiding, it must take at least one additional step in order to move the second walker out of the way.
Avoidance Coupling
Note that a priori it is not clear if the correct qualitative picture is that the random walk completes covering of the torus by “taking out several neighbouring vertices at once” or if it “takes out the last few vertices one by one”.
Gumbel fluctuations for cover times in the discrete torus
Note that it is not dependent on control and hence we can take it out of the supremum.
Controlled Continuous Time Random Walks and fractional Hamilton Jacobi Bellman equations
E(sk (t)) = xB1 + B2 (the reason for taking one x out of B1 is technical — it allows us to use the same notations for the estimate of B1 and of B2 , nothing more).
Cycle structure of the interchange process and representation theory
Already in Corollary 2.7 it turned out that the subset F− of F takes up a special role.
One-dimensional Stochastic Differential Equations with Generalized and Singular Drift
The family of conditioned Galton-Watson trees turns out to be quite large, since it contains for instance uniform rooted planar binary trees (take µ(0) = µ(2) = 1/2) or uniform rooted labelled trees (Cayley trees, take µ(k) = e1/k !, k ≥ 0).
Fluctuations for the number of records on subtrees of the Continuum Random Tree
As the authors point out, it is essential to take this feature into account for the study of, say, epidemics.
Interplay between Network Topology and Dynamics in Neural Systems
This expectation is not borne out in quantum field theory on curved space-time because of the conservation law: for operators, it takes the same form as for classical densities, with covariant derivatives acting on the dependence of quantum fields on (classical) coordinates.
Quantum matter in quantum space-time
The zeta function expansion takes 17 seconds on a Sparcstation 1 computer, whereas if the Monte Carlo simulation had to be carried out to the precision obtained in the cycle expansion, it would require several hundred years of Sparcstation 1 time.
Zeta function for the Lyapunov exponent of a product of random matrices
In the dilute limit, the main effect of this interaction is to prevent more than one pair to take advantage of a particular favorable configuration (and the ones very close to it), which turns out to be a very important constraint at low temperatures .
Vortex statistics in a disordered two-dimensional XY model
It turns out, that the spin–glass transition (in the sense of an Almeida-Thouless line), which is believed to take place at TRSB , always precedes the ferromagnetic transition (see Fig. 5).
Theory of the Random Field Ising Model
It turns out that (in every known example) this S p(2r, Z) “periodicity” of τab can be geometrically encoded by taking τab to be the complex structure (period matrix) of a genus-r Riemann surface Σ.

It turns out to be the easiest strategy in finding the necessary modifications to take the old ADM-action in its manifestly finite and functionally differentiable version and then to express it in terms of the new variables.

It turns out that, as displayed in the right panel in Fig. 9, from Ref.

Status of Neutrino Theory
It is worth pointing out that the perspective adopted in this paper makes it possible to take into account the time dependence of the solar flare rate.
