Kom niet eerder: ons verlangen
Is sterker dan de tijd!

In science:

The restriction of Te to the imaginary axis parametrizes Z (NI ) and therefore Te maps to the complexification SU(ψ).
Compactifications defined by arrangements I: the ball quotient case
If ∆U > 0, the partition P ′ is accepted with the probability e− ∆U Te , where Te is a control parameter.
Clusters in Simple Fluids
T = (Te − T ), and we have estimated |∇Te | ≈ (∆T /a).

Therefore τ (tE ) = tE and in fact τ must fix the whole neighbourhood of T .

We assumed a mean Te of 7200 K for the ob jects where Te are not available in Table 5 of Garay et al. 1998.

That is, contrary to the DLG, for which TE increases with E , the DLJF shows a transition temperature TE which decreases with increasing E .
Lennard--Jones and Lattice Models of Driven Fluids
Classical theory predicts a time-scale tE ≈ 173 in the limit where the Rossby number ∆Ω/Ω vanishes; an exponential fit to the dashed curve gives tE ≈ 243, which agrees well given that we have ∆Ω/Ω = 0.1 in our numerical experiments.

Scaling limits of bipartite planar maps are homeomorphic to the 2-sphere
Proposition 3.3 The metric space (Te / ≈, D∗ ) is almost surely homeomorphic to the quotient space Te / ∼Z .
Scaling limits of bipartite planar maps are homeomorphic to the 2-sphere
We first construct a (canonical) bijection between Te / ≈ and Te / ∼Z and then verify that this bijection is a homeomorphism.
Scaling limits of bipartite planar maps are homeomorphic to the 2-sphere
According to the re-rooting lemma (Lemma 2.2 in [DL]), ρ induces an isometry R from (Te , de) onto (Te , de).
Scaling limits of bipartite planar maps are homeomorphic to the 2-sphere
Thus R induces a bijection, which we denote by eR, from Te / ≈ onto Te / ∼Z .
Scaling limits of bipartite planar maps are homeomorphic to the 2-sphere
The canonical pro jection from Te onto (Te / ≈, D∗) is continuous: Using the continuity of the mapping S1 ∋ a → Z a , a direct inspection of the definition of D◦ shows that if αn tends to α in Te then D◦(αn , α) tends to 0 and a fortiori D∗(αn , α) tends to 0 as n → ∞.
Scaling limits of bipartite planar maps are homeomorphic to the 2-sphere
By composing the isometry R−1 from (Te , de) onto (Te , de) with the previous pro jection, we get a continuous mapping from (Te , de) onto (Te / ≈, D∗), which in turn induces a continuous mapping from the space Te / ∼Z , equipped with the quotient topology, onto (Te / ≈, D∗ ).
