In this case under rather general conditions it is possible, putting eΘ = Θ and eκ = (cid:0)AΘ , BΘ(cid:1), to compute the tail probability as well as the expected value of the suprema of random mappings.

Suppose that the former is the case and put A′ = f (A); then A′ ⊂ B with A′ ≈ A (since f as a mapping from A to A′ is a bijection).
Finite Sets and Counting
In the discrete case, due to the fact that e ≈ (x, v ), e′ ≈ (x, v ′ ) and e′′ ≈ (x, v ′′ ) are completely different elements of a causal set, we can not assume that they share the same value of x (which is one reason I just put approximation signs).

No excess has been found so far, and this can also be used to put a constraint on the decaying dark matter case.

The basic result which we want to put into a larger context is the following canonical isomorphism of Galois groups, due to Fontaine and Wintenberger, . A special case is the following result.

In this case, any negative image, put specularly with respect to the barrier, ought to move specularly with respect to the positive solution, i.e. with a drift of opposite sign, in order to ensure the barrier constraint to be satisfied at any Λ.
The Cosmological Mass Function
Note that such a restriction is neither necessary, nor even desirable (it would exclude the treatment of gases and liquids), but it is fulfilled in all our examples and puts us into a good setting in all cases where we cannot directly refer to pointwise ergodic theorems.
