In science:

They will be our main technical tools for the rest of the paper.
On a deformed topological vertex
What distinguishes this work from the rest is our interest in prototypes as a tool for better understanding a data set—that is, making it more easily “human-readable.” The bulk of the previous literature has been on prototype extraction specifically for building classifiers.
Prototype selection for interpretable classification
To motivate the rest of the tools we need to for our construction, consider again dπ0u in the special case when P Λk (T ) = P − 1 Λk (T ).
Local bounded cochain projection
Formal chains of “broken arrows” will be the main tool of the rest of the paper.
Final coalgebras in accessible categories
In reality, the independent concepts and conceptual systems used in our statements are human creations, self-made tools, whose validation and value ultimately rests on the fact that they help us to order our experiences “with convenience” (turn out to be true ∗ ).
Elementary Considerations on the Interpretation of the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics
In this section we introduce some technical tools that are important for the rest of this seminar.
Representations of finite groups: Local cohomology and support
All in all, what makes our tool stand out from the rest is that it was designed for use with a property based testing tools with the power of PropEr.
Automatic WSDL-guided Test Case Generation for PropEr Testing of Web Services
As yet we do not have sophisticated enough tools to describe such backgrounds over the full SGU T in F-theory, as opposed to a local patch, and so for the rest of this review we restrict ourselves to Higgs backgrounds that are fully characterised by their eigenvalues (which may have branch cuts interchanging them).

In §2 we recall some The rest of the paper is organized as follows. basic tools used later.

In the next section, we shall explain about our main tools and results; the rest of the paper will be devoted to the proofs.

The rest of the article is organized as follows: In section 2 we shall prove suitable Carleman estimates which are the main tools in obtaining unique continuation results.
