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 ).

Formal chains of “broken arrows” will be the main tool of the rest of the paper.
