At the conclusion of this section we add on more argument in favor of parametric space quantization to those brought forward in the Introduction.
Quantum Theory within the Framework of General Relativity
Sample from the random cluster model on T , and add back in the edges thereby colored 1 to get At+1 .
The Randomness Recycler: A new technique for perfect sampling
To add a symbol to the end of the string, we multiply the current fingerprint by n′ , and add on the new symbol.
When Can You Fold a Map?
To add a symbol to the beginning of the string (which is necessary for the reverse complement substring), we add on the new symbol times (n′ )k where k is the current length of the string (we maintain (n′ )k mod p throughout the computation).
When Can You Fold a Map?
Recall that we add prime on the constructional ingredients related to P (~ℓ′ , Γ′ , J ′ , σ ′ , φ′).
Central Simple Poisson Algebras
Let us add that the above description is based on well known results on Fuchsian groups theory (see [15,14]).
Random walks on hyperbolic groups and their Riemann surfaces
Thus RF detection may be able to add information on shower height and primary composition, and to provide a low-cost auxiliary system in pro jects such as the Pierre Auger array .
Extensive Air Shower Radio Detection: Recent Results and Outlook
Introduction TRANSITION Radiation Detectors (TRDs) are being used in high energy experiments to improve the identification of electrons with respect to pions for momenta between ∼1 and 100 GeV/c (see for a review on TRDs). A proposal to add a TRD to the ALICE experiment was approved in May 1999.
Prototype tests for the ALICE TRD
This behavior clearly shows the presence of an extra gravitational field that artificially cancels the effects of gravity on the total mass (in the puncture data) or adds even more energy that the amount required to cancel out the effect on the total mass (in the imaging data).

This offers a simple and useful way, for example, to add or subtract long waves in order to examine their effect on small scale structure.

Gibbs and Quantum Discrete Spaces
The symplectic structure of the theory and consequently its phase space are instead defined in literature starting from the symplectic current ˜ω defined on the surface Σ and by a symplectic structure on the boundary ∂Σ, which is dictated by the choice of the boundary term we add to the Lagrangian; see .
