Of fading beauty; if it prove

To have our ancient sins forgiv'n.

In science:

The j -th walker starts at the position x = 2j − 2 and, after M steps, arrives at x = Xj .
Vicious Random Walkers and a Discretization of Gaussian Random Matrix Ensembles
If there was a function f : X → X such that a particle at xt always arrives at f (x)t′ , probabilities on Xt ∪Xt′ would be determined by Probt and f .
Physics with exotic probability theory
As pointed out in reference 4, modifying probability theory means that we are free to simply assume that if a particle arrives at a point xt′ at a detecting screen in a two slit experiment, the particle was therefore somewhere in R3 at any previous t ≤ t′ .
Physics with exotic probability theory
Given some initial knowledge such as At with A ⊂ X , the exotic probability to arrive at some B ⊂ X at some later time t′′ is given by (At → Bt′′ ) = Zx∈X for any time t′ with t ≤ t′ ≤ t′′ .
Physics with exotic probability theory
At any rate, the system arrives at a stable state, following its evolution in time.
