In science:

Is the same true for other natural conjugacy class functions? We expect that the answer is yes, which can be regarded as a type of “universality” result for the asymptotic description of random elements of GL(n, q) to be given in Subsection 3.1.
Random matrix theory over finite fields: a survey
On the other hand, a factor set ¯f for [E ]g can be defined by ¯f : [v ; c ] 7→ f[v ; g (c )] and then a factor set for (gRes ˙g)([E ]g ) can be given by (f Res ˙g)¯f .

The most restrictive of these axioms is a condition stating that for a pair of D0-branes at points xi and y i , corresponding to diagonal 2 × 2 matrices, the masses of the off-diagonal fields should be given by the geodesic distance between the points xi and y i in the given background metric.
M(atrix) Theory: Matrix Quantum Mechanics as a Fundamental Theory
Let D be a finite graph without loops and multiple edges and suppose all edges are directed, in other words D is a finite set I plus a collection of 2-element subsets of I , each such subset being given as an ordered pair.
Compactifications defined by arrangements I: the ball quotient case
Now let D be given by a system of maps {Di : sA⊗i −→ sA}i≥1 , (where D0 = 0 is assumed,) just like in Lemma 2.3.(b), and rewrite them as mi : A⊗i −→ A given by Di = s ◦ mi ◦ (s−1 )⊗i .
Infinity-Inner-Products on A-Infinity-Algebras
If events of some types are already available unweighted, then a correct mixing of these processes is ensured by putting XWGTUP = XMAXUP(i). A k-factor can be applied to each process by re-scaling the respective XSECUP(i) value at the beginning of the run, but cannot be given individually for each event.

Implementing the quantum random walk
We begin by constructing the interaction term SI (Ω). A natural guess is that the number of integrals in SI (Ω) should be given by the number of faces of the tetrahedron while the degree in Ω should be just the number of edges of the tetrahedron with the arguments labeling the two faces meeting at each edge.
