And it must be a decreasing function of α, since the property of being sat is monotone : in order for a formula to be sat, any sub-formula (made with a subset of its clauses) has to be satisﬁable as well.
Theoretical analysis of optimization problems - Some properties of random k-SAT and k-XORSAT
In order for a formula to be satisﬁable, there must be no variable that receive contradictory messages, i.e. which is constrained by some clauses to be true and by some other to be false.
Theoretical analysis of optimization problems - Some properties of random k-SAT and k-XORSAT
If we assume that the ﬁeld on the variable is h > 0, this means that the number m− of clauses that constrain it to be false must be 0, while the number m+ of clauses that constrain it to be true will be positive or null.

In this way, any type of constraint on the matrix can be readily included in the calculation, which could be rather cumbersome in other approaches, based on the introduction of a connectivity tensor as the corresponding constraints have to be written in terms of the tensor elements, which can be extremely complicated.

Since we are assuming that K 0 cannot be reduced, Vranceanu’s conclusion would be that γ i j k = 0. A technical assumption that should be made here is that if p 6= 0, we are considering γ i j k to be a constant torsion coef f icient.

Initially the antenna will be divided in smaller straight segments. Then each straight segment will be considered as an independent dipole and for each one will be given the expression of its radiation pattern. Then, according to the principle of superimposition all the individual radiation patterns will be summed up.

As the result, if the dimension of subsystem on each processor were large enough, the efficiency of VTM might approach p, as predicted in Section 8. Theoretically, the dimension of the sparse linear system being solved by VTM could be arbitrarily-large, and the processors being employed could be arbitrary number.
