In science:
The fol lowing are equivalent : (i) the logarithmic ramiﬁcation of OL /OK is bounded by a; (ii) the logarithmic ramiﬁcation of OLj /OK ′ is bounded by ma for one j ∈ J ; (iii) the logarithmic ramiﬁcation of OLj /OK is bounded by a for one j ∈ J .
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields
As a result, the entropy expression does not coincide with the Friedmann equation at the moment when the conjectured bound on the Casimir energy is saturated and the conjectured bound on the Casimir energy does not lead to the Hubble and the Bekenstein entropy bounds.
A Note on the Cardy-Verlinde Formula
We now examine whether the cosmological bound (27) on EC continues to imply the Hubble entropy bound and the Bekenstein bound even for the w 6= 1/n case.
A Note on the Cardy-Verlinde Formula
The cosmological entropy bound for 3This fact can be shown to hold even for the k 6= 1 case by using the generalized expression given in the previous footnote. 4When w = −(n − 1)/n, S is insensitive to variation of EC and, therefore, the conjectured bound (27) on EC does not lead to cosmological entropy bounds.
A Note on the Cardy-Verlinde Formula
Oblivious rounding can be applied to analyses using, e.g., sums of probabilities bounded by Raghavan’s bounds, Hoeffding’s bound, and Markov’s inequality.
Randomized Rounding without Solving the Linear Program
Although the analysis for arbi trary nodes seems out of reach at the present time, we can give two bounds: a lower bound on the size of the neighborhood of one corner from which we still achieve polynomial hitting behavior to the opposite corner and an upper bound on this neighborhood.

Cheeger-Gromov Theory and Applications to General Relativity
It is quite straightforward to prove that if (M , g) is a smooth Riemannian manifold with an L∞ bound on the full curvature, |R| ≤ K then there are local coordinate systems in which the metric is C 1,α or L2,p , with bounds depending only on K and a lower volume bound, cf.
Cheeger-Gromov Theory and Applications to General Relativity
If dn is bounded above, then with probability bounded away from 0, in a bounded number of steps the walk can get to a position where Esn′ > c > 0.
Random walks that avoid their past convex hull
Because (1.3) means |flin (Lc )| = 1, this upper bound on L translates to the upper bound ǫ ≤ 1 (as already an estimate went into (1.4) the bound is rather ǫ ≤ O(1)).

Given the bound on the second moment of our test function from the previous section, and the bound on the eigenvalue from section 2.2, it is straightforward to derive a lower bound on the mixing time.
