In science:

This version of the paper uses a different definition of a burl from the journal version of the paper , and a different proof of Lemma 18.
Exponentially many perfect matchings in cubic graphs
We define a burl as a vertex set X ⊆ V (G) such that for any balanced probability distribution M on M(G, X ), E[a(G, X, M)] ≥ 1 3 .
Exponentially many perfect matchings in cubic graphs
Note that if X is a burl, any set Y ⊃ X is also a burl, since any balanced probability distribution on M(G, Y ) induces a balanced probability distribution on M(G, X ).
Exponentially many perfect matchings in cubic graphs
This way, being a burl is really a local property of X and is completely independent of the structure of G|(V (G) \ X ).
Exponentially many perfect matchings in cubic graphs
By definition of a burl, we have E[a(G, Xi , MXi )] ≥ 1 3 for each each 1 ≤ i ≤ k .
