Has borne him past his distance, as a steed,
The nostrils filling out with snorting hiss,
Tears up the ground before he checks his speed.

Seek out some lonely shade, despair, and die!"

Sprinkling his music about the meadows,
Whistles and little checks and coos,
And the tinkle of glassy bells;

(Though doubtful whether he stayed to see).

Grasping and gripping tensely, with desperate finger tips,
Something that writhed and wriggled under her dainty frock.

In science:

Without changing any physics, ψout is multiplied by by exp[iπ ˜Φ] for convenience. The simplest way to check them is to use Eq.(4.5)). M.
Paraxial propagation of a quantum charge in a random magnetic field
Of course, additional independent study will be necessary to check the form of Γt (r) given by Eq. (8) and to find out whether the values for µ and A considered here are good estimates of the real values .
I. Territory covered by N random walkers on deterministic fractals. The Sierpinski gasket
The local dynamics depends only on the value of the NS B field, so that S-duality can be described as mapping B → −∗h′ (B ) (it is straightforward to check that out an error in an earlier version of this paper.
OM Theory in Diverse Dimensions
This prescription indeed yields the structure of a VOA. (It is not a trivial exercise, though, to check that this works out.) This example has an important generalization.
Conformal field theory, boundary conditions and applications to string theory
The validity of these formulae is numerically checked and the physical consequences, e.g., for the current flowing through small tunnel junctions, are pointed out.
Broad distribution effects in sums of lognormal random variables
Precise checks of the predictions of the Standard Model have not found any contradictions between the theory and experiment, coming out of three standard deviations, what is quite satisfactory since, as L.B.
String Theory or Field Theory?
It checks the clauses one by one if they are satisfied until it either runs out of clauses (this means the assignment was satisfying, the algorithm stops and outputs YES) or it finds a clause C that is not satisfied.
Quantum random walks - an introductory overview
This topic was also discussed in [KO]. 2 It should be pointed out that the “old approach” of 1993 is also correct: we were able to directly check all the claims of [Ke1].
Kerov's central limit theorem for the Plancherel measure on Young diagrams
As Dyson pointed out, the general idea is to chose the most random model within the imposed symmetries and to check if the theoretical predictions agree with the experiment, a disagreement pointing out that an important symmetry of the problem has been neglected.

This produces a series of normal modes where the eccentricity propagation is affected only by pressure and is therefore expected to be retrograde. A WKB analysis of the expression was also carried out to act as a check on the numerical method.
