In science:

The unshaded region of the diagram indicates the intrinsic colour range of interest, which is the range of intrinsic colour that M EAD works on.
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
Applying this spread results in the luminosity class sequences changing from lines to bands in colour-colour and colour-magnitude space.
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
For Munari et al. (2005) models altering metallicity has little effect on IPHAS colour-colour diagrams, a shown by Fig. 4.
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
It is very important to note that, in the IPHAS colour-colour plane, the reddening vector is at a signi ficant angle with respect to the majority of the main sequence (see Fig. 6).
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
This property of the IPHAS colour-colour plane is a result of the strong intrinsic (r ′ − i′ ) colour sensitivity of the (r ′ − Ha) colour, whilst its response to reddening is weak compared to that of broad-band colours.
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
This is , however, not a trivial task, as the different luminosity class sequences behave very similarly on the IPHAS colour-colour plane.
High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
Extinction, intrinsic colour and distance are determined simultaneously for all objects in the intrinsic colour range of interest given in Figs. 2 and 3.

High Spatial Resolution Galactic 3D Extinction Mapping with IPHAS
Indeed, since we are using relatively few colours, it is possible to choose an initial colouring from which there is no Glauber move i.e. we do not claim that the chain is ergodic, see Section 5 for examples of blocked colourings.
Randomly colouring simple hypergraphs
The colour i is shown as red, colour 1 is blue, and colour v + k − t is purple.
Disjoint Hamilton cycles in the random geometric graph
When we speak of missing colours, we count them with multiplicities: if a v has no edge of colour i in G (i.e. two edges of colour i join v to L) then colour i is missing at v with multiplicity 2.
Disjoint Hamilton cycles in the random geometric graph
We will use a greedy colouring procedure to assign the missing colours to the edges of H , and thereby complete the desired edge colouring of G.
Disjoint Hamilton cycles in the random geometric graph
The procedure assigns the missing colours to uncoloured edges of H incident with ∗, greedily sub ject to rule (i), and the order of treatment of the colours is determined at the start as follows: colours that already appear on more edges are treated earlier.
Disjoint Hamilton cycles in the random geometric graph
As in the case of even k , we must assign all the missing colours to the edges of H with the same requirements as before on the non-match colours, but also the match colour must induce a matching in H .
Disjoint Hamilton cycles in the random geometric graph
Therefore we may simply obtain the edge colouring of H (cid:48) from the algorithm used for even k applied to H (cid:48) , and then restrict this colouring to H to obtain a colouring that satisfies the desired properties.
