In science:

In Eq. (2) frustration comes from competition between the interactions on the one hand, which prefer the spins to be parallel, and the random fields on the other, which prefer the spins to follow the local field direction.
Computer Science in Physics
By [25, 35] there is also an action of CBW (w) on H i c (Xw , Qℓ) (this comes from an action of the positive braids in CBW (w) on Xw ).
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
We have a partition NG = ⊔χN χ G where χ runs over the characters ZG −→ k∗ and N χ G consists of all (c, F ) ∈ NG such that the ZG action on F (coming from the G-equivariance of F ) is via χ on each fibre of F .

Also, the variability of Hα emission on timescales as short as twenty years argues against its usefuleness as a disc indicator (it is unlikely that the discs themselves could be coming and going on these timescales).
Evidence for high accretion-rates in Weak-Line T Tauri stars?
So far there has been little attention paid to this problem by statisticians, although on the one hand it is an important statistical problem coming up in modern physics, and on the other hand it is “just” a classical nonparametric statistical inverse prob lem.

Automorphisms and abstract commensurators of 2-dimensional Artin groups
Based on the results of this Sect. and on Figs. 4 and 17, we confirm that, with almost no exception, the combined SWIRE-Chandra sources are dominated in X-rays by AGN emission. A dominant fraction of the XRB itself is then proven to come from AGNs.

In the vicinity of the phase boundary line on which one of three gaps vanishes, i.e., ∆2 = 0, there comes out a rather complicated structure which is not robust but strongly depends on a choice of the coupling strength.

It comes with b : Y ′ ∪ X ′′ → X , defined to be the identity on X ′′ , and the projection on Y ′ . X ′ is cal led the blowup locus of b : eXφ → X.

Gi denotes the unique element of Gi lying on the path [[e, v ]] (in words, v ↑ is the parent of v in the Galton–Watson tree G), and the factor b−L comes from the fact that each term π(x)(h(x) − h(y ))2 is counted at most bL times in the sum on the right-hand side.
