By signature and rank of diagram Σ we mean the signature and the rank of the matrix G(Σ). A Coxeter diagram Σ is called el liptic if the matrix G(Σ) is positive deﬁnite. A connected Coxeter diagram Σ is called parabolic if the matrix G(Σ) is degenerate, and any subdiagram of Σ is elliptic.

The diagram D8 extends to the diagram eE8 in two different ways, and we obtain four non-elementary diagrams shown in the right column of Table 2. 4.

Diagrams M1 and M2 (which appear with a factor of two) are known in the theory of superconductivity as the Aslamasov-Larkin diagrams and in mesoscopics as the Altshuler-Shklovskii diagrams.

U is called an S IK diagram of E ′ and E if the left-half Y ← eY → Km(A) is a Shioda-Inose diagram over U , and the right-half Km(A) ← eA → A is the Kummer diagram of E ′ and E over U .
Transcendental lattices and supersingular reduction lattices of a singular \$K3\$ surface
To avoid the overcounting of the diagrams, one must note that, expressing Σ in terms of double lines, some diagrams of Σ with single lines will become “obsolete.” For example, in Fig. 8, there is no double line counterpart of the fourth diagram of Σ in Fig. 7.
Diffusion Processes on Small-World Networks with Distance-Dependent Random-Links
Following this argument, one can understand that the higher-order single-link (or one-cumulant) diagrams dominate the small-p limit behavior of the self-energy since the ﬁrst-order, single-cross, diagram does not depend on the GF, while all the other single-link diagrams do.
Diffusion Processes on Small-World Networks with Distance-Dependent Random-Links
Since this divergent contribution is the only difference between this diagram and the diagram in Fig. 9(a), the higher-order diagrams will dominate the small p behavior.
