    • n divi-divi The native and commercial name of Cæsalpinia coriaria and its pods. The pods, which are about 2 inches long by 3/4 inch broad, and curled in a remarkable manner, are exceedingly astringent, containing a large proportion of tannic and gallic acid, and are for this reason much used by tanners and dyers. The plant is a native of tropical America.
    • n divi-divi A name given to the similar pods of C. tinetoria, which are used in Lima for making ink.

In science:

If KX is Q-Cartier, we define the discrepancy of ν as: a(ν ) = multE (cid:0)KY − f ∗KX (cid:1) Note that, because f is birational, k(X ) = k(Y ); in the formula, it is understood that KY = divY ω .
Hypergeometric Equations and Weighted Projective Spaces
I ψ(B ) (ψ(B )) = 1, divI ψ(B ) (z) = 0 for all z ∈ Zd \ ψ(B ), and 1/(I ψ(B ) , I ψ(B ) )Zd = cap(ψ(B )), cf. (2.17), (2.18).
Random walk on a discrete torus and random interlacements
Essentially, J has to redirect some of the charges (divI ∗)1S left by I ∗ on the set S , such that these charges become uniformly distributed on the torus, and the energy dissipated by J has to decay as N tends to infinity.
Random walk on a discrete torus and random interlacements
J (x) + (divI ∗)1S (x) = −N −d , for any x ∈ T, and |J |∞ ≤ c(M )N 1−d .
Random walk on a discrete torus and random interlacements
The task is to construct a flow J distributing the charges (divI ∗)1S uniformly on T, observing that we want the estimate (3.12) to hold.
Random walk on a discrete torus and random interlacements
The purpose of K is to redirect the charges (divI ∗)1S , in such a way that the magnitude of the resulting charge at any given point is then bounded by c(M )N −d , hence decreased by a factor of N −1 , cf. (3.16).
