In science:

So far we have assumed that the graded completions that are associated with all the duo and uniformization limit groups that are constructed along our iterative procedure contain no abelian vertex groups in the abelian decompositions that are associated with their various levels.
Diophantine Geometry over Groups IX: Envelopes and Imaginaries
At this stage we drop this assumption, and consider general duo and uniformization limit groups.
Diophantine Geometry over Groups IX: Envelopes and Imaginaries
We continue with all the (finitely many) Extra resolutions and Extra limit groups of the prescribed structure, that were constructed from the duo resolution, DuoRes, i.e., from the couple of resolutions, M GResu and M GResv .
Diophantine Geometry over Groups IX: Envelopes and Imaginaries
These additional elements do not generally obey the separation of variables that was achieved so far, i.e., it involves the entire duo resolution, DuoRes, that was constructed from the multi-graded resolutions, M GResu and M GResv , and can not be imposed on each of its graded completions separately.
Diophantine Geometry over Groups IX: Envelopes and Imaginaries
Let DuoRes be a duo resolution, that is composed from the two multi-graded resolutions, M GResu and M GResv .
