In poetry:

They will curse the generation
That has beggared them by stealth;
Curse the mad procrastination
That has robbed the land of wealth -
Wealth their foolish fathers spent,
Reckless and improvident.
"In Time" by C J Dennis
He who hath little shall not lack;

Our fathers went; we pass away;
Our children follow on our track:
So generations fail, and so
They are renewed, and come and go.

We saw a generation pass while side by side we sat:
Another starts its march to-day-without us, Father Pat.

In essence we create and use directed graphs of movement. Fundamentally two mobility choices exist for the experimentation of the simulator: a) generational mobility and b) real path mobility. In generational mobility we generate the paths used by nodes over a period of time.

The mapping class group is finitely generated, so any choice of generating set A gives rise to a word metric on G, and any two different choices of finite generating set give quasi-isometric word metrics.
Random Heegaard splittings
In this case the canonical generating variety is not very efficient; the smallest generating varieties are the minuscule generating varieties Pn ⊂ LG . (ii) Type Cn , n ≥ 1 (type A1 is best thought of as type C1 in this context).

We have described this as a process generating a random natural extension, but we can also think of it as a growth process, growing a causal set by adding one new maximal element at each step: the process always generates the same infinite causal set P , but the order in which the elements are generated is random.
Order-invariant measures on causal sets

In particular, if N is generated by k elements, then it can be viewed as a quotient of Ak , the free module of rank k , and CB-rk(N ) coincides with the Cantor-Bendixson rank of N inside the space QuoA (Ak ) of finitely generated A-modules over k marked generators.

We state the generating hypothesis in the homotopy category of G-spectra for a compact Lie group G and prove that if G is finite, then the generating hypothesis implies the strong generating hypothesis, just as in the non-equivariant case.
