In science:

The notions of C-categories and M-categories are dual concepts so that any definitions made or propositions proved in one of them hold in a dualized version in the other.
The categorical theory of relations and quantizations
Note now that by Lemma 3.1, the set Oδ , defined in (5.9), is a subset of Uδ , and hence (5.10) holds, in particular, for λ in Oδ .
A new application of Random Matrices: Ext(C*_{red}(F_2)) is not a group
In this section at first we show that Nullstellensatz does not hold in infinite dimensional algebraic geometry as well as in infinite dimensional complex analysis.

In fact, the standard conversion between NH and AV , adopting local Galactic dust to gas ratio (which in our case would imply AV = 5 × 10−22NH ≃ 7 mag) generally does not hold in AGNs.

There is also a modality 2 which is used to denote those formulae holding in all states. A state consists in a set of fluents representing the agent’s knowledge in that state.
Logic-Based Specification Languages for Intelligent Software Agents
We observe that in general, the local transformation rules for the pair (g , b) that exist in the physics literature, continue to hold in this setting, even though here neither J nor J ′ needs to be a B-field transform of a generalized complex structure of complex type.
Mirror Symmetry and Generalized Complex Manifolds
As it was argued in Ref. [100], the legitimate stability conditions in the replica limit are those for which isotropy holds in the replica space.

We shall say that an equality holds in the sense of distribution on a measurable set Ω if it holds, once integrated with respect to any C∞,∞c (Ω) functions.
Large deviations and stochastic calculus for large random matrices
Even though originally proven in in the Wigner case, the theorem written below holds in the general case of band random real symmetric (or Hermitian) random matrices (16), (17).

Thus (9.20) holds in the irreducible regular finitary case considered in Lemma 9.7, provided A is one of the sets Si in the partition or a union of such sets.
The phase transition in inhomogeneous random graphs
For background on differentiable functions in (real or complex) Banach spaces, see Cartan ; in particular, as a special case of [32, Theor`eme 4.7.1] (which holds in both the real and complex cases), we have the following.
The phase transition in inhomogeneous random graphs
It follows from [23, Section 2] that all moments of the variables in Theorem 2.1 stay bounded as n → ∞, and thus moment convergence holds in (i) and (ii) and for convergent subsequences in (iii).
Congruence properties of depths in some random trees
The proofs in [23, Section 2] apply to this situation too and show that all moments of the variables in Theorem 2.7 stay bounded as n → ∞, and thus moment convergence holds in (i) and for convergent subsequences in (ii).
Congruence properties of depths in some random trees
