Relative Zeta Functions, Determinants, Torsion, Index Theorems and Invariants for Open Manifolds
Until now we have seen that under the hypothesises of 9.1 P − e−t ˜D ′ 2 ˜D ′ = D ′ or ˜D ′ = U ∗ i∗D ′ iU , is a well defined number, independent of t > 0 and hence yields an invariant of the pair (E , E ′ ), still depending on K, K ′ .

Kumar et al. hypothesise that the signature of an emerging Web community contains at least one “core”, which is a complete bipartite sub-graph with at least i vertices from U and j vertices from V .

We may hypothesise, therefore, that the spin cluster boundaries, properly defined, of the q = 3 Potts model are SLE with κ = 10/3.

If radiation was the predominant preheating mechanism, it was hypothesised that the variation would be as the power of 1.5 rather than 0.5.

Still following the familiar pattern, we hypothesise that when T is large, all G2 -instantons over (Y , σT ) arise by this gluing construction.

This space is the event space, and for that new galaxy one can hypothesise the existence of a distribution over the event space, unique to that galaxy, which reflects the similarity of the new galaxy (minus the unknown redshift) to any given point in the event space.

In the standard model, the dark matter, which makes up five sixths of all matter, is hypothesised to be a weakly interacting non-baryonic elementary particle, created in the early stages of cosmic evolution.
Dark matter and cosmic structure
If the dark radiation is composed of a particle with significant interaction, these parameters can take other values (Basbøll et al. 2009), thus allowing us to distinguish between hypothesised species (Trotta & Melchiorri 2005).

One might hypothesise that weak gravitational lensing is one of the main science drivers to shift the emphasis of optical astronomers more towards imaging, in contrast to spectroscopy.
