In science:

The classification procedure can be extended to an arbitrary number of groups, but, just to keep the notation as simple as possible, we will assume that we have just two groups.
The random Tukey depth
The crucial point in this toy model is the following : by computing correlation functions with just the same rules as in [1, 2, 3], the “ordinary vectors” do just the same job as the “sophisticated bivectors” : they violate Bell’s inequalities.

Basing these on |G| rather than just G is likely to lead to an extension of most of the known finite theory to locally finite graphs, just as in Sections 4.1–2.
Locally finite graphs with ends: a topological approach
For developing AccRel further, it is a distinct possibility to adopt the methods of the works just quoted to the framework of AccRel (extended with first-order logic sorts to treat second-order logic ob jects, just like in Henkin-style second-order logic).

By these consideration we can conclude that the approach where the GPU is used just as a simple coprocessor it is not the best one (for example wrapping just some kernelfunctions, such as FFT), because the host/device IO can dramatically reduce performance respect to what these new technologies can express.
