In science:
Although it might be easy to ﬁnd the two steady states and the limit cycle by studying the agent based model and not its algebraic representation, one would still need to prove that these are the only ﬁxed points and that there is exactly one limit cycle of length 2, and no limit cycles of greater length.

We give a general local central limit theorem for the sum of two independent random variables, one of which satisﬁes a central limit theorem while the other satisﬁes a local central limit theorem with the same order variance.

T Σ−1v ]θ2(cid:9) E (e−θY |X = x) = exp (cid:8)−[ν + vT Σ−1 (x − µ)]θ + 1 converges to a positive limit as m, n → ∞, since because of the value of θ the difference between the large terms in ν and τ 2 converges to a ﬁnite limit, and the other terms also converge to ﬁnite limits.
