As the central gas cools and loses pressure support, the weight of the surrounding gas compresses it, causing it to flow inward in a “cooling flow” (Fabian 1994 and references therein).
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
In our following discussions, for simplicity and without losing any generalization, the weight on links is dissimilar weight with wij ∈ [1, ∞) if not mentioned.

More precisely, they showed that a simple game is weighted ma jority game if no sequence of winning coalitions up to the length 22n losing coalitions by exchanging players.
Weighted and Roughly Weighted Simple Games
Coalitions whose total weight is > 112 are winning. • Coalitions whose total weight is < 112 are losing.

If G has a losing coalition of cardinality n − 2, then G is a roughly weighted game.
Weighted and Roughly Weighted Simple Games

Rough weightedness allows just one value of the threshold q = 1 (after normalization), where coalitions of weight 1 can be both losing and winning.

Instead of just single threshold value we may allow values of thresholds from a certain interval [1, a] to possess this property, that is, coalitions whose weight is between 1 and a can be both winning or losing.
