The operations △ and ▽ have a queueing-theoretic interpretation, which we will make strong use of when we make the connection with the Robinson-Schensted correspondence in the next section.
A path-transformation for random walks and the Robinson-Schensted correspondence
But ﬁnding a spike at the correct scale is not enough to make sure it is not a spurious noise artifact, we have to follow it across scales to make sure that it scales appropriately.
On Optimal Detection of Point Sources in CMB Maps
There are |Im (B )| interpretations of a that make E ∪ K true; of these at least 1 − δ make “F (a)” true.
By making M suﬃciently large and making Db suﬃciently long and skinny, we can make ||f − fD ||A∗ arbitrarily large even while making ||∇f ||A arbitrarily small.
In cases with some neutrino mass degeneracy (inverse hierarchy or degenerate) and making the reasonable assumption that the leptonic K¨ahler matrices K L , K e and K ν can be written as perturbations of the identity, K φ = I + ∆φ , we can make a different type of expansion, in ﬁrst orden of the perturbations ∆φ .

We apply the Arrow-forcing Theorem to ﬁnd an even starting position that makes arr(x, t) = −1 if x > 0 and t ≤ t0 − tmax (x) or x < 0 and t > t0 − tmax (x) and makes arr(x, t) = −1 otherwise.
Deterministic Random Walks on the Integers
Therefore, by shrink the length of the curves in C over which we translate, i.e. by making r (and hence ǫr ) small enough, we can make ||y − φr,t (y )|| arbitrarily small.
