For all its thicket and the nightingales
That should have earned it. No one was to blame
To name a thing beloved man sometimes fails.

Every name on earth, in heaven;

The strategy for deducing the existence of an H -invariant torus (namely, G−1 (Tn 0 )) from that of a K -invariant torus (namely, Tn 0 ) is to show that β vanishes on some subset of large measure in some parameter space (in some cases, the frequency α cannot be fixed and needs to be varied).

Generic tokens present a problem for tree building since they represent a set of subtokens. A normal tree building action with single node name will not suffice for a generic token, e.g., replacing ‘+’ with dualop in the above production, there is no single node name that will be correct in all cases.

Remark 2.9. G has a good decomposition in either of the cases: (i) G is linear, namely a definable, in M , subgroup of some GL(n, K ), or (ii) G is algebraic, namely of the form H (K )0 for some algebraic group H defined over K .

In this way, the pool of names serves as some fixed-size ‘collective memory’ of the set of suitable names for children and their relative frequencies.
Random copying in space
At any given time, each of the M names in the pool has an equal chance of being the next one to be sampled, and thus to replace some name in the pool.
Random copying in space
In the baby name example, this would correspond to there being some rate at which a completely new name is invented and introduced to the pool, again replacing an instance of an existing name.

Several years later Kovalevsky introduced the name HIPPARCOS as an acronym for the final satellite, based on the TYCHO/Option A. I had preferred TYCHO which I still considered to be a proper name for an ESA astrometric satellite.
