  • Interesting fact: The Popsicle was invented by 11 year-old Frank Epperson in 1905. He left his drink outside with a stir stick in it and he noticed that it had frozen. He applied for a patent in 1923 and named it "Epsicle." The name was later changed to Popsicle

  • Interesting fact: Frisbee got its name from William Russel Frisbee, who was a pie baker. He used to sell his pies in a thin tin pan, which had Frisbee written on it. When Walter Frederick Morrison thought of the idea of making saucer like disks to play catch, he visited the campus of Yale and noticed people there were using the pie pan to play catch so he therefore renamed his invention to Frisbee

Frobenius-Perron Resonances for Maps with a Mixed Phase Space
Notice that the localization length is asymmetric around the energy of the extended state since it scales as ∼ E at the left and ∼ E 1/2 at the right.
Electron states in a one-dimensional random binary alloy
One can notice that in a sense the Positivity Condition∗ is similar to the condition on the moments of the integer-valued nonnegative random variable.
Determinantal random point fields
Notice that the symmetry constraints of this model are the same as that for the geometrical model of random involutions specified in the Introduction, and notice too the similarity with the model defined by (1.7) and surrounding text.
Correlation functions for random involutions
Notice that the first order elastic constants do not contain a relaxation term; Noticing the stress σ = C1 , this means that the non affine displacement field does not relax the stress.
