In science:

Since the 1- and 2-body matrix elements are proportional to Np and Np (Np − 1) respectively, scaling allows all coefficients in (5) to be Gaussian random numbers of unit variance.
Ground State Properties of Many-Body Systems in the Two-Body Random Ensemble and Random Matrix Theory
Np(Np − 1), We will consider Np = 16, which is typical for a heavy collective nucleus, and the distribution for the ground state energy is obtained numerically.
Ground State Properties of Many-Body Systems in the Two-Body Random Ensemble and Random Matrix Theory
Np (λ) = {q ∈ V : νp−q (λ) > 1 − λ}, and the strong neighborhood system for V is the union Sp∈V Np where Np = {Np(λ) : λ > 0}.
Some results in Generalized \v{S}erstnev spaces
Furthermore, Np admits a countable filter base given by {Np (1/n) : n ∈ N}, hence the strong neighborhood system is first-numerable.
Translation-invariant generalized topologies induced by probabilistic norms
We see that it negligibly depends on the chemical composition Np/Nn , where Np and Nn are the number densities of protons and neutrons.
