In gay and brilliant plumage dress'd;

And in his pigeon he took such pride,
That his joy to others he needs must confide.

On the Persistence of Homogeneous Matter
Since there are at most |Q|2 pairs of tuples in Q × Q, and the input has a length greater than |Q|2 , by the pigeon hole principle we have (sl , ql ) = (sm , qm ) for some 1 ≤ l < m ≤ r.
Generalized Counters and Reversal Complexity
By the pigeon hole principle, there exists i < j such that f (wi ) = f (w j ).
Finite covers of random 3-manifolds
If q = o(n), the pigeon-hole principle ensures that at least one of these components traps the walk for a time of order n.
Trapping in the random conductance model
GAP i=1 kigi | − nKi ≤ ki ≤ nKi}, and because |nQ| ≤ nrN = nO(1) , the pigeon-hole i qixi takes some value in nQ with probability n−O(1) .
Circular law for random discrete matrices of given row sum
The pigeon-hole principal is about forgetting all the structure but cardinality, the dimension of algebraic extensions of ﬁelds is deﬁned by forgetting the ﬁeld structure on the larger ﬁeld, keeping only the linear structure etc.
