First, a C -minimal tiling is a tiling since the parallelepiped (P (C )) is a compact pile of cubes.

Since particles cannot pile up in this model, there is no strongly catalytic regime (i.e., bλp = 0).
Intermittency in a catalytic random medium
We indicate the cut off in the upper left region where we should not believe results as they pile up near the w(z ≫ 1) ≥ 0 boundary.
Is Dark Energy Dynamical? Prospects for an Answer
To solve the problem, we simply excluded the PSF core (inner 5′′ , containing about 35% of the source photons), where the pile up could be signiﬁcant.

Deterministic Random Walks on the Integers
For y ∈ Z and u ∼ y + 1 we have an odd pile at y if and only if arr(y , u) 6= arr(y , u + 2) and in this case arr(y , u) = (−1)iarr(y , 0) for the index i with si (y) = u.
