But Lord Gough ordered the troops to commence the battle,
With sixty big guns that loudly did rattle.

And with wild battle-cries they attacked them vigorously;
And with one determined rush they ascended the hill,
And drove the Boers from their position sore against their will.
"The Battle of Glencoe" by William Topaz McGonagall
It appears he had a notion that his "breeding" and his "culture"
Would assure him some position as a sort of country squire;
And he built a little chalet in a pretty, fern-clad valley,
And prepared to squire it nobly in imported farm attire.
"Toolangi" by C J Dennis
Then with a ringing cheer, and at the word of command,
They bounded after their leaders, and made a bold stand;
And, dashing across the open ground with their officers at their head,
They drove the enemy from their position without any dread.

Meanwhile, on the enemy's strong position Lord Roberts launched an attack,
And from their position they could hardly be driven back
Because the Afghans were hid amongst the woods and hills,
Still with undaunted courage, the British blood thrills.

In that case, for a positive starting point x0 ≥ 0 we obtain the δ -dimensional Bessel process as the unique solution of Eq. (5.7), which stays positive and which is reﬂected to the positive half line at zero.
One-dimensional Stochastic Differential Equations with Generalized and Singular Drift
We say an operator A is semi-positive (or positive) deﬁnite if its corresponding matrix A is semi-positive (or positive) deﬁnite, that is, hu|ρ|ui ≥ 0 for |ui ∈ H (or hu|ρ|ui ≥ 0 for |ui ∈ H with equality only for |ui = 0).
Quantum Computation and Quantum Information
An aﬃne root γ is positive if γ is positive on σ . A positive aﬃne root is simple if Hγ deﬁnes a co dimension 1 facet of σ .

This is impossible since conjugation of a positive complex structure (one for which the associated symmetric quadratic form is positive deﬁnite) produces another positive complex structure.

Another shufﬂe that was studied in the early days, is the tran sposing neighbors shufﬂe, where at each time a position i ∈ [n − 1] in the deck is chosen uniformly and the card in that position is switched with the card in position i + 1 with probability 1/2.
Mixing times for the interchange process
We say that T is positive if T ∧ ϕ is a positive Radon measure for every form ϕ of bidegree (p, p) on M which is strongly positive.

It is worth noting that the set of positive maps is a convex set and can be described by its ‘extremal points’, in our case ‘extremal maps’. A positive map h is said to be extremal, when for any decomposition h = h1 + h2 , where h1 and h2 are positive maps, hi = λih, where λi ≥ 0 and λ1 + λ2 = 1.

Moreover, it is positive, i.e., it maps positive operators to positive operators.
A positive formalism for quantum theory in the general boundary formulation
Though θ = π/4 spreads the distribution wide in position space, but the amplitude of the particle is largely concentrated on a small number of position space which are at the extreme points in the position space.

First let us remind some well-known deﬁnitions and statements. A matrix A is called non-negative (positive), if all its elements aij are nonnegative (positive). A nonnegative matrix A is called primitive if there exists such a natural number m, that the matrix Am is positive.

One can deﬁne a positive element p of an operator algebra as one whose eigenvalues are positive in any representation, or more abstractly by requiring its spectrum (this is deﬁned without appeal to any representation as {λ|(p − λ)−1 /∈ A}) to be contained in the positive real axis.
Large N Gauge Theory -- Expansions and Transitions
First, the contribution from any point in ﬁeld space is positive: by deﬁnition, a positive L must have positive eigenvalues in any representation, and thus tr U (L) (for positive L) will be positive for any U .

In Figure 7, we indicate the number of positive partial sums in each successive linearization of a clockwise arrangement and underscore the positions that end positive partial sums.

All other positions have a non-positive partial sum ending at that position, but partial sums starting after it are positive.
