In science:
If x is a homogenous quadratic element of a standard presentation of I , φλ,µ(x) is proportional to x, so J (φλ,µ (x)) is proportional to φλ,µ(J (x)) and therefore belongs to φλ,µ(I ).

The total number of spins available for this will be proportional to B , hence the transition rates should also be proportional to B and independent of L.
Magnetization reversal times in the 2D Ising model
For this one should notice ﬁrst of all that for M -values on the plateau exp(βF (M )) is proportional to 1/L, because the number of ways a pair of interfaces may be placed such that the average magnetization equals M , is proportional to L.
Magnetization reversal times in the 2D Ising model
The mass of this vector ﬁeld is proportional to the length of the string (since the energy or mass of a string is proportional to its length), i.e. to the distance between the i-th and j -th branes.

And a simple computation shows that the proportion of visited sites from which a 0-transition is possible but does not take place ﬁts exactly with the proportion of visited sites from which the ﬁrst (and unique) transition is a 1-transition; so µ(ν1 > 0 and ν2 > 0) = 0.
