In science:

The derivation is based on an adaptation, using coupling, of the regeneration argument of Sznitman-Zerner.
A law of large numbers for random walks in random mixing environments
In , a coupling technique was introduced that immediately allows one to adapt the construction of regeneration times to the case of measures P which are L-dependent, that is such that coordinates of the environment at distance larger than L, some fixed deterministic L, are independent.
A law of large numbers for random walks in random mixing environments
One then is reduced to the study of tails of these regeneration times.
A law of large numbers for random walks in random mixing environments
The statement of our fundamental result, Theorem 3.12, involves certain modified regeneration times, which are introduced in Section 2 below.

We also learnt of , where the authors use the regeneration times to prove a result very similar to our theorem 3.
The Point of View of the Particle on the Law of Large Numbers for Random Walks in a Mixing Random Environment
However, they require moment controls on the regeneration times, which we do not need in our approach.

The cusp regeneration case predicts Mdef ≃ 2.7mBH for mBH = 109 M⊙ , and clearly underestimates the mass deficit observed in massive ‘core’ galaxies, hMdef i ≃ 10 mBH .
