As they play on with solemn thoughts; and sweet
As running brook passed by the pleasant hours,

Or surely then your heart will break.

It is mandatory for debugging, especially in parallel environments where the number of parallel processes varies from run to run, but another benefit of playing fair is even more important: Fair play guarantees that the quality of a PRNG with respect to an application does not depend on the degree of parallelization.

The first term in the running time bound corresponds to a standard ε-N N query, while the second term is parametrized by the size of O(ε)-N N P (q), which thereby plays the role of a condition number measuring the discrepancy in difficulty between the exact and approximate N N queries on a given instance.
