In science:

In section 3 we formulate our main results for random walking single and multiple shocks, proofs are given in section 4. A different model, the branching coalescing random walk is investigated in section 5.
Random walk of second class particles in product shock measures
In Section 2, we will study the discrete time models I(D), II(D) and the statement of main results in this section appears at Section 2.2.
Emergence in Random Noisy Environments
After we introduce the general extension in the next section, we then proceed to explore two prototypical 2 → J ′ = 3 systems—the J = 1 2 transition, leading to the “Sisyphus” cooling mechanism, and the J = 1 → J ′ = 2 transition—in Section III and Section IV, respectively.
Scattering theory of multilevel atoms interacting with arbitrary radiation fields
In the two sections that follow, we address our discussants’ points regarding ways to pair clusters (Section 2) and the costs and benefits of designand model-based estimation (Section 3).
Rejoinder: Matched Pairs and the Future of Cluster-Randomized Experiments
In Section 3, based on the conclusions about Schur multipliers proved in Section 5-7, we apply the approach of to prove trivialization of small, non-abelian, group valued cocycles over partially hyperbolic abelian algebraic acrion described in Section 2.2.
Local Rigidity of Partially Hyperbolic Actions
In Section 4 we discuss our model photometry, and our stellar mass estimates are detailed in Section 5. A discussion of the ensemble properties of SLACS lenses, including comparison with ‘twin’ galaxies from the SDSS, is given in Section 6 before concluding with a summary of the final SLACS dataset in Section 7.

Roughly speaking, W can be considered as the space of local sections that can be continued as sections of a (non-commutative) D-module, instead of sections of a line bundle over a curve.

Roughly speaking, W can be considered as the space of local sections that can be continued as sections of a (noncommutative) D-module, instead of sections of a line bundle over a curve.

In this section, we explain how to transform the explicit solutions of the linear equation (7) obtained in the previous section, into super- and sub- solutions of the non-linear convolution equation of Section 2.
Survival probability of the branching random walk killed below a linear boundary
In this section, we will review the core algorithm, Section III A, and the processing of the output of the algorithm to extract samples from the posterior PDF which can then be used for parameter estimation, Section III B.

This section and all of the subsequent sections up to and including Section 14 will be devoted to the proof of the assertion of Case 2 set forth at the beginning of Section 9.

In this section, we first state a definition and then two lemmas in Section 2.1, from which we show the proof of Theorem 1.6 in Section 2.2.
Restricted Eigenvalue Conditions on Subgaussian Random Matrices
J is regular at all S 1–invariant holomorphic sections, so the gluing theorem shows that any ˜J is regular at any holomorphic section sufficiently close (in the Gromov-Floer topology) to a broken section involving an S 1 –invariant section.

Finally in Section V we explain the geometrical and mechanical coordination numbers and how to measure them in Section V.A, and we conclude in Section VI.
