Beware of growing slack?

But many a gallant gentleman
Lay gasping on the ground.

It is a fanning wind, whereby
I am unchaff'd of vanity.

Or held by slack and yielding hand,
Lead on to woes oft undivulg'd,
To crimes unknown, throughout the land?

Warn doughty Willie o' Gorrinbery."

In science:
Column 2 gives the corresponding values of the slack variables corresponding to the ith test, as returned by the constraints (7) and (8) of No-LiPo – here (f (x))+ denotes the function max{f (x), 0}.
Non-adaptive Group Testing: Explicit bounds and novel algorithms
Column 8(b) then computes the product of column 5 with the difference of the entries in column 7 from those of column 8(a), i.e., the expected change in the value of the slack variable ηi (.).
Non-adaptive Group Testing: Explicit bounds and novel algorithms
The function ∆π measures the slack in the subadditivity constraints: ∆π(x, y) = π(x) + π(y) − π(x ⊕ y).
Equivariant Perturbation in Gomory and Johnson's Infinite Group Problem
For each observation (xi , yi ) in the training set T we introduce a slack variable ξi ≥ 0 measuring the degree to which the i-th inequality/constraint in (4) is not met.
Optimal diagnostic tests for sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease based on support vector machine classification of RT-QuIC data
We then relax the i-th inequality to yi (wT xi + b) + ξi ≥ 1, and add the term C Pi ξi to the ob jective function, where C ≥ 0, which has the purpose of pushing the slack variables to zero.
Optimal diagnostic tests for sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease based on support vector machine classification of RT-QuIC data
As C increases, the optimal hyperplane will misclassify fewer observations, and for large enough C the hyperplane will ﬁt as tightly as possible to minimise the sum of the slacks.
Optimal diagnostic tests for sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease based on support vector machine classification of RT-QuIC data
If the problem is separable, then the ξi s will be forced to zero by the minimisation, thus removing the slack variables and recovering the original problem.

The reasons rely on this fact: theorem 1 provides only quite slack bounds for the structure of OSCs of catalysts when marginal Hilbert space of entanglement catalysts have high dimensions.

This condition is called the complementary slackness condition.

Ultimately all quantum numbers have to be conserved but at each step, when the Grand Canonical limit is reached, the system can temporarily “pick up the slack”.
What's Interesting About Strangeness Production? - An Overview of Recent Results
Predictably, the dependence is slack and is completely determined by the level hierarchy in dots, and also by the number of electrons.
On the current gap of single-electron transistors
There are two types of links between reptons: the slack links connect two successive reptons in the same cell and the taut links those in neighboring cells. A repton can hop to a neigboring cell if it does not leave an empty cell behind.
Exact Solution for a 1-dimensional model for Reptation
Thus the dimension d becomes a parameter and the links are characterised by a 3-valued variable: yi = 0 for a slack link, yi = 1 for a taut link in the direction of the ﬁeld and yi = −1 for a taut link opposite to the ﬁeld.
Exact Solution for a 1-dimensional model for Reptation
The parameter d inﬂuences the ratio of slack to taut links, but not the universal properties of the chain e.g. the exponents by which the renewal time and the drift velocity depend on the chain length.
Exact Solution for a 1-dimensional model for Reptation
The 0 and ± state are both mapped on a slack link yi = 0.
