In science:

Then P (1) = 0 = P (−1) so P ∈ P , and P has critical points only at −1 and ζ , so every Rolle’s domain must contain either −1 or ζ .
On minimal Rolle's domains for complex polynomials
The entirety of the proof will take place over the field Z/QZ, and so terminology such as “linearly independent”, “span”, “dimension”, “rank” and so forth will always be with respect to the field Z/QZ.
On the singularity probability of discrete random matrices
In view of the two-to-one homomorphism between SL(2, C ) and SO(3, 1) alluded to earlier, Lℓ , Lr ∈ SO(3, 1) define respective Jones matrices Jℓ , Jr of unit determinant; these Jones matrices are unique except for multiplicative factor ±1 and, as is well known, this signature ambiguity is of nontrivial origin.
Non-quantum entanglement and a complete characterization of pre-Mueller and Mueller matrices in polarization optics
Note that while it is possible, and common, to choose m in with the added feature that γ is also absolutely continuous with respect to m, and that ρ(s; R \ {0}) > 0 on a set of s ∈ S of full measure m, we shall not require this and so shall not do so.
High level excursion set geometry for non-Gaussian infinitely divisible random fields
If we integrate (29) between 0 and x′ < x, we find τη (x′ )Uη (x′ ) ≤ 2 Z x′ 0 Z β (y)Uη (y)κ(z , y) dy dz ≤ 2 Z x 0 Z β (y)Uη (y)κ(z , y) dy dz and so for all x fη (x) ≤ 2 Z x 0 Z β (y)Uη (y)κ(z , y) dy dz .
Eigenelements of a General Aggregation-Fragmentation Model
Now the estimate in (108) will suffice up to k ≤ εLn and so we only need to make ξ close enough to 1/2 so that γ < εL (which depends only on d and not γ ).
Maximum Matchings in Random Bipartite Graphs and the Space Utilization of Cuckoo Hashtables
So by Proposition 1.11(a) and Lemma 1.21, (Li , H ∩ Li ) is a finite dimensional admissible simple Lie algebra and so using the first part of the proof, we get that H ∩ Li is a maximal toral subalgebra of Li .
Locally finite admissible simple Lie algebras
And the P H (0) i < 0 case could be easily obtained from the P H (0) i > 0 case: indeed, assuming P H (0) i < 0 we effectively only make a t → −t transform, so we will have the same, but time-reversed results, such as, “standard singularity → Kasner” turns into “Kasner → recollapse” and so on.
The dynamics of the flat anisotropic models in the Lovelock gravity. I: The even-dimensional case
We prefer to avoid unnecessary abstraction and technical detail, so we frame the standing assumption that all random variables are sufficiently regular that we are justified in computing expectations, interchanging limits, and so forth.
User-friendly tail bounds for sums of random matrices
At each step, at most r vertices in Γ(t) change their degree and so L changes by O(1/n). L starts out at r(r − 2) and so at some time it becomes equal to O(n−1/3 ).
Component structure of the vacant set induced by a random walk on a random graph
At this point the rotor is in its initial position, and each principal branch has received a particle once from ι, so the process repeats using e2 (Ti ), and so on, and we deduce e(T ) = X Pb i=1 e(Ti ) as required in this case.
Rotor walks on general trees
In the following, for the sake of conciseness, we will often denote emax (L, ν ), Vlα,l′ α′ (L, ν ), and so on simply by emax , Vlα,l′ α′ , and so on.
Necessity of Superposition of Macroscopically Distinct States for Quantum Computational Speedup
For simplicity, we will omit ‘ν ’ and ‘(L)’, i.e., we will abbreviate ˆA′ (L), |ψν (L)i, Cν (L) and so on to ˆA′ , |ψi, C and so on, respectively.
Necessity of Superposition of Macroscopically Distinct States for Quantum Computational Speedup
Now for t′ ∈ T , if f (g , τ t′ ) = g (τ t′ )g−1 = τ t, then τ t′ and τ t have the same centralizer in G0 (namely T0) and so g normalizes T0 and so T .
Simple groups admit Beauville structures
In a weak ω -groupoid, by contrast, we do not expect strict associativity, and so we may have multiple composition maps for each shape of pasting diagram; but we do demand that these composites agree up to cel ls of the next dimension, and that these associativity cells satisfy coherence laws of their own, and so on.
