Ever disturb.

Bears farther off from Babylon
A heart that cannot break!

And darkly dream the Land of Light
Is drawing near, night after night;
Where I shall reach my Rest at last,
And smile at all the troubles past.

In science:
In the ﬁrst case the succeeding step can only be a rise, so the path has odd length and one more oddnumbered step than even-numbered steps.
Path counting and random matrix theory
Hence the pair formed by the ﬁrst and last maximal sequences of level steps at level 0 has exactly as many odd-numbered steps as even-numbered steps.
Path counting and random matrix theory
The lattice is discretized into steps of unit length (a step size corresponding to a codon step), while the particles are of integer size q ≥ 1.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
Steps (2) and (3) are then repeated a large number of times (usually called Monte Carlo steps, or MC steps).
Simple models of protein folding and of non--conventional drug design
The critical identity is Theorem 1.1, which rewrites the C (k , l) in terms of a k-step conditioned random walk with steps that are Poisson random variables minus one, and where the parameter of the Poisson steps varies with time.
Counting Connected Graphs Asymptotically
After step n, perform another n steps, but now with the segments either vertical (weight unity) or left diagonal (weight β2n+1−j in step n + j ).
Counting formulas associated with some random matrix averages
An analogous argument holds for s = n, except that at the last step of the algorithm there is a vertical step, so a path producing an independent relation cannot have a vertical step at its end.
Sylvester-t' Hooft generators of sl(n) and sl(n|n), and relations between them
For t > 0 let inf(y , t) denote the “inﬂuence” of a Propp step of a single chip at distance y with t linear steps remaining (compared to a linear step).
Deterministic Random Walks on the Integers
We allow k < 0 in Steps 1 and 2, and prove the last part of Theorem 4.8 at the end of Step 2. k (Y ; R), and Pa∈A ρa [Xa , f a , Ga ] ∈ K C ef Step 1.
Kuranishi homology and Kuranishi cohomology
We can think of the weights as assigning equal probabilities to all the allowed steps for a random walker who starts at the root and descends step by step to form an inﬁnite path x ∈ X .
Random permutations and unique fully supported ergodicity for the Euler adic transformation
Since one of the j steps is a simple random walk step in the ﬁrst coordinate, the number of steps in the other coordinates has a Binomial(j − 1, d−1 d ) distribution.
Monotonicity for excited random walk in high dimensions
We consider the (m + 1)-st step in the path of w ′ through Γ′ (the step from sm to sm+1 ), and use the If this step is free, then Γ is obtained from Γ′ by notations of Lemma 6. deleting the vertex corresponding to sm+1 and the edge (sm , sm+1 ) (as well as, of course, omitting sm+2 from its block).
