To the summer fields go
The stags, with antlers
Only stubs;
My darling's heart:
Have I thought of you.

O'er the broken shrubs,
'Twixt the stems and stubs,
With a still, composed, strong mind,
Nor a care for the world behind—-

And when I Can the Pipe, another Day,
And when I Must I browse on Cigarettes -
Then, as you love me, take the Stubs away!

In science:
This phase is a general feature of transmission zeroes that always occur in Fano resonances in Quantum Wires and Dots, the stub structure being the simplest example [12,13].
Violation of general Friedel sum rule in mesoscopic systems
So in Fig. 3 we plot transmission coeﬃcient T = |t|2 (solid curve) and the argument of the transmission amplitude t (short-dashed curve) in x direction, versus kL for an almost hard walled stub.
Violation of general Friedel sum rule in mesoscopic systems
This unifying approach, to be referred to as CDRG (for Colored DRG), contains IRG and DRG as particular subsets, and is deﬁned as a direct extension of DRG by assigning a hidden color to each vertex connection (a half-edge, or stub).
Random Graphs with Hidden Color
Nm and nab . A random stub-pairing method for DRG can be extended to the case of colored stubs as follows.
Random Graphs with Hidden Color
We demonstrate how to generalize two of the most well-known random graph models, the classic random graph, and random graphs with a given degree distribution, by the introduction of hidden variables in the form of extra degrees of freedom, color, applied to vertices or stubs (half-edges).
Random Graph Models with Hidden Color
In a sequence of papers [6, 7, 8], I have explored the use of hidden coloring, either of vertices or of stubs, to deﬁne more general random graph models.
Random Graph Models with Hidden Color
Deﬁne random edges by performing a completely random pairing within the resulting even-numbered set of M stubs.
Random Graph Models with Hidden Color
The probability that two arbitrary stubs with known colors a, b will be paired with each other is Tab /N .
Random Graph Models with Hidden Color
Associate with each node with k stubs in γ a factor N hmk i.
Random Graph Models with Hidden Color
Associate with each stub in γ an independent color label.
Random Graph Models with Hidden Color
One complicated feature of this algorithm concerns the probability of selecting a new neighbor from the stub list.
Random Networks with Tunable Degree Distribution and Clustering
Let qj denote the probability of selecting node j from the stub list.
Random Networks with Tunable Degree Distribution and Clustering
The clustering algorithm described in this text with C = 0 2. A ”stub-matching” algorithm as in , known to produce true random graphs with speciﬁed degree distributions.
Random Networks with Tunable Degree Distribution and Clustering
Even at 90% clustering, the poisson random network only undergoes less than 5% reduction in its ”stubs”.
Random Networks with Tunable Degree Distribution and Clustering
The color is allowed to affect the edge distribution by introducing a color-dependent bias in the random pairing of stubs.
