In science:
The minimum value that Lmax /Lj can take as j runs from 1 to N is unity; similarly, the maximum value that Lmin /Lj can take is unity.
Monte Carlo: Basics
When α < 1, the variable y has no mean, and it turns out that we can take bk ≡ 0; for α = 1, we can take bn = c log n, where c is some constant depending on F.
Mathematics of learning
Proof: Take A as in Corollary 7.1, and take a non-zero ﬁnite pro jection q in A.
A simple C*-algebra with a finite and an infinite projection
More generally, take p = αq where α ∈ (0, ∞) is constant, and take the limit as q ↓ 0.
The Random-Cluster Model
This formula takes on an especially simple form when q = 2, since non-zero mod-2 ﬂows necessarily take only the value 1.
The Random-Cluster Model
Taking basic forms is then equivalent to ˜g invariance, roughly corresponding to the motivation of taking C∗ (G) invariants given at the beginning of this section.
Quantum Field Theory and Representation Theory: A Sketch
Note that the limit ǫ → we would like to take is the same as that of taking the coupling constant to zero in the continuum limit as speciﬁed by the asymptotic freedom of the theory.
Quantum Field Theory and Representation Theory: A Sketch
The algebra A is obtained from B ⊗ B by taking a quotient by the additional relation {X, Y } = 0 and then taking invariants.
On the Cachazo-Douglas-Seiberg-Witten conjecture for simple Lie algebras
The lemma is now proved by taking δ = min(δ1 , δ2 ) and taking bj to be the restriction of aj , regarded as a section over S 1 of the continuous ﬁeld of Theorem 6.1, to I = exp(2πi(−δ, δ)).
Crossed products by finite cyclic group actions with the tracial Rokhlin property
If we take the product of these k inequalities and then take kth roots, we have (A.22).
An almost sure invariance principle for the range of planar random walks
We take the length of the chain N (later we will take the limit N → ∞) to be a multiple of n.
Absence of jump discontinuity in the magnetization in quasi-one-dimensional random-field Ising models
Suppose that: (i) either the coordinate changes take their values in N or(H ), the normalizer of H in G, this condition is satisﬁed for symplectic bund les whose coordinate changes take their values in the connected component S ymp(F, ω )0 of the group of symplectic automorphisms S ymp(F, ω ).
Gerbes, 2-gerbes and symplectic fibrations
As an immediate consequence of Lemma 11.11, we can describe, for example, the typed degree sequence of G2 , taking fi,d(v , G) to be the 1-neighbourhood function taking the value 1 when v has degree d and type i, and 0 otherwise.
The phase transition in inhomogeneous random graphs
The general case when X and Y could be take a countable or uncountable number of values then follows, either by a discretization argument, or by replacing the sums with integrals and using Fubini’s theorem; we omit the details, since for our application we only need the case when X, Y take ﬁnitely many values.
Random symmetric matrices are almost surely non-singular
Now, we take a w such that lk ≤ |D(w)| ≤ lk2 and take V1 = D(w), then V1 is clearly connected .
