In science:

The immediate response of part-units in contrast to the gradual refinement of categorical-units is apparent in figure 5, which shows the optimal decoding matrix for selected units, inferred from their observed activity at each iteration.
Discriminative Recurrent Sparse Auto-Encoders
Discrepancies between the prototype and the input due to deformations orthogonal to the data manifold are explained by class-incompatible part-units, and serve to suppress the categorical-units of that class, both directly and via activation of incompatible categorical-units.
Discriminative Recurrent Sparse Auto-Encoders
If we use the notation ui,n to denote the order unit corresponding to i ∈ Log Pn , we have found order units vi+t,n+1 order units with t ∈ Log pn+1 such that ui,n = P(pn+1 , xt )vi+t,n+1 .

Clustering and synchronization with positive Lyapunov exponents
We recall that when κ1 (resp. κ2 ) is different from zero, by a suitable choice of length unit (resp. angle unit), it can be reduced to either +1 or −1: in this table we write the theorems with such an adapted ‘natural’ choice of units.

Specifically, we say that a unital extension ϕ : A → Q(B ) is unital ly split when there is a unital ∗-homomorphism π : A → M (B ) such that ϕ = q ◦ π .
The group of unital $C^*$-extensions
The sum (1) of two unital extensions is again unital, and we say that two unital extensions ϕ, ψ : A → Q(B ) are unital ly stably equivalent when there there is a unital split extension π such that ψ ⊕ π and ϕ ⊕ π are unitarily equivalent.
The group of unital $C^*$-extensions
It was proved in [Th] that there always exists a unital ly absorbing split extension π0 : A → Q(B ), i.e. a unitally split extension with the property that π0 ⊕ π is unitarily equivalent to π0 for every unitally split extension π .
The group of unital $C^*$-extensions
As we shall see there is a difference between Ext−1 unital (A, B ) and Ext−1 (A, B ) arising from the fact that while the class in Ext−1 (A, B ) of a unital extension A → Q(B ) can not be changed by conjugating it with a unitary from Q(B ), its class in Ext−1 unital (A, B ) can.
