    • n ai A common English digraph, representing generally the sound of “long a” (ā), which becomes ã before r, as in ail (sounded like ale), vain (sounded like vane, vein), air (sounded like ere, heir), etc. As commonly pronounced, it is strictly a diphthong consisting of “long a” (ā), or e , followed by a vanish, i , which is, in words of Anglo-Saxon origin, historically identical with the consonant y. This digraph occurs in words — of Anglo-Saxon origin, as in ail, hail, nail, sail, fain, wain, fair, lair, etc., being also used, parallel with ae, in modern Scotch spelling for “long a” equivalent to E. “long o,” oa, o-e, as in aith, raid, ain, etc.,= English oath, road, rode, own, etc.; of French, and ultimate Latin origin, as in fail, faint, vain, grain, aim, fair, etc.; of Greek origin, being used sometimes as a direct transliteration of Greek ατ instead of the usual Latin transliteration ae or æ (see æ), as in aitiology, etc.; of various other origin, usually representing the diphthong äi or ī, as in German kaiser and Oriental and “native” words, especially proper names, as Aino, Cairo, etc. In the words of Anglo-Saxon and French origin ai varied with ay, which now prevails when final, usually changing back to ai when made medial by the addition of a suffix, as in clay, day, gay, affray, array, etc., daily, afraid, raiment, etc.; but in some such cases, especially before a suffix beginning with a vowel, ay remains unchanged, as in payment, betrayed, clayey, etc.
    • n ai The three-toed sloth, Bradypus tridactylus or torquatus: so called from having a feeble, plaintive cry somewhat resembling the sound represented by its name. See sloth and Bradypus.
    • n ai Same as ahyu.
    • n ai An abbreviation of Adjutant Inspector General.

Classification on the average of random walks
If Pi∈N F (x, x)χAi (x) is uniformly convergent with respect to x ∈ X (to F ), then Lo (F ) exists and is equal to P∞ i=1 Lo (Ai)αi (where αi can be any real number if Lo (Ai) = 0).
Classification on the average of random walks
Since Ai ∪{∞} with the induced topology from X is homeomorphic to the one point compactification of Ai (with the induced topology from X ), then it is possible to apply Theorem A.1 to F |Ai obtaining F |Ai ∈ D(Lo).
