In science:

In the harmonic superspace context the space F parametrises the odd, Lorentz covariant CR structures on Minkowski superspace, and on the total space ˆM there is a natural CR structure obtained by combining the odd CR structure specified by a given point of F with the complex structure of F itself.
Aspects of the D=6, (2,0) Tensor Multiplet
The conjugate CR-equations (7) play the same role for the former functions as the CR-equations play for the latter; in practice this means that if a relation R(x, y ) has been shown to hold for an holomorphic function f of the form (4) the relation R(x, −y ) will hold for f ∗ .
Bicomplex algebra and function theory
Lemma 3.9 If w is a half-twist to the k th power, and k is even, there must be only one pair of strings with crossing number cr(i, j ) 6= 0, and then cr(i, j ) = k.
Identifying Half-Twists Using Randomized Algorithm Methods
If cr(i, j ) 6= 0 for more than one pair, or cr(i, j ) = 0 for all i 6= j , we can return f alse which is genuine (i.e. the probability of this f alse result to be correct is 1).
Identifying Half-Twists Using Randomized Algorithm Methods
Assuming equipartition between the CR energy density and the magnetic field, a CR energy density contrast can be inferred.
