In science:

We can now simply compute the probability for the original ground state being stable for any h (i.e. no jump has taken place) by the joint probability P0 that all the Ek + h∆zk ’s are still higher than the original one with the given h. −∂P0/∂ h gives then the probability that this level crossing occurs at exactly h.
