In science:

By an annex we mean a maximal well-connected set of foundational paths that includes at least one non-trivial foundational path.
K_6 minors in 6-connected graphs of bounded tree-width
Let us assume that e belongs to H1 (R) for some annex R.
K_6 minors in 6-connected graphs of bounded tree-width
This completes the case when e belongs to H1 (R) for some annex R, and so from now on we may assume the opposite.
K_6 minors in 6-connected graphs of bounded tree-width
Since e belongs to H1 (R) for no annex R it follows that the K -bridge B of H containing e includes no non-trivial foundational path.
K_6 minors in 6-connected graphs of bounded tree-width
It follows more generally (from the fact that e belongs to H1 (R) for no annex R) that every K -bridge B (cid:48) of H that has b and c as attachments includes no non-trivial foundational path.
