And this is all I have to say
About that tough old trotting bay,
Huddup! Huddup! G'lang! Good day!
Moral for which this tale is told

We w-w-wandered through a leafless w-w-wood
W-w-where many giant oak-t-t-trees s-s-stood,
And p-p-paused beside a d-d-dark g-g-green pool

He wings his course from star to star,
And leaves the bright abode.

In science:

Since the generic stratum is always open and since together with sϕ and hα~g also hα~g ◦ sϕ : Gk −→ G#α~g is continuous, U~g := (hα~g ◦ sϕ )−1((G#α~g )gen ) defines an open neighbourhood of ~g . 2.

Hence, in particular (~g ′ , f (~g ′)) = f ′ (~g ′) ∼ f ′ (~g ′′ ) = (~g ′′ , f (~g ′′ )). • Z (f (~g)) = Z for all ~g ∈ Gk . (sϕ (~g)) ∈ (G#α~gi )gen , Let ~g ∈ Gk .
On the Gribov Problem for Generalized Connections
G is over isomorphism classes of connected graphs, Aut(G) is the automorphism group of G, V (G) and E (G) are respectively the vertex set and the edge set of G and Wk (G) is the number of closed walks of k steps on G visiting all edges of G.
Random incidence matrices: moments of the spectral density
Let G ∈ G be a fixed group and C = G − G the category of G -groups, i.e. the category with ob jects (N , L) , where N is a group on which G acts through L : G → Aut(N ) , and with morphisms the G -equivariant group homomorphisms.
The nonabelian bar resolution
If G′ is a subgroup of G and g ∈ G, we denote by ZG′ (g ) the centralizer of g in G′ ; let NG (G′ ) be the normalizer of G′ in G.
