In science:

The multiplicities of these can be read from Table 1. ml is always equal to 1 and mo = β .
Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces
This Hamiltonian, apart from an overall factor 1/γ and the constant c, exactly coincides with the Calogero– Sutherland Hamiltonian (7.4) discussed in section 7, corresponding to a root lattice R = {±2xi , ±xi ± xj , i 6= j } of type Cn with root multiplicities mo = β , ml = 1.
Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces
This root lattice is characterized by two types of roots, long and ordinary, and therefore by two indices β ≡ mo = 4 and η ≡ ml = 1.
Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces
The S–matrix ensembles correspond to root lattices of BCn type with the following root multiplicities: mo = β , ms = β − 2, ml = 1, where β takes values in the set {1, 2, 4}.
Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces
It is not SU (2N ) but the coset SU (2N )/S (U (N ) × U (N )), which is exactly the symmetric space described by the CN root lattice with multiplicities mo = 2 and ml = 1 mentioned above.
