In science:

In essence, we combined all “good” quantum numbers into a single one and from now on we will consider that we have only one Hamiltonian symmetry called the “effective” symmetry, and only one corresponding number qk , the “effective” quantum number.
The Density Matrix Renormalization Group for Strongly Correlated Electron Systems: A Generic Implementation
The speed of many one-line transformation methods for the production of, for example, L´evy alpha-stable random numbers, which generalize Gaussian ones, and Mittag-Leffler random numbers, which generalize exponential ones, is very high and satisfactory for most purposes.
Random numbers from the tails of probability distributions using the transformation method
The above consideration can be easily generalized to the case where several slow thermostats are present: let us suppose that there are N − 1 thermostats at temperature T (the fast one and N −2 slow ones) and one at temperature T1 .
The fluctuation-dissipation relation: how does one compare correlation functions and responses?
To start with, even the existence of the model does not appear completely trivial: one needs some conditions on µ which guarantee that not too many events are happening in a given compact set: for instance, the tra jectory of a given particle will be a L´evy process and one set of conditions on µ comes from there.
Recent progress in coalescent theory
The stable R-transforms (13.3.9) are in one-to-one correspondence with the ctransforms of L´evy distributions (13.2.3) and they fully classify all free stable laws and allow one to determine the free probability densities for these stable laws.
