The findings, as reported in London's Sunday Telegraph, suggest that the concept of vanity sizing -- where manufacturers underestimate the true size of their clothing to flatter consumers -- has spread to men's fashion.
Though, if you want to really be healthy….scrap the super size , skip the mini- size and just exercise.
Then to produce a cycle of size exactly k , j must be equal to σk−1 (i) or σ−k+1 (i). (Depending on the exact size of the cycle containing i, there may be two other points allowed.) Thus, conditioning on the point i, the probability of creating a fragment of size smaller than 1/√εn is at most 4(1/√εn )εn , as claimed.
Effect of scale on long-range random graphs and chromosomal inversions
We consider a sequence of ﬁner and ﬁner partitions Qj , j ≥ 1 where Qj is a partition of Q0 into 2jd cubes of size a2−j (throughout the paper, this means that the interior of the cells are open cubes of such size, while their closure is a closed cube of the same size.
Combinatorial optimization over two random point sets
Therefore, we can use the Nisan-Wigderson ([NW94]) pseudo-random generator NW-gen that fools bounded-size constant-depth circuits and has seeds of size polylogaritmic in the size of the output.
Symmetry of information and bounds on nonuniform randomness extraction via Kolmogorov extractors
More precisely, for sets Z ⊂ [m] of size |Z | = εn, Y ⊂ V of size |Y | = ε(k − λ)n, and I ⊂ [m] \ Z of size |I | = εn we let E (Z, Y , I ) be the event that N (Φi ) ⊂ N (ΦZ ) ∪ Y for all i ∈ I .
Analyzing Walksat on random formulas
In short, an MDS code is a way to take a data object of size M , split it into chunks of size M /k and create n chunks of the same size that have the (n, k) property.
