    “Success, in a generally accepted sense of the term, means the opportunity to experience and to realize to the maximum the forces that are within us.”
  • Iris Murdoch
    “The notion that one will not survive a particular catastrophe is, in general terms, a comfort since it is equivalent to abolishing the catastrophe.”

Well-defined generic strategy types In general, we assume that a well-defined generic type should admit an instance for every possible term type since a generic strategy should be applicable to terms of all sorts.

When these results are substituted into the field equations (0.1) we find that the stress-energy tensor on the right hand side of the equations is decomposed into a tilde term and a singular term with the latter indicating the presence, in general, of a thin shell with history N .
Singular Hypersurfaces in Einstein--Gauss--Bonnet Theory of Gravitation
The approximate nonRWA solution is sought as a sum a∆ (τ ) + aΓ (τ ) where a∆ (τ ) is the generalized Rabi RWA solution (taking care of the first two terms in Eq. (8)) and aΓ (τ ) the correction due to the additional third term - remember that the fourth term is neglected because of the assumption that Γ >> 1.
