In science:

Our main motivation for studying the satisfiability of Horn f ormulae is the unusually rich type of phase transition described above, and the fact that its tractability allows us to perform experiments on formulae of very large size.
A Continuous-Discontinuous Second-Order Transition in the Satisfiability of Random Horn-SAT Formulas
Similarly to the word automata case, we can show how to construct a Horn formula from a binary-tree automaton.
A Continuous-Discontinuous Second-Order Transition in the Satisfiability of Random Horn-SAT Formulas
Proposition 2.1 Let A be a word or binary tree automaton and φA the Horn formula constructed as described above.
A Continuous-Discontinuous Second-Order Transition in the Satisfiability of Random Horn-SAT Formulas
At each stage the resulting formula consists of a set of Horn clauses of length j for 1 ≤ j ≤ k on the n − T unlabeled variables.
A Continuous-Discontinuous Second-Order Transition in the Satisfiability of Random Horn-SAT Formulas
By completeness of positive unit resolution for Horn satisfi ability, this is precisely the probability that the φ is satisfiable.
A Continuous-Discontinuous Second-Order Transition in the Satisfiability of Random Horn-SAT Formulas
First, since each hyperedge of length j corresponds to j Horn clauses, we set dj = jβj for all j ≥ 2.

Because the polarimeter splits the power from each horn into two modes which must be measured independently, the number of detectors is twice this.
