In science:

We prove that the width is at least Θ(n1/2 ). (Independent of this present work, Kirkpatrick has reported that experiments suggest that the width is Θ(n1/2 ).) We can also supply lower bounds on the transition width of other graph properties, such as q -colorability.
On the critical exponents of random k-SAT
This simply reflects the analogous transition in the model without the blocking condition, although the transition occurs at a lower energy.
Metastable configurations of spin models on random graphs
At a lower temperature, the ordered phase can also undergo a dynamical glass transition, splitting into substates separated by large barriers.
Embedding a Native State into a Random Heteropolymer Model: The Dynamic Approach
At even lower temperatures, the native state itself is unstable against a glass transition where it splits into a large number of substates.
Embedding a Native State into a Random Heteropolymer Model: The Dynamic Approach
This is expected to be the case for the transition at Tg in our model: The equilibrium glass transition temperature is lower than the dynamical one.
Embedding a Native State into a Random Heteropolymer Model: The Dynamic Approach
Our approach allows to demonstrate, in particular, some transitions between lower and higher dimensions for quaternionic and octonionic generalizations of classical holomorphic functions.

Rotation allows a transition WN/WC phase to be present for initial masses lower than 60 M⊙ .

Consequently, the transitional WN/WC phase only appears in the mass range between ∼ 30 and 60 M⊙ for vini = 300 km s−1 . – Finally, the minimum mass for a star to become a WR star (through the single star channel) is lowered by rotation.

From (2.3) one can deduce lower bounds of λ in terms of optimization problems for paths on the weighted graph structure induced by the transition matrix of X on X (See and the references therein). (2.2) might be sharp or not depending on X .
