In science:

It is shown how the relation ds = c dτ between the proper distance s and the proper time τ is obtained in general relativity. A general relation in curved spacetime between dτ and dt is given.
On Proper Time in General Relativity
Eq. (1) is for q = −1 called the canonical anticommutation relation (or fermionic relation) and for q = 0 is called the free relation.
Gaussian Random Matrix Models for q-deformed Gaussian Random Variables
The relation a | b is reflexive, since a | a for all a ∈ S, and transitive since a | b and b | c imply a | c, for all a, b, c ∈ S ; thus the relation a | b shares two of the four defining properties of a ‘weak’ linear order relation, a ≤ b.

In general relativity, Einstein’s gravitational equation is the equation which gives out the relation between energy-momentum tensor and spacetime curvature, which is essentially the relation between energy-momentum tensor and gravitational field.

To obtain convergence in relative entropy we use de Bruijn’s identity, which relates the relative entropy to Fisher information of perturbed random variables, which have densities we can control.
An information-theoretic Central Limit Theorem for finitely susceptible FKG systems
We therefore have proved that the relation in our sense,corresponding to a reflexive and transitive relation in the usual sense, is in fact a monoid in the category of relations.
The categorical theory of relations and quantizations
Since a relation r : B −→ A × A is a directed labelled graph it is clear that we get the relation r∗ : B −→ A × A by reversing all arrows in the relation r.

D, D ′ are the associated generalized Dirac operators, we prove for the pair (D, D ′ ) relative index theorems, define relative ζ – and η– functions, relative determinants and in the case of D = ∆ relative analytic torsion.
Relative Zeta Functions, Determinants, Torsion, Index Theorems and Invariants for Open Manifolds
The succeeding paper has 5 main goals, 1. a contribution to classification theory for open manifolds, 2. very general relative index theory, 3. scattering theory, 4. spectral invariants like the absolutely continuous spectrum and relative analytic torsion, 5. relative determinants, important in QFT on open manifolds.
Relative Zeta Functions, Determinants, Torsion, Index Theorems and Invariants for Open Manifolds
Either the dispersion relation can become complex (this is in general the case if bm < 0) or the term a′′/a dominates (this is the case for the dispersion relation introduced in Ref. or for the Corley/Jacobson dispersion relation with bm < 0 for a certain range of comoving wavenumbers).

Heisenberg had been the first who investigated the result of two consecutive non-coexistent measurements, and obtained an euristical relation (related to a similar one from the wave theory), which sounds like a relation obtained by independent means from the mathematical formalism of the quantum theory.

We shall consider here an even more exotic possibility that the field equations of general relativity are encoded also in the structure of the algebra so that the relation between general relativity and quantum mechanics can be understood by the relation which each of these theories has with noncommutative geometry.
