The set of order parameters that one selects is unavoidably subjective, given that there is no single and complete scalar measure of order in the system.
Is Random Close Packing of Spheres Well Defined?
In order to precisely define a “weighted average” of elements in exG and exGL, we need to define σ -algebras on these sets of measures.

Hence, in order to construct new integrable hierarchies in the framework of the described approach it is necessary to have some infinite-dimensional Lie algebra eg possessing infinite set of mutually commuting hamiltonians {Ik } on its dual space.
"Doubled" generalized Landau-Lifshiz hierarchies and special quasigraded Lie algebras
In order to prove that the composition of random permutations from Σ approaches k-wise independence quickly we construct the Schreier graph Gk, n = sc(Σ, X (k) ), where X (k) is the set of k-tuple with k distinct elements from the base set X = {0, 1}n .

Motivated by physical application we will adopt a construction of quantum graphs in terms of so-called line-graphs as explained below. A (finite) directed graph or digraph consists of a finite set of vertices and a set of ordered pairs of vertices called arcs.
From quantum graphs to quantum random walks
In order to have a regular expansion we again set ¯y = ¯ε+ ¯B ¯ε2, while ¯ε and y ′ are of the same order. (From the relation ¯ε− ¯y = ε− y one obtains B ε2 = ¯B ¯ε2 .
Effects of mixing and stirring on the critical behavior
In order to formalize transseries and study their properties, it is useful to first introduce and study more general abstract expansions, over a well ordered set.

In order to manipulate De Concini-Procesi ideals, we use a generating set de fined by Tanisaki [T]. A nice feature of Tanisaki’s generating set is that its elements are elementary partially symmetric polynomials.
