### In science:

These consequence relations are called “preferential” bec ause, in the light of Proposition 19, they can be de ﬁned equivalently with preference structures, ins tead of coherent choice functions.

We actually compute the mean of the ﬁnite number of values ins tead of the limit.
Transition from regular to chaotic motion in black hole magnetospheres
Since the test stand was at room temperature, the test conditions were slightly different from those conditions that would be if the couplers were in a cryomodule. Also, the inner conductors were cooled by a ir on the tes t s tand ins tead of gaseous he l ium as is planned for the APT plant operation.

Position i of C ’s output holds a tead (t) iff either i ∈ X and position i holds a tail (T), or i /∈ X and position i holds a head (H).
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Given these deﬁnitions of teads and hails, we see that C generates (A) iff C generates (a), and C generates (B ) iff C generates (b).
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Let us respond at once to the concern that teads and hails are “unnatural,” “position dependent,” or otherwise “gerrymandered.” Such characterizations seem no more applicable to teads/hails than to heads/tails.
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Position i of C ’s output holds a tail (T) iff either i ∈ X and position i holds a tead (t), or i 6∈ X and position i holds a hail (h).
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Position i of C ’s output holds a head (H) iff either i ∈ X and position i holds a hail (h), or i 6∈ X and position i holds a tead (t).
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Someone who thinks in terms of heads/tails may well ﬁnd teads/hails to be “derivative.” But someone who thinks in terms of teads/hails will make the parallel claim about heads/tails.
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Moreover, C produces an unbiased, independent sequence of heads/tails iff C produces an unbiased, independent sequence of teads/hails. (This is easy to verify.) Therefore, the runs test applied to teads/hails is as relevant to the randomness of C as the runs test applied to heads/tails.
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Unfortunately, applying the runs test to teads/hails leads to a reversal of our initial assessment (in terms of heads/tails).
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
To see this, just count the number of runs of teads/hails in (a) and (b), above.
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
Underlying this phenomenon is alteration of the “rejection set” in the passage from heads/tails to teads/hails.
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
C ’s randomness. A given, potential output from C might be considered extreme when the rejection set is reckoned in terms of runs of heads/tails but not teads/hails, and conversely.
Remarks on "Random Sequences"
The teads/hails terminology resonates with Goodman’s [1, Ch. 3] use of grue/bleen to question the basis of pro jections to the future.
