Locally finite graphs with ends: a topological approach
Once the initial Cauchy hypersurface cuts across a trapping horizon in this way, the scenario for pathological foliations is not present initially; and a reasonable choice of lapse should guarantee that future Cauchy hypersurfaces continue to contain that component of the apparent horizon.
Black hole excision with matching
The discontinuity across the cut is ΩL,T (s), and is the cross-section for the currents to create hadrons.
The QCD Coupling Constant
The dispersion relation (14) relates the perturbative expansion coefficients for F (λ) to the discontinuity of F (λ) across the cut.
Perturbative--nonperturbative connection in quantum mechanics and field theory
Ultimately, the mathematical basis proves to be very similar to the matched filter, different primarily in the way that parameter space is explored – the matched filter makes cuts across parameter space, while the Bayesian ultimately integrates over parameter space.
A rigorous comparison of different planet detection algorithms
Bigger size sub-images are advisable for document image thresholding, where fuzzy outlines of letters need to be made well defined. A bigger sub-image size will help in keeping the threshold almost constant, across letters, thereby providing a consistent cut-off for removing fuzziness.
