Shrinking close from the unused glows * of the seraphs'
versicoloured wings.

In science:

We perform the following algorithm to construct T1 : At each step we pick an unused vertex in T with exactly one unused neighbor in N (T ).
On the Rank of Random Sparse Matrices
Showing the algorithm does not terminate prematurely is equivalent to showing that after every step either every vertex in N (T ) is used or there is an unused vertex in T with exactly one unused neighbor in N (T ).
On the Rank of Random Sparse Matrices
It therefore must have a vertex of degree one, which must be in T since every unused vertex in N (T ) has degree at least two.
On the Rank of Random Sparse Matrices
Recent measurements have shown that despite increasing demands for bandwidth, much of the currently licensed spectrum remains unused a surprisingly large portion of the time .
