In science:

So, Win ⊆ conv(V ) and consequently Win = conv(V ). (ii) can be proved in the same way as for (i).
Convex Hulls of Quadratically Parameterized Sets With Quadratic Constraints
It is not hard to check that since ρ is winning then σ ∗ y ∈ X and σ ∗ y ∈ A ⇐⇒ y /∈ B : thus σ is a winning strategy for I in GL (A, B ).
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
I has a winning strategy in ˜GF ξ (A, B ), then I has also a winning strategy in GL (A, B ).
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
I has a winning strategy in GΓ (A, B ), then I has also a winning strategy in GL (A, B ).
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
I has a winning strategy in GF Γ (A, B ), then I has a winning strategy in GL (A, B ) as wel l.
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
If B = ω ω then Gk-Lip(A, B ) is trivially determined (II has a winning strategy if A = ω ω, and I has a winning strategy if A 6= ω ω ): hence we can assume B 6= ω ω and fix some y /∈ B .
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
If I has a winning strategy in one of these two games, then he can convert this strategy into a winning strategy for I in GW ξ (A, B ) in the obvious way, hence we can assume that II wins both the games.
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
I has a winning strategy in GLip ξ (A, B ), then I has also a winning strategy in GL (A, B ).
Game representations of classes of piecewise definable functions
In the above equation, we have used the fact that E (win,i (n)win,j (n)) = 0 for the BPSK constellation and thus E (wout,i (n)wout,j (n)) = 0.
Distributed Soft Coding with a Soft Input Soft Output (SISO) Relay Encoder in Parallel Relay Channels
Since they are coupled, B will win iff they drift (a − b) to the right from 0 and A will win iff they drift −a to the left from 0.
The Cover Time of Random Walks on Graphs
Duplicator has a winning strategy in the (k, m, Ω)-matrix-equivalence game starting on (A, ~a) and (B, ~b) if she has a winning strategy in the (k, m, Ω)-invertible-map game starting on (A, ~a) and (B, ~b).
Pebble games with algebraic rules
While we showed that the invertible-map game gives a refinement of the matrix-equivalence game (that is, a winning strategy for Duplicator in the former gives a winning strategy in the latter), it is not known whether this refinement is strict.
Pebble games with algebraic rules
The subset W is completely determined by the set Wmin of its minimal winning coalitions. A player which does not belong to any minimal winning coalitions is called dummy.
Roughly Weighted Hierarchical Simple Games
Requiring that shift-minimal winning coalitions are on or above the threshold is sufficient for ensuring that all winning coalitions are on or above the threshold.
