In science:

Its relation with Navier-Stokes models and their invariant measures is obscure as well (a part from some vague conjectures, see ), so it is just one small step beyond pure phenomenology of turbulence.
Statistics of a vortex filament model
However it is beyond the scope of this paper to consider direct measures of the utility of a small CDS after it has been found.
The Expected Size of the Rule k Dominating Set
This is the distance beyond which the shot noise becomes too high (over 10% for the number weighted analysis). 10 The mean value of the redshift measurement errors is 30 km s−1 .
The Dipole Anisotropy of the 2 Micron All-Sky Redshift Survey
The measurement limits were set to ±65 km s−1 from line center, or just beyond the rotational limits on the profile. A comparison of indices extracted from both these broader and narrower limits for C IV showed that they followed the same form, but the broader limits decreased the apparent errors.

However, it is capable of reproducing the profile of vαp measured by Ulysses beyond 2 AU, if the right value for vαp is imposed at that distance.

From this we conclude that solar rotation should not be neglected in attempts to understand the Ulysses measurements of vαp beyond 2 AU.

If on the other hand we are able to measure ǫ which decreases as 1/N, the critical mcrit, beyond which the entanglement detection is impossible, will be independent of N, i.e., in the limit N → ∞ the ratio mcrit/N → 0 (see fig. 4a).
