The savage waited their appointed time.

In science:

In order to study the behavior of this LST-string, as we will call it in this paper, at higher energies, we turn to the supergravity dual description of the theory and in particular the thermodynamics computed from this.
Open Branes in Space-Time Non-Commutative Little String Theory
We stress that the coefficients ξ i in (5) depend on ξµ and their derivatives up to an algorithmically computable finite order r, which depends on the case considered, called the total order of the natural bund le.
The First Law of Isolated Horizons via Noether Theorem
In order to construct the reduced density matrix from the lowest eigenstates one needs to diagonalize the effective matrices H at each DMRG step, we used the so-called Arnoldi method which is known to be particularly stable for non-hermitian problems .
Reptation in the Rubinstein-Duke model: the influence of end-reptons dynamics
In order to compute these generating functions, we will define a linear transformation of formal power series, called the E–transform, which maps these power series to exponential generating functions of a new variable q, and converts the operation ⊙ to the usual multiplication.
Generating functions for moments of the quasi-nilpotent DT-operator
Moreover, in order to transform the poles in Gamov vectors it is necessary to introduce two subspaces of the Hilbert space H, which we will call φ± .
The cosmological origin of time-asymmetry
We have two functions, F and G, which are used to select some of the cards to create a second sequence, which we continue to call a “subsequence” even though the order of the cards may be changed.
Independence Properties of Algorithmically Random Sequences
In fact, it is possible to show that in order to have no correlations in the absence of multiple and self-connections, a scale-free network with degree distribution P (k) ∼ k−γ and size N must have a cut-off scaling at most as ks (N ) ∼ N 1/2 (the so-called structural cut-off ) .
Generation of uncorrelated random scale-free networks
Nonlinear effects due to periodic nature of limit-cycle oscillators are found to become significant in the weak-coupling regime: So-called runaway oscil lators destroy the synchronized (ordered) phase and there emerges a fully random (disordered) phase.

In order to construct a particular basis for Sm(∆) it is necessary to introduce the so-called extended partition.

In order to avoid generalized inverses, we frequently use what we call hereafter Douglas theorem, an extremely useful result due to R. G.

When the isotopy class relative to a given periodic orbit is of finite order, the periodic orbit is called a finite order periodic orbit, and reducible and pA periodic orbits are defined similarly.

Indeed, in the phase diagram with parameters (J, D), there is believed to be a so-called ‘tri-critical point’, at which a line of phase transitions turns from first- to second-order.
