Abelian ideals in a Borel subalgebra of a complex simple Lie algebra
Indeed, drawing the effective potential with the requirement m2 = V ′′ (φ0 ) < 0, we immediately see (see fig. 18), that corresponding point (in the space of fields) is a local extremum but not a minimum, and under any perturbation the theory ”runs” in the ”true” vacuum at φ = φ∗ .

GR exceedingly difficult. (A brief and lucid presentation of this problem, drawing attention to its relevance in calculating the generation of gravitational radiation by self-gravitating systems, was given in . A broader summary, including modern developments is ).

It is more difficult to draw any firm conclusions on the orbital (an)isotropy of the two metallicity subsamples, owing to the large uncertainties in their individual spatial density profiles and to the poorly observationally defined kinematics of the metal-rich GCs in particular.
