Meet your expectations - If something doesn't meet your expectations, it means that it wasn't as good as you had thought it was going to be; a disappointment.
What can you expect from a hog but a grunt? - (USA) This means that you can't expect people to behave in a way that is not in their character- a 'hog' is a 'pig', so an unrefined person can't be expected to behave in a refined way.

Expect not here nor there;
O'er hill and dale, by plots, 'tis found;
Go forth, then, everywhere.

Demographers keep expecting a slowdown in rising life expectancies that has yet to occur.
Ahlstrom's sales volume development during the remainder of the year is expected to be weaker than the company had earlier estimated due to lower than expected demand in key markets the company said.
I expected it in Brooklyn, and even in California, but I never expected hip, stereotype shattering librarians to finally arrive in Minnesota, even if they're not really librarians.
Heat wave 2012 was expected to peak Saturday, with cooler temperatures – by as much as 15 degrees – expected early in the week.
Expect patchy fog until 9 am, and then a sunny day Thursday in Birmingham, but expect the fog to return Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.
In King County, turnout is expected to crest 50 percent, although the low expectations reflect the lack of major races on the ballot.

In science:

We expect the range of applicability of the form (18) to be limited at both sides: for very small distances R, discretization effects are observed, whereas for large distances finite-size effects modify the expected behavior, i.e., higher-order terms neglected in Eq. (18).
The Harris-Luck criterion for random lattices
This property together with the condition µ(Cj ) ≤ ε imply that the product whose expected value we have to estimate contains at least one factor whose expected value is less than 2εµ(Cj ).
An estimate about multiple stochastic integrals with respect to a normalized empirical measure
Note that using such a criterion, we can define a system size dependent temperature scale below which the thermal expectation values are indistinguishable from GS expectation values: βGS = 2nmax−1 ± 2nmax−2 and as shown in the inset of Fig.8, we obtain for this quantity a FS scaling of the form ln βGS ∼ √L for W = 0.6.
Crossover effects in the random exchange spin-1/2 antiferromagnetic chain
E is the expectation. (We could consider as well the maximal expected value of eω (φ, f ); this would only change the constants in our results.) The cost of an algorithm φ in the randomized setting is measured by a number of subroutine calls needed to compute an approximation.
Improved Bounds on the Randomized and Quantum Complexity of Initial-Value Problems
X has independent increments so that the expectation factors into a product.) The first expectation is clearly less than or equal to 1.
Intermittency in a catalytic random medium
X over the time intervals [s, s + κ3/2 ] and [s − κ3/2, s] are independent in order to replace the expectation over the single random walk X by an expectation over the two independent random walks X, Y .
Intermittency in a catalytic random medium
Firstly, note that, due to the use of the randomized matrix, there is a double expectation for Y on the RHS of the inequality, as opposed to the single expectation in the deterministic case.
A Framework for High-Accuracy Privacy-Preserving Mining
Note that as the expected value of random matrix ˜A is used for estimation in RAN-GD, and the random matrix used in experiments has expected value A (refer Equation 19) used in DET-GD, the condition numbers for two methods are equal.
A Framework for High-Accuracy Privacy-Preserving Mining
Due to the dominated convergence theorem, the first expectation on the r.h.s. goes to 0, while the second expectation is bounded due to (67).

The other direction is obvious, since the expected number of bits that A′ reads is at most δ n.) Thus, for symmetric functions, estimates on δ are equivalent to estimates on the expected number of bits that need to be read.
Balanced Boolean functions that can be evaluated so that every input bit is unlikely to be read
The expected amount of time of intersection is the expected number of intersections for two discrete time walks.
Scaling limits of the uniform spanning tree and loop-erased random walk on finite graphs
For a random graph on n vertices where the edges appear with individual rates, we give exact formulas for the expected time at which the number of components has gone down to k and the expected length of the corresponding minimal spanning forest.
