In particular, we will consider a situation where the environment is composed of N particles that are almost all of the same kind, with the exception of a slight “contamination” of particles of different kinds.
The effect of random coupling coefficients on decoherence
On the other hand, a realistic environment is usually composed by a limited number of different kinds of particles, and it is reasonable to suppose that the particle of interest P interacts with all the particles of the same kind with the same strength.
The effect of random coupling coefficients on decoherence
The term ‘determinantal’ was introduced in [Bor00a], for the reason that the particles of the process studied there were of two kinds; particles of the same kind repelled, while particles of different kinds attracted.
Determinantal point processes
So is there a theory with phase group Z9, and what kind of theory is it? Solving questions of this kind is one avenue for future research.
Phase groups and the origin of non-locality for qubits
In, Guo simultaneously considered the two kinds of topologies—the (ǫ, λ)-topology and locally L0 -convex topology for a random locally convex module in order to give the relations between the basic results currently available derived from the two kinds of topologies.
Recent progress in random metric theory and its applications to conditional risk measures
Thus the theory of random duality based on the framework of a random locally convex module should have two kinds — corresponding to the above two kinds of topologies, respectively.
Recent progress in random metric theory and its applications to conditional risk measures
The reduced bar- and cobar-constructions assign to an algebra A of the above kind a coalgebra C of the above kind and vice versa; these constructions preserve quasiisomorphisms of algebras and coalgebras and are mutually inverse up to natural quasi-isomorphisms [40, Theorem A.1.1 and Remark A.1].

The conjugacy classes of the first kind correspond to conjugacy classes of Pn, and the action of Cp leaves these conjugacy classes invariant, hence, there are hn (k) conjugacy classes of elements of order ≤ pk of the first kind.
