In science:

The spectra of the other two flavours are very similar to each other, consisting only of a continuum contribution practically following a power law behaviour ∝ E −2 below the sharp threshold at half the gravitino mass.
Unstable Gravitino Dark Matter and Neutrino Flux
In practice, the power-law spectral indices of black-hole systems are found to lie in the range 1.4 . Γ . 4 (Remillard & McClintock 2006).
A Simple Comptonization Model
Note that, in practice, the above expectation is evaluated by Monte Carlo, i.e., by generating M (usually large) random trees, and taking the average of the individual outcomes (this procedure is justified by the law of large numbers, see the appendix in Breiman ).
Analysis of a Random Forests Model
Let us emphasize that the following results, which describe the quenched law of τ (x) in terms of the environment, can be stated in different ways, depending on the applications we have in mind, either practical or theoretical.

Finally in Section VI we give examples of application of this law to practical calculations of the eigenvalue density for a product of free matrices.
Multiplication law and S transform for non-hermitian random matrices
In some practical problems, we sometimes need to simulate the stationary law of an ergodic Markov chain.

Alternative measures of metrological resolution: contradictions and possible lack of limits
We assume that these finite-size anomalies obeys a simple power law: [χ]∗ av = b · Lγ /ν, and follow again the practice of observing the behavior of effective exponents by varying the Lmin of the fitting range.
Critical Behavior of the Three-Dimensional Ising model with Anisotropic Bond Randomness at the Ferromagnetic-Paramagnetic Transition Line
Since a stable law always belongs to its own domain of attraction, we have the following “practical” way of determining the correspondence between ∗-stable and ⊞-stable laws. is ∗-stable (or ν γ, σ 4.4.
Stable laws and domains of attraction in free probability theory
That means that, although being critical only for α = 0.25, for all practical purposes the system behaves as if it were critical for a wide range of values of α, with well-defined power laws over many decades.

In practice, of course, we can only deduce quantitative consequences directly from the fundamental laws in special, simple cases.
Future Summary
In practice, for small values of m/M, the subclump mass function is reasonably well approximated by a power law, and so this model also gives a subclump mass function which is in reasonable agreement with the simulations.
Substructure and the halo model of large-scale structure
GRBs do not deal with the mechanism of the acceleration; the common practice is to assume presence of an isotropic distribution of electrons with a either a simple power law spectrum, f (γ ) ∝ γ−δ, with the Lorentz factors in the range γmin < γ < γmax, a broken power law, or one with an exponential cutoff.
Physics of Gamma-Ray Bursts: Turbulence, Energy Transfer and Reconnection
The key question is: what happens to the vortices beyond the DG instability? Because of the computational cost of the Biot - Savart law, it is not practically possible to compute vortex tangles with densities which are as high (L = O(104 )cm−2 ) as those achieved in the experiment.
