In science:

We hope that the discussion above makes it clear that the ‘reduction’ of αη in to a non-random cipher is false, and that in fact, no such reduction can be made under the heterodyne attack considered in .
Quantum Noise Randomized Ciphers
L ⊆ {0, 1}∗ for which S = χL, then a ∆-Turing reduction is an EiSPACE or Ei (see ) Turing reduction, respectively.
Dimension Extractors and Optimal Decompression
Recall that a ≤comp -reduction is simply a truth-table reduction.
Dimension Extractors and Optimal Decompression
Since the Turing reduction in our proof is also a weak truth-table reduction, it cannot be the case that dim(P ) > dim(S ).
Dimension Extractors and Optimal Decompression
However, it is also shown in that there is no uniform Turing reduction is capable of always increasing constructive dimension by a fixed amount: for every α, β with 0 < α < β < 1, and every Turing reduction M, there is a sequence S such that dim(S ) ≥ α and, if M S computes the sequence R, then dim(R) < β .
Dimension Extractors and Optimal Decompression
Ryabko considered two-way reductions (Turing equivalence) rather than one-way reductions.
Dimension Extractors and Optimal Decompression
The Turing reductions of Theorems 5.4, 4.1, and 5.5 satisfy the stronger properties of the weak truth-table reduction (see ), which is a Turing reduction in which the query usage of the OTM on input n is bounded by a computable function of n.
Dimension Extractors and Optimal Decompression
Although present, the nonanalyticity is weak enough in region IV to let the critical exponents take their dimensional reduction value (corrections to scaling may nonetheless differ from the dimensional reduction predictions).
Two-loop Functional Renormalization Group of the Random Field and Random Anisotropy O(N) Models
Lie superalgebra (DerS is the superalgebra in question) are conjugate to each other, and any reductive subalgebra is contained in one of them (see [2, Theorem 1.7]; this theorem is stated for tori, but its proof works for reductive subalgebras as well).
