Blent with images of others,
Whom they ne'er shall see again.

In science:

The representation (1.16) was used by Rider and Virág in the case of the Ginibre potential Q = |z|2 to prove the desired convergence of the cumulants.
Fluctuations of eigenvalues of random normal matrices
Fq ≤ C [[f ]], It is immediate to see that every q -Sidon set is a q -Rider set, and Rider’s result can be formulated in saying that the converse holds for q = 1.
Thin sets of integers in Harmonic analysis and p-stable random Fourier series
We will make use of the two following theorems, the first of which is an improvement of Rider’s one, since it claims that it is enough to test the assumptions of that theorem on polynomials with coefficients 0 or 1.
Thin sets of integers in Harmonic analysis and p-stable random Fourier series
First, any p-stable q -Rider set is actually an s-Rider set for the right value of s.
Thin sets of integers in Harmonic analysis and p-stable random Fourier series
But on the other hand, if one fixes some s ∈ (1, 2) and a set Λ which is an s-Rider set, one can choose either p or q in order to realize Λ as a p-stable q -Rider set.
Thin sets of integers in Harmonic analysis and p-stable random Fourier series
If one assumes that the entries of A are Gaussian (with different variances c2 ij ), then a weaker bound (exp(ǫn) for any positive ǫ) was proved by Friedland, Rider and Zeitouni .
Concentration of random determinants and permanent estimators
On the other hand, Friedland, Rider and Zeitouni showed that if the entries are strictly bounded from above and below by positive constants, then Barvinok estimator gives an approximation factor exp(εn)), for any fixed ε > 0.
