For instance, take P = (α : β : γ ) a direction in the exceptional divisor with multiplicity r .
Equimultiple locus of embedded algebroid surfaces and blowing--up in arbitrary characteristic
The situation is qualitatively similar to that in MHD (§ 2.4), except now a kinetic description is necessary —Eqs. (145-148) replace Eqs. (25-27) —and the nonlinear scattering/mixing of the sl ow waves and the entropy mode by the Alfvén waves takes the form of passive advection of the distribution function g.
Astrophysical gyrokinetics: kinetic and fluid turbulent cascades in magnetized weakly collisional plasmas
One definite difficulty of shell-model calculations is due to the fact that they do not take into account any core isospin mixing, excepted of course for the no-core shell model calculations limited to very light nuclei (see for instance Ref. ).
Isospin mixing in a particle-number conserving microscopic approach
We will not use the subscripts g, n, d on W except where they are needed for clarity. A choice of basis for H 0 (C, La ) determines an embedding C → P(W ); taking the graph of f we obtain C as a subscheme in P(W )× Pr, such that the map f is retrieved by pro jecting to Pr .

The present implementation follows exactly this recipe except that it takes place in the time rather than the space domain.

The only significant exception is the error of the baryon density, which for the cvl data set is roughly 20% when taking the temperature uncertainty into account.
Effects of CMB temperature uncertainties on cosmological parameter estimation
It is easy to verify that considered maps are homeomorphisms which take leaves of each foliation listed in Set 1.1 of Theorem 3.2 except (V, F4,5) onto leaves of this one.
The Topology of Foliations Formed by the Generic K-Orbits of a Subclass of the Indecomposable MD5-Groups
It’s called generalized absolute continuity in the restricted sense (ACG∗, see ). A reasonable approach that some authors use is to take the continuous functions that are differentiable except for countable sets as the primitives.
Review of "Garden of integrals"
In that case we take advantage of the natural structure of CPM, i.e. in Eq. (35) all except one summands cancel down, similar to the terms with the data symbols.
L2 OSTC-CPM: Theory and design
We shall use the c onvention in which a′ = 16 and GN = 2 throughout the review, with the exception of section 6 in which we take a′ = 1 and GN = p/4, a convention frequently used in the literature for theories in D = 5.
alpha'-corrections and heterotic black holes
However, when only one time series is given, taking S T (ω) from Eq. (7) as estimate of the spectrum will lead to unsatisfactory results as the value of S T (ω) will fluctuate except for some pathological cases.
1/f^beta noise in a model for weak ergodicity breaking
Our solution for the system is obtained by taking all the cells real-valued and positive, with the exception of three cells, that should be real and negative: one of the two cells of type ρ, say the one that we called ρ′′, and the two cells of type σ2, namely those that we called σ ′2 and σ ′′2 .
Notes on TQFT Wire Models and Coherence Equations for SU(3) Triangular Cells
Minimal quasi-filling Dehn surfaces without triple points are clearly not filling, but if we take into account only P2 -irreducible 3-manifolds (except for three ones), we have minimal filling Dehn surfaces.
Orientable closed 3-manifolds with surface-complexity one
Here a quasi-Lie algebra is the same as a Lie algebra, except that the anti-symmetry relation takes the form [X, Y ] = −[Y, X ] which is more appropriate when working over Z (or in characteristic 2).
