In science:

Let us construct the comma categories (H (A) ↓ H (CA ◦ B )), where the functor H (CA ◦ B ) is the composition of CA ◦ B and H.

We say an n × d matrix A is badly approximable if there exists a constant CA such that {Ah}∞ > CA/khkd/n ∞ for al l non-zero h ∈ Zd .
Random walks on the torus with several generators
On the other hand, although the sensitivity of CaT* to the Ca abundance is not yet fully understood, in this scenario the high CaT* in dEs would imply a Ca overabundance at low metallicities (see Thomas et al. (2003) for a detailed discussion).

Thus Ca is a rational normal curve in Pa =< Ca > and likewise for Cb .
Normal bundles of rational curves in projective spaces
O(−a) ⊂ N ∗ Ca corresponds to the linear forms vanishing on Ca ∪ TpCn .
Normal bundles of rational curves in projective spaces
Indeed, it suffices to degenerate Ca ∪ Cb to Ca ∪ L ∪ Cb−1 and use the fact that Ca ∪ L and L ∪ Cb−1 are almost balanced, together with Lemma 6.7.
Normal bundles of rational curves in projective spaces
Ca ∪TpCb, or equivalently on Pa ∪TpCb where Pa is the linear span of Ca, hence for fixed S and Cb, S1 may be considered a generic (n − 1 − a)-dimensional subspace of S .
Normal bundles of rational curves in projective spaces
Next, HN2 (N ∗ |Ca, p) is spanned by S1 and σ and since S maps isomorphically to M /σ and S1 is generic in S, it follows the the image of HN2 (N ∗ |Ca ) ⊗ k(p) in M /σ is a generic (n − d − 1)−dimensional subspace, hence meets the image of HN1 (N ∗ |Cb ) ⊗ k(p) transversely.
Normal bundles of rational curves in projective spaces
Now the results of §6 show that as Ca specializes to Ca−n+1 ∪ Cn−1, the cohomology of N remains constant: in fact NCa−n+1 ∪Cn−1 splits as a direct sum of line bundles in such a way that the splitting deforms, summand by summand, to a splitting of NCa (cf.
Normal bundles of rational curves in projective spaces
This implies that the cohomology of N0 is constant along the locus t = 0 where p remains a node (in this locus the general curve is of the form Ca ∪ Cb and the special one is Cn−1 ∪ Ca−n+1 ∪ Cb ).
