  • Interesting fact: The "last meal" for Death Row inmates has became embedded in the American death-penalty ritual. Reporters have dutifully recorded the last meal menus: John Wayne Gacy had fried chicken and strawberries; Ted Bundy passed on steak and eggs; James Smith, executed in Texas in 1990, requested a "lump of dirt" (request was denied); Missouri inmate Lloyd Schlup asked for venison and hare (request was granted).
    • n embedment The act of embedding or the state of being embedded or firmly fixed in some surrounding mass.
    • n embedment The mason work, clay, cement, or the like, in which something is or is to be embedded.

In poetry:

I trained my rifle on his heart;
He leapt up in the air.
The screaming ball tore through his breast,
And lay embedded there.

Hissed home o'er hill and sea
Straight to the aching heart of one
Who'd wronged not mine nor me.

In science:

Note that the requirement of equilaterality of the triangles is only approximately fulfilled for the embedding shown, since there is no generic exact embedding algorithm for performing it.
The Harris-Luck criterion for random lattices
In order to prove that there exists an isometric embedding of (Y, q) into (U, ρ), it suffices to prove that there exists an isometric embedding of an arbitrary countable dense subset {yn}∞ 1 of the space (Y, q) into (U, ρ).
Random Metric Spaces and Universality
No new examples of taut embeddings of homogeneous spaces besides the generalized flag manifolds were known until Gorodski and Thorbergsson classified in [GT03] (see also [GT]) the irreducible representations of compact Lie groups all of whose orbits are tautly embedded; we call representations with this property taut.

Theorem 1.14 extends this to torsionfreeness or unperforation, but then the following phenomenon happens: either the embedding has very strong properties and we only keep refinement, or the embedding is nothing more than an order-embedding but we have both refinement and divisibility.

Embedding Crossed Products into a Unital Simple AF-algebra
We consider the following question: When can C (X ) ⋊Λ Zd be embedded into a unital simple AF-algebra? An obvious necessary condition for C (X )⋊Λ Zd to be embedded into a unital simple AF-algebra is that there is a strictly positive Λ-invariant Borel probability measure on X (see 2.2 below).
