Meet your expectations - If something doesn't meet your expectations, it means that it wasn't as good as you had thought it was going to be; a disappointment.
What can you expect from a hog but a grunt? - (USA) This means that you can't expect people to behave in a way that is not in their character- a 'hog' is a 'pig', so an unrefined person can't be expected to behave in a refined way.

To know that politicians still may stock,
These days, a weapon so spectacular.

I now beheld a world of drowsy hues,
Of blended colours mingled carelessly.

Look for the coming of the day of God.

Dimly expectant of lands yet more dim,

In science:

The model has expected infinite flow if its expected chain {E[W (k)]} has infinite flow.
On Ergodicity, Infinite Flow and Consensus in Random Models
We concentrate on expected reachability-time games, where the performance objective concerns the expected minimum time the controller can ensure for the system to reach a target, regardless of uncontrollable (environmental) events.
Quantitative Games on Probabilistic Timed Automata
Therefore even before the actual calculation, it is natural to expect that the residues at φ4 = 1 give what is expected in Witten’s conjecture (1.1).
Donaldson = Seiberg-Witten from Mochizuki's formula and instanton counting
P (V ) is the distribution of the random potential values V and E(V(k) ) is the expectation of the associated k -th order statistic, i.e. the expectation of the k -th smallest value among the M values of V drawn according to P (V ).
Phase transition and annealing in quantum random energy models
The ratio between expected value of multiplicity for edges that are connecting vertices in different communities to the expected value of multiplicity for edges that are connecting vertices in the same community with respect to parameter µ.
Topologically biased random walk with application for community finding in networks
We decide if a vertex belongs to a community according to the following ideas: (i) We expect that the vertices belonging to the same community to have similar values of eigenvectors components; (ii) we expect relevant eigenvectors to have the largest eigenvalues.
Topologically biased random walk with application for community finding in networks
Of course, any practical detection algorithm, even designed with full knowledge of expected signal, will respond to data with signals from a wider set of phases than physically expected.
On blind searches for noise dominated signals: a loosely coherent approach
Note the distributions are narrow, as expected, in the ergodic phase and consistent with log-normal, as expected, in the localized phase.
The many-body localization transition
If a non-vanishing expectation value is assigned for the auxiliary field, σ, the composite operator, ¯ψψ, also has a non-vanishing expectation value and the chiral symmetry is eventually broken. A non-vanishing expectation value for the auxiliary field, s, generates the fermion mass term.
Curvature and topological effects on dynamical symmetry breaking in a four- and eight-fermion interaction model
It is well-known (and easy to derive) that the expected passage time of the one-dimensional SRW from 0 to ±L is precisely L2 and the expected number of visits to the origin by then (including the starting position) is exactly L.
Explicit expanders with cutoff phenomena
This means that the expected number of offsprings at y of a particle living at g(x) (on the pro jected BRW (Y, ν )) is the sum of the expected numbers of offsprings at z of a particle living at x (on the BRW (X, µ)) over all z ∈ X whose pro jection is y .

Euler Integration of Gaussian Random Fields and Persistent Homology
The thing to note about Theorem 5.1 is that the expected value of a weighted sum of the critical values scales like L1 (M ), a 1-dimensional measure of M and not the volume Ld (M ), as one might have expected.
Euler Integration of Gaussian Random Fields and Persistent Homology
This will allow us to interpret our computation of the expected Euler integral for Gaussian random fields as a computation on the expected value of a quantitative measure of a Gaussian random field’s persistent homology.
