In science:

Since the problems appear to be of a technical rather than conceptual nature, numerical methods are presumably useful here.
Dynamics and Stability of Black Rings
Skinner et al. 2002), whilst those in close binaries additionally possess a harder X-ray component of ∼2–3 keV, presumably from the shocked wind-wind collision zone.
A census of the Wolf-Rayet content in Westerlund 1 from near-infrared imaging and spectroscopy
There are > 100 LMXBs known (Liu et al. 2001); most give no observational indications of their (presumably) rapid spin, although since 1996 some have been found to exhibit oscillations in the range 45–620 Hz only during thermonuclear bursts (e.g.
Pushing the limit on neutron star spin rates
Note, however, that coefficients obtained in this way presume zero metrology input; they are not suitable for use with metrology enabled, and the fitting statistics (e.g.
Evaluation of the ALMA Prototype Antennas
Presumably, the servo is not well-tuned, and this is a correction for overshooting or something similar.
Evaluation of the ALMA Prototype Antennas
On the other hand, the tight correlation between L[OIII]/MBH and Dn (4000) presented in the third panel of Figure 14 implies that the presence of young stars (and presumably gas) in the bulge is a necessary and sufficient condition for further black hole growth.
Ongoing Formation of Bulges and Black Holes in the Local Universe: New Insights from GALEX
These disks have presumably accreted from gas in the surrounding dark matter halo.
Ongoing Formation of Bulges and Black Holes in the Local Universe: New Insights from GALEX
Before formulating it, let as agree that in the sequel when we use the notation xT we presume that only configurations x such that S(x) ⊃ T are considered.
On Gibbsianness of Random Fields
Since the early work of Madau et al. (1999), stars have been thought to be prime candidates for the energy source, since the GunnPeterson trough disappears prior to the presumed epoch of quasars (z > 5).
Star Formation in a Cosmological Simulation of Reionization
However, nonlinear renewal theory presumes that the perturbations are uniformly continuous in probability, in the sense that max{|ξn+k − ξn | : 0 ≤ k ≤ nδ} converges to zero in probability as n → ∞.
Tail asymptotics for the maximum of perturbed random walk
However, the conclusion of Theorem 1 generally does not hold if we assume only that the perturbation is light-tailed with E exp(θξj ) < ∞ for θ in a neighborhood of θ∗ ; additional regularity, as presumed in Theorem 1, is needed.
Tail asymptotics for the maximum of perturbed random walk
Here ε is a tuning parameter set by Efros and Leung to be ε = 0.1 (presumably by trial and error), and it is not meant to be changed by the user; this value was used in all the Efros and Leung results shown below.
Texture synthesis and nonparametric resampling of random fields
Suppose we have information about φ and ψ, where φ and ψ are presumed to be independent - in some adequate sense.
Remarks on Inheritance Systems
So we presume that all birds have these properties of the prototype, i.e. distance 0 from the prototype.
Remarks on Inheritance Systems
The concept of GHZ is much less well defined than the one of CHZ, since none of the presumably relevant factors can be quantified in a satisfactory way.
