In science:

Then Ei arises from blowing up a relevant point on a relevant Ei′ with ri′ prime to q .
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Next assume all the relevant Ei have ri prime to q and P ′ is a relevant intersection point.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Conversely, suppose all relevant Ei have ri prime to q and there are no relevant intersection points.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
The first two are valid if all SUSY masses are approximately equal (note that the relevant masses are different in the two cases), and the third and fourth are valid if the stop/sbottom mixing is large and the relevant stop/sbottom and Higgs masses are of similar size.
The Muon Magnetic Moment and Supersymmetry
The case δ → 0 is relevant when the regression effects are weak, and the case p → ∞ is relevant when a large number of covariates are incorporated.
Sample size and positive false discovery rate control for multiple testing
We call the nodes on the relevant loops the relevant nodes, and we denote their number with Nrel .
Random Boolean Networks
The relevant nodes are arranged in 2 relevant components.
Random Boolean Networks
The number of relevant nodes that have two relevant inputs remains finite in the limit N → ∞. 7.
Random Boolean Networks
The number of relevant nodes must therefore be proportional to the square root it is Nrel ∼ N 1/3, of number of nonfrozen nodes, i.e. and the number of relevant components is of the order ln N 1/3, with the largest component of the order of N 2/3 nodes (including the trees).
Random Boolean Networks
Assume there are 4 relevant nodes, one of them with two relevant inputs.
Random Boolean Networks
The frozen core obviously remains a frozen core under stochastic update, and the relevant nodes remain relevant nodes.
Random Boolean Networks
The renormalization is only relevant for so-called “meta-observers” who can simultaneously compare rates between many different Hubble patches; it is relevant for what we can compute, but not necessarily for what we can observe.
One-loop corrections to the curvature perturbation from inflation
We moreover show that these relevant variables for f ′ all have high in fluence in f (the converse is not true; examples can be given which show that not every variable that has “high in fluence ” in f will in general become a relevant variable for f ′ ).
Efficiently Testing Sparse GF(2) Polynomials
We denote the set of parameters of the model M under consideration (here the CMSSM) by θ, and by ψ all other relevant parameters, the so-called nuisance parameters, which here include relevant SM quantities.
