In news:

Last week, Bahrain also shuttered the semi-independent Human Rights Society and replaced its board of directors.

In science:

In fact, only the conditions that are not the semi-graphoid axioms need to be tested, since the semi-graphoid axioms are by definition satisfied by the independence relation.
Stable Independence in Perfect Maps
In this paper we introduced the concept of strong dseparation in directed graphs, and we demonstrated its relation to the concept of strong stability in semi-graphoid independence relations.
Stable Independence in Perfect Maps
We also showed that the combined properties lead to a test that can be performed on a representation of a semi-graphoid independence relation by dominant triplets.

Recently several semi-device independent quantum protocols were proposed - e.g. for secure key distribution, random access coding, and randomness generation - in a scenario where no assumption on the internal working of the devices used in the protocol is made, except their dimension.
Attacks on semi-device independent quantum protocols
Recently, semi-device independent quantum protocols were proposed, where only the dimension of the exchanged system is assumed while the devices are uncharacterized.
Attacks on semi-device independent quantum protocols
Despite their security, real world implementations of semi-device independent protocols are sub ject to detection loophole (DL) attacks - as happens for any fullydevice independent protocol.
Attacks on semi-device independent quantum protocols
In the setup of any semi-device independent protocol two distant parties, say Alice and Bob, are involved.
Attacks on semi-device independent quantum protocols
In previous Section we discussed conditions under which it is impossible to fake a necessary condition for the success of any semi-device independent protocol, in the general framework where the statistics of the protocol is taken into account.
Attacks on semi-device independent quantum protocols
A semi-device independent protocol can be viewed as a random access code (RAC) or a quantum random access code (QRAC) .
Attacks on semi-device independent quantum protocols
In this work we addressed the problem of how non-ideal detection efficiencies can be exploited to fake the result of semi-device independent quantum protocols through DL attacks.
Attacks on semi-device independent quantum protocols
Indeed, in any semi-device independent setup one necessarily has to assume that the devices are shielded - namely they can not communicate except through message A.

To further surprise, Behroozi et al. (2012, hereafter B12) found that, using observational data and semi-analytic modeling, SHMR is almost time-independent between z = 4 to z = 0.

Regarding full mixing, it has been shown by Saloff-Coste and Z´u˜niga [2007] and independently by Ganapathy [2007] that the mixing time of any semi-random transposition shuffle is at most n log n, with the top-to-random having cutoff at this time.
