Upon scaling the lattice to n−1/4Zd, these random distributions of mass admit, for n going to infinity, a continuum limit J which is a random probability measure on Rd called ISE.

We call it ‘physically dubious’ because it takes the form of a necessary constraint upon how we are allowed to consistently represent certain variables in physical theories.
Relationalism vs. Bayesianism
Most of the existing applications of TDDFT are based on the so-called adiabatic local density or adiabatic generalized gradient approximations (generically denoted in the following by the acronym ADFT), which amount to assuming the same functional dependence of the XC potential upon density as in the static case.

As we pointed out before, group algebra based algorithms [18, 22, 13, 12] cannot be called upon to test q -monomials because Zq is not a field when q is not prime, hence in such a case the algebraic foundation for applying those algorithms is no longer available.
