In science:

For this model, the empirical eigenvalue distribution converges towards a non-centered semicircular distribution, and the extreme eigenvalues converge towards the edge of the spectrum.
Partial transposition of random states and non-centered semicircular distributions
As expected, the RR0 stars cluster towards the red end of the instability strip, and the RR1 stars cluster towards the blue end.

Inside Fr we can then form a path from v towards y and a disjoint path from the right hand edge of B (2n) towards y and ensure that ˜y (cid:48) is 2-pivotal.
Percolation of even sites for random sequential adsorption
Together with the transversal we have two sets of trees, each set of a different kind: the first set consists of trees oriented towards the root, and the second of trees oriented towards the leafs.

Note that if α < 0 the (average) drift is towards the ancestors, whereas if α > 0 the (average) drift is towards the children.

Here the string network evolves towards a scaling regime, a regime in which the characteristic length scale of the configuration evolves towards a constant relative to the horizon size [32, 33].
String Vertex Operators and Cosmic Strings
However, if p > q, then the particle will, on average, exhibit drift in velocity space and accelerate on average toward the right; whereas if p < q, then the particle will accelerate on average toward the left.
Could Planck level physics be driving classical macroscopic physics through a random walk?
By the assumption of clumping, the opacity peak is shifted towards even lower mean densities, i.e., towards lower (mean) values of Pgas .

The noise level is greater towards the spectrum of Knot-B than towards VLA1623 and Knot-A, because this source is located ∼10(cid:48)(cid:48) away from the phase center chosen for our observations.

The bright CO emission detected in Knots A and B might also come from column density enhancement and/or heating of the gas, similar to what was observed towards IRAS 16293 by Yeh et al. (2008), and towards HH 46 by van Kempen et al. (2010) thanks to high-J CO lines emission.

From the uniform convergence of Vn towards V it follows by Theorem 34 1. that U νnm (s) = Z log |t − s|−1 dνnm (t) converges uniformly (on C) towards U ν (s) := R log |t − s|−1 dν (t).

As expected, we find that the distributions for Qh and W tend towards a Gaussian and shift towards right, but those for ∆E and ∆φ remain similar to the case of a single cycle.

The recently introduced Nash-Pareto equilibrium concept captures a game situation where players are biased towards different types of rationality: Nash and Pareto. Their actions are biased towards different equilibria and the resulting equilibrium has hybrid characteristics.
