Volunteer needlessly help;
In strikes a Fourth, a Fifth thrusts in his nose,
So the cry's open, the kennel's a-yelp,
Argument's hot to the close. XIV.

A role in war, and be the last

In science:

The argument for (4.5) works without changes in the present case and the same is true for the first half of the argument for (4.4), presented in (4.6).
Tail probabilities for infinite series of regularly varying random vectors
It applies Stallings folding arguments and is not very hard although the complexity used in the argument is somewhat involved.
On accessibility of finitely generated groups
Our asymptotic independence argument is reminiscent of the argument of Siegmund which remained at a heuristic level, and we want to emphasize that this asymptotic independence is the difficult part of our proof.
A probabilistic representation of constants in Kesten's renewal theorem
Suppose a function f was chosen that has K arguments, these arguments are chosen at random from all (cid:0)N K (cid:1) equally likely possibilities.
Analysis of random Boolean networks using the average sensitivity
We first present a plausible argument of why ARCCC is a good sur rogate for RCCC, and then present numerical results that justify this argument.

There are two possible counter arguments to the local physical laws argument.
Quantum Mechanics and Closed Timelike Curves
Furthermore, since T M = im F± ⊕ span{Z±} we may decompose each condition (5.13), (5.14) into the cases (i) one of the arguments is Z± and the others belong to im F±, (ii) all the arguments are in im F± .

The only part of the argument which needs any attention at all is the proof of (46) (the remaining components of the argument work even just assuming finite second moment for x).
Random Matrices: The circular Law
The truncation argument in [2, §10.5.1] which allows one to replace νn with ˜νn can be easily modified, basically by similar arguments to the one used to deduce (56).
Random Matrices: The circular Law
However, this argument does not work in the case when the branching random walk is transient, so we present a general argument that works in both cases.

Unfortunately, the argument there is long, as complicated branching process arguments were necessary to complete the proof.
Convergence of simple random walks on random discrete trees to Brownian motion on the continuum random tree
The construction of B (k) in Section 2.4 using a time-change argument allows us to prove an almost-sure version of the limit B (k) → X via standard arguments, which depend only on the fact that the measures λ(k) converge weakly to µ, see Lemma 3.1.
