In science:

Palu [Pa], [ABST], see also [BaM] for a geometric description of d−cluster categories of type An . d−cluster categories are triangulated categories with Calabi-Yau dimension d + 1.
Generalized cluster complexes via quiver representations
We can therefore extend the mapping h·, ·i to a pairing (a bilinear form) between the vector spaces VMκ and baM, where baM is defined as the linear space spanned by Dκ, i.e. baM, (cid:8)Q ∈ ba(O, Pκ ) : ∃ y > 0, Q+, Q− ∈ Dκ (y ) such that Q = Q+ − Q−(cid:9) .
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
We can, therefore, identify baM with a subspace of the topological dual of VMκ and Dκ (y ) with its bounded subset.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
For every y > 0, Dκ (y ) is σ(baM, VMκ )-compact.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
The domain Dom(V) of the convex conjugate V of U satisfies Dom(V) ⊆ baM+, and Dom(V) + baM+ ⊆ Dom(V).
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
For Q ∈ Dom(V), we have V(Q) = V(Qr ), where Qr ∈ baM+ is the regular part of the finitely-additive measure Q.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
For Q 6∈ baM+, there exists an optional set A such that q, −Q[A] > 0.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
To show that Dom(V) + baM+ ⊆ Dom(V) we only need to note that it follows directly from the monotonicity of V.

In addition the gauge is evolved using the ‘1+log’ [60, 61] and ‘Γ-driver’ equations [61, 62] and the coordinate singularity in the conformal factor is dealt with by evolving either the regular variable χ = ψ−4 (in BAM) or φ = ln ψ (in CCATIE), which diverges ‘slowly’ enough so as not lead to numerical instabilities.
