In science:

This processing involves owning or disowning some edges depending upon whether the level of the vertex has risen or fallen.
Fully dynamic maximal matching in O(log n) update time
First, u disowns all its edges whose other endpoint is at level 1.
Fully dynamic maximal matching in O(log n) update time
Here a matched edge of u was deleted and u starts this procedure by disowning all its owned edges whose other endpoint is at level 1.
Fully dynamic maximal matching in O(log n) update time
First we execute the function FA LL ING(v) which does the following. v disowns all its edges whose other endpoint lies at level i.
Fully dynamic maximal matching in O(log n) update time
If v becomes free, v executes the following task (see procedure PROC ESS -FR EE -V ERT IC E S in Figure 7) v scans all edges owned by it, which is less than 2j+1, and disowns those edges incident from vertices of level j .
Fully dynamic maximal matching in O(log n) update time
For a single fall of v from level i to i − 1, the computation performed involves the following tasks: scanning the edges owned by v, disowning those incident from vertices at level i, incrementing φw values for each neighbor w of v lying at level less than i, and incrementing φv (i) by one.
