The edges that we colour using the match colour will form a spanning subgraph D of the geometric graph, whose edges form a cycle on some (possibly all) vertices and a matching of some of the other vertices; in the very last stage of the argument we will adjust this to form a perfect matching of the whole graph.

As a generalization of S -space-forms and C -space-forms, in the authors introduced the concept of a generalized S -space-form equipped with two structure vector fields and studied its basic geometric properties.
A note on generalized S-space-forms
Given a linearly compact n-Lie algebra g over F over F, such that F ⊗F g F is isomorphic to g. F, its F-form is defined as an n-Lie algebra g Due to the bijection given by Proposition 2.4, the F-forms of g are in one-to-one correspondence with the F-forms of the Z-graded Lie superalgebras Sg = [ Lie g, Lie g].
Classification of simple linearly compact n-Lie superalgebras
Hence F-forms of On are vector product n-Lie algebras on Fn+1, n ≥ 3, with a non-degenerate symmetric bilinear form (up to isomorphism, these n-Lie algebras depend on the equivalence class of the bilinear form up to a non-zero factor).

Moreover, since T was simple the addition of the vertex y to form T 2 can introduce proper intervals only of the form {t, y} for t ∈ T (note that V (T ) cannot form an interval in T 2 as then it would also have formed an interval in T 1, a contradiction).

However, while such a process is relevant for massive star-forming regions and possibly for the formation of our own solar system (Boss 2008), it is not likely relevant for the relatively isolated protostars forming in most nearly, low-mass star forming regions.

Moreover, there exists a symplectic form ω on N such that the curvature form of η is given by dη = −p∗ω, where p : M → N is the quotient map . A converse construction of contact structures on any principal SO(2)bundle whose characteristic class is a symplectic form is easily developed through the identity dη = −p∗ω .

Giant planets are not likely to form in such a system, since such planets are thought to form far from their host star (although they may migrate later on to much smaller separations, e.g. forming hot Jupiters), where icy material is available for the initial growth of their planetary embryos (Pollack et al. 1996).

We have d′ y j = (Xi y j )θi = δ j i θi − tiZ (y j )θi = θj − (ti θi )y j = θj, so the (0, 1, 0)forms θi are exactly the d′ -derivatives of the local coordinates y i, for al l i = 1, n. c) The (0, 2, 0)-forms d′ y i ∧ d′ y j are d′ -closed forms, for al l i, j = 1, n.
