In science:

The previous proposition makes clear that the lower vertex of an upper alcove cannot have the type of a short simple root for commensurability reasons. (Here the convention is that a root is long and not short if the root system is simply laced.) We next observe that no lower vertex can have type 0.
Abelian ideals in a Borel subalgebra of a complex simple Lie algebra
Actually, this construction makes sense if G is simply-laced, because otherwise the Cartan matrix is not well-defined.

The proofs make use of results from several previous papers involving the lace expansion; these results are gathered together and slightly extended in Section 4.1.

This needs to be proved, of course, and these proofs are typically quite involved (for high-dimensional models one needs to make use of lace-expansion techniques).
Random walk on the high-dimensional IIC
