In science:

When the sequences of moments uniquely identify probability measures (which is the case for compactly supported probability measures), the distributions of a1 + a2 and a1a2 give us two new probability measures, which depend only on the probability measures associated with the moments of a1, a2 .

Stability of Spectral Types for Jacobi Matrices Under Decaying Random Perturbations
A minimum error measurement will, in general, be a generalised measurement described not by pro jectors but rather by a probability operator measure (POM), also referred to as a positive operator valued measure .
On the conditions for discrimination between quantum states with minimum error
However, the following is a simpler proof: as we mentioned after the definition of measurability, the first cardinal µ for which an ultrafilter is (µ, µ)-regular is either ω or a measurable cardinal, and it is well-known that measurable cardinals are strongly inaccessible, thus 2ω < the first measurable cardinal.

When all detection operators are pro jectors, the measurement is a von Neumann measurement, otherwise it is a generalized measurement based on a positive operator-valued measure (POVM).

Note that in the definition of ms(G, r) we consider only measurable coloring of G, that is colorings whose monochromatic classes are measurable subsets of G with respect to the Haar measure µ. (Admitting also non-measurable colorings would yield ms(S 1, r) = 0 according to Theorem 3.1).
Symmetry and colorings: Some results and open problems
Given a measurable subset A ⊂ X and a finite r we define M S (A, S, r) be the least upper bound of ε > 0 such that for every measurable r-coloring of A there exists a measurable monochromatic S -symmetric subset B ⊂ A of measure µ(B ) ≥ ε.

Tug-of-war with noise and an invariance of p-harmonic functions under boundary perturbations
As other important consequences, Theorem 5.4 and Theorem 5.5 show that p-harmonic measure is subadditive on {E ⊂ ∂Ω : E is a countable set of p-harmonic measure zero} and a countable set of p-harmonic measure zero does not affect the p-harmonic measure of any closed set on ∂Ω.

Mσ denotes the set of σ−invariant probability measures and h(ν ) denotes the entropy of the measure ν (for a precise definition see [W, Chapter 4]). A measure ν ∈ Mσ attaining the supremum, that is, Pσ (ρ) = h(ν ) + R ρ dν is called equilibrium measure for ρ.
