When her new meetin'-bunnet
Felt somehow thru' its crown a pair
O' blue eyes sot upun it.

As they floated away tied together

A happy burden, when the breeze
Of summer rocked it, and a pair
Of merry tattlers told the trees
What treasures they had hidden there.

We note that Eqs. (13) and (14) transform a pair of length differences into another pair of length differences independent of the other pairs at the same time t.
High precision simulations of the longest common subsequence problem
In other words, the sequence ~x has the interesting property that equality at any pair of locations implies inequality at the pair of their immediate successors and the pair of their immediate predecessors.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
There is the following straightforward characterization of these two torsion pairs as the extremal ones when dealing with all the torsion pairs of Mod Λ with prescribed distribution of the ﬁnite dimensional modules: we deal with the torsion pairs (X, Y ) with t ⊂ X and q ⊂ Y .
Infinite dimensional representations of canonical algebras
As a consequence, the pair (F, g (t)) where F = r(t), is a torsion pair (but this is a torsion pair which is not split).
Infinite dimensional representations of canonical algebras
In order to obtain the detailed spectrum in the pair-cascade model we need to simulate electron–positron plasmas including the effects of synchrotron radiation, Compton scattering, pair creation, pair annihilation, Coulomb scattering, e–e bremsstrahlung, and so on.
Photon Emission in a Cascade from Relativistic Protons Initiated by Residual Thermal Photons in Gamma-Ray Bursts
Following the convention, we deﬁne the “pair yield” as P Y ≡ R dγ±P (γ±)/ R dγ±Q(γ±)(γ± − 1), where Q(γ± ) is the rate of injection of pairs of γ± via the pion decay, and P (γ±) is the rate at which secondary pairs of γ± are created via pair production.
Photon Emission in a Cascade from Relativistic Protons Initiated by Residual Thermal Photons in Gamma-Ray Bursts
Thus, by Borcherds [Bo, Lemma 9.6, Theorem 9.5], there are two isometries in Aut(D) whose restrictions on R give rise to two involutions in S ym(R), one switching the pair of A2 ’s as well as the pair of A1 ’s, and the other switching the pair of A1 ’s only.
The Alternating Group of degree 6 in Geometry of the Leech Lattice and K3 Surfaces
To the semimatroid C, we have assigned a pair (M, I ) ∈ MatId(S ), a pair (M, N ) ∈ MatPreim(S ) and a pair (M, eN ) ∈ MatCoext(S ).

One now asks a natural question whether these four pairs, together with the above three pairs, generate all possible pairs of order coincidence.

One now asks a natural question whether these four pairs, together with the pairs described in the remark (IV.12), generate all possible pairs of order coincidence.
Arithmetic of algebraic groups
Therefore, a quadrilateral 2-face Q containing V is of one of the following types: either Q corresponds to a pair of joined nodes in ΣV (there are n − 1 of such pairs) or to one of two pairs described above for each of the connected components (or “components” for n = 10) of the diagram Σ(5) V .

Truncated Groebner fans and lattice ideals
Thus, every pair of the form (3.5) is identiﬁable with a pair of the form (3.6), and, since the real part of the equal, vector and covector, components of the two pairs must be the same, we must have X = Y and ξ ∼ η modulo ann T N .

For any pair measure Q ∈ eP(Zd × Zd ) with In (3.13) there is a sum over all pair measures in P(N ) ﬁnite relative entropy H (Q|Q⊗m) and ﬁnite functional I (Q) β we need an approximation with a sequence (QN )N ∈N of pair probability measures QN ∈ P(N ) Λ converging to Q as N → ∞ in an appropriate way.
Asymptotic Feynman-Kac formulae for large symmetrised systems of random walks
The probability that one given point joins another is then asymptotic to 1/(dn), since any pair of unmatched points is equally likely to be paired and the whole process has, by Corollary 2.2, matched at most n1/2+o(1) = o(n) pairs of points to this moment.
