In science:

D and on the choice of the functions Pout (n) and Pin (n).
SPHERICALLY SYMMETRIC RANDOM WALKS II. DIMENSIONALLY DEPENDENT CRITICAL BEHAVIOR
First, we derive a formal solution for Gn,t that is valid for general Pout and Pin .
SPHERICALLY SYMMETRIC RANDOM WALKS II. DIMENSIONALLY DEPENDENT CRITICAL BEHAVIOR
At time t + 1 it has moved outwards to layer (j + 1) or (for j > 0) inwards to layer (j − 1) or within the same layer (j ), with probabilities pout(j ) or pin (j ) or pstay (j ), respectively.
Random walk on disordered networks
Note that, pin (j ) + pout (j ) + pstay (j ) = 1, since the walker must move at each time-step.
Random walk on disordered networks
The probability pout (j ) is proportional to the number of paths connecting layer (j ) with layer (j + 1).
Random walk on disordered networks
The quantity Nd(j )pout(j ) is related to the properties of the structure around the central cell, and asymptotically it scales as K (j ) (see Eqs.(3) and (4)).
Random walk on disordered networks
In a cellular system with intrinsic dimension df the number of cells per layer have the asymptotic behaviour K (j ) ∝ j df −1, thus Nd(j )pout (j ) ∼ K (j ) ∼ j df −1 .
Random walk on disordered networks
Having done that we may then integrate over azimuth on the sphere and obtain another estimate of the β distribution, which we call Pout(β ).
An Investigation into the Geometry of Seyfert Galaxies
Clearly if Pin and Pout are the same (or do not differ significantly), then we have a good estimate of the real β distribution.
An Investigation into the Geometry of Seyfert Galaxies
In Figure 4 we show the result obtained for Pout(β ), using the input assumption that Pin (β ) corresponds to random jet orientations, or in other words, the input assumption is that each jet could lie anywhere randomly along the great circle defined by i and δ .
