From now on and until the end of the proof we will assume that n is even, n = 2p with p positive integer.

The proof of Theorem 7 depends on three lemmas, whose proofs we will postpone until after the proof of the theorem.
On the existence of absolutely simple abelian varieties of a given dimension over an arbitrary field
Similarly, we define T s k (π) to be the following standard k -of-n testing strategy: Perform the tests in order of permutation π until at least k 0’s have been observed, or until n − k + 1 1’s have been observed, whichever comes first.
Max-Throughput for (Conservative) k-of-n Testing
With each kernel choice, the time interval until the velocity noise jumps is shorter as the number of particles is increased, but for a given number of particles the time interval until the velocity noise jumps is longer if the quintic kernel is used.

Photons are tracked until they reach a distance of rr = 10, 000 or until they get too close to the event horizon.
Tests of General Relativity in the Strong Gravity Regime Based on X-Ray Spectropolarimetric Observations of Black Holes in X-Ray Binaries
The algorithm is sequential: it starts with all hypotheses being unclassified and then proceeds taking samples until all but a certain number of hypotheses have been classified or until a certain effort is reached.
MMCTest - A Safe Algorithm for Implementing Multiple Monte Carlo Tests
The algorithm runs until at most c ≥ 0 hypotheses are classified or until the total number of samples drawn reaches a pre-specified upper limit kmax .

Orbiting bodies remain floating until they extract sufficient angular momentum from the BH, or until perturbations or nonlinear effects disrupt the orbit.
Astrophysical black holes as natural laboratories for fundamental physics and strong-field gravity
This goes on until all patterns contained in the external stimulus have been retrieved or until the neurons of the first pool have recovered sufficiently to be excited again.

This means that orbits should be integrated until they uniformly cover their resonant tori (in the case of regular orbits) or until they uniformly sample the invariant measure (in the case of chaotic orbits).
Nonuniqueness and Structural Stability of Self-Consistent Models of Elliptical Galaxies
We see that ρ grows linearly, until a point of the Cantor set is hit, and then it stays constant until a bigger void is found.
Porosities and dimensions of measures satisfying the doubling condition
After several collisions, particles start to cluster and the moments of the cluster size distribution grow until they reach their “saturation” value . A numerical analysis reveals that the increase in M1 and M2 is mainly due to one large cluster which grows until it reaches its maximum size.
Cluster Growth in two- and three-dimensional Granular Gases
On the other hand, models including mass loss (and other ingredients, like rotation) until recently did not not follow the evolution until the final explosion and thus completely miss the explosive part of the yield of 26Al .
Astrophysical constraints from gamma-ray spectroscopy
The Larmor radii are much larger than the mean particle spacing, n−1/3 until r ∼ 30Rg and the flow is optically thick until then.
