In science:
In section II we recall the connection between the survival probability ΦN (t) and the so-called ﬁxed trap survival probability (i.e., the survival probability when the trap is placed at a given distance) and give the basics of the extended Rosenstock approximation.
Multiparticle trapping problem in the half-line
It is worth emphasizing that if these probabilities were independent of each other, the probability to ﬁnd a completely order band would be the product of the probabilities for each state, i.e., the product of the diagonal elements of the matrices shown in Tables II, III and IV.
A study of randomness, correlations and collectivity in the nuclear shell model
In each step the RW will vary his direction with probability p: at right with probability p/2 or at left with the same probability.
Small-Worlds, Mazes and Random Walks
More precisely we introduce the quantity sT (i, c) that is deﬁned as the probability of ﬁnding pT (i, c) = 1, in the same way sF (i, c) is the probability of ﬁnding pT (i, c) = 0 and sI (i, c) is the probability of ﬁnding 0 < pT (i, c) < 1.
On the probabilistic approach to the random satisfiability problem
The transition probabilities of RWIDF are p(cid:0)(g , x), (gh, y )(cid:1) = p(x, y )µx,y (h) (assuming that X is countable), where µx,y are probability measures on X , and p(x, y ) are the transition probabilities of the quotient chain on X .
