By no means sooner than has a unmarried quantity been committed completely to the intrepid and disparate band of pilots who may declare to be Gladiator aces. Flying the last word British biplane fighter, pilots in China, Finland, East Africa, North Africa, Western Europe, the Mediterranean, Norway and the center East all scored the prerequisite 5 kills to develop into aces.

Sample text

One other point worth noting is that if one chooses the coordinates and momenta to be the set {Q λ }, H, t then the orbit is not convoluted at all in the space of these coordinates and momenta but is a straight line. This reveals the fact that ergodicity (or something equivalent) cannot hold for absolutely all choices of generalized coordinates and momenta. A full theory of how the microcanonical and canonical distributions arise from the microscopic orbit must take account of this and can only hope to show their validity for some overwhelmingly large set of choices of coordinates and momenta.

The quantity ∂ H 2 /∂ V − P 2 = ∂ H 2 /∂ V − ∂ H /∂ V ∂ H /∂ V is positive definite. 78) As long as the system is macroscopically homogeneous, the right hand side is easily seen to depend on the number of particles as N −1 so the fluctuations in the pressure are of order N −1/2 as expected. 80) for mechanical stability of a homogeneous system.
