  • First, the asymptotic results provide a very reasonable approximation for the velocity even for a much lower level of cooperativity.

  • For participants in the glue group, similar approximation was achieved with single circumferential application of tissue glue.

  • Here's a nice little political survey which gives you an approximation of where you are on the political spectrum.

  • In the Appendix, we use small v approximations to derive simple analytic approximations for the quantitative results from the models.
