Using the stochastic control to solve the HJB equation is a complex mathematical process, especially in the case of increasing the control variables, which will be more complex nonlinear partial differential equations.
They are released following a mathematical process called mining where people use computer processing power to generate the code.
The poem, selected according to the commentator "because of Morriseau-Leroy's exploration of colonial legacies, neocolonial or postcolonial challenges, and general commitment to issues of social justice" grapples with issues of implied address, considerably more flexible pronouns than English, and a Creole-language meter that begins in iamb and devolves into "a heterogeneous (and wild) company of anapests, trochees, iambs, and spondees." Even the first three lines of the brief, nine-line poem illustrate that translation is far more complex an art than a simple mathematical process of replacing each word in Creole with its counterpart in English; the trot provided, while fascinating, is clearly lacking as a poem in English.
