  Miller test - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Miller test is the United States Supreme Court's test for determining whether speech or expression can be labeled obscene, in which case it is not protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and can be prohibited.
The Miller test was developed in the 1973 case Miller v.
Another important issue is that Miller asks for an interpretation of what the "average" person finds offensive, rather than what the more sensitive persons in the community are offended by, as obscenity was defined by the previous test, the Hicklin test, stemming from the English precedent.

 Miller-Rabin primality test - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Miller-Rabin primality test or Rabin-Miller primality test is a primality test: an algorithm which determines whether a given number is prime, similar to the Fermat primality test and the Solovay-Strassen primality test.
The Miller-Rabin test is strictly stronger than the Solovay-Strassen primality test in the sense the set of strong liars of the Miller-Rabin test is a subset of the set of the Solovay-Strassen primality test.
The full power of the generalized Riemann hypothesis is not needed to ensure the correctness of the test: as we deal with subgroups of even index, it suffices to assume the validity of GRH for quadratic Dirichlet characters.

 Primality Proving 2.3: Strong probable-primality and a practical test
A test based on these results is quite fast, especially when combined with trial division by the first few primes.
It has been proven ([Monier80] and [Rabin80]) that the strong probable primality test is wrong no more than 1/4th of the time (3 out of 4 numbers which pass it will be prime).
Jon Grantham's "Frobenius pseudoprimes" can be used to create a test (see [Grantham98]) that takes three times as long as the SPRP test, but is far more than three times as strong (the error rate is less than 1/7710).

 Thomas Grier Miller (www.whonamedit.com)
Thomas Grier Miller received an A.B. from the University of North Carolina in 1906 and graduated in medicine from the University of Pennsylvania in 1911 and then commenced clinical investigation in the department of medicine, but this was interrupted by the 1st World War where he served in the army as a captain..
In 1926, Miller founded the Gastro Intestinal Section of the Medical Clinic at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and was chief of the section from 1928 to until his retirement in 1952.
Miller published on many areas of medicine, but concentrated mainly on gastroenterology and in 1934 commenced a series of papers with William Osler Abbott and W. Carr on intubation and studies of the small intestine which became classics and were made possible by the invention of the double lumen tube.

 [No title]
Agnew testified that he had Miller perform five tests: a horizontal gaze nystagmus test, a walk-and-turn test, a one-legged stand test, a balance test, and an alphabet recitation test, all of which were recorded on videotape.
Regarding the one-legged stand test, Agnew testified that he instructed Miller to raise one of his legs approximately 6 inches off the ground, keeping his toes pointed, and count out loud until he was told to stop.
Regarding the field sobriety tests, the district court stated that in its opinion, Miller passed the walk-and-turn test because it appeared from the videotape that Miller's toes were very close to his heel on each step.

 The Best Test Preparation for the Mat: Miller Analogies Test (Rea Test Preps)
This test preparation book includes eight full-length practice tests, as well as comprehensive reviews covering vocabulary words, foreign words and phrases, geography, history, social sciences, art, architecture, science, mythology, mathematics, philosophy, and more.
The REA review didn't have any questions like that in their practice tests, and it's hard to sit there during the test thinking "word jumbles??" and try to get your brain in that track.
With eight tests and next to no strategy, this book is ideal for a "disaster check" before you take the test--provided you use it as a supplement to other study guides.

 Wikinfo | Miller test
The Miller test was developed in the 1973 case Miller vs. California.
Some critics of obscenity law, such as Jonathan Wallace and William Huston (external links), argue that the existence of Miller proves that federal obscenity laws are in fact not defined, and thus unenforcable and legally dubious.
Since part of the Miller purpose was to consider the effect on the members of the community who would see the material for sale on the street it's unclear how material which goes directly from a vendor to a bedroom and is never seen by the community will be judged [3].

In the case where a test value is not a witness for the compositeness of a potential prime, it can only lie with a probability of at most 1/4.
I implemented a variant of the Rabin Miller algorithm as provided in Algorithm Design by Goodrich and Tamassia, which is stated in the comment preceeding the content of the recipe.
One thing to note is that I end up doing a HUGE number of tests (I had used 'k' as the number of tests, but that is generally used as # of bits) in comparison to what is generally suggested as being 'good enough'.

 Freedom of speech - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Under international law, restrictions on free speech are required to comport with a strict three part test: they must be provided by law, pursue an aim recognized as legitimate, and be necessary (i.e., proportionate) for the accomplishment of that aim.
Amongst the aims considered legitimate are protection of the rights and reputations of others (prevention of defamation), and the protection of national security and public order, health and morals.
Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote that "the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market, and that truth is the only ground upon which their wishes safely can be carried out." In Abrams v.

Miller worked his two previous rehab starts at Single A, with Sox affiliates in Greenville, S.C., and Wilmington, N.C., and gave up three runs in those starts, including a solo homer in each game.

Miller's show is not aimed at children (and I'm sure not viewed by many), and adults who enjoy bland entertainment can simply choose not to watch him.
Miller, whose share I believe is 1.1 is allowed to continue in spite of the fact that it's just pure drivel.
Miller appears to me to be one of a relatively new species, the "Schwarzenegger Republican"; tough on bad guys, tolerant of alternative lifestyles, favoring deregulation/tax-cutting/free markets -- unless, of course, it disadvantages him personally.
