## being

Note that M being cyclic implies F is cyclic.

The probability of X being rational equals 1/2.

This is exactly our definition of a weight being regulated.

In addition to f being convex, we require that......

Here J is defined to equal Af, the function f being as in (3). [= where
the function f is......; * not*: “being the function f as in'']

......, the constant C being independent of......

The ideal is defined by m=......, it being understood that......

But......, it being impossible to make A and B intersect. [= since
it is impossible to make......]

The map F being continuous, we can assume that......

Actually, S has the much stronger property of being convex.

This method has the disadvantage of not being intrinsic.

[Do not write: “the function f being the solution of (1)'' if you mean:
* the function f that is the solution of (1).*]
