CHARLIE Exactly. My aggregation model will filter through the characteristics of the victims searching for the strongest attributes in order to determine their most likely choice of seat.

LARRY -- speaking of rearranging molecules... did you see where Professor Eric Kolokoff has developed a new kind of graphene- based digital paper... They back against the table. Larry stares at the screen.

A planar hexagonal lattice is rolled up
into a cylinder. This can be an illustration of
how a graphene sheet forms a nanotube of "armchair" geometry.

CHARLIE My program analyzed the DVD's... (then) We're cool, it's all legit. I'm under instructions from the LAPD to info share with the FBI. (then) I got results by using a Hidden Markov Model...

Consider a system that is always in one of *n* states, numbered 1 through *n*. Every time a clock ticks, the
system updates itself according to an *n*×*n* matrix of transition probabilities, the (*i,j*)th entry of which gives the probability that the
system moves from state *i* to state *j* at any clock tick. A Markov chain is a system like this, in which
the next state depends only on the current state and not on previous states. Powers of the transition matrix approach a
matrix with constant columns as the power increases. The number to which the entries in the *i*th column converge
is the asymptotic fraction of time the system
spends in state *i*.

CHARLIE (cont'd) -- similarly, the data you presented appears to be an average distribution of police work. ON SCREEN - data appears... CHARLIE (cont'd) Until, like the stereogram, you continue to stare or look at the same data over and over again... (data changes) And a hidden pattern emerges.
