    Stand for

    Hi,

    Could anyone please tell me what "stand for" means in the below sentence?
    The very large phenomenology of the cellular automata model and its apparently big complexity offer a good basis forapplications in cryptography (cellular automata are not the only dynamical systems applied in cryptography, and some of the basic principles of cryptography with cellular automata also stand for other dynamical systems).

    Thanks

    Re: Stand for



    I can honestly say I don't understand a word of that. I would assume it could be replaced with "applies to" but I can't be sure.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I don't think complexity can be either big or small.

    It's not "stand for." It's "also stand." And "for other systems."

    They "stand," as in hold true, or apply when dealing with other "dynamical" systems. (Should be "dynamic.")
