${P}_{\mathrm{i}}^{0}$  ${P}_{\mathrm{i}}^{0}\in \mathrm{{\mathbb{Z}}^{\mathrm{+}}}$  the initial rating for the $i$th player. We use the symbol $P$ and the superscript $0$ to represent the idea that we sometimes refer to the process of identifying the initial rating of the given player as Pass 0 of the ratings processor. 
${P}_{\mathrm{i}}^{1}$  ${P}_{\mathrm{i}}^{1}\in \mathrm{{\mathbb{Z}}^{\mathrm{+}}}$  the Pass 1 rating for the $i$th player. 
${\rho}_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}$  ${\rho}_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}\in \mathbb{Z}$  the points gained by the $i$th player in this tournament. Note here that we use the superscript $2$ to denote that this value is calculated and used in Pass 2 of the ratings processor. Further, ${\rho}_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}$ only exists for players who have a well defined Pass 1 Rating. For Players with an undefined Pass 1 Rating (unrated players), will have an undefined ${\rho}_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}$. 
$i$  $i\in [1,\mathrm{21}]\cap \mathbb{Z}$  the index of the player under consideration. $i$ can be as small as $1$ or as large as $\mathrm{21}$ for this tournament and the ith player must be a rated player.

$q$  $q\in [1,\mathrm{53}]\cap \mathbb{Z}$  the index of the match result under consideration. $q$ can be as small as $1$ or as large as $\mathrm{53}$ for this tournament and the qth match must be have both rated players as opponents. 
$g$  $g\in [1,5]\cap \mathbb{Z}$  the gth game of the current match result under consideration. $q$ can be as small as $1$ or as large as $5$ for this tournament assuming players play up to 5 games in a match. 
${P}_{\mathrm{k}}^{0}$  ${P}_{\mathrm{k}}^{0}\in \mathrm{{\mathbb{Z}}^{\mathrm{+}}}$  initial rating of the ith player's opponent from the kth match.

${B}_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}$  ${B}_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}\in \mathrm{{\mathbb{Z}}^{\mathrm{+}}}$  the largest of the Pass 2 Adjustments of opponents of the ith player against whom he/she won a match. 
${\alpha}_{\mathrm{k}}^{2}$  ${\alpha}_{\mathrm{k}}^{2}\in \mathrm{{\mathbb{Z}}^{\mathrm{+}}}$  the Pass 2 Adjustment of the player who was the opponent of the ith player in the kth match 
$I\left(x\right)$  $I:\mathbb{Z}\mapsto \mathrm{{\mathbb{Z}}^{\mathrm{+}}}$  a function that maps all integers to one of the values from  0, 1, 5, 10. 
${M}_{\mathrm{i}}$  ${M}_{\mathrm{i}}\in \mathrm{{\mathbb{Z}}^{\mathrm{+}}}$  total number of matches played by the ith player in this tournament
