In science:

Notice that in all cases g↑↑ (r) must vanish at short distances due to the Pauli exclusion principle.
Theory of ultracold Fermi gases
Notice that at short relative distances |z − z ′ | = 0 the anti-bunching effect is masked by the positive contribution of the autocorrelation term to the density correlation function (68).
Theory of ultracold Fermi gases
On the other hand, the conduction time-scale, τc, decreases linearly with L and so conduction becomes more effective at transporting heat for short wavelengths, just as noticed by Ballai (2003), for example.
Prominence seismology using small amplitude oscillations
SEDs at late times show noticeably less short-wavelength emission.
Evolutionary Signatures in the Formation of Low-Mass Protostars. II. Towards Reconciling Models and Observations
In short GRBs with duration ≪ tpeak the afterglow should also be separated from the prompt emission in time, and the peak could be noticed even in the BATSE data (at hν > 20 keV). A possible detection of such a peak at tens of seconds (an excess in a time-averaged profile of 76 short GRBs) was recently reported .
Prompt Emission and Early Afterglows of Gamma-Ray Bursts
Noticeable deviations from bulk gold measurements are observed at short wavelengths and for individual particles even after taking into c(cid:13) 2008 Optical Society of America account finite-size surface damping effects.
Measurement of the complex dielectric constant of a single gold nanoparticle
The time scale t ∼ 1/∆ over which nonresonant effects become noticeable is therefore shortened. (iii) For weak pulses the system is never in the KapitzaDirac regime, i.e., forward scattering always dominates over backward scattering, even at short times.
Sequential superradiant scattering from atomic Bose-Einstein condensates

At this point I just notice that, if elliptical galaxies formed the bulk of their stars in a short initial burst, the maximum delay time of their inhabiting SNIa precursors must be on the order of a Hubble time, or more.
