  • Interesting fact: Some farmers in Japan have learned to grow their watermelons into a square shape. They did this to conserve shelf space
    • conservant Conserving; having the power or quality of preserving from decay or destruction. In the traditional Aristotelian philosophy, efficient causes are divided into procreant and conservant causes. The procreant cause is that which makes a thing to be which before was not; the conservant cause, that which causes an existent thing to endure.

In science:

While the conservation of R udN x is rather obvious from the RHS field Eq. (4), the conservation of R ub−a+1dN x is not so obvious.
Some General Results for Multi-dimensional Compactonsin Generalized N-dimensional KdV Equations
In the above equations, the conservation of the angular momentum in the strong-weak field can be gained when(cid:3)W = 0, and the energy conservation of the strong-weak field can be attained when N = 0.
Octonionic Strong and Weak Interactions and Their Quantum Equations
The Boltzmann-Gibbs principle states that non-conserved quantities oscillate faster than conserved quantities, and therefore when averaged in time, only the pro jections over the density field are observed.
Scaling limits for gradient systems in random environment
In these decompositions, however, in addition the terms appear gµν ¯cQ,G (t) with ¯cQ (t) = −¯cG (t) which account for non-conservation of the separate quark and gluon parts of the EMT, as only the total EMT is conserved.

We study the relaxational critical dynamics of the three-dimensional random anisotropy magnets with the non-conserved n-component order parameter coupled to a conserved scalar density.
Model C critical dynamics of random anisotropy magnets
Again, general arguments state [10, 11] that for such systems the relaxational critical dynamics of the non-conserved order parameter coupled to a conserved density, model C dynamics, degenerates to purely relaxation model without any couplings to conserved densities (model A).
Model C critical dynamics of random anisotropy magnets
The simplest dynamical model taking into account conserved densities is model C, [4, 14] which contains a static coupling between non-conserved n-dimensional order parameter ϕ and scalar conserved density m.
Model C critical dynamics of random anisotropy magnets
We can see that qualitatively, the three procedures behave as described above (Fieller slightly conservative, Hwang slightly liberal, geometric conservative), even for a small sample size n = 20 (results for larger n are similar, see supplement).
A Geometric Approach to Confidence Sets for Ratios: Fieller's Theorem, Generalizations, and Bootstrap
The above result is true as long as the underlying action is not conservative because Theorem 4.3 in Roy and Samorodnitsky (2008) ensures that the conservative part of the random field (see (2.4)) will be killed by the normalization (1.2) and hence the mixed moving average part will determine the convergence.
