Along its southward sloping hill,
And overlooks on either hand

Beneath the stars’ eternal light;

Vigilant, peering thro’ the night.

In science:

Traditional techniques using singularity avoiding slicings will not be able to follow such a collision since problems associated with the stretching of the slice typically cause simulations to crash or to become extremely inaccurate in time scales far shorter than the orbital time scale.

For these reasons, we feel that the link between stretching and conductivity is far from proven.

It is to the point to stress that the association of the stretching and folding with the boundedness makes it universal tool for bringing about the chaoticity. Remember, that so far it has been associated with the chaos of the low-dimensional chaotic dynamical systems only.
Fluctuations and Long-Term Stability: from Coherence to Chaos
The amount of changes we do illustrates the problems and what can be done, but also perhaps what should not be done, as the concept is stretched too far.
Remarks on Inheritance Systems
Being highly dependent on the quality of the RPA solution, the applicability of the FRPA only stretches so far as the applicability of the RPA.
Faddeev Random Phase Approximation applied to molecules
However, due to stretching and separation, the discretization becomes gradually a less accurate description of the smooth field to be approximated; this effect is far from uniform in phase space, and the putative O(N 2 ) operation count therefore only holds approximately at an initial stage.

The calibration techniques used so far are based on one observable parameter, the lightcurve width, which can be parametrized either as ∆m15 (decline in magnitudes for a SN Ia in the first 15 days after B -band maximum, see ), or a stretch factor (which linearly scales the time axis, see ).

The matter Q is far away (several miles for a typical astrophysical hole) from the place where the spacelike slice is stretching and producing quanta, so its information does not influence the state of the created pairs.

On the other hand, the reason Λ was introduced at all is that in a reference frame that moves very close to the speed of light, the length of a single causal link ”stretches out” very far coordinatewise.

In fact, since most of the values of v are arbitrary close to the light cone, the Alexandrov sets corresponding to these v ”stretch out” arbitrary far coordinate-wise, which results in arbitrary large error in computting Lagrangian density for non-linear φ.
