In science:

Our work also raises the real possibility that an appreciation of the complexity of many novel materials may be impossible without these remarkable broken symmetries, and it is important to search for such complex quantum order in an even wider class of Hamiltonians.

However, in the irreversible case, there are two differences between w and the actual work done that raise a question about the applicability of the Jarzynski identity.

The subsequent debate has raised controversies often pursued by Ciufolini and Pavlis (2005) in a way completely inappropriate for scientific works, both for content and language.
An assessment of the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect in the Earth gravity field, in reply to: ``On the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect using the nodes of the LAGEOS satellites, in reply to ``On the reliability of the so far performed tests for measuring the Lense-Thirring effect with the LAGEOS satellites'' by L. Iorio,'' by I. Ciufolini and E. Pavlis
Working with these reweighted theories allows one to avoid the possibility, raised at the end of the previous subsection, that non-localities can somehow invalidate the perturbative analysis of RG scaling. I now return to sketch the argument leading to the assumption that |Dn | is bounded and vanishes as a f → 0.
Rooted staggered fermions: good, bad or ugly?
If such breaking occurs, however, it raises the questions of what the fate of the Nambu-Goldstone modes is, whether a Higgs mechanism can occur, and whether additional massive modes (analogous to the Higgs particle) can appear. A summary of some recent work looking at these questions is presented here.
