At sight of lash uplifted;

In science:

Impurities with weak interaction values shift the Hubbard gap to a density off half-filling.
Disorder and Impurities in Hubbard-Antiferromagnets
On the contrary, the couplings are defined at some low-energy scale k = µ ≪ Λ and the UV cut-off is shifted towards infinity in the RPE, and the RG tra jectories are followed just in the opposite direction, towards large momenta.
Renormalization of composite operators
In brief: when Vg is changed over a sufficiently large range to see Coulomb oscillations (∼ e/Cg ≃ 1 V), sudden rigid shifts in the background off-set charge Q0 are encountered at random values of Vg, which spoil the 2e-periodicity which would have been expected otherwise.
Review: Superconductivity in ultrasmall metallic grains
This violates the equivalence of all inertial frames that is postulated in DSR theories. A signal of DSR in threshold reactions would be a shift of the threshold energies for reactions that do occur, such as the GZK reaction or γ -ray annihilation off the infrared background .

This is largely due to the fact that the spectrum shifts toward lower energies as one moves off-axis (Figure 4.3).
