To doing things about a house, and I
Can sweep the floor, and make a fire, too,
And mind the children.

The line so firm and free;

Her ancient promises well,
Though o'er her bloom and greenness sweeps,

And sweeps an arm the height an eagle wins;
And in his breast a mouthless well
Heaves the worn patches of his coat of skins.

Sweeps over her hearth like the deadly simoom,
Leaving want, woe, and shame, desolation and gloom.

Who mourns when Fate comes round,
And one may sleep down in the deep
As well as those beneath the heap
That fifty stormy years will sweep
And trample to the ground.”

In the case α2 ≪ ˜ε Eq. (14) yields the well known result for the linear sweep P ∼= 1 − ε, as it should be for small enough nonlinearity.
Effects of nonlinear sweep in the Landau-Zener-Stueckelberg effect
Meanwhile, groundbreaking experiments in magnetoassociation of a Na condensate demonstrated a tunable scattering length, as well strong condensate losses for sweeps of the magnetic field across resonance .
Improved efficiency of stimulated Raman adiabatic passage in photoassociation of a Bose-Einstein condensate
This effect can be clearly seen in the lower panels of Figure 2. A problem encountered with observations from La Palma resulted from the use of the German equatorial mount. A well-known flaw of the German equatorial mount is that it is impossible to sweep continuously from east to west in one movement.
