The fruitless wish that banishes repose;
Still be that heart a stranger to delight,
Which poorly triumphs in another's woes.

Did not excite thee, we should wholly sink.

In brief excitement for the wind;
They hold a breathless final talk,
And when their filmy cables part
One almost hears a little cry.

In science:

If V ⊂ Z3 is any set and x ∈ Z3 is a point, then an ǫ-excited random walk starting from (x, V) is an ǫ-excited random walk such that R(0) = x, and such that if R(n) ∈ V then rule 1 above is applies to it regardless of the past of R, i.e. all vertices in V are considered “visited”.
Excited random walk in three dimensions has positive speed
They are deconfined ±1/2 excitations which are completely different excitations from merons which are confined logarithmically.

However, when considering vortex excitations to be discussed in the following ei ˜θ+ (~x) may not be single valued, therefore the fundamental angle variable is θ+ instead of ˜θ+ . (2) Spin-wave excitation: While the spin sector has a neutral gapless mode.

They are the lowest charged excitations in BLQH and the main dissipation sources for the charge transports. A duality transformation ( See Eqn.42 ) can be easily performed to express low energy physics in terms of the dynamics of these topological excitations.
Mutual Composite Fermion and composite Boson approaches to balanced and imbalanced bilayer quantum Hall system: an electronic analogy of the Helium 4 system
Because any excitations with nonvanishing m− will be confined, so any deconfined excitations must have m− = 0 which implies m1 = m2 = m and m+ = 2m.

Note on q-Dual Theories
It is argued that the string order parameter takes a finite value but the excitation energy gap is zero in the quantum Griffiths phase.13,30 Therefore, it is possible to identify this phase comparing the excitation gap results and the string order results.

Eq is gapless then also the spin excitations are gapless and the spin structure factor Sq ∼ q, whereas, if min(Eq ) > 0, the spin excitation spectrum has a gap and Sq ∼ q2 .

In the case of the normal phase the particle-particle excitations in the vector channels would be to be articulated as the particle-hole excitations.) The last contribution from only the antiparticle excitations is just negligible so that we shall always omit it in our discussion.

We note, however, that the excitation gap in the dg -ur (dr-ug ) quasi-quark spectrum is always smaller than T so that these quasi-quarks are thermally-excited irrespective of whether the system is in the 2SC phase or the g2SC phase.

More recently, the authors of Ref. have derived the zero-temperature 2−pair excitation tail and generalized it to all interaction strengths (full multi-pair excitation continuum) with the help of a spin-1/2 Heisenberg chain model (equivalent to spinless fermions, see [7,8]) and its related bosonic representation.

Fig. 4 shows the distributions of exchange times, defined as the time between successive events (either excitation 0 → 1 or a de-excitation 1 → 0) at a particular position in the fluid, and the persistence times, which measure the time a local region takes before it is either excited or de-excited for the first time.
