In science:

JP AH the power emitted by PAHs computed with the PAH absorption cross-section of Verstraete & L´eger (1992).
Density structure of the Horsehead nebula photo-dissociation region
Instead, in the literature there are several approaches to use bootstrap methods based on the studentized statistic Tρ, ˆC ( ˆµ) introduced in Equation (2.1). A simple approach along those lines is taken in Choquet, L’Ecuyer, and L´eger (1999).
A Geometric Approach to Confidence Sets for Ratios: Fieller's Theorem, Generalizations, and Bootstrap
Kuchner (2003) and L´eger et al. (2004) first proposed that waterrich planets might be prevalent on orbits accessible to transit and radial velocity detections, although no such planets have been conclusively discovered so far.
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
The presence of significant quantities of CO2 could have dramatic effects on the evolution and thermal structure of a water planet, maintaining the steam atmosphere in a hot state (L´eger et al. 2004).
Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b

Even at the high resolution of the ISOSWS, the bands do not break up into a family of lines (as suggested e.g. by L´eger et al., 1989).
A Mid-Infrared and Far-Infrared View of Galaxies
Some of these bands are widely believed to be characteristic of the bending and stretching modes of C=C and C–H bonds in aromatic molecules (e.g. fluorescent emission of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons or PAHs; Leger & Puget 1984, Allamandolla et al. 1985).
Spatial distribution of emission in Unidentified Infrared Bands from Midcourse Space Experiment Survey
Ze begrepen wel dat de stormloop van leger, bevolking en pers hen het werk anders onmogelijk zou maken.
Radio Pulsars
Among the main nonthermal desorption mechanisms, important in cold clouds, are: (i) cosmic–ray bombardment (especially by the heavier nuclei; L´eger et al. 1985; Hasegawa & Herbst 1993), and (ii) the energy generated by chemical surface reactions, still debatable (Willacy & Millar 1998; Takahashi & Williams 2000).
Chemical processes in star forming regions
In fact, it is known (Leger & Puget 1984, Draine & Anderson 1985) that the MRN underestimates the number density of very small grains.
Microwave Emission by Dust: Mechanisms, Properties and Prospects for ISM Studies
PAH EMISSION Observations with ISO and Spitzer have shown that the presence of PAHs (Leger & Puget 1984; Allamandola et al. 1985) can be used as an indicator of star-formation (e.g. Förster Schreiber et al. 2004; Peeters et al. 2004).
