In science:

Timings were observed to be consistent across runs, even when using automated tuning.
High-Order Discontinuous Galerkin Methods by GPU Metaprogramming
We have therefore written a wrapper to the pipeline that automates the processing of large sets of images. A single command now runs the complete end-to end pipeline: looping over image sets, finding transients, identifying transients detected across multiple nights, and generating lightcurves for all transients.
Large-Scale Image Processing with the ROTSE Pipeline for Follow-Up of Gravitational Wave Events
PSF normalized to 1, o runs across objects detected in the image and Φo is the flux of object o.
Improved Photometric Calibration of the SNLS and the SDSS Supernova Surveys
This features prohibits “gluon” lines that run across the “gluon” vertex and hence the only “vertex” corrections are, from a covariant point of view, corrections to the propagators.
Dynamical vertex mass generation and chiral symmetry breaking on the light-front
However it must be emphasised that they are not independent of each other, as the run correction errors are correlated across all measurements from a run.
The peculiar motions of early-type galaxies in two distant regions - II. The spectroscopic data
This requires that the same OS should run across multiple architectures.
Cluster Computing White Paper
Figure 15. B-field contours across the storage region in E821, averaged in azimuth, for succeeding run cycles.
The Muon Anomaly: Experiment and Theory
This was found to be because the PMT calibration characteristics were dependent on the readout history of the PMT, compounded in non-central 16N calibration runs by a readout rate gradient across the detector.
First Results from the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory
The break-out and the filamentary structure of the limb as well as a bright filament running across the middle of the image are clearly visible.
X-rays from Supernova Remnants
This detector will uniquely allow measurements of neutrino interactions across a very broad range of energies (the NuMI beam can run in low, medium, and high energy modes).

The mean instrumental polarization across the array varied from 0.23% – 0.38% on different observing runs.
350 micron Polarimetry from the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory
However implementing such a Rao-Blackwellisation scheme efficiently appears non-trivial, with the only simple approach being to run noisy ABC independently on the same data set, and then to average the estimates across each of these runs.

The transition does not appear to be related to the change in PA that runs diagonally across Fig. 9 (seen as changing colour); that is probably a foreground effect.

For Nf = 3 we use the value αs (MZ ) = 0.1184 [122] and run it across the quark thresholds down to µ = 2 GeV, using the four-loop RG β -function.
Review of lattice results concerning low energy particle physics
As shown in the aforementioned work, currents J⊥ that run perpendicular to the flow can arise from either vorticity or from the variations of the Bernoulli constant across field lines.
