a glass of tepid milk
and a shot of Holland gin
which Precosia does not drink.

Wherever feet have gone,
The New Chums fought while eye-glass dudes
And Johnnies led them on.

We heard the crash of falling steel and glass.

In science:

In particular, systems of vibro-fluidized glass beads in an cylinder has some similarities with the device used for the shot peening [8; 9].
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
The Fano factor F calculated in an uncorrelated final-state “shot-glass” model does not give an accurate answer even with the exact gap-distribution statistics.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
The authors of demonstrated the relation between the secondary particle energy spread in the final state and the Fano factor by using an illustrative model called the “shot-glass” model.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
In this model, the SEB process is analogous to filling a number of small-volume shot-glasses from a bathtub until the latter is emptied.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
Figure 4 compares the computed values of F for the shot-glass model, where Func (t) is given by Eq. (25), with exact results (Eq. B4) for the RPP model, both as functions of the line filling.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
Nevertheless, the shot-glass model remains attractive for its simplicity — as a 0-th order approximation — even though its use requires assumptions about the single-particle distribution that go beyond the model itself.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
The 1D HR model gives an upper bound estimate that is fairly crude compared to the uncorrelated (shot glass) model, where the exact variance hδǫ2 i is plugged in.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
Both the shot glass and the 1D HR model require assumptions external to the model itself: the 1D HR model needs the filling factor ρ, while the shot glass model needs the variance hδǫ2 i (derived here from the exact singleparticle distribution).
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
Owing to the termination of the branching process at intermediate values of the filling time, the uncorrelated approximation becomes substantially less reliable. A subtle conceptual problem with the uncorrelated approximation can be illustrated by a mock shot-glass model.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
Imagine that the man with the shot-glass watches what he is doing and compensates for an underfilled shot by following it with a shot with more than average filling, so that two successive glasses together scoop similar amount of water.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
Final state models, such as the “shot-glass” model, are widely used for estimation of the Fano factor in semiconductors, but they entirely neglect these correlations.
Correlation effects in sequential energy branching: an exact model of the Fano statistics
We have considered the best (using an exact gap distribution function) predictions of the shot-glass model for the random parking model.
