In poetry:

Pause and ponder: who could write
A triolet or roundelay
While a Megatherium yawped all night
And a Hesperornis yamped all day,
While now and again the bray sonorous
Of Glyptodon Asper swelled the chorus?
"Extinct Monsters" by Eugene Field

In science:

In Au, the asperity necks down to a single atom thick bridge at separation.
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
Most contact problems are intrinsically multiscale; involving atomic bonding, nano-scale asperities, defect nucleation, elastic and plastic deformation, surface roughness, far-field loading, etc.
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
This results in an asperity that is broadening symmetrically during loading.
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
Between point C and D, a force drop occurs, corresponding to the decrease of one atomic plane in the asperity as shown in Figs. 6(a),(c).
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
This takes place through a series of slip events that have the effect of expelling the defects outside of the asperity region. (Figs. 6(c),(d)).
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
Both cracks and dislocations are nucleated at the asperity/substrate contact (Fig. 8).
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
In particular, from the top view, we observe how plastic events occur mainly near the outer surface of the asperity, while in the center we observe fracture, as seen from the near perfection in the crosssections in Fig. 8(b),(d).
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
When stress is applied in the [0001] direction, we find that dislocations nucleate in the corners of the asperity/substrate contact, as seen in Fig. 5 (a) and (b).
Asperity contacts at the nanoscale: comparison of Ru and Au
