Edge play


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Edge play a kind of swordplay in which backswords or cutlasses are used, and the edge, rather than the point, is employed.

Upon its fellow, while an amber ray
Slants up among the tree-tops like a wedge
Of liquid gold—to play

Oak tree at the forest's edge
why does this soft winged peace
overcome me, defeat me
when I lie in your shadow
while you caress me
with your playful leaves?
"The Oak" by Lucian Blaga
But when sultry suns are high
Underneath the oak I lie
As it shades the water's edge,
And I mark my line, away
In the wheeling eddy, play,
Tangling with the river sedge.

Sang to herself at careless play,
And fell into the stream. 'Dismay!
Help, you the standers-by!' None stirred.

Through a hundred disguises we can't mistake him,
Whose play is all earnest, whose wit is the edge
(With a beetle behind) of a sham-splitting wedge.

In science:

The edges which do not lie on triangles play an important role in our analysis, but it is reasonable to suspect that they are uniformly distributed among the edges.
The diamond-free process
Recall that when we cut the isolated vertices from the appearances of K4, this involved deleting three edges for each isolated vertex that we created, which crucially meant that we had enough edges to play with when we wanted to turn these isolated vertices into a component isomorphic to H .
The evolution of uniform random planar graphs
We observe that, in this situation, we have all 4-colored propagators coming into play; thus, in admissible graphs, multiple edges may appear.
Biquantization of symmetric pairs and the quantum shift
We find that if the disk is massive enough and the effects of self-gravity come into play, a weak bump-like structure at the gap edge appears in the near-infrared (NIR) scattered light, while no such bump-like structure is seen in the sub-mm dust continuum image.
The Structure of a Self-Gravitating Protoplanetary Disk and its Implications to Direct Imaging Observations
We have seen that the bump structure at the gap edge in the NIR observations reflects the fact that the disk self-gravity comes into play in determining the vertical structure of the disk.

The definition of the signed trace gives that the orientation of the edges plays a minor role.
Uniform existence of the integrated density of states on metric Cayley graphs
By Corollary 3.6 (with a, b playing the role of c, d), all the leaf edges of B that emanate from a and b lie on the same side of the line l(a, b), w.l.o.g., l(a, b)+ (see Figure 5).

We play this game on-line; that is, our choice can depend on the graph up to this point, but not on future pairs of edges.
