In science:

Then (i) L is multiplicity-free. (ii) S acts on lords by fusion, transitively on the left and on the right. (iii) Lad E S is the left stabilizer and right stabilizer of any lord. (iv) Two lords m, l fuse to a coset of Lad in S, namely ml = {a ∈ S | ¯ma = l} = {a ∈ S | m = a¯l}.
Generalized Tambara-Yamagami categories
We write f, ˜f for arbitrary fusion systems on L with recoupling matrices F, ˜F ; a, b, c, d, e for arbitrary serfs; and m, l for arbitrary lords.

Kamerlingh Onnes’ finding ruled out Lord Kelvin hypothesis, and, one can say – adopting extremely loo se and non-rigorous interpretation of known now microscopic mechanisms of superconductivity – that superconductivity indeed complies with the τ-divergence notion.
Superinsulator-Superconductor Duality in Two Dimensions
The next step towards what might sound as a realization of the Lord Kelvin idea, was the finding that there exist two-d imensional superconducting systems, namely, Josephson junction arrays, granular and homogeneously disordered films, which unite both types of behavior, superconducting and insulating.
