In poetry:

A process in the weather of the heart
Turns damp to dry; the golden shot
Storms in the freezing tomb.
A weather in the quarter of the veins
Turns night to day; blood in their suns
Lights up the living worm.
"A Process In The Weather Of The Heart" by Dylan Thomas
We dream of honour, and we get along.
Fate winged me, in the person of a cab
and your stance on the sand.
Think it across, in freezing wind: withstand
my blistered wish: flop, there, to his blind song
who pick up the tab.
"Dream Song 42: O journeyer, deaf in the mould, insane" by John Berryman
Now stands Soracte white with snow, now bend the laboring trees,
And with the sharpness of the frost the stagnant rivers freeze.
Pile up the billets on the hearth, to warmer cheer incline,
And draw, my Thaliarchus, from the Sabine jar the wine.
"A Roman Winter-Piece" by Roswell Martin Field

In science:

This leads to the asymptotic behavior of the freezing threshold stated in Eq. (77), and to the equivalence at large k of the exponents a, b, ν in the SAT and XORSAT problems. A systematic expansion in powers of 2−k of the deviations between the two models could be set up from this starting point.
On the freezing of variables in random constraint satisfaction problems
Hence the number of bits to freeze, is exactly Pj kj, and as stated in the lemma, this corresponds to the total entropy of Y (up to a o(n)).
Extracting randomness and dependencies via a matrix polarization
We prove that one can use the planted model up to a certain density, and so we want the freezing threshold to be below that density.
Frozen variables in random boolean constraint satisfaction problems
They indicate that in the energy range from a few GeV up to RHIC energies the observed hadrons originate from a system in chemical equilibrium along a unified freeze-out curve.
Experimental summary on global observables, hadron spectra and ratios
Slater-Jastrow wavefunction, the RPA pseudopotential tends to freeze out the exchange between opposite spin electrons and may cause ergodicity problems, which show up in spin correlations[14, 16].
Charge and spin correlations of a one dimensional electron gas on the continuum
In these studies, the kinetic freeze-out temperature saturates at a value Tf .o. ≈ 120 MeV at SPS energy, which may be expected to persist up to the LHC.
Predictions for the LHC heavy ion programme
It further proceeds at lower densities up to the global freeze-out because the freeze-out front moves not faster than with the speed of sound, like any perturbation in the hydrodynamics.

Recents experimental findings on the properties of the chemical and kinetic freeze-out are reviewed, including data from low energies (SPS) over RHIC, up to recent results from the LHC.
Is there Life after Hadronization? An Experimental Overview
After r-process freeze-out, the neutrino flux is assumed to decay exponentially on a characteristic timescale ˆτ . A few hours after freeze-out, the r-process material catches up with the previously ejected supernova material, implanting r-process nuclei into the earlier formed diamonds.
Neutrino fluence after r-process freeze-out and abundances of Te isotopes in presolar diamonds
Such microscopic and macroscopic (hydrodynamical) models attempt to describe the full time-evolution from an assumed initial state of the heavy ion reaction (i.e. the two colliding nuclei) up to the freeze-out of all initial and produced particles after the reaction.

The case vi = 0 is trivial in so far as this amounts to cutting the lattice Z into finite segments in which after some time all particles pile up at the right boundary of the segment and the dynamics freeze.
