In science:

This is of course an artefact due to our neglecting inertial terms, which suppresses the“mechanical instability” that always destabilises this branch.
A simple model for heterogeneous flows of yield stress fluids
The geometrical meaning of the appearance of the complex manifolds in field theory is absolutely unclear, but, as we see below, it is rather natural to consider this phenomenon as an ”artefact” of string theory.
String Theory or Field Theory?
Thus massless excitations are gauge artefacts.
Translational groups as generators of gauge transformations
It is obvious that this solution is a gauge artefact since one can choose the arbitrary vector field Λµ = Aµ so as to make this solution vanish.
Translational groups as generators of gauge transformations
However, such solutions can be gauged away by choosing the arbitrary field Λµ(x) = Aµ (x) which shows that massless excitations are gauge artefacts.
Translational groups as generators of gauge transformations
Remark 3.4 The assumption (2.4) that Gq be finite is not just an artefact of the proofs.

Otherwise it can equally well be regarded as an artefact.

We have seen so far that the ǫ ≪ 1 constraint is an artefact of the linearized background approximation and that by including non-linear effects flux compactifications of heterotic M-theory do not require this constraint.

The lines correspond to models with different efficiencies, ǫ, The oscillations that appear at late times for very low luminosities are numerical artefacts caused by the finite resolution of the mass shells.

However, there are minor imaging artefacts, namely very weak sidelobes: This is readily explained by the fact that the Fourier transform of a well localised PSF in real space is extended and affected by the cutoff at the Nyquist frequency kNyquist, which induces a sin(kNyquist x)/ x-like modulation.
Coded mask imaging of extended sources with Gaussian random fields
If a source is observed at large off-axis angles, the shadowgram cast by the coded mask onto the detector is incomplete and reconstruction artefacts emerge in the correlation function.

It has been suggested that the divergence in the writhe distribution seen in Ref. is an artefact of the Fuller formulation of the writhe and will not be present in a CW formulation.
