Flung to the furnaces, vomiting fire,
Jumbled in white-heaten masses disshapen…
Writhing in flame-tortured levers of iron…

With awe-inspiring grandeur stood unfurl'd;
From pole to pole, it spanned this reeling world,
And, on its turning axis, rode sublime.

And fix it on your whirling table;
Place the electrodes firm and sure
As near the axis as you’re able,
And soon you’ll learn the way to work it,
With galvanometer in circuit.

This implies that if we delete the twist and the spin ﬁelds and thus remove the cut generated by them, the boundary conditions imposed on the positive real axis of the z -plane is expected to be identical to those imposed on the negative real axis.
Worldsheet and Spacetime Properties of p-p' System with B Field and Noncommutative Geometry
Longslit absorption line spectra along the ma jor axis (3.5 hours integration) and the minor axis (4 hours) of NGC 2985 were obtained with the ISIS spectrograph on the William Herschel Telescope in the ﬁrst week of January 1997.

Along this axis the observed dispersions are a combination of the tangential and the vertical velocity dispersion components while the minor axis measures the radial and vertical components.
