Apart from each, but with a lake between,
Will keep up converse, losing not a word,
Because the faithful waters like between.
"Agnes Died" by Alexander Anderson

In science:

As a kind of converse, we prove that a Jacobi structure can be defined on the base space of a generalized Lie bialgebroid.
Generalized Lie bialgebroids and Jacobi structures
As a kind of converse, it was proved in that the base space of a Lie bialgebroid is a Poisson manifold.
Generalized Lie bialgebroids and Jacobi structures
Conversely, a local Lie algebra structure on C ∞ (M, R) induces a Jacobi structure on M [9, 14].
Generalized Lie bialgebroids and Jacobi structures
Conversely, a structure of local Lie algebra on C ∞ (M, R) defines a Jacobi structure on M (see [9, 14]).

Because of the difficulty of a direct measure, the amount of molecular gas (H2 ) is often inferred from easier measurement of CO emission lines, assumed an H2/CO conversion.
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
The gas mass is usually estimated from mm-wave CO line emission and from mm continuum observations of dust emission (assuming suitable conversion factors for H2/CO and dust/gas).
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
As observed in the Solar Neighborhood, a good approximation to the IMF in such relatively quiescent environments is the Salpeter law with standard low-mass cutoff, corresponding to a mass–energy conversion efficiency ǫ ∼ 0.001.
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
The amount of baryons processed in this phase and the conversion efficiency ǫ have to account for the combined constraint set by eqs.(13.32) and (13.34), that is to provide a huge amount of energy with essentially no much stellar remnant in the local populations.
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
Assumed that η should not be lower than 0.1, this may require a stellar mass-energy conversion efficiency ǫ >> 0.001, which is further independent support to the idea of a top-heavy IMF during the SB phase.
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
Using the [OIII] luminosities given in Figure 1 of Bicknell et al. (1998) along with their equation (1) (or their radio powers and conversion factors given in Figure 1) we find that the kinetic energy (power) of the strongest radio jets are ∼> 1046 erg s−1 .
