In poetry:

Why the groove?
Why the lovely, bivalve roundnesses?
Why the ripple down the sphere?
Why the suggestion of incision?
"Peach" by D H Lawrence
One is incisive, corrosive:
Two retorts, nettled, curt, crepitant;
Three makes rejoinder, expansive, explosive;
Four overbears them all, strident and strepitant,
Five… O Danaides, O Sieve!
"Master Hugues Of Saxe-Gotha" by Robert Browning
My world is pyramid. The padded mummer
Weeps on the desert ochre and the salt
Incising summer.
My Egypt's armour buckling in its sheet,
I scrape through resin to a starry bone
And a blood parhelion.

Fond man, that canst believe her blood
Will from those purple channels flow;
Or that the pure untainted flood
Can any foul distemper know;
Or that thy weak steel can incise
The crystal case wherein it lies:

In science:

The random potentials V = {vjk }ν i (yi ) are assured by appropriate incisions in the probability space Rν .
Quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear random Schr\"odinger equations
Assume ǫ is small so that H has A.L. (1.17) is provided by using (A5-7) and restricting to the appropriate probability subspace, (2.10) and a direct incision in the frequency space.
Quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear random Schr\"odinger equations
As in [BW], we need to perform an incision in the frequency space, in order that inside any Λ(N ) ∈ E R(N ), there are at most N 1− pair-wise disjoint bad elementary regions at scale N0, where N 1− means N a (0 < a < 1).
Quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear random Schr\"odinger equations
We make separate incisions in the probability space and the frequency space.
Quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear random Schr\"odinger equations
We first make incisions in the probability space.
Quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear random Schr\"odinger equations
Given two elementary regions Λ1 (N ′ ), Λ2 (N ′ ), we say that they are convex-disjoint if their convex envelops are disjoint. (This is in order that we have (4.23-4.25) at our disposal.) To control the number of bad elementary regions at scale N0, we now make additional incisions in the frequency space.
Quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear random Schr\"odinger equations
To obtain the first estimate in (5.26), we make direct incisions in the frequency space.
Quasi-periodic solutions of nonlinear random Schr\"odinger equations

In almost all cases, the LEP limits are close to the kinematic limit allowed by the collider. A collider operating above the pair production threshold will be able to accumulate a large sample of events (70,000 events per unit of R in a 200 fb−1 sample at 500 GeV) and make incisive measurements.

Supersymmetry and the linear collider are a near perfect fit — it is difficult to envision a richer linear collider program than that provided by the superpartner spectrum, and it is hard to imagine a more incisive tool for studying supersymmetry than the linear collider.
