In the wrinkles of the spring,
Then oer the rushes flies again,
And pearls roll off his back like rain.

That blooms beside, 'tis pale and wet

In science:
In this work we will show that in fact the Pearl interaction potential is capable of describing satisfactorily the superconducting properties of a very thin superconductor.
Elastic Properties of the Vortex Lattice for a Superconducting Film of Finite Thickness
This is the Pearl result for vortices emerging from a semi-inﬁnite isotropic superconductor.1 Another interesting particular case of Eq. (1) is the limit of a very thin ﬁlm, d → 0, and k small.
Elastic Properties of the Vortex Lattice for a Superconducting Film of Finite Thickness
This is precisely the energy of an ensemble of interacting vortices in a very thin ﬁlm ﬁrst obtained by Pearl.2 However, his derivation is supposed to be valid for any k .
Elastic Properties of the Vortex Lattice for a Superconducting Film of Finite Thickness
By using these parameters we evaluated numerically cp 66 and c66, where the superscript p means that the Pearl potential was used to calculate the shear modulus, whereas with no superscript we used the full expression of Eq. (8).
Elastic Properties of the Vortex Lattice for a Superconducting Film of Finite Thickness
This was ﬁrst experimentally observed by Fiory.9 The conclusion we draw from this scenario is that the Pearl potential is indeed valid in the limit of very thin ﬁlm.

Next, we will deﬁne a pearl-necklace S pin(T ) subordinate to the 2-knot S pin(A), with all the requirements needed for the group, generated by reﬂections on each pearl, to be Kleinian.
A wild knot $\mathbb{S}^{2}\hookrightarrow\mathbb{S}^{4}$ as limit set of a Kleinian Group: Indra's pearls in four dimensions
We deﬁne the ﬁl ling of S pin(T ) as |S pin(T )| = ∪n i=1Bi, where Bi is the round closed 4-ball whose boundary ∂Bi is the pearl Σi .
A wild knot $\mathbb{S}^{2}\hookrightarrow\mathbb{S}^{4}$ as limit set of a Kleinian Group: Indra's pearls in four dimensions
Geometrically, the above deﬁnition means that when we rotate A and T with respect to R2, we obtain an inﬁnite number of pearls covering S pin(A).
A wild knot $\mathbb{S}^{2}\hookrightarrow\mathbb{S}^{4}$ as limit set of a Kleinian Group: Indra's pearls in four dimensions
Each meridian Ai (1 ≤ i ≤ 6), is a copy of A and has a semi pearl-necklace Ti (1 ≤ i ≤ 6) subordinate to it which is an isometric copy of T .
