In poetry:

Will hear of me in time:
Slavs, Huns, the Scythians, and Finns,
And others locked today in battle,
Will point at me and they'll pronounce:
"The Swan" by Gavrila Romanovich Derzhavin
And, as in olden times, the poets
Will lead men's souls up to heights,
Like Angel leads the dazzling comets
To a point, that is not in sight.
"Oh, How Silent Is the Nature" by Nikolai Stepanovich Gumilev
By thee I'll sit, and inly muse
What are the charms in life we lose
When time demands our breath:
Alas! the load of ling'ring age
Has little that can hope engage,
Or point the shaft of death.
"Address To The Evening Primrose" by Joanna Baillie

That long has braved time’s iron power,
With its bright glitt’ring cross and ivy wreathed porch—
Sure refuge in sorrow’s dark hour!
"The Emigrant’s Address To America" by Rosanna Eleanor Leprohon
Then the Ghoorkas did the Afghans fiercely attack,
And at every point and turning they were driven back;
And a fierce hand to hand struggle raged for a time,
While in the morning sunshine the British bayonets did shine.
"General Roberts in Afghanistan" by William Topaz McGonagall
Touchd with a sacred rage & heavnly flame,
I strive to sing thine universall aim,
To quit ye subject, & in lays sublime
The morall fitt for any point of time:
Then go my verses with applying strain
Go form a triumph not ascribd to men.
"Deborah" by Thomas Parnell

At this point in time, our understanding of the geometry of finitely-generated solvable groups is quite limited.
Problems on the geometry of finitely generated solvable groups
The continuous variables time and position enter in the description of the motion as if they were also discrete parameters only because the interaction events are our reference points for time counting; this is not a lattice calculation.
Discrete-to-continuum transitions and mathematical generalizations in the classical harmonic oscillator
Then it follows from the recurrence theorem that for almost every point ω in B there must be an arbitrarily large number of moments in time when the tra jectory of the point ω is in the set B, i.e. for almost every ω ∈ B, s(θnω) belongs to pZp infinitely often.
On Markovian behaviour of $p$-adic random dynamical systems
We also provided numerical evidence that for large systems the entanglement distribution of the uniform measure is achieved at a specific point in time, the variation cut-off.
Efficient Generation of Generic Entanglement
For any two finite sets E and V, for which it is possible to visit every point in V without hitting E, there is a.s. an exceptional time t such that each point in V is visited infinitely often, while the set E is not visited at all.

On the other hand, by definition of the time changed process X ξ, 1 ε x1 is the last point in C ξ (ω ) visited by X before time t0 .
Quenched invariance principles for random walks with random conductances
The times are those of the final points in the top panel, t = 249 and t = 222 : the data of that panel indicate that these times are long enough to be representative of the asymptotic large-time scaling.
Duality between random trap and barrier models
At this point in time, gp = (i, lanl:locatedAt, −, w, lanl:wrote, +, x, lanl:wrote, −, y, lanl:locatedAt, +, z ) and gp is a Ψcoaut -correct and w and y are indexed by π .
Grammar-Based Random Walkers in Semantic Networks
As there are an infinite number of observables that share the same final states, it is not possible to univocally say what quantity is left defined by time evolution at each point in time. x, x3 and 2x3 are all equivalent, because measuring one means automatically knowing all the others.
The Schroedinger equation as the time evolution of a deterministic and reversible process
Proof: Since the initial point Z (0) = 0 is an “entrance and non-exit” singular point for the positive semi-axis (see the classification of singular points in [IM74] ), the existence and uniqueness of a nonnegative solution for all positive times is guaranteed.

The uncertainty in tmax is estimated to be roughly 0.15 times the separation in time between the two surrounding points, determined by removing points from well-sampled light curves and noting the effect.

By doing so, one is bound to hit a problem when t becomes large enough, in which case t will not change its value after the addition of a small value ∆t, and the simulation will be stuck at a single point in time.

The first two lemmas show that the probability that the continuous-time random walk X started from the boundary of GN × I hits a point in the set VI ⊂ GN × I (cf.
