To bear each duty onward to its end,--
And of her power to make a home so fair,
That those who shared its sanctities deplore
The pattern lost forever.

X-ray Spectroscopy of Accretion Disks and Stellar Winds in X-Ray Binaries
Even with the computational power available on supercomputers today, it is not possible to make three-dimensional PIC simulations that cover a full collisionless shock, while also resolving the microphysics.
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
However, the observed lensing signal corresponds to a weighted average of the power spectrum across a range of scales, and so the potential to resolve the baryon oscillations has been somewhat neglected.
Observing Baryon Oscillations with Cosmic Shear
Since the power spectrum is probed over such a broad range, it was not anticipated that cosmic shear surveys could resolve any oscillatory features.

However, the spatial distribution of Si could not be measured due to the poor spatial-resolving power of ASCA.

The inclusive DIS hadron cross section, d 2s/d x dQ2, is a function of the virtuality Q2 of the exchanged gauge boson (i.e. its “resolving power ”), and the Bjorken-x fraction of the total nucleon momentum carried by the struck parton.

The matter effect is stronger in this region and hence the higher resolving power for the mass hierarchy.
