In poetry:

Heartsease in her garden plot,
Ladders-to-Heaven scale the skies;
While the dear forget-me-not
Brightens her eyes.

Up toward that which few discover,
Thought's wide realm, with vision gladder
He explored, each summit scaled.

Above the sun and moon heav'n lies,
And strange and arduous is the road —

His word, thy lamp, to shew thee God.

Which far above the lunar regions lie,
Unless he does the Patriarch's ladder take,
Jesus I mean, the bold attempt to make.

Out of thy grief to rear a ladder tall
To reach the land that lies beyond the sun,
To scale the jasper wall,
And rise to glory on grief's stepping stone.

Scaling little ladders with glue pots and pails of Lysol
I crawl like an ant in mourning
Over the weedy acres of your brow
To mend the immense skull-plates and clear
The bald, white tumuli of your eyes.

Our goal is to prove that in the given kinetic scaling limit, the sum of amplitudes associated to decorated ladder graphs converges to a solution of the linear Boltzmann equation (3.4).

Following step 2 described at the beginning of Section 6, we now determine the kinetic scaling limit of the sum of all Feynman amplitudes associated to basic ladder graphs.

In the familiar case of non-relativistic QED atoms, the divergence arises from ladder diagrams with loop momenta which scale with α.
The hbar Expansion in Quantum Field Theory
The electron self-energy corrections, as well as the terms of the ladder series, are given by logarithmically divergent integrals that need to be cut off at a given scale Λ.
Screening effects on the excitonic instability in graphene
The crucial point is that these divergences can be reabsorbed by passing to physical quantities such that vF = Zv (vF )ren and ψψ = Zψ2 (ψψ)ren (the scale of the single Dirac field is not renormalized in the ladder approximation).
Screening effects on the excitonic instability in graphene
As a result the critical singularities of ladders are identical to those of a chain, however, from the w-dependence of the amplitudes one can deduce cross-over functions and estimate the singularities of the 2D system through finite size scaling.
