Small traveler from an unseen shore,
By mortal eye ne'er seen before,

You are as fair a little dame
As ever from a glad world came
To one of sorrow.

On thy heated brow,
Listen, while all else is still,
To the brooklet from the hill.

Or pray in spirit, as they ride, or walk,
As well as they may make the welkin ring
With their loose ballads, or their noisy talk.

And home we travel," to ourselves we said.

That thou hast ought to do with me.

It is thy highest art
To captivate strong holds to thee.

In science:

As noted in that section, each of the ring models listed in Table 1 spends considerably more time traveling through the thin shell 0.90 R∗ ≤ r ≤ 0.96 R∗ than in ascending from the starting radius to r = 0.90 R∗ (see Figure 9).

We have demonstrated that the scenario of light traveling along closed loops can be remedied.
Coherent Random Lasing and "Almost Localized" Photon Modes
The origin of the instability of the speckle pattern I (r, t) in a nonlinear random medium and its sensitivity to τNL can be qualitatively understood by considering I as a result of interference of many partial waves traveling along various diffusion paths.
Instability of speckle patterns in random media with noninstantaneous Kerr nonlinearity
Excited random walk in Z2 is more delicate, and it is not clear even at an intuitive level whether or not the speed is positive, though we believe that by time n it has traveled distance at least Θ(n/ log n).
Excited Random Walk
The factor lB/LS (re) in equation (3) measures the reduction in kT associated with tangled field lines, which increase the dist ance electrons must travel in going from hotter regions to colder regions.

The three dimensional distance There are nsteps = tDk/L2 travelled by an electron along the magnetic field during one “ fundamental random-walk step ” is ∼ √LS lB, and the three-dimensional distance travelled during nsteps steps is ∼ pnstepsLS lB .
Thermal conduction and particle transport in strong MHD turbulence, with application to galaxy-cluster plasmas
Since LS > lB and nsteps ≫ 1, the distance travelled by a single electron during a time t is much greater than the distance travelled by a fluid element, and the fluid motion can be ignored.
Thermal conduction and particle transport in strong MHD turbulence, with application to galaxy-cluster plasmas
The distance an electron travels t, is less than the distance lB that a fluid element travalong the field due to parallel diffusion, pDk els.

Anchored expansion, percolation and speed
For the following calculations, we make use of the following assumptions. A photon travels along the x-axis of our coordinate system.
The speed of gravity has not been measured from time delays
We note that for this equation to give a traveling wave solution moving at speed cg, we must interpret τ as the physical time, not t.
The speed of gravity has not been measured from time delays
The first, ∝ R U dxp, which appears for static gravitational sources as well, is the simple geometric time delay which results from photon’s traveling through any gravitational potential.

That is, the properties of the shell are allowed to change over the time required for material to travel along the surface.
Trapped Protostellar Winds and their Breakout
For those shells that do achieve breakout and have traveled far relative to the initial stellar radius, all quantities follow a power-law determined by the slope in the infall density law.
