In science:

This simple picture demands that the hot burning material decouples from the cooler underlying ashes and conserves its angular momentum, completing a few phase wraps with the underlying star during the burst.
Rotational Evolution During Type I X-Ray Bursts
Because the wrapped extended butterfly is symmetric under the operation that flips the interpretation of the bits at a given time slice, a random subgraph is isomorphic to the subgraph obtained by flipping the bits at a time slice and suitably permuting the bits at the next d time slices.
Balanced Boolean functions that can be evaluated so that every input bit is unlikely to be read
The PCB is enclosed in a copper can which is wrapped in niobium foil under which there is a layer of Metglas R(cid:13) 2705M, a highpermeability amorphous metal foil (Hitachi Metals Inc.).
Prototype finline-coupled TES bolometers for CLOVER
Historically they were introduced to characterize D-branes wrapping generalized cycles of definite dimension which are energy minimizing under continuous deformations.
D-brane networks in flux vacua, generalized cycles and calibrations
We now want to consider a BPS probe D5-brane wrapped on a three cycle Γ on the T 6/Z2, that for simplicity we assume descends from a cycle (and its image under the orientifold involution) on T 6 .
D-brane networks in flux vacua, generalized cycles and calibrations
GUI applications developed are based on a Scala library that provides access to Java‘s Swing framework of GUI classes [158]. Scala-swing is a "wrapping" library approach. The Scala library resembles the underlying Swing classes, but hides much of their complexity.
Comparative Studies of 10 Programming Languages within 10 Diverse Criteria - a Team 10 COMP6411-S10 Term Report
The results are obtained by developing a generating family version of wrapped Floer cohomology and establishing long exact sequences that arise from viewing the the spaces underlying these cohomology groups as mapping cones.
Obstructions to Lagrangian Cobordisms between Legendrians via Generating Families
The proofs of the aforementioned theorems have similar outlines: the spaces underlying the relative and total wrapped generating family cohomology can be viewed as mapping cones and thus give rise to long exact sequences.
Obstructions to Lagrangian Cobordisms between Legendrians via Generating Families
In this section, we study one variant of the underlying structure: grid without wrap-around; and two variants of edge linking: multiple edges for each vertex and linking edges independently.
On the Hyperbolicity of Small-World and Tree-Like Random Graphs
It has been argued that the corresponding nonrenormalizable lagrangian can have stable solutions, which are identified with the technibaryons of an underlying technicolor model, and whose distinguishing characteristic is the non-trivial wrapping of the target SU(2) manifold .
Higgs-Sector Solitons
Several cases of wrapping fall into a simple class where the underlying FORTRAN runs either off of a input file or a few command line parameters.
A New face on old code
The magnetised D7-brane stack wraps the large four-cycle; • The K¨ahler modulus Tb (described in section 2.1) is charged under the U (1); • One of the open string modes, stretching between the D7-brane with magnetic flux and its orientifold image, is tachyonic at the origin of field space.
