Usage

In poetry:

The fragrant, sultry weather cooled by the river breeze,
If passion faltered ever, and left the senses free,
We heard the tireless river decending to the sea.
"Kotri," by Laurence Hope

An alternative, and perhaps more accurate, method for estimating the amount of stripping in subhaloes would be to combine SAMs with analytical prescriptions based on higher resolution dark matter simulations, like presented in Taylor & Babul (2001).
Cluster Galaxies Die Hard
Pre-heating of the gas destined to fall into a cluster potential well during proto-galactic stages has also been proposed as a means to empty gas on galactic scales in these massive halos (Babul et al. 2002).
