Brother Bragge and brother Hiley,
Cheer him! when he speaks so vilely,
Cheer him! when his audience flag,
Brother Hiley, brother Bragge.

What! "Hear him" burst from brother Hiley,
When the faltering periods lag,
Hark to the cheers of brother Bragge.

Or his yawning audience flag,
When his speeches hobble vilely,
Or the House receives him drily,
Cheer, O! cheer him brother Bragge!
Cheer, O! cheer him brother Hiley!

In science:

There has been considerable study of the random substrate (λ = 2) problem, with the early controversy now being resolved in favor of a “superrough” “Bragg-glass” phase in (2 + 1)-dimensions in which w ∼ ln(L).
A periodic elastic medium in which periodicity is relevant
It is clear that the random substrate (Bragg glass) universality class [12,13] is dominant at large enough length scales.

First, neutron scattering on these highquality crystals suffers greatly from the effects of extinction; the beam, upon transmission through the crystal, is depleted of neutrons satisfying the Bragg condition, resulting in the saturation of the measured value of IB .
Order Parameter Criticality of the d=3 Random-Field Ising Antiferromagnet Fe(0.85)Zn(0.15)F2
Whether domain structure forms or not, the Bragg scattering cross section will be decreased by thermal disorder as the transition is approached.

The scans typically consisted of 41 points, about 15 of which covered the Bragg peak.

Energy transmission by gap soliton generation is a phenomenon that has been experimentally discovered in Bragg media with Kerr nonlinearity .
Nonlinear supratransmission as a fundamental instability
In that case the underlying simplified model is the coupled mode system and it has been recently demonstrated that the very mechanism of the switch from a Bragg mirror to a medium with high transmissivity is the nonlinear supratransmission .
