Usage

In poetry:

Nor cant nor poor solicitudes
Made weak his life's great argument;
Small leisure his for frames and moods
Who followed Duty where she went.
"Sumner" by John Greenleaf Whittier
I try to learn from him too
But can’t stop my tears
From flowing over the gold frames
When I run off with The Four Seasons under my armpits.
"Paintings" by Marin Sorescu

In news:

The name seems to put pressure on the new guy, but could just as well refer to Carol Reed's classic film, whose canted Dutch angles would be an appropriate frame for this trio 's antics.

In science:

Advection spreads the scalar out in space, while concentrating it locally through stretching and folding, shearing it into thin ribbons until the spatial gradients are large enough that molecular diffusion becomes significant in the third frame.
Interstellar Turbulence II: Implications and Effects
It is shown here that the effect of adding D−state components to the rest frame wave functions of the proton and the ∆(1232) resonance is significant for the E 2/M 1 ratio REM , but very small for the C 2/M 1 ratio RSM in the case of instant and point form kinematics.
D-state configurations in the electromagnetic form factors of the nucleon and the Delta(1232) resonance
In these theories Lorentz invariance is broken; there is a preferred set of frames where one can experimentally determine that Lorentz violation is small. A significant alternative that has attracted attention is simply modifying the way the Lorentz group acts on physical fields.
Modern tests of Lorentz invariance
These problems are significant insofar as imperfect reference frames may pose a challenge to achieving the fine control that is required for the successful implementation of quantum information processing protocols.
Dialogue Concerning Two Views on Quantum Coherence: Factist and Fictionist
In particular the simulated transverse momentum spectra are too soft. A significant increase of Λ-baryon production was observed in the region 0 < η < 1.3 in the laboratory frame, which is not reproduced by any of the models.
Small x Phenomenology - summary of the 3rd Lund Small x Workshop in 2004
Finite-time processes and inter-frame experiments of the sort considered by us here are generally avoided, because it is assumed there is no significant novel physics involved.
Proposed split-causality test of the relativity principle
An ideal instrument such as a bluesensitive frame transfer CCD camera would not only allow short exposure times, but also include insignificant dead times between consecutive exposures, to enable data acquisition with high time resolution.
Discovery of two new accreting pulsating white dwarf stars
There is a significant sensitivity hit for Lucky Imaging, as the “bad” frames are thrown away.
The Science Case for PILOT I: Summary and Overview
Significant transverse momentum PT in the Breit frame is produced at leading order (LO) in the strong coupling αs by the QCD-Compton and boson-gluon fusion processes.
Jet physics and strong coupling at HERA
However, it is important to notice that while the velocity of c relative to a might be large, it can’t be too close to 1 since, in this case, due to relativistic effects, the small shifts due to Poison scattering in one frame might look like very ”long” in another one.
Causal set as a discretized phase spacetime
But, in light of a light-cone singularities, a causal set can’t possibly be manifold-like in these fast-moving frames.
Causal set as a discretized phase spacetime
Overall, we conclude that no significant evidence for an anisotropy of c fixed relative to a sidereal frame can be claimed from this data.
Rotating optical cavity experiment testing Lorentz invariance at the 10^{-17} level
We here set the stage for improving very significantly this state of affa irs by reporting success in handling the severe technical challenges [22–25] that must be met for a truly relativistic (no preferred frame) description of momentum dependence of the speed of photons in an expanding spacetime.
Testing quantum-spacetime relativity with gamma-ray telescopes
The “1 µm barrier” practically limits supernova ground-based surveys to z = 1 or significantly below, if one imposes that supernovae at all redshifts are measured in the same rest frame wavelength range.
Dark energy constraints from a space-based supernova survey
We would like to point out finally that the question of light scattering intensity resonances in the polariton frame has been much debated and the conclusion remained unclear whether including the polariton picture significantly changes the resonance curves in bulk material, as compared to the exciton one.
