Revere great Heaven,
That thus its favor may
To Chow be given?

And goes around like every one;

And tribal justice has been done.

To grade the Strong down to the weak.

Was axe-man Chow, the son of Choo.

'Ow we did scoot!

Though toilsome and winding from Chow was the way.

Forbade that his business be done with slack hand;
And my heart was with sadness oppressed.

In science:

The pattern of open-stringinduced Higgsing/un-Higgsing behavior of n D0-branes on Pr can be reproduced in the current content via deformations of morphisms [ϕR ] in ΦChow (S n (Pr )) ⊂ Map ((Space Mn (C); Cn ), Pr ).

The moduli space Map ((Space Mn (C); Cn ), Y ) of such morphisms contains both Y [n] ≃ Im ΦHilb and S nY ≃ Im ΦChow , and the restriction of πHilb : Map ((Space Mn (C); Cn ), Y ) → S nY to Im ΦHilb realizes the resolution Y [n] → S nY .

In the previous subsections, we see an interesting feature of the moduli space of D0-branes on a (commutative) quasi-pro jective variety: namely, it incorporates both the Hilbert scheme and the Chow variety.
