  • Interesting fact: The computer programming language ADA was named in honor of Augusta Ada King. The U.S. Defense Department named the language after the Countess of Lovelace and daughter of Lord Byron because she helped finance and program what is thought to be the first computer, the “analytical engine” designed by Charles Babbage.

In science:

This loss of angular momentum leads to a “global magnetic instability” and collapse of the inner disk (Lovelace et al. 1994, 1997, 2002) and a corresponding outburst of energy in the jets from the two sides of the disk.
Relativistic Jets from Accretion Disks
Such outbursts may explain the flares of active galactic nuclei blazar sources (Romanova & Lovelace 1997; Levinson 1998) and the one-time outbursts of gamma ray burst sources (Katz 1997).
Relativistic Jets from Accretion Disks
Earlier, Gisler, Lovelace, and Norman (1989) studied jet formation for a monopole type field using the relativistic PIC code ISIS.
Relativistic Jets from Accretion Disks
Figure 1: (a) Sketch of the magnetic field configuration of a Poynting jet from Lovelace and Romanova (2003).
Relativistic Jets from Accretion Disks
Lovelace and Alessandrini, in common with all these workers, based their calculation on the operator formalism mentioned above, but they pointed out that their calculation could be understood in terms of amplitudes associated with n-hole Riemann surfaces.
Factorization in Dual Models and Functional Integration in String Theory
Lovelace , making a reasonable conjecture about the amplitude with ghosts eliminated, showed that these cuts became poles if d=26.
Factorization in Dual Models and Functional Integration in String Theory
Different models have been put forward to explain astrophysical jets (Bisnovatyi-Kogan & Lovelace 2001).

Earlier, Gisler, Lovelace, and Norman (1989) studied jet formation for a monopole type field using the relativistic PIC code ISIS.
Launching of Poynting Jets from Accretion Disks
This issue has been addressed recently in Lovelace et al. [137], where a comprehensive overview of the problems of high spin initial data is also presented.
The Current Status of Binary Black Hole Simulations in Numerical Relativity
The work of Lovelace et al. [107], where the linear momentum in this region is computed, may be a starting point for this.
The Current Status of Binary Black Hole Simulations in Numerical Relativity
In order to overcome an upper limit of ≈ 0.93 for the dimensionless spin of BHs in puncture type initial data , Lovelace et al. generated initial data based on a generalization of the Kerr-Schild solution and were thus able to evolve a BH binary with spin magnitude 0.95.
Numerical simulations of black-hole binaries and gravitational wave emission
In addition, the idea that such a steady balance can be set up at all has been brought into question (Lovelace, Romanova, & Newman 1994; Lubow, Papaloizou, & Pringle 1994b; Agapitou & Papaloizou 1998).
