The frame and a picture to view.

In partonic picture, it may be related to the saturation scale Qs of the transverse parton momentum distribution in a boosted frame.
Superpenetration of a high energy Q barQ bound state through random color fields
By definition, AT is an infinite concatenation of single transitions of the type TN1 , TR1 , and TR3 , i.e., one type of single curvature transition and two types of single frame transitions; to get an intuitive picture of attractor sequences we simply refer to Figure 3(a)–3(c).
The cosmological billiard attractor
In the Einstein frame, we deal with the effective picture where the measure Φ does not present at all and the metric tensor ˜gµν (see Eqs.(20) or (47)) has the same regularity properties as in GR.
Transition to Zero Cosmological Constant and Phantom Dark Energy as Solutions Involving Change of Orientation of Space-Time Manifold
We denote the coordinates of this reference frame by xµ = (t, x, y , z ) and suppose that the observer is located at the fixed spatial point q i = (x0 , y0 , z0 ), as shown in the left picture of fig. 2.
