However, it is important to mention here that closely related works which have appeared since we first posted.

In such cases it is more natural to avoid the post-Newtonian expansions of the metric tensor and/or observable effects.

It brings additional support to the “spiral rebuilding scenario” in which LCGs correspon d to a previous or post-merger phase before the disk re-building.

It is evident that the profiles are continuous and regular around the post with no point or line singularities.
Topology and Bistability in liquid crystal devices
Since to discard some of the modes means to lose their information, it is realized by measuring them via homodyne detectors and ignoring the outcomes, where the latter is included in classical post-processing.
Discrimination of the binary coherent signal: Gaussian-operation limit and simple non-Gaussian near-optimal receivers
Also, like lower mass stars during the AGB phase, it seems to be the case that massive stars shed most of their mass in a brief post-MS evolutionary phase, either as a RSG or an LBV.

While this star could indeed be a post-RSG because it is mildly N-rich, it is an LBV – stars well known for their unstable bipolar mass ejections.

The stellar mass lost during the following PN stage is only about 8 × 10−5 M⊙ , but this material has a very high kinetic energy because of its large speed exceeding 1000 km s−1 , leading to post-shock temperatures in excess of 107 K.
The evolution of planetary nebulae. V. The diffuse X-ray emission
We were able to compute the thermal structure of the shocked wind gas inside the nebular cavity self-consistently with the hydrodynamics once the stellar AGB remnant, its initial circumstellar envelope, and the post-AGB wind model are specified.
