In science:

Here ~ra = ~xa − ~x and ~rab = ~xa − ~xb . ~x is the spatial variable in the PPN coordinate frame, and ~xa is location of ob ject a.
Birkhoff's theorem fails to save MOND from non-local physics
This can be perhaps understood by considering the vacuum sector of P, where the C-tensor becomes C ab |Rab=0 = vcd where Cabcd and ∗C are the Weyl tensor and its dual respectively [Eqs. (27) and (28)].
Chern-Simons Modified General Relativity
Grumiller and Yunes have argued that it seems unlikely that other non-trivial and physically interesting solutions besides the static ones could arise, because Rab = 0 and Cab = 0 is a strongly over-constrained differential system.
Chern-Simons Modified General Relativity
Equation (102) is non-flat, possessing a nonvanishing Riemann tensor and a third Killing vector t∂t − φ∂φ + ct∂φ , but it satisfies Rab = 0 and Cab = 0 independently (ie. it belongs to P).
Chern-Simons Modified General Relativity
Rab − J a where we have neglected other terms that are either higher-order in θ or in the gravitational coupling constant.
Chern-Simons Modified General Relativity
A has rank one. (b) σ(B rAB s + B sAB r ) has at most two distinct nonzero eigenvalues for any B in B(X ). (c) There does not exist an operator B with rank at most three such that B rAB s + B sAB r has rank three and three distinct nonzero eigenvalues.
"Maps preserving the spectrum of generalized Jordan product of operators", and its "Addendum"
B rAB s + B sAB r has rank 3 with three distinct nonzero eigenvalues.
"Maps preserving the spectrum of generalized Jordan product of operators", and its "Addendum"
We may suppose that A′ 6= 0 since it is obvious that σ(B rAB s + B sAB r ) = {0} for all rank one idempotents B implies that A = 0.
"Maps preserving the spectrum of generalized Jordan product of operators", and its "Addendum"
Thus, we can choose d so that B rAB s + B sAB r has three nonzero distinct nonzero eigenvalues: 2adr+s , bµ, bν .

In particular, this can be done by ”measuring” independently the two-time symmetric correlation C AB and at the linear response RAB (defined in more detail further below) of two generic quantities A and B .
Dynamic correlations, fluctuation-dissipation relations, and effective temperatures after a quantum quench of the transverse field Ising chain
Remarkably, knowing RAB and C AB + for a pair of observables A and B allows the determination of the inverse temperature β of the system in equilibrium via Eqs. (16) and (18), whatever the observables A and B are.
Dynamic correlations, fluctuation-dissipation relations, and effective temperatures after a quantum quench of the transverse field Ising chain
C AB + (t) and RAB (t) within the stationary regime.
Dynamic correlations, fluctuation-dissipation relations, and effective temperatures after a quantum quench of the transverse field Ising chain
Indeed, as the functional dependence of RAB (ω ) and C AB + (ω ) on ω are, in principle, unrelated out of equilibrium it is necessary to allow for such a frequency dependence of βAB eff in Eq. (19).
Dynamic correlations, fluctuation-dissipation relations, and effective temperatures after a quantum quench of the transverse field Ising chain
Indeed, the time dependence of the response function RAB — which, in equilibrium, is connected to ˜C AB + (ω ) via Eq. (16) — can be obtained from the Fourier transform of Eq. (19).
Dynamic correlations, fluctuation-dissipation relations, and effective temperatures after a quantum quench of the transverse field Ising chain
RAB taken in the stationary regime long after the quench.
