In poetry:

Delightful widows, dressed in black,
Complain with modest sighs they lack
That coveted expression,
That sort of Indian Summer air
Which "relicts" always ought to wear
By general concession;

In science:

From (12) it follow that in present the value ǫ1 and the relict radiation energy density are of the same order of value (see to below).
Macroscopic Einstein equations for a system of interacting particles and their cosmological applications
In SUSY+R-parity scenarios dark matter relict density ΩCDMh2 = 0.1126 ± 0.0081 represent a tough constraint for the relic density of neutralinos produced in the early universe. A DM neutralino is a WIMP DM candidate.
Implications of low and high energy measurements on SUSY models
In most scenarios the dominating neutralino annihilation process is χ + χ → A → b ¯b and the observed relict density requires the cross section to be tuned to hσi ∼ 2 · 10−26 cm3/s 5 .
Implications of low and high energy measurements on SUSY models
Together with the narrow bound from the cosmic relict density in the CMSSM one would also fix m0 at a relatively low value depending sensitively on tan β, however.
Implications of low and high energy measurements on SUSY models
The resulting dynamical system is hence an attractor relict network, viz a network of coupled attractor ruins [20, 21].
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
When coupling an attractor network to slow intrinsic variables, here the threshold b and the gain a, the attractors are destroyed but retain presence in the flow in terms of attractor ruins, with the dynamics slowing down close to the attractor relict.
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
The concept of an attractor ruin is quite general and attractor relict networks have implicitly been generated in the past using a range of functionally equivalent schemes.
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
The target mean activity µ can now differ from the average activity of an attractor relict, the mean pattern activity α, compare (14).
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
In this case the target mean activity, µ, of the intrinsic adaption rules (7) is consistent with the mean activity α of the stored patterns ξ p , viz with the mean activity level of the attractor relicts.
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
The latching activation of the attractor relicts seen in Fig. 6 reflects in corresponding transient activations of the respective membrane potentials and firing rates.
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
The tra jectory does not come close to any particular attractor relict during the laminar flow, the overall Op being close to 0.5 for all Np = 7 stored pattern.
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
There is no constraint, generically, to force the limiting cycle to incorporate all attractor relicts.
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
The data presented in Figs. 6, 8 and 9 is for small numbers of attractor relicts Np , relative to the systems size N , a systematic study for large values of Np is beyond the scope of the present study.
Generating functionals for autonomous latching dynamics in attractor relict networks
This functional stress leads to the formation of an attractor relict network.
