Two obvious communities in nonperturbative QCD are the effective lagrangian / chiral symmetry specialists (to whom the pion is the most interesting meson) and the hadron spectroscopists (to whom it is not).
MESON2000 Conference Summary
The coexistence of such diverse states of material within small volumes (1033 –1036 cm3 ) leaves X-ray spectroscopists with a challenging set of problems, since all such matter produces various X-ray spectral signatures when exposed to hard X rays.

It is found that Ci can usually be neglected for the photoionized plasmas of interest to X-ray spectroscopists.
X-ray Spectroscopy of Accretion Disks and Stellar Winds in X-Ray Binaries
Perhaps the most startling aspect of damped Lyα research for stellar spectroscopists is that the path from ionic column density measurements to elemental abundances is trivial.
Chemical Abundances in the Damped Lya Systems
Some spectroscopists assume that the motivation for thus setting e = 0 is a preference for simplicity; others believe that this decision is based only on statistical arguments.
