Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Tret 3d pers. sing. pres. of Tread, for treadeth.
    • n Tret (Com) An allowance to purchasers, for waste or refuse matter, of four pounds on every 104 pounds of suttle weight, or weight after the tare deducted.
    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n tret In com., an allowance formerly made to purchasers of certain kinds of goods on account of their being obliged to transport their purchases. It consisted of an addition of 4 pounds to every 100 pounds of suttle weight, or weight after the tare is deducted. It is now so entirely discontinued by merchants that it is in many modern books confounded with a rebate or deduction from the price.

In poetry:

"That's plain," said I, "as Tare and Tret,
To any comprehensio n:
I only wish SOME Ghosts I've met
Would not so CONSTANTLY forget
The maxim that you mention!"
"Phantasmagoria Canto II ( Hys Fyve Rules )" by Lewis Carroll

In science:

For a binary with (Q, a) = (3, 0.75), gravitational waves show a sudden decrease in the amplitude at tret ≈ 27 ms, which is a clear signature of tidal disruption.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
We always exclude spurious radiation components for tret . 0 ms, using a step function of the retarded time as a window function.

At tret (∼ a few hours), the grains are sufficiently cool so that the implanted stable nuclei will be retained indefinitely.
Neutrino fluence after r-process freeze-out and abundances of Te isotopes in presolar diamonds
We now address the effects of neutrino-nucleus interactions immediately after tFO that can significantly alter the abundances of stable Te isotopes at tret , and derive a bound on the neutrino fluence after r-process freeze-out.
Neutrino fluence after r-process freeze-out and abundances of Te isotopes in presolar diamonds
It follows that the timescale for retention of the stable isotopes necessary to produce the observed 128Te/130Te ratio in the diamonds must be at least a few hours after r-process freeze-out, i.e., tret ∼> 104 s.
Neutrino fluence after r-process freeze-out and abundances of Te isotopes in presolar diamonds
These bounds on tret are reasonably consistent with the retention timescale (∼ 7.5 × 103 s) calculated by Ott (1996) from the Xe-H data.

They also show that by using the retarded coordinates (xret , tret ) for the accelerated charge, one obtains the expressions for the electromagnetic fields as given in the standard textbooks[2,10].
