In science:

In such cases we know the conditions which lead to the end of inflation and we always have the option to work within a small box.† On the other hand, where isocurvature fields are present, these fields will generally acquire large fluctuations within the inflating region.
One-loop corrections to the curvature perturbation from inflation
Nevertheless, numerical boundary conditions exist that are empirically stable, and the strategy of moving them as far out as possible, typically by using nested boxes of Cartesian coordinate grids, seems to work.

Our method actually works in a black-box setting.

New results on Noncommutative and Commutative Polynomial Identity Testing
Notice that NLO effects are larger for asymmetric boxes, since they are proportional to (T /L)3 ; however, if T ≫ L one enters in a different kinematic range, called δ-regime, which will not be discussed in this work.
Testing chiral effective theory with quenched lattice QCD
It demands a “black-box” derandomization in the sense that A2 efficiently computes a collection of weight functions that w ill work for any set system in 2U specified by a boolean circuit of size m.
Derandomizing the Isolation Lemma and Lower Bounds for Circuit Size
One cannot, for example, look at the inner workings of the circuit or device implementing the black-box to extract additional information.
Quantum Algorithms
This was a historical moment, since the field of quantum algorithms progressed from work on black-box algorithms and complexity, to an algorithm without blackboxes and of broad practical importance.
Quantum Algorithms
It is important to note the fundamental role of the foundational complexity-theoretic work and black-box algorithms to the development of the practical algorithms.
Quantum Algorithms
Of course, any algorithm that works in the black-box setting also works when the group is represented explicitly, say as a matrix group or as some known group.
