Trained out of many moods;

At the offerings man has driven
To Hell's altars, loom and woof!

In science:

The partition function for a strand with fixed planar substructure Ω, Z0 (L|Ω) = (cid:104)Ω(cid:105)0 , is the expectation value of a product of Φ operators and is depicted by the corresponding planar collection of arches over the line.
Field Theory of the RNA Freezing Transition
Here is an heuristic explanation for this similarity: Planar pairing configurations for a RNA strand are in one-to-one correspondence with planar arch systems over a linear strand, which are themselves in one-to-one correspondence with discrete paths (Dyck or Motzkin paths) on the half-line of integers N.
Field Theory of the RNA Freezing Transition
The argument is standard and requires counting the factors of N which arise when summing over the internal color indices a carried by the auxiliary-field line, and by using the Euler relation for the system of arch diagrams.
Field Theory of the RNA Freezing Transition
The integral over the auxiliary fields selects the arch configurations which are planar for each replica, and give zero for the others.
Field Theory of the RNA Freezing Transition
It is given by an integral over the position of the internal arch points of amplitudes of the general form given by (107).

Given the overlapping properties of FR Is and FR IIs, and of BL Lacs and quasars, it seems likely there is one over-arching “grand unification” scheme relating all radio galaxies to all blazars, although we still do not know what this scheme is.
Issues in Blazar Research
In this paper, we consider the possibility that the optical disc and the flat radio disc represent distinct dynamical regions which are inherently described by distinct phases of the same over-arching theory of which the quasi-classical theory is but one phase.

In order to obtain more general conclusions, a strategy for a more coherent and over-arching look at both the data and the models was recently proposed in [144].

Consider an arched magnetic flux tube, similar in shape to a solar prominence, twisted to a pitch angle of unity over a scale of 106R∗ 6 cm, where the longitudinal field along the flux tube is defined to be 1015B ∗ 15 G.
Coherent Emission from Magnetars
Similarly, a twisted magnetic arch that protrudes from a magnetar surface could emit over a broad band, depending on the exact altitude of the emission.
Coherent Emission from Magnetars
The latter description stresses the desirability to start with what is already available, and to find ways to put it all together, rather than to try to write a kitchen-sink type over-arching super code from scratch.
