In literature:

His knuckle and collar-bones shone blae through the tight skin.
"John Splendid" by Neil Munro

In poetry:

The doctors declar'd it was past their descriving,
The ministers said 'twas a judgment for sin,
But they looket sae blae, and their hearts were sae wae,
I was sure they were deeing for Barrochan Jean.
"Barrochan Jean" by Robert Tannahill
The blae-berry banks now are lonesome and dreary, O,
Muddy are the streams that gush'd down sae clearly, O,
Silent are the rocks that echoed sae gladly, O,
The wild melting strains o' my dear Highland laddie, O.
"The Dear Highland Laddie, O" by Robert Tannahill

In science:

This physical picture was first proposed by Ostriker, Rees, & Silk (1970), and later extended by Treves & Colpi (1991) and Blaes & Madau (1993), for NSs in the Galactic disk, where the NS is assumed to accrete from the interstellar medium or from the gas in a giant molecular cloud.
Bondi-Hoyle-Lyttleton Accretion Model for Low-luminosity X-ray Sources in Globular Clusters
Analogous scenarios have been proposed for merging supermassive black holes (Blaes et al. 2002) and stellar-mass compact ob jects (Thompson 2010).
The Eccentric Kozai Mechanism for a Test Particle
Blaes et al. (2002) examine some examples for triples of supermassive black holes.
The Eccentric Kozai Mechanism for a Test Particle
The important specific prediction of the dynamic corona model is that the scattered soft radiation acquires strong polarization parallel to the disk normal (Beloborodov 1998b), in agreement with optical polarimetric observations of Seyferts (Koratkar & Blaes 1999).
Accretion Disk Models of Luminous Black Holes
Considerable theoretical and computational effort is being put into improving our understanding of accretion disks and their winds (Blaes; Proga; Everett), and we look forward to great advances in this area in the coming years.
Conference Summary: AGN Physics with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Damping of the vibration of a neutron star had been suggested as a mechanism for the March 5 flare (Ramaty et al. 1980), but the coupling of the crust to the magnetosphere is much too weak to explain the observed luminosity if B ∼ 1012 G (Blaes et al. 1989).
Soft Gamma Repeaters and Anomalous X-ray Pulsars: Magnetar Candidates
The amplitude of the spin down is consistent with an enhanced magnetic torque due to a relativistic outflow of particles (Thompson & Blaes 1998; Frail et al. 1999; Thompson et al. 2000) if the dipole field of the star is ∼1015 G.
Soft Gamma Repeaters and Anomalous X-ray Pulsars: Magnetar Candidates
Then, the instability in the weakly ionized case has been considered (Blaes & Balbus 1994; Wardle 1999; Balbus & Terquem 2001), leading to the well known Dead Zone problem (Gammie 1996).
Impact of dimensionless numbers on the efficiency of MRI-induced turbulent transport
Blaes who introduced a very detailed attempt to model disks on all scales.
Conference Summary: The Central Engine of Active Galactic Nuclei
The analysis models the system as a hierarchical triple using the equations of motion of Blaes, Lee, and Socrates .
Analytic approximations, perturbation methods, and their applications
Later, Blaes and collaborators identified a different pair of modes, the vertical epicyclic and axisymmetric breathing mode, that have a near 3:2 ratio for a broader range of parameters.

Er 6= T 4 everywhere and the radiation flux is zero. in our dimensionless units, then they will evolve towards the equilibrium state ˜Er = ˜T 4 on the thermalization time scale ∼ P /(PEr σaC) (e.g., Blaes & Socrates 2003).
