For they proposed to take her off
To distant border lands.

And when he rubbed his eyes

His dander ’gin to rise.

Their missuses likewise.

O'er all the lavish region roll,
And realm on realm, from pole to pole,
In one beneath thy stars be bound:
The far-off centuries as they flow,
No whiter name than this shall know!
"Mount Vernon" by Francis Turner Palgrave

In icy chains the river;
When not a flower adorn'd the ground,
And nature seem'd sleeping for ever;
When the earth had thrown off her robe of green
Hast thou not gazed on such a scene?
"Stanzas - 2" by Mary Anne Browne
Oh, there's no time at sea like the time you're bound home,
When the decks are waist deep in the greeny-white foam;
When she leaps and she lifts to the best of the squall
In December off Stiff — there's the best time of all.
"Home Round The Horn" by Bill Adams
So in their rapid fury mountain torrents
That hurl them off their moss-grown altars steep,
Seeking the flood with tossing, foaming riot--
Here in the vale are bound in the old currents,
To stream in future calm and clear and deep!

In science:

For all three traps, the reachability constraints are generated to depth 2 by the bounded RPT off-line algorithm.
Constraint-Based Heuristic On-line Test Generation from Non-deterministic I/O EFSMs
In addition, it is clearly visible that the combination of χ RPT on-line algorithm together with bounded RPT off-line algorithm also time-wise outperformed the RPT (off-line + on-line).
Constraint-Based Heuristic On-line Test Generation from Non-deterministic I/O EFSMs
The reachability constraints are generated to depth 1 by the bounded RPT off-line algorithm and the initial state is taken from earlier.
Constraint-Based Heuristic On-line Test Generation from Non-deterministic I/O EFSMs
As this model is considerably larger both locationand state-wise than the previous models M1 and M2 , we also use it to compare how different bounds of the RPT off-line algorithm affect χ RPT.
Constraint-Based Heuristic On-line Test Generation from Non-deterministic I/O EFSMs
Remark 3: Although the optimization for the lower bound in (12) can be quite difficult to solve, it can be handled off-line, i.e., it only depends on the model {pu i , i ∈ M, u ∈ U }.
