From a branch above a grave.

From Symmetry Breaking to Topology Change I
The rarity of CBSs among the hot horizontal branch stars of NGC 6752 (Moni Bidin et al. 2006) and the out-of-period 47 Tuc data from Albrow (2001) make us feel young (and binary deficient) again.

Two-dimensional defect modes in optically induced photonic lattices
For the 2D problem (5.1), using the relation (5.3), we can readily see that when DMs bifurcate out from edges of the continuous spectrum (see the ‘a, b, d’ branches for instance), the distance between DM eigenvalues and the continuum edges also depends on ǫ quadratically.
