In science:

Hebb et al. (2009) found a value of e = 0.049 ± 0.015, which was unexpected because tidal effects should have circularised such a short-period orbit (Goldreich & Soter 1966).
Homogeneous studies of transiting extrasolar planets. V. New results for 38 planets
Bernstein & Jarvis (2002), is first a circularisation of the PSF, and then the convolved profile is analysed using a reduced set of orthogonal functions (Laguerre polynomials).
Gravitational Lensing by Large Scale Structures: A Review
BBH systems visible to GW detectors are usually expected to have circularised to an orbit of eccentricity zero due to the emission of gravitational radiation .
The Current Status of Binary Black Hole Simulations in Numerical Relativity
The work of Peters in the 1960s demonstrated that a binary system in an eccentric orbit which is inspiralling due to the emission of gravitational radiation will lose eccentricity and eventually circularise.
The Current Status of Binary Black Hole Simulations in Numerical Relativity
Typical gravitational wave sources are expected to circularise before they can be observed, so studies of sources of gravitational radiation usually assume circular orbits.
The Current Status of Binary Black Hole Simulations in Numerical Relativity
Matsumura, Pudritz & Thommes 2007), third-body interactions, such as the Kozai mechanism, that can move planets onto highly eccentric orbits that are then tidally captured and circularise at short periods (e.g.
Seven transiting hot-Jupiters from WASP-South, Euler and TRAPPIST: WASP-47b, WASP-55b, WASP-61b, WASP-62b, WASP-63b, WASP-66b & WASP-67b
Black shows the ellipticity correlation function for a realistic galaxy sample, while red shows the same function measured from the circularised counterpart of the realistic galaxy sample.
Spurious Shear in Weak Lensing with LSST
Although the original sample shows a noisier ellipticity correlation function, the circularised sample roughly agrees with it in both level and shape.
Spurious Shear in Weak Lensing with LSST
The agreement between the ellipticity correlation functions measured from the original galaxies and the circularised galaxies demonstrates that shape noise is not spatially correlated; thus it should play no role in the correlation function as expected.
Spurious Shear in Weak Lensing with LSST
By exploring the size-magnitude parameter space, we find that using roughly the average magnitude, size and number density of the original sample, we can recover the ellipticity correlation of the circularised galaxy sample.
Spurious Shear in Weak Lensing with LSST
Isophotes were fitted to the images with the center of the ellipse, the semiaxes a and b, and the position angle as free parameters; variations of ellipticity (e) and position angle (pa) with the “circularised” radius √ab were allowed.
The Properties of Field Elliptical Galaxies at Intermediate Redshift. I: Empirical Scaling Laws
In particular, for numerical reasons, Mineshige & Wheeler used a very small disc in their simulation of A0620-003, using an outer radius of 3.16 ×1010 cm, well inside even the circularisation radius.
The origin of the rebrightening in soft X-ray transient outbursts
Such processes are envelope–envelope or disk–disk interactions during youth, shared accretion during youth, rapid tidal circularisation during youth, and slow tidal circularisation during the main-sequence phase.
Modest-2: A Summary
Feeding allows the mass of the secondary to grow, while eigenevolution allows the eccentricity to circularise and the period to decrease at small peri-astron distances, and merging to occur if the semi-ma jor axis of the orbit is smaller than 10 Solar radii.
Modest-2: A Summary
Recently, Marinovic et al. (2007) found that, due to the enhanced mass loss of the AGB component at orbital phases closer to the periastron, the net eccentricity growth rate in one orbit is comparable to the rate of tidal circularisation in many cases.
