That in speed lay the only hope;
One caught and over his shoulder threw
A coil of yellow rope.

The coils through which all being stirs,
Till, spelled by her soft witchery,
My heart was wholly hers.

By rearing on a full fat soil
Concrete of sin and sloth;--this land,
You will observe it coil in coil.

And coil of the prevailing words
Close round its being, and compress

Like water-snakes, and nimbly roll,
As if the dripping garments hide
Beguiling serpents in their folds.

The moan of the wind on the wire,
The groan of the torture of monsters
In the coils of the pythons of fire;

Two of its coils are vertical and the other two are horizontal.
Intense Source of Slow Positrons
In order to illuminate the target with a simple slit shaped electron beam, it is enough for setup 1 to include a tilt angle of the target with respect to the vertical in order to correct for the deviation from coil H1 .
Intense Source of Slow Positrons
The power coming from this device in the space downstream of the coils affects the design of the room shielding, and the coupling to the trap which has a first stage at very low temperature.

This configuration can become stable if a coil acting on the levitated magnet is added, with a current intensity I depending on the vertical position of the levitated mass.
Feasibility of a magnetic suspension for second generation Gravitational Wave interferometers
To get a stable position we feedback on a coil acting on the levitated magnet with a force/current characteristic of about 1 N/A.
Feasibility of a magnetic suspension for second generation Gravitational Wave interferometers
The changing of the vertical distance of the magnets with the micrometer results in a non-zero DC current because the force exerted by the coil must balance the difference between the weight and magnets forces.
Feasibility of a magnetic suspension for second generation Gravitational Wave interferometers
The equilibrium position is stable in the horizontal direction, but unstable in the vertical one; a stable configuration is obtained with the addition of a coil acting on the levitated magnet, with a current intensity I depending on the vertical position of the levitated mass.
Feasibility of a magnetic suspension for second generation Gravitational Wave interferometers
From a random coil conformation (a), local elementary structures are formed very early in the folding process, that is, after about 102 Monte Carlo steps (b); next the folding nucleus forms (c) and the remaining native contacts are formed to complete the folding process (d).

For a random coil there are 1024 possible conformations.
Simple models of protein folding and of non--conventional drug design
For instance, if the monomer-monomer interactions differ for pairs AA, BB and AB , then we may investigate the effect of the randomness on the col lapse transition, where the polymer collapses from a random coil to a ball-like structure as the temperature decreases or the solvent quality varies.

Random walks and polymers in the presence of quenched disorder
The transition of a flexible macromolecular chain from a random-coil conformation to a globular compact form, called coil-globule transition, has been a sub ject of extensive theoretical and experimental studies .
On a Type of Self-Avoiding Random Walk with Multiple Site Weightings and Restrictions
Polymers undergoing a coil-globule transition are then modelled by adding an additional short-range attraction.
On a Type of Self-Avoiding Random Walk with Multiple Site Weightings and Restrictions
It is generally assumed that any reasonable randomwalk model with excluded volume and short-range attraction should describe the coil-globule transition.
On a Type of Self-Avoiding Random Walk with Multiple Site Weightings and Restrictions
However, an investigation of our new class of models reveals that not only the strength of the coil-globule transition, but its very existence depends sensitively on details of the model.
