In poetry:
The primrose in clusters breath'd fragrance around,
And witness'd the vows that were given;--
The lark, that sat listening, soar'd swift from the ground
And warbled the contract in -- heaven!
"May-Day ; Or, The Discovery. A Pastoral. In The Manner of Cunningham" by Hector MacNeill
Dargo the mighty came on, like a
cloud of thunder. His brows were contracted
and dark. His eyes like two
caves in a rock. Bright rose their
swords on each side; dire was the clang
of their steel.
"Fragment V" by James Macpherson
She sees another, with dismay,
Contracting debts he'll never pay.
Perhaps his payment is a sneer,
Because a lawyer gets him clear.
The crowd look on with unconcern;
Justice and creditor may mourn.
"Justice" by William Hutton

"And fill it with thy fire."

Can guilt and remorse teach that forehead to glow?
These sweet lips can never be taught to complain,
No oath can pollute them, no falsehood can stain.

And a nest is under way for little Mr. Wren?

In science:
We say that ϕ is completely positive contractive if each ϕt is a linear completely positive contraction.
A Classification Theorem for Nuclear Purely Infinite Simple C*-Algebras
Since I is contractible, Ker πα is contractible.
Homological algebra of homotopy algebras
This problem has deﬁnite interest in physics, where contractions are related to some kind of “approximation” and understanding how invariants behave under contraction and under the “inverse” expansion or deformation process are illuminating aspects of the theory.
Casimir invariants for the complete family of quasi-simple orthogonal algebras
This means that the behaviour of these Casimirs upon any contraction ωa → 0 is built-in in the formalism, and they do not require any rescaling which should be made when the contraction is performed in the In¨on¨u–Wigner sense.
Casimir invariants for the complete family of quasi-simple orthogonal algebras
Inserting these ω factors turns out to be equivalent to the usual rescaling made in the contraction of Casimir invariants by means of an In¨on¨u–Wigner contraction.
Casimir invariants for the complete family of quasi-simple orthogonal algebras
When contraction is dealt with through an In¨on¨u–Wigner type contraction, a suitable rescaling of the non-contracted Casimir by some power of the contraction parameter is required to give a non-trivial well deﬁned Casimir for the contracted algebra after the contraction limit.
Casimir invariants for the complete family of quasi-simple orthogonal algebras
Generally, the contraction of the indices of F and X can be carried out in many inequivalent ways; the coeﬃcient Vnkl therefore is shorthand for many independent coeﬃcients at each order, corresponding to all possible contractions.
Lectures on D-branes, Gauge Theory and M(atrices)
By deﬁnition, the contraction over the values does not affect those indices of eS and eT over which they are contracted with multivectors that characterize the inﬁnitesimal integration volumes and with respect to which they are antisymmetrized when one constructs their wedge product.
