In poetry:

Can they be my lassocks—ance cozie an' cosh,
Weel shapit, weel happit—sae stumpy an' tosh?
Twa coats an' a toush, or a goon, ye may ween,
Were boukie aneuch, wi' what nature had gi'en.
"Crinoline" by Janet Hamilton
O false SIR JOHN KANE! is it thus that you praych me?
I think all your Queen's Universitees Bosh;
And if you've no neetive Professor to taych me,
I scawurn to be learned by the Saxon M'COSH.
"The Last Irish Grievance" by William Makepeace Thackeray
As I think of the insult that's done to this nation,
Red tears of rivinge from me fatures I wash,
And uphold in this pome, to the world's daytistation,
The sleeves that appointed PROFESSOR M'COSH.

In news:

Butler coach Troy Morrell hugs quarterback Billy Cosh after the game Sunday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Cosh was injured at the end of the first half.

In science:

Since all the switches are completely uncorrelated, the original formula for Σ–potential, Eq. (3), results in the following expression for Ξ(X ): Ξ = N+κ log[cosh(2X− )].
Generalized Entropy approach to far-from-equilibrium statistical mechanics
The replica-symmetric order-parameter function may thus be written as exp {βx Pa σa + βy Pa σa τ a + β z Pa τ a } c(σ , τ ) = Z dx dy dz P (x, y , z ) [2eβy cosh (β (x + z )) + 2e−βy cosh (β (x − z ))]n , where the denominator serves to normalize R dx dy dz P (x, y , z ) = Pσ ,τ c(σ , τ ).
Metastable configurations of spin models on random graphs
The fourvelocity field of our solutions thus becomes uµ = (cosh η , 0, 0, sinh η ).

Simple solutions of relativistic hydrodynamics for longitudinally expanding systems
Longitudinal boostinvariance dictates freeze-out along a surface of fixed longitudinal proper time τf (x⊥ ), and we can write Σµ (x) = (cid:0)τf (x⊥ ) cosh η , x⊥ , τf (x⊥ ) sinh η(cid:1).
Elliptic Flow from a Transversally Thermalized Fireball
For massive particles we must generalize Eq. (5.3) by writing the first term as m⊥ cosh(y−η) and use k · u = γ⊥ (cid:0)m⊥ cosh(y−η) − k⊥ ·v⊥ (cid:1).

Elliptic regularity and solvability for partial differential equations with Colombeau coefficients
After the phase shift the modes are amplified by the factor cosh(Θ/2) and mixed, with the overlap sinh(Θ/2), and finally the outgoing modes gain the absolute phase Ψ/2 and the relative phase Λ.
