The Cluster Mass Function from Weak Gravitational Lensing
The formulation of a rigorous concept of “asymptotic flatness” in GR is far from straightforward, due to the absence of a background metric or preferred coordinate system, in terms of which falloff rates can be specified.
Numerical modeling of black holes as sources of gravitational waves in a nutshell
In the first approach one simply assumes the existence of a suitable coordinate system, which is then used to formulate falloff conditions for tensor components in this coordinate system.
Numerical modeling of black holes as sources of gravitational waves in a nutshell
If the manifold S has a nonempty boundary, or is not compact, it will be necessary to impose boundary conditions or asymptotic falloff conditions, which have to be chosen, along with the topology of S , on physical grounds.

Aspects of Confinement in Coulomb Gauge
From Eq. (2), it is clear that HT processes involving a large number of active fields will result into a p⊥ -exponent larger than the LT expectation (n > 4), but will exhibit a slower falloff with x⊥ from the smaller number of spectator fields.

We have also checked that the analysis sketched above satisfies several appropriate consistency checks and has suitable well-behaved limits . A particularly important case (not dealt with in ) is to consider the situation where one side of the potential exhibits power law (rather than exponential) falloff.
