Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n goy In Jewish use, a nation. Used in the singular for any nation, Jewish as well as Gentile. Where the plural goyim is used, however (save in particular cases, for example Gen. xxv. 23), it specially refers to non-Jewish nations, the Gentiles. In Yiddish this distinction is not fully recognized, and goy is used, somewhat like ‘heathen’ in English use, to imply inferiority, and is often employed among the Jews themselves as a term of contempt implying ignorance or stupidity.

In science:

Furthermore, we impose that kn be a scalar because spherical symmetry is implicit in Gledzer-Ohkitani-Yamada (GOY)type shell models which study homogeneous, isotropic turbulence [25, 26].
Universality of scaling and multiscaling in turbulent symmetric binary fluids
Since this sub ject was extensively covered in this workshop[Leutwyler, Goy-Lopez, Pelaez, Bedaque] I will say only that it is still very interesting and evolving.

We compare our results with the GOY shell model for fluid turbulence.

Equations (2) reduce to those for the Gledzer-Ohkitani-Yamada (GOY) shell model when the polymer-field terms are suppressed.
Drag Reduction by Polymer Additives in Decaying Turbulence
For our GOY shell model runs, we use initial parameter values as for the FENE-P shell model to facilitate comparisons between the two.

However, significant differences show up in the dissipation range: the spectrum for the FENE-P shell model falls much more slowly than its GOY-model counterpart indicating greatly reduced dissipation at large wavenumbers.
Drag Reduction by Polymer Additives in Decaying Turbulence
We note that our results in FIG. 1(b) distinctly differ from corresponding results for statistically steady turbulence, where a tilt in the spectrum has been observed at low wavenumbers in the FENE-P shell model relative to that obtained from the GOY shell model.

Drag Reduction by Polymer Additives in Decaying Turbulence
We observe that, in the GOY shell model, the flatness FK exhibits unbounded growth for large wavenumbers, an indication of strong intermittency in the dissipation scales.
