In science:

In an exhaustive Newtonian analytic stability analysis (Ciesielski et al., 2011) our group confirmed (in general) the suggestion made by Hirose et al. (2009a) that the delayed heating (5.43) stabilizes, in some parameter range, the radiation pressure thermal instability.
Slim accretion disks around black holes
In this region, the Lyman continuum photons have been exhausted, and the only photons that are present are stellar and nebular photons below the Lyman limit (including the Ly α radiation) which are not absorbed by hydrogen, but can heat the gas via the photoelectric effect from dust grains.
The temperature structure of dusty planetary nebulae
This heating can be provided by the photoelectric effect on small dust grains, whose importance with respect to heating by photoionization increases as the Lyman continuum photons become exhausted.
The temperature structure of dusty planetary nebulae
The collisional transport terms in this limit (parallel and perpendicular resistivity, viscosity, heat fluxes, etc .) were calculated [starting not from gyrokinetics but from the general Vlasov –Landau equation (36)] in exhaustive detail by Braginskii (1965).
