In poetry:

To these, we'll get some scribe to write,
And tell them not to let thee shine—

Any where, south of Dixon's line.
If, beyond that, thou shin'st, an inch,
We'll have thee up before Judge Lynch:—

In science:

Our observations indicate that expansion of the dusty medium does not red-shift the emergent K I emission line as much as it does the stellar absorption spectrum (see §3); but a quantitative model is necessary to judge whether this is to be expected.
High Resolution, Long - Slit Spectroscopy of VY CMa: The Evidence for Localized High Mass Loss Events
Hence, the three (solid, dashed, and dot-dashed) lines drawn for bd-gs, rs-bu, and gu-rd quarks respectively in Fig. 4 suffice for judging if gapless quarks are present or not.
Analytical and numerical evaluation of the Debye and Meissner masses in dense neutral three-flavor quark matter
Judging from Fig. 7 in Takeda et al. (2005), the UVES POP spectrum of HD 140283 is affected by residual fringing, which in this case apparently has led to a spurious enhancement of the λ8694.6 S i line, as also pointed out by Korn & Ryde (2005).
Sulphur and zinc abundances in Galactic halo stars revisited
In the figures the typical noise level can be judged by the peak-to-peak 3 lines.
H3+ in Diffuse Interstellar Clouds: a Tracer for the Cosmic-Ray Ionization Rate
We judge the benefit of a certain number of redundant ancillary lines by computing the minimum firm generation capacity required to drive the probability of a firm generator overload from a finite number to zero in the limit of M → ∞ and D = O(1).
Message Passing for Integrating and Assessing Renewable Generation in a Redundant Power Grid
Since T itself is much the same in each cloud (as judged by the widths of the HI emission lines) one would require that n is much the same in each cloud.
On the Ionisation of Warm Opaque Interstellar Clouds and the Intercloud Medium
They were chosen to have ages greater than 2 Gyr, as judged from the CaII H&K chromospheric emission line, because of the resulting photospheric stability of older stars.
Optical SETI: A Spectroscopic Search for Laser Emission from Nearby Stars
Neutral hydrogen diffusion across field lines as proposed by Judge (2008) maybe an explanation of the uniform brightness of the plage in Lyα but better calculations are needed before we can establish the viability of this mechanism.
The Structure and Dynamics of the Upper Chromosphere and Lower Transition Region as Revealed by the Subarcsecond VAULT Observations
The VAULT observations have provoked new ideas about the nature of the TR as the region where neutral hydrogen atoms from these threads diffuse across magnetic field lines, interact with nearby electrons and subsequently excite, ionize, and/or radiate to provide the emission we see in TR lines (Judge, 2008).
The Structure and Dynamics of the Upper Chromosphere and Lower Transition Region as Revealed by the Subarcsecond VAULT Observations
In Bifrost the function f (T ) is computed by using ionization and recombination rates given by Arnaud & Rothenflug (1985) and Shull & van Steenberg (1982) and collisional excitation rates given by the HAO-DIAPER atom data package (Judge & Meisner 1994) including lines from He, C, O, Ne and Fe.

The judge writes the letters corresponding to the terminals in order from least to most human-like, and draws a line purporting to separate the computer contestants from the human confederates.
Lessons from a Restricted Turing Test
To allow for this to be deduced as well, each judge was requested to place a single line separating the ranked agents into two groups.
Lessons from a Restricted Turing Test
Those to the right of the line were claimed by that judge to be humans, those to the left computers. (See Figure 1.) The judges were told that at least two of the agents were human confederates, and at least two computer contestants, thus limiting the number of places that the line could be (rationally) placed.
Lessons from a Restricted Turing Test
Once the number of confederates had been reduced to the announced minimum, it became impossible for a judge to rationally place the demarcation line between “humans” and “computers” in such a way as to rate a human as a computer without also rating a computer as a human.
