In poetry:
Lost is that country, and all-but forgotten
Mid these chill breezes, yet still, oh, believe me,
All her meridian suns and ardent summers
Burn in my bosom.
"Myvanwy" by Manmohan Ghose
Far off on that sea there lies,
North of the Heights of Lauderdale,
Meridian, 'neath a haze of skies,
And seems, upon that distant vale,
Fleet like, anchored on the deep.

When in meridian lustre shines my fair,
When warm'd with dinner's toil, in pearly rills,
Adown her goodly cheeks the sweat distils.

From dazzling deluges of snow,
From summer noon's meridian glow,
We turn our aching eye,
To nature's robe of vernal green,
To the blue curtain all serene,
Of an autumnal sky.

Mind not gay ornaments, nor vestments fine,
In paradise their garments all are white,
Thy own shall there with dazzling lustre shine,
Than the meridian sun itself more bright.

Then close again the seam,
Which thou hast open'd; do not spread thy robe
In hope of great things. Call to mind thy dream,
An earthly globe,
On whose meridian was engraven,
These seas are tears, and heav'n the haven.

In science:
If one takes the north pole p(θ = 0, φ = 0), the curve ψt (p) is the path obtained as product of the paths deﬁned by the meridians φ = π/2 and φ = 3π/2.
Hamiltonian symplectomorphisms and the Berry phase
Let us ﬁx an orientation on the meridian of ∂M consistent with the orientation of the ﬁbre.
Generalized Markoff Maps and McShane's Identity
The commutator, [a, b] = aba−1 b−1 is peripheral in T, and so represents a meridian of ∂M .
Generalized Markoff Maps and McShane's Identity
Let T be a torus boundary component which is ﬁlled so that the boundary of a meridian disk maps to a loop α ⊂ T .
Heegaard splittings and the pants complex
The loop l1 deﬁnes a meridian curve on a component of K .
Heegaard splittings and the pants complex
Let c1 (M , M (cid:48) ) be the minimum number of components of a link K ⊂ M such that M (cid:48) is the result of a surgery in which a meridian of each component is replaced by a loop which intersects the meridian once.

Note that H ∼= Zℓ is generated by the meridians {µi}ℓ i=1 for the components Ki of L.
Holomorphic disks and link invariants
Indeed, we can construct ~v in such a manner that the difference ~v − f ∗ (~v) is the Poincar´e dual of a meridian for γ , thought of as an element of H1(N (γ ) − P ).
Holomorphic disks and link invariants
This gives the nowhere vanishing vector ﬁeld ~v , with a closed orbit which coincides with an oriented meridian for γ ⊂ P .

Generalized Property R and the Schoenflies Conjecture
Consider then the result of 0-framed surgery on k in the manifold S3 − N : P can be capped off to give a sphere which is non-separating in the new manifold, since a meridian of h(k) intersects P in an odd number of points.
Generalized Property R and the Schoenflies Conjecture
If T bounds a solid torus in X1 then we may as well have used the meridian of that torus for D1 and invoked the inductive hypothesis.
Generalized Property R and the Schoenflies Conjecture
After perhaps a torus unknotting, T bounds a solid torus in X1 as well, and again we could replace D1 by a meridian of that torus and invoke the inductive hypothesis.
