In silver curves across the heathy land
Widen and wind the waters of the rill
Around the meadows' sloping sides where stand
The ruins of a mill.

Wearing autumnal warmth the farm sleeps by the mill,
Around each heavy eave low smoke hangs blue and still--
Life's flow is weak.

And kin hear the worter chuckle, and the wheel a-growlin' still;
And thum the bank below it I kin steal the old canoe,
And jes' git in and row it like the miller used to do.

Watched Murray with a sidelong look; an' each man wished him ill.
"Murray's Ride" by C J Dennis
Young life and young thought are alike barred,
And no unheralded noises jolt old nerves,
And old wheezy breaths
Pass around old thoughts, dry as snuff,
And there is no divergence and no friction
Because life is flattened and ground as by many mills.

In science:

In certain cases it is known how to set up ordinary field theoretic perturbation theory around such solitonic solutions, e.g. around instanton solutions of four-dimensional Yang--Mills theory.
Conformal field theory, boundary conditions and applications to string theory
In section 2.3 we will turn this argument around, and use 1-loop anomalies to compute the effective superpotential of N = 1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory directly.
String Theory and the Vacuum Structure of Confining Gauge Theories
The main idea here is that enlarging the gauge group appropriately and expanding the theory around the constant curvature background in the gravitational sector, one finds the usual Yang-Mills action functional as describing the low energy physics of the non-gravitational gauge fields.
New Action Principle for General Relativity
From the Yang-Mills point of view we only see the F 2 term in the expansion of the Born-Infeld energy around a flat background, as in (6). A static field configuration on a single flat p-brane has Born-Infeld energy EBI = τpqdet(δij + 2πα′Fij ).
Lectures on D-branes, Gauge Theory and M(atrices)
For slowly varying fields this theory can be approximated by a world-volume Dirac-Born-Infeld theory with a gauge group U(n), and for small perturbations around flat D-brane surface it can be approximated further by a U(n) super-Yang-Mills theory.
Classical Decay of the Non-SUSY-Preserving Configuration of Two D-Branes
Wrapping N D5-branes around the single CP1 generates N = 1 SuperYang-Mills theory with gauge group U (N ) in four dimensions.
Supersymmetric Gauge Theories from String Theory

SU(N) gauge theories at large N
Yang-Mills transformations occur at a fixed spacetime point whereas the diffeomorphism group moves points around.
Canonical Quantum Gravity and the Problem of Time
In the gauge theory language, the diagonal CFT solution (1.17) in fact hides a delta-function Yang-Mills curvature at the interaction point, such that the infinitesimal Wilson line around it coincides with this permutation group element .
Symmetries and interactions in matrix string theory
However, for comparison with the rigid SU (2) Yang-Mills theory, we need to expand the periods around x = 1, y = 0 (T = i, S → ∞), a point which is outside the radius of convergence of the solutions given in .
