I received the impression of a life intense and brutal, savage, multicoloured, and vivacious.

Many of these works are made repulsive by their aspect of multicoloured crude and barbarous imagery.
"Ivory Apes and Peacocks" by James Huneker

In science:

As several hosts with a young stellar population have unknown morphologies, this observation could be linked to the bluer colours of elliptical quasar hosts in comparison to inactive ellipticals found in several recent multicolour imaging studies (e.g.
On-axis spectroscopy of the host galaxies of 20 optically luminous quasars at z~0.3
The use of principal component analysis with a multicolour photometry (e.g. in S¨uveges et al. 2011) is an attempt to use efficiently the variability in different photometric bands.
The impact of Gaia and LSST on binary stars and exo-planets
We introduce a class of random fields that can be understood as discrete versions of multicolour polygonal fields built on regular linear tessellations.
Multi-colour random fields with polygonal realisations
The same holds for any tree, except that you get multicoloured P´olya urns.
Reinforced random walk
Here it is not important what graph one looks at, each vertex can be isolated and treated as a multicoloured urn independent of all others.
Reinforced random walk
Some old and new evidence for the existence of the string (planar random surfaces) representation of multicolour QCD are reviewed.
A String Project in Multicolour QCD
The principal model considered in this communication will be the Wilson lattice U (N ) gauge theory without quarks, particularly its large N (multicolour) limit.
A String Project in Multicolour QCD
Very few things are known about the critical behaviour of this SC expansion in multicolour Wilson gauge theory.
A String Project in Multicolour QCD
Our task here is rather to demonstrate the possibility of the existence of such a representation in principle, then to get a well elaborated quantitative approach to the multicolour QCD.
A String Project in Multicolour QCD
The only purpose of the relations found here, between the gluon condensates and the momenta of the lagrange multiplier, was to show the existence of the new nontrivial weights in the modified SC expansion leading to a lattice string representation for the multicolour gauge theory.
A String Project in Multicolour QCD
They have made use of two different correction methods for the peak magnitudes, namely the Multicolour Light Curve Shape method (MLCS) and a template method.

Chapter 4 is devoted to the studies of a large sample of early-type galaxies in the Abell 496 cluster, based on multi-ob ject spectroscopy and deep multicolour photometry.
Formation and Evolution of Dwarf Elliptical Galaxies
The obtained multicolour CCD observations are unique in extent.
Studying Blazhko RR Lyrae stars with the 24-inch telescope of the Konkoly Observatory
The advantage of this telescope is that without time limit, we can obtain extended multicolour observations of many Blazhko stars with good photometric accuracy.
Studying Blazhko RR Lyrae stars with the 24-inch telescope of the Konkoly Observatory
This survey makes it possible to re fine the incidence rate of the modulation and provides uniquely extended multicolour light curves of Blazhko stars to study the details of the Blazhko effect.
