In science:

In the continuum limit, these holes correspond to insertions of operators – of “microscopic operators,” if nk is held fixed as a → 0, and of “macroscopic operators” if nk · a is held fixed (compare with subsections 4.2, 4.3).
Extending the Theory of Random Surfaces
We present two pieces of evidence in support of the conjecture that the microscopic spectral density of the Dirac operator is a universal quantity.
The chiral phase transition, random matrix models, and lattice data
We conclude that a lattice size of 64 is sufficient to identify the universal microscopic spectral density of the Dirac operator.
The chiral phase transition, random matrix models, and lattice data
We have presented very direct evidence for the universality of the microscopic spectral density of the Dirac operator by comparing lattice data obtained by Berbenni-Bitsch and Meyer to predictions from random matrix theory.
The chiral phase transition, random matrix models, and lattice data
We have studied the microscopic level density of the resulting Dirac operator numerically and confirmed the anticipated agreement with the universal behaviour found empirically in QCD lattice data and analytically in other chiral random matrix models.

Logarithmic Universality in Random Matrix Theory
Thus, the ‘only’ job that is left for a microscopic derivation is to decide whether the operators permitted by symmetry are actually realized in the field theory, and to fix their coupling constants.
Field Theory of the Random Flux Model
This is a poor approximation that has a serious effect especially on the calculation of the expectation values of microscopic operators such as the original spins.
Numerical renormalization-group study of spin correlations in one-dimensional random spin chains
A method for a microscopic description of Λ hypernuclei is formulated in the framework of the unitary-model-operator approach. A unitarily transformed hamiltonian is introduced and given in a cluster expansion form.

Although the basic phenomenology of the aging process has been described in an impressive variety of experimental data, it is nevertheless difficult to understand any present aging measurement at a microscopic level and/or to extrapolate it to other operating conditions.
Summary and Outlook of the International Workshop on Aging Phenomena in Gaseous Detectors (DESY, Hamburg, October, 2001)
The oscillator model is a convenient tool to establish a “bridge” between the microscopic physics, where the oscillator variables a∗ and a naturally describe spin excitations (as creation and annihilation operators), and the macroscopic stochastic magnetization dynamics for normal modes.
Reply on ``Fluctuation-dissipation considerations for phenomenological damping models for ferromagnetic thin films'' [N. Smith, J. Appl. Phys. \bf{92}, 3877 (2002)]
We argue that this tension should be found in the microscopic picture if we include the ‘twist operator interaction’ in the microscopic CFT, something we have not done in our leading order computation.

This provided for the first time a microscopic definition of the operationally measurable entropy of macroscopic systems in equilibrium.

However, usually in electromagnetic probes of microscopic systems, we are constrained to make measurements associated with one-photon exchange, corresponding to a matrix element of a one-body operator.
