In literature:

It was an insignificant affair of an almost extinct pattern, a single cylinder machine with a round tonneau back.
"The Tempting of Tavernake" by E. Phillips Oppenheim
The writing material, as in Babylonia, was often clay, over which seal-cylinders of a Babylonian pattern were rolled.
"History Of Egypt, Chaldæa, Syria, Babylonia, and Assyria, Volume 1 (of 12)" by G. Maspero
The peripheries of this row of cylinders are cut in figures, according to the design of the pattern to be worked.

In science:

This can be understood by the fact that it is the countable product (with the product topology) of a finite space (with the discrete topology). A consequence of this is that membership of a basic open set (cylinder) boils down to a pattern-matching and is then decidable.
Computability of probability measures and Martin-Lof randomness over metric spaces
Simulations with multiple atom pairs at different distances, corresponding to our experimental situation of two cylinders of atoms, fit the observed interference patterns well.
Observation of Stueckelberg oscillations in dipole-dipole interactions
The detailed flow pattern of plasma such as the poloidal current loop inside of the light cylinder was not clear because of low resolution of our previous work.
A Particle Simulation for the Axisymmetric Pulsar Magnetosphere: II. the case of dipole field
The pattern of pulsar emission depends on whether the disk can penetrate the light cylinder and efficiently quench the processes of particle production and acceleration inside the magnetospheric gap. A precessing disk may naturally account for the switch-on/off behavior in PSR B1931+24.
On the Present and Future of Pulsar Astronomy
Again there is a critical Hartmann number at which the ring geometry (m = 0) of the excited flow and field pattern changes to a nonaxisymmetric geometry with m = 1.2 Hence, also in experiments with rotating outer cylinder the magnetic field is able to produce nonaxisymmetric structure s.
