In science:

One could also consider an additional linear contribution of the form [K] but this is actually a redundant operator, the tadpole can always be reabsorbed by field redefinition of the dynamical metric.
Galileons in the Sky
It has a distinct advantage over other competing procedures, in that it can be used with formally non-renormalizable theories, as shown in [38, 39]. A further feature of this approach is that divergences are not reabsorbed, each one is removed and replaced by an arbitrary factor.
Zeta function regularization in Casimir effect calculations and J.S. Dowker's contribution
PGR )∆h of the AG correction that enters the odds ratio; this is indeed the residual that cannot be reabsorbed by shifting the estimated values of the GR parameters, and the larger the ∆h⊥ , the more evidence there is for the AG hypothesis.
Testing general relativity with gravitational waves: a reality check
Thus, for fixed FF the odds ratio scales as SNR2 , just as it does in the Bayesian decision scheme for the (non)detection of a known signal in noise; for fixed SNR the odds ratio scales as 1−FF, so the odds ratio is larger with stronger and less reabsorbable AG deviations.
Testing general relativity with gravitational waves: a reality check
This happens because the FF is an SNR-independent measure of the strength of the AG corrections ∆h⊥ that cannot be reabsorbed by changing the GR source parameters from their true values.
Testing general relativity with gravitational waves: a reality check
Nevertheless, preliminary claims of sensitivity to specific AG corrections may be overoptimistic, because ∆h could be largely reabsorbed by systematic effects that are initially neglected.

For massless quarks, a θ-term in the QCD Lagrangian can be reabsorbed via a redefinition of the fermion fields, by a global UA (1) rotation.
SU(N) gauge theories at large N
To alleviate this problem, one can introduce a tadpole- or mean-field-improved coupling, which is obtained by integrating out the high-frequency modes of the gauge fields, and reabsorbing the resulting constant into a redefinition of the coupling [687, 688].
SU(N) gauge theories at large N

Wigner transformation for the determinant of Dirac operators
Until recently, it was believed that the large logarithmic terms could be reabsorbed into the soft parameters6 of V (Q), and in consequence, ∆V only contained small logarithmic corrections.

Quantum mechanics tell us that each hadron is a complicated evolving superposition of virtual states (at long distances one can think of the proton emitting and reabsorbing pions, etc; at short distances one imagines fluctuations of the partonic structure due QCD radiation).

This happens, in particular, to the dominant part of the ≃ m2 t ”blind” contribution carried from σb to σ5 at LEP2 which is, so to say, ”reabsorbed” by the input parameters Γ5 , and for a full and detailed discussion of this point we defer to Ref..

Nevertheless, it’s worth to point out that in our formulation the LEP2 observables are essentially free of mt , MH whose dominant contributions are reabsorbed in the theoretical input (as discussed in this does not introduce any appreciable theoretical error).
