    “To say yes, you have to sweat and roll up your sleeves and plunge both hands into life up to the elbows. It's easy to say no, even if it means dying.”

    “Slang is a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands and goes to work.”

Take up to heaven the hearts of those
Whose souls will come behind.

Swings gleaming in the gloom;
The candles glimmer and denser
Rolls up the pale perfume.

From day to day unweariedly;
Sure as the sun rolls up the morn,
Or twilight from the eve is born,
Our song ascends to Thee.

And from the little worm, whose light
Shines palely thro' the shades of night,
Up to the sparkling stars that run
Their evening rounds—or glorious sun,
Rolling his car to twilight's rest,—
All, all in Thee is bright and blest.

In science:

For N = 200, a toroidal convection roll is clearly present in which the particles flow, on average, up from the border and down the center.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
However, one sees that for N = 1000, the convection roll breaks up and spheres flow from the side wall either upwards to hit the top of the chamber, or downwards to the sonotrode.

One normally assumes that inflation ends either before reaching Sc , whenever the slow-roll parameters become too big (order one), or at Sc , because then spontaneous symmetry breaking starts and will speed up the fields very quickly.
D-term inflation after spontaneous symmetry breaking
The extra dimensions are “compactified” (rolled up) on circles of small radius R so that they are not normally observable.
Neutrino Mass
The shocks are all captured; the slip surface rolling up under the shock is evident.
Adaptive Multi-Dimensional Particle In Cell
All the structure inside the rolling up region within the outer shocks is lost: no slip surface is measured and the internal shock is also lost.
Adaptive Multi-Dimensional Particle In Cell
In practice the warp indicator is often supplemented by other ad hoc detectors to pick up all shocks, but still the rolling up region and the slip surfaces are often left undetected.

As a consequence, the potential slow roll parameter picks up a dependence ηV ∝ Ki¯ı , where Ki¯ı is the component of the field space metric in front of the φi kinetic term.
Primordial Fluctuations in String Cosmology
Such a two-vortex state presumably results in a periodic azimuthal temperature variation close to the sidewall which cannot be distinguished from the temperature signature of a convection roll with up-flow and down-flow near the side wall.

Starting from equations (1.16) and (1.17), we represent the classical string tra jectory by means of a diagonal N × N matrix (with N = N1 + N2 ) by first writing the transversal coordinates ~X as a function of w defined in (3.11), and then “roll up” the spatial interval 0 ≤ σ < N onto the short interval 0 ≤ σ < 1.

Very occasionally the filament would roll up to become a roughly round vortex, however these structure were always much weaker than the surrounding structures and were always quickly dissipated.
