I saw it borne away,
My empty crystal form,
Exultant saw it caught
Into the current's spin,
The flashing water's run.

Geometry of generalized higher order fields. Applications to classical linear electrodynamics
Run away solutions are solutions that have the following peculiar behavior: even if the external forces have a compact domain in the spacetime, the charged particles follows accelerating without end.

The power dissipation at these operating voltages must be controlled, and this places strong requirements on the cooling to prevent thermal run-away.

Here, we explore the growth of a very massive MS star (a few ×102 to ∼ 104 M⊙ ) by run-away merging of stars (Rasio & Freitag, 2003).
Modest-2: A Summary
This run-away route has been shown to operate in FP models of simple proto-galactic nucleus models by Quinlan & Shapiro (1990, hereafter QS90) and in N -body simulations of populous young clusters by Portegies Zwart & McMillan (2002).
Modest-2: A Summary
Not surprisingly, if we use the same, unrealistic, treatment of collisions as QS90, we get clear run-away growth of one or a few particles.
Modest-2: A Summary
At the transition points between finite and infinite capacity the fixed point runs away to infinity which suggests that it has a central role to play in organising the critical solution in the finite capacity case.

At much higher µ, however, T needs to be correspondingly higher in order that reasonable FAC results are obtained, but this is primarily due to the run-away behavior of the FAC scales and not so much due to the behavior of the pressure itself.

The critical point is that these dynamical motions stretch the field lines yet more radially, allowing yet more angular momentum to flow between the elements, and the process runs away.
