In poetry:

"Fer Green is gone, an' Craig is gone, an' Gawd! 'ow many more!
Who sleep the sleep at Sari Bair beside that sunny shore!
An' little Smith uv Collin'wood, a bandage 'round 'is 'ead,
He 'ums a savage song an' vows quick vengeance fer the dead.
"Sari Bair" by C J Dennis
"Then Sari Bair, O Sari Bair, 'twus you wot seen it done,
The day the transports rode yer bay beneath a smilin' sun.
We boasted much, an' toasted much; but where yer tide line creeps,
'Twus you, me dainty Sari Bair, that seen us play fer keeps.
"Sari Bair" by C J Dennis
"An' Sari Bair, O Sari Bair, you seen 'ow it wus done,
The transports dancin' in yer bay beneath the bonzer sun;
An' speckled o'er yer gleamin' shore the little 'uddled 'eaps
That showed at last the Southern breed could play the game fer keeps.
"Sari Bair" by C J Dennis
"But Sari Bair, me Sari Bair, the secrets that you 'old
Will shake the 'earts uv Southern men when all the tale is told;
An' when they git the strength uv it, there'll never be the need
To call too loud fer fightin' men among the Southern breed."
"Sari Bair" by C J Dennis
And, as that sun set in the azure vast,
Who counted one day more or one day less?
How many deemed it was for them the last
To light a world of blood and bitterness?
Yet bitterness for many a heart lay there
When next the sun blazed over Sari Bair.
"Anzac Eve" by C J Dennis
"Thro' the smoke I seen 'im strivin', Craig uv Queensland, tall an' strong,
Like an 'arvester at 'ay-time singin', swingin' to the song.
An' little Smith uv Collin'wood, 'e 'owled a fightin' tune,
On the day we chased Mahomet over Sari's sandy dune.

In science:

Our fitted R band values of temporal flux decay α and derived optical-near IR spectral slope β can be well understood in terms of simple spherical adiabatic case for the homogeneous medium (Sari, Piran, & Narayan 1998) in which for ν < νc , α = 3β/2 = 3(p − 1)/4.
Optical afterglow of the not so dark GRB 021211
Sari (1999) and Ghisellini & Lazzati (1999) predicts a 90 degrees change in the position angle, roughly around the time of the break.
Variable polarization in the optical afterglow of GRB 021004
If Γ(t) is different than assumed in Sari (1999) and Ghisellini & Lazzati (1999), which is not unlikely in view of the complex behaviour of the light curve and its explanations, the time of the break will be different than estimated above.
Variable polarization in the optical afterglow of GRB 021004
The smooth and gradual break in the light curve would mean that the ratio θ/θ0 is high and we are viewing the jet close to the edge (see Sari 1999; Ghisellini & Lazzati 1999).
Variable polarization in the optical afterglow of GRB 021004
Such a shock follows a Type II self-similar solution as discussed by Sari (2005) and Nakayama & Shigeyama (2005) and outlined briefly here. §3 describes the asymptotic solution as the shock front reaches the surface of the star, a singular point.
Self-similar solutions for relativistic shocks emerging from stars with polytropic envelopes
Here we will simply state the solution; for a detailed derivation see Sari (2005) or Nakayama & Shigeyama (2005).
Self-similar solutions for relativistic shocks emerging from stars with polytropic envelopes
Following Sari (2005), we let R(t) be the solution’s characteristic position, which we choose to be the position of the shock front while the shock is within the star.
Self-similar solutions for relativistic shocks emerging from stars with polytropic envelopes
While the self-similar solution they give for the flow before breakout is identical to the one in Sari (2005) and outlined here, they do not give analytic results for or a physical interpretation of the self-similar solution after breakout.
Self-similar solutions for relativistic shocks emerging from stars with polytropic envelopes
Lorentz factor of the shocked electrons (Sari et al. 1998), and me is the rest mass of electron.
Late internal shock model for bright X-ray flares in Gamma-ray Burst afterglows and GRB 011121
This is a blast wave solution analogues to the non-relativistic Sedov-Taylor solution (Granot and Sari, 2002; Sari and Piran, 1995).
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
Such a break was suggested and interpreted as the limit where the relativistic jet is decelerated enough so that the relativistic beaming angle ( 1/Γ) becomes larger than the jet opening angle θj (Rhoads, 1997, 1999; Panaitescu and M´esz´aros, 1999; Sari et al., 1999).
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
There is a prevailing consensus that the basic mechanism of GRB emission is an expanding relativistic fireball (Rees & Meszaros 1992, Meszaros & Rees 1993, Sari et al. 1998), with the beamed radiation (δ∼O(102) due to internal/external shocks (prompt/afterglow phase, respectively).
