Nor my titanic tears the seas be dried."

Roofed by the azure of heaven, with sheen of blue waters afar.

In science:

If there is one scar on H (cid:48) then this scar corresponds to a boundary parallel disk in D , but we assumed all the disks in D were essential, so this is impossible.
Heegaard splittings and the pants complex
Thus the maximality assumption implies that every ball component H (cid:48) must have exactly three scars.
Heegaard splittings and the pants complex
Because H is connected and H (cid:48) is not all of H , there must be at least one scar on H (cid:48) .
Heegaard splittings and the pants complex
If there are two or more scars on H (cid:48) , let l1 , l2 be the boundaries of two scars in ∂H .
Heegaard splittings and the pants complex
Thus maximality of D implies that H (cid:48) must have exactly one scar.
Heegaard splittings and the pants complex
Because there is exactly one scar on H (cid:48) , these disks would also separate H .

Using ideas related to scar theory we derive an analytical formula that relates fluctuations in wave function intensities to fluctuations of the two-body interaction matrix elements.
Wave Function Structure in Two-Body Random Matrix Ensembles
We recall that deviations from RMT indicate some degree of wave function non-ergodicity and are related to phenomena like Fock space localization in many-body systems [9,10], and scars of periodic orbits [11,12] or invariant manifolds in classically chaotic systems.
Wave Function Structure in Two-Body Random Matrix Ensembles
To understand this surprising result, we may adapt a formalism previously used successfully to understand wave function scars and other types of anomalous quantum localization behavior in single-particle systems.
