In science:

One can attach a boundary I = S 2 × R to the spacetime manifold M in such a way that ˜M = M ∪ I is a manifold with boundary. I is called the “conformal infinity”, or scri.
Asymptotic generators of fermionic charges and boundary conditions preserving supersymmetry
SCRIP needs to modify the algorithm to calculate the weights f SCRI P,ext (Eq. 28).
Conservative Regridding When Grid Cell Edges Are Unknown -- Case of SCRIP
The equator, defined by ξ = π 2 , is a 2-sphere and is a boundary-at-infinity (I , called scri), since the conformal factor cos ξ is zero there.
Positive Energy for Asymptotically Anti-de Sitter Schwarzschild Spacetimes
The Fermilab and SCRI groups use the S − P and 1S − 2S splittings in the Υ system to determine αs .
The QCD Coupling Constant
Soon afterwards, Penrose devised the conformal compactification of null infinity I (“scri”), thereby reducing to geometry the asymptotic description of the physical properties of the radiation zone, most notably the Bondi mass and news function [116].
Characteristic Evolution and Matching
Another line of research related to the long time behavior of solutions focuses on determining which sets of asymptotically Euclidean initial data develop into spacetimes which can be conformally compactified so as to include the familiar “scri” structure at null infinity.
Matters of Gravity, the newsletter of the Topical Group in Gravitation of the American Physical Society
Combining the gluing work of Corvino-Schoen discussed above with Friedrich’s work on the generation of scri from sufficiently small initial data on an asymptotically hyperbolic spacelike surface, one now knows that there are non stationary, radiating solutions with a complete scri.
Matters of Gravity, the newsletter of the Topical Group in Gravitation of the American Physical Society
Bishop presented progress on the extraction of gravitational waves at scri by matching to an outgoing null grid.
