In science:

Graphically, the operators bi (τ0 ) b j (τ ) are open ends delimiting a segment of a worldline (see Fig. 1) and are called the worm head and the worm tail.

Since the worm operators correspond to open ends on a world line segment they have no problem in exploring configurations with different winding numbers.

In (a) there are two full paths, and two segments which terminate on the worm head (I) and the worm tail (M).

After the update (b), the worm head has jumped to a neighbouring path, and a new segment is generated from time slice j to time slice j + ¯m, connecting the old position of the worm head with the previously existing path.
