As they who leave the sun behind
Walk in the shadows of themselves alone.

There is no evidence for a deviation of the spectral shape from the predicted shape on the non-oscillation hypothesis.
Neutrino Oscillations. Theory and Experiment
Different regions of the parameter space are associated with deﬁnite geometric shapes, such as spherical and deformed shapes and a condensate of quadrupole bosons.
How random are random nuclei? Shapes, triangles and kites
As the cluster will at ﬁrst be typically circular in shape (if the temperature is not too low) it has to deform into more elliptical shape, with a longer interface than the band, before the latter can be formed.
Magnetization reversal times in the 2D Ising model
In a mean-ﬁeld analysis, it was found that different regions of the parameter space can be associated with particular intrinsic vibrational states, which in turn correspond to deﬁnite geometric shapes: a spherical shape, a deformed shape or a condensate of quadrupole bosons.
Shape phase transitions and random interactions
As we learnt above, its macroscopic shape depends on the probability distribution, while locally its microscopic shape is universal.

According to Hamy’s theorem, see Moritz , the exact shape is not ellipsoidal, so we regard an ellipsoidal shape as a constraint and ﬁnd the equilibrium shape, among these, by minimizing the energy. A further approximation (iv) is the neglect of differential rotation.
The physics of rotational flattening and the point core model
Symbol ma jor axis (horizontal extent) is linearly related to log luminosity in the 0.1 i band (smaller symbols mean lower luminosities; compare to Figure 2), and the symbol shape shows the galaxy shape as observed on the sky.

Random surfaces enumerating algebraic curves
We have established that some of the things that may make a system chaotic are: complex many–body or gauge ﬁeld interactions, a random impurity potential, or irregular shape (where irregular means any shape leading to classical chaotic motion).

The volume of a vertex v in a shape is the volume of the (sub)shape rooted at v .
Simple free star-autonomous categories and full coherence
If the shape is classically chaotic (e.g., a stadium), the experimental results agree with predictions from RMT as expected, in contrast to data obtained with quantum dots of regular shape where the ﬂuctuations are not universal .
Furthermore, note that the robustness of the shape the additivity of the discrete (specific to the system) band and the “noise” (continuous) one is an immediate result of the boundedness. It should be stressed that its lack makes the shape of the power spectrum strongly dependent on the statistics of the time series.
