In science:

In this state, the carriers can avoid the occupancy in both neighboring pairs, Vc and Vp , therefore it is stabilized at Vc ≃ Vp , compared with the stripe-type CO states which cost loss in either one of these Coulomb repulsion terms.
Theoretical Aspects of Charge Ordering in Molecular Conductors
The results suggest that a horizontal stripe-type solution as shown in Fig. 16(a) can have the lowest energy for Vc & Vp .
Theoretical Aspects of Charge Ordering in Molecular Conductors
D Heisenberg systems with spins on the charge rich sites along the stripes, then quantum fluctuation may destroy the antiferromagnetic spin order found in MF solutions (see Fig. 16).
Theoretical Aspects of Charge Ordering in Molecular Conductors
In fact, such behavior is typically observed in the measurements on θET2RbZn(SCN)4 and α-ET2 I3 at ambient pressure, both showing horizontal stripe type CO but absolutely different magnetic behavior.
Theoretical Aspects of Charge Ordering in Molecular Conductors
The vertical stripes on the edges of the AEC maps are an artefact of the measurement not related to temperature.

Abstract. - Interfaces in two-dimensional systems exhibit unexpected complex dynamical behaviors, the dynamics of a border connecting a stripe pattern and a uniform state is studied.
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
As an example, the Newell-Whitehead-Segel equation describes the dynamics of a stripe pattern formed in a twodimensional system.
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
The aim of this letter is to study the dynamical behaviors of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state.
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
It is important to note that, localized stripe patterns with flat interfaces have been observed in ref. .
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
When the term proportional to spatial forcing is zero (η → 0), the above model is the Newell-Whitehead-Segel amplitude equation, which have been used deeply to explain the appearance of stripe pattern .
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
Which accounts for the connection between the stripe pattern and the uniform state.
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
When η is small the non-null uniform solution becomes a stripe state in the ydirection (cf.
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
Summary. – Isotropic systems which have coexistence between stable stripe pattern and uniform states can exhibit interfaces connecting these states.
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
Hence, we expect that a system that exhibits a coexistence between a stripe pattern and a homogeneous state should be present a rich interface dynamics.
Transversal interface dynamics of a front connecting a stripe pattern to a uniform state
The striped region is that favored by SUSY models.
