    • supra A prefix of Latin origin, meaning ‘above,’ ‘beyond.’ It is used in the same way as super-, with which in terms of anatomy, zoölogy, botany, etc., it is interchangeable, but is somewhat more technical. It is opposed to infra-, and to sub-, subter-, and hypo-. Recent technical words with supra- are in the following list left without further etymological note.

In science:

As we show next, the answer to this question turns out to be negative, as there are local measurements acting on entanglement witnesses that produce supra-quantum correlations.
Guess your neighbour's input: no quantum advantage but an advantage for quantum theory
Possible TDs are classified according to their dimensions: magnetic monopoles (0-dimensional, point-like); cosmic strings (1-dimensional); a sub-variety of the previous which carries current and is supra-conducting; domain walls (2-dimensional); textures (3-dimensional).
Physics of Extremely High Energy Cosmic Rays
Some tests of fundamental physics - the equation of state at supra-nuclear densities, the metric in strong gravity, the effect of magnetic fields above the quantum critical value - can only be measured using compact astrophysical ob jects: neutron stars and black holes.

The predictive power of such density functionals at supra-normal densities is restricted.

However, theoretical extrapolations to supra-normal densities diverge dramatically.

As we shall see later, the existence of perfect-fluid supra-dominated eras cannot be discarded.
Scalar phantom energy as a cosmological dynamical system
This is the first example in this work where we see supra-dominance of the perfect fluid over the phantom field, i.e. Ωγ > 1.
Scalar phantom energy as a cosmological dynamical system
We also show the phantom-divide (dashed) circumference, and some tra jectories where the perfect fluid is supra-dominant, see text for details.
Scalar phantom energy as a cosmological dynamical system
For this case, the only late-time attractor is the stable critical point C, i.e., the (phantom) perfect fluid dominates over the scalar field, even if a stage of supra-dominance is allowed initially.
Scalar phantom energy as a cosmological dynamical system
We also see that all tra jectories with initial perfect fluid supra-dominance never reach point D, and then always end up at critical point C.
Scalar phantom energy as a cosmological dynamical system
Another result is that supra-dominance of the perfect fluid Ωγ > 1 cannot be discarded in the case of a phantom scalar field, because the scalar field contribution Ωφ cannot be, in principle, bounded from below.
