And thrust the dish before her, crying, 'Eat.'

Multi-hadron Final States
An observable similar to the thrust minor (in that it measures out-of-plane momentum), but defined in a manner analogous to the spherocity is the acoplanarity , which minimises a (squared) pro jection perpendicular to a plane.
Event shapes in e+e- annihilation and deep inelastic scattering
Notably for Drell-Yan production an out-of-plane momentum measurement has been proposed in and various thrust and thrust-minor type observables have been considered in hadron-hadron dijet production in [37–39].
Event shapes in e+e- annihilation and deep inelastic scattering
In the practice of comparing Monte Carlo simulations of multi-particle final states with data, it turns out that simulations typically account satisfactorily for other event shape observables, if they account for thrust, thrust major and thrust minor.
