Emit in darkest gloom,
A sweeter fragrance 'round it clings,

Showered their leaves across the lane,
And round you stole the soft perfumes

In science:

The fundamental integration time was set to tint = 2.1 sec, with a total number of 15 to 20 exposures per single raster position.
Mid-infrared studies of the AGB star populations in the Local Group galaxies : the Magellanic Clouds
SNRmin is the threshold signal-to-noise ratio, Trec and Tsky are the receiver and sky noise temperatures, G is the gain of the antenna, ∆ν is the observing bandwidth, tint is the integration time, W is the detected pulse width and P is the pulse period.
Binary and Millisecond Pulsars at the New Millennium
Because they provide relatively uninteresting estimates of ∆I0 , the cluster fields with low integration times (tint < 15 ks as discussed in Section 2.5) are excluded from the results presented in this section.
A study of the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich increment using archival SCUBA data
The exponential distributions of random variables tint and tw are evidences of the random selection of tasks to execute [3, 10].
Editorial process in scientific journals: analysis and modeling
The exclusion of other physics in late stage growth then leads us to the dynamical scaling hypothesis [1,2]: l = l(t), where we use reduced time and length variables, l ≡ L/L0 and t ≡ (T − Tint )/T0 .
3D Spinodal Decomposition in the Inertial Regime
Vα = Hα − Tint and the α-independent intrinsic kinetic energy Tint = T − Tcm has been separated.

MD time is the number of trajectories multiplied by the trajectory length t. tint [P] denotes the integrated autocorrelation time for the plaquette.
Nf=2+1 dynamical Wilson quark simulation toward the physical point
The choice of W is not critical for estimate of tint in spite of the long tail observed in Fig. 1.
Nf=2+1 dynamical Wilson quark simulation toward the physical point
Extending the summation window, we find that tint [P] saturates at tint [P] ≈ 25 beyond t= 200, which is within the error bar of the original estimate.
Nf=2+1 dynamical Wilson quark simulation toward the physical point
We hardly observe the quark mass dependence for tint [P] listed in Table 1.
Nf=2+1 dynamical Wilson quark simulation toward the physical point
Note that the quark mass dependence is also tamed: Since we find tha t tint [P] is independent of the quark masses, the cost is proportional to 1/m2 ud .
Nf=2+1 dynamical Wilson quark simulation toward the physical point
We observe that the normalized autocorrelation functions for t = 0.5 have longer tails than t = 0.5/3 before becoming consistent with zero: This is quantitatively checked by the integrated autocorrelation times tint [P] and tint [#mult] in Table 2: The t = 0.5/3 case has shorter autocorrelation times.
Nf=2+1 dynamical Wilson quark simulation toward the physical point
This is confirmed by the integrated aut ocorrelation time tint [#mult] in Table 4. ne the machine-independent Now let us compare the efficiencies of both algorithms.
Nf=2+1 dynamical Wilson quark simulation toward the physical point
