One very marked feature of the Wank was its awful smell.

In poetry:

Love again: wanking at ten past three
(Surely he's taken her home by now?),
The bedroom hot as a bakery,
The drink gone dead, without showing how
To meet tomorrow, and afterwards,
And the usual pain, like dysentery.
"Love Again" by Philip Larkin

Remarks to Glazek's results on n-ary groups
This is done in a similar way as in the LogCFL algorithm from Wanke for testing that a graph has bounded treewidth.
Restricted Space Algorithms for Isomorphism on Bounded Treewidth Graphs
Very simplified, Wanke’s algorithm on input a graph H starts guessing a root bag and it guesses then non-deterministically further bags in the decomposition using the pushdown to test that these bags fulfill the properties of a tree decomposition and that every edge in G is included in some bag.
Restricted Space Algorithms for Isomorphism on Bounded Treewidth Graphs
Our algorithm simulates Wanke’s algorithm as a subroutine.
