Usage

In literature:

No lady could say that she had witnessed a fight at a Clover Leaf hop in several years.
"The Four Million" by O. Henry
The yellow hop clover we also find along the roadside.
"Mary at the Farm and Book of Recipes Compiled during Her Visit among the "Pennsylvania Germans"" by Edith M. Thomas
They hopped down to the brook, but they could not see any clover there.
"Bunny Rabbit's Diary" by Mary Frances Blaisdell
Peter Rabbit was hopping along on the edge of the Green Meadows, looking for a new patch of sweet clover.
"Mother West Wind "Where" Stories" by Thornton W. Burgess
This yellow is the hop-clover.
"Hildegarde's Holiday" by Laura E. Richards

In science:

This would be equivalent in the standard clover action, to making the size of the clover term a function of the hopping parameter κ, rather than a function of β .
Tests of Hypercubic Fermion Actions
In order to compare the OK action with the clover action, we compute the rest and kinetic masses of heavy-light and heavy-heavy systems at four different hopping-parameter values, ˜κt = 0.042, 0.040, 0.038, 0.036.
Numerical Tests of the Improved Fermilab Action
As one can see, the clover action suffers from serious deviations from I (cid:54)= 0, especially for hopping parameters in the b-quark region.
Numerical Tests of the Improved Fermilab Action
The fit shown has a ground state mass of 0.98(26) in lattice units at β = 6.0 with tadpole-improved clover action for hopping parameter K = 0.137.
Glueballs and Hybrid Mesons
We used a SW-clover fermionic action with clover coefficient c = 1.4785 and hopping parameter K = 0.1370.
