In poetry:
The Haggis, the Haggis;
Wull Wright an unco' wag is,
And he cried out wi' passion
"The smell itsel'
Might very well
Serve for a sodger's ration!"
"The Haggis" by Joseph Johnston Lee
I imagine him
Impotent as distant thunder,
In whose shadow I have eaten my ghost ration.
I wish him dead or away.
That, it seems, is the impossibility.
"The Jailer" by Sylvia Plath
Whiskered cats arointed flee,
Sturdy stoppers keep from thee
Cologne distillations;
Nuts lie in thy path for stones,
And thy feast-day macaroons
Turn to daily rations!
"To Flush, My Dog" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
And now each work (while nature's fabric stands)
Loud for its wise and mighty Lord demands
A rent of praise, a loud and lofty song,
From every rational beholder's tongue.
"The Believer's Principles : Chap. I." by Ralph Erskine
A ration of rum and a biscuit was served out to each man,
And the weary night passed, and then appeared the morning dawn;
And when the lifeboat hove in sight a sailor did shout,
"Thank God, there's she at last without any doubt."
"The Wreck of the 'Indian Chief'" by William Topaz McGonagall
Dusty patch in desolation, bare slab walls and earthen floor,
And a blinding drought is blazing from horizons to the door:
Milkless tea and ration sugar, damper junk and pumpkin mash—
And a Day on our Selection passes by me in a flash.
"The Last Review" by Henry Lawson

In science:
This is done by considering al l the Rational Non-Symmetrical Half Plane (RNSHP) linear orders, each inducing a different partitioning of the two-dimensional lattice into two sets by a broken straight line of rational slope.
The Rank of the Covariance Matrix of an Evanescent Field
Rn deﬁned by polynomial equations and inequations with rational coefﬁcients, and Ω is a rational differential form with rational coefﬁcients.
Galois theory, motives and transcendental numbers
If X ∞ is a smooth manifold, rational combinations of cycles give rise, by duality, to Betti (= singular) cohomology HB (X ∞) with rational coefﬁcients, whereas smooth complex differential forms give rise to De Rham cohomology HDR (X ∞ ).
Galois theory, motives and transcendental numbers
Deﬁnition 3.3 (universality). A computable, increasing and converging sequence {an} of rational numbers is cal led universal if for every computable, increasing and converging sequence {bn} of rational numbers there exists c ∈ N+ such that c(α−an ) ≥ β−bn for al l n ∈ N, where α = limn→∞ an and β = limn→∞ bn .
Equivalent characterizations of partial randomness for a recursively enumerable real
Thus, since α is r.e. and Martin-L¨of T -random by the assumption, it follows from Lemma 5.2 that there exist a computable, increasing sequence {an } of rational numbers and a rational number r > 0 such that an+1 − an > rε(cn+1 − cn ) for every n ∈ N, a0 > 0, and α = limn→∞ an .
