That marks the steps of time,
And all my toil is fashioned
To symmetry and rhyme.

My halting footsteps seek and find--

The poise of heart and mind.

Rise broad and high,
With pinnacles among the clouds; ah, me!
None touch the sky.

With the sweet blue pleasure of eyes divine:
Be the marbles of symmetry thine,
Set in elysian air.

The interval ignores,
Deft industry, no time to lose,
Contrives and carries, hoists and hews,
And symmetry restores.

With the torn troubled form I know as thine,
That profile, placid as a brow divine,
With continents of moil and misery?

In science:
The time reversal symmetry and space reﬂection symmetry are not gauge symmetries.
Gauge Theory of Gravity
For hermitian hamiltonians, since H T = H ∗ , C and K symmetries are identical and we will only talk about C symmetry, where ǫc = +1 will be interpreted as time-reversal symmetry and ǫc = −1 will be referred to as particle-hole symmetry.
A Classification of random Dirac fermions
The groups generated either by a type Q and a type K , or by a type C and a type K symmetries are included in this list because the symmetries of type C , Q or K are linked by the fact the product of two of them produces a symmetry of the third type.
A Classification of Non-Hermitian Random Matrices
These classes have both chiral symmetry and particle-hole symmetry, with the matrices inforcing these symmetries commuting.
2d random Dirac fermions: large N approach
In the next section we introduce a simple lattice model which exhibits an exact fermionic symmetry and show that this symmetry is actually a BRST symmetry following from ﬁxing a local topological symmetry.
