The slash ( / )—technically known as a virgule but also called a slant, solidus, or stroke (the common name in British English)—serves a number of purposes in writing, essentially standing in for other words as a quick and clear way of showing the connection between two things. A slash is conventionally used without spaces between it and the words it connects (although it is also common to see spaces used, especially if one or both of the things being joined contain multiple words).

Numerical analysis of corona field is based on the assumption that space charges don't change the coordinates of separatrix points determined by an electrostatic approach.
Coordinates of separatrix points are being computed in the Stage 4, and their potentials are determined in the Stage 5.
Field strength equals to 0 in the separatrix point x = -10 mm.
4b, the value of m has been reduced sufficiently to cause the intersection of the separatrix of the two basins with the boundary of the attractor, i.
9a is such a plot: the lower equilibrium in this case is chaotic, the upper equilibrium is a focal point attractor (damped oscillations), and the middle point is unstable and marks a point on the separatrix between the two basins of attraction (illustrated in this example by a dotted line).
Here the separatrix has encountered the boundary of the strange attractor, and the lower basin of attraction merges with the upper basin.
These endpoints have domains of attraction bounded by a separatrix running through a third, unstable equilibrium.
