In science:

The jackets (further studied in [35, 41]) are ribbon graphs, completely classified by their genus gJ .
A generalization of the Virasoro algebra to arbitrary dimensions
The degree ω(G ) of a graph is the sum of genera of its jackets, ω(G ) = PJ gJ .
A generalization of the Virasoro algebra to arbitrary dimensions
If the degree vanishes (i.e. al l jackets of G are planar) then G is dual to a D-sphere.
A generalization of the Virasoro algebra to arbitrary dimensions
Every jacket J bD (ρ) is obtained as subgraph of exactly D distinct jackets J (corresponding to inserting the color D anywhere in the cycle associated to J bD (ρ) ).
A generalization of the Virasoro algebra to arbitrary dimensions
It is evident that J and G have the same connectivity. A given jacket is independent of the overall orientation of the cycle, meaning that the jackets are in one-to-two correspondence with (D + 1)-cycles.
