In science:

Thus, one should expect all spectra of the staggered Dirac operator, even if computed from gauge field configurations with nonzero topological charge, to be described by the RMT results for ν = 0.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
The basic operation a computer can perform is to produce a random variable U distributed uniformly in the interval [0, 1].
Random matrix theory over finite fields: a survey
NCOS theories have the usual rules for computing scattering amplitudes, except for the appearance of Moyal phases which depend on the ordering of the open string vertex operators [4, 5, 12], and are thus the source of non-commutativity.
IIA/B, Wound and Wrapped
The defining property of NCOS theories is the fact that scattering amplitudes are computed with the usual rules but including Moyal phases when two operators are interchanged.
