In science:

They use cubic graph to generate the Belyi surfaces and endow the set surfaces with probability measure inherit from random cubic graphs.
The length of closed geodesics on random Riemann Surfaces
To work with the set of surfaces generated from random cubic graphs with n vertices, we will need a probability measure for the set of such graphs.
The length of closed geodesics on random Riemann Surfaces
We will endow the set of oriented cubic graphs with a probability measure by picking a graph using the con figuration model and then flipping an unbi ased coin at each vertex to pick an orientation.
The length of closed geodesics on random Riemann Surfaces

At this stage one could implement L¨uscher’s formula for measuring phase shifts in a cubical periodic box .
Nuclear Lattice Simulations with EFT
Qiu and Xia (1998a,b) extended these measurements to convection in cubic cells, finding the same scaling exponents as in the cylindrical case.
Large scale dynamics in turbulent Rayleigh-Benard convection
This way the CZ on the upper two rails together with the two homodyne detections can be interpreted as a collective, homodyne-based CV two-mode Bell measurement on an input state |ψi and one half of a nonGaussian resource state which is the cubic phase state coupled to a momentum-squeezed state through a CV CZ gate.
Optical hybrid approaches to quantum information
As a result, only the cubic gate can realized using cubic resources and Gaussian measurements and corrections; a quartic gate requires linear measurements, but cubic corrections which, of course, may also be implemented using cubic offline resources.
Optical hybrid approaches to quantum information
An additional nonlinear measurement such as photon counting is needed in order to be able to realize gates of cubic or higher order.
Optical hybrid approaches to quantum information
The resource state remains Gaussian, the measurements are CV homodyne detections and DV photon number measurements to teleport the cubic phase state into the middle rail.
Optical hybrid approaches to quantum information
The initial cubic phase state depends on the measurement outcome n and extra squeezing corrections S are needed to obtain a cubic gate of any desired strength κ.
Optical hybrid approaches to quantum information
As the desired cubic gate is nonGaussian, the order of the measurements matters and the number measurement has to be done first.
Optical hybrid approaches to quantum information
Thus a general model of this type can have eight soft breaking scalar masses, though specific models may have fewer parameters. (In addition there are, of course, gaugino masses and cubic and quadratic soft breaking parameters.) The δi measure the amount non-universality in the scalar soft breaking masses.
