In literature:

While doughnuts are usually round and have a hole in the center, they may, for variety, be made in other shapes.

But Miss Ellenborough came to our rescue with some lovely doughnuts made in the shape of a true lovers' knot.

Astronomers' observations set constraints on size and characteristics of the doughnut-shaped rings surrounding supermassive black holes.
She cut a piece of foam core in a doughnut shape for the base, wrapped it with burlap and hot-glued the Indian corn to the foam.
It is just a question of time until someone figures out that a doughnut has the same shape as a target.

In science:

On the other hand, the elements of the genuine group Diff (M) of active diffeomorphisms are smooth homeomorphisms φ : M → M that can literally take each point p of M into some other point q := φ(p) of M and thereby deform, for example, a doughnut shaped manifold into its coffee-mug shaped copy (Nakahara 1990, 54).

This is the constraint indicated by the thick yellow doughnut-shaped region labelled ∆md in Fig. 5.

Combined with the loose information on |Vtd | coming from ∆md alone, this constrains (ρ, η) to the orange doughnut-shaped region labelled ∆ms and ∆md in Fig. 5.) Since |Vub |2 ∝ ρ2 + η2 , measurements of |Vub | also serve to constrain ρ and η .

The length of the side opposite to β , |VudVub | ∼= |Vub |, is constrained by the “|Vub /Vcb |” doughnut-shaped region in Fig. 5.
Summary of the 2003 Moriond Workshop on Electroweak Interactions and Unified Theories
The length of the remaining side, |VtdVtb | ∼= |Vtd |, is constrained by the “∆ms & ∆md” doughnut-shaped region.
Summary of the 2003 Moriond Workshop on Electroweak Interactions and Unified Theories
As we see from Fig. 5, one of the possible values of β corresponding to Eq. (14), ∼ 24◦ , is beautifully consistent with the range required by the intersection of the |Vub/Vcd | and ∆ms & ∆md doughnut-shaped regions.
