In science:

Results for the cover time of specific graphs vary from the optimal cover time of Θ(n log n) associated with the complete graph Kn to the worst case of Θ(n3 ) associated with the lollipop graph [19, 18].
Many Random Walks Are Faster Than One
Results vary from the optimal CG of complete graphs Θ(n log n) (where n is the number of vertices) to the worst case found in the lollipop graph Θ(n3 ) .
Performance of Random Walks in One-Hop Replication Networks
With these general theorems it is easy to prove upper bounds for expanders, complete graphs, torus graphs, hypercubes, k -ary trees and lollipop graphs.
The Cover Time of Deterministic Random Walks
The last theorem about the lollipop graph (a graph that consists of a clique with n/2 vertices connected to a path of length n/2) might look weak, but turns out to be tight as we will show in Theorem 4.4.
The Cover Time of Deterministic Random Walks
Results for the cover time of specific graphs vary from optimal cover time of Θ(n log n) associated with the complete graph, to the worse case of Θ(n3 ) associated with the lollipop graph.
Enhanced Random Walk with Choice: An Empirical Study
Other cases that have been studied are the d-dimensional grid, the hypercube, lollipop graphs and Erd ˝os-R ´enyi random graphs above the threshold for connectedness.
Mixing times for the interchange process
He considered the interchange process on lollipop graphs with Θ(n) vertices in the clique as well as in the handle and proved that τmix = Θ(n4 log n).
Mixing times for the interchange process
This tau lepton travels through the detector, but decays before leaving the effective volume, thus producing a second shower, or “bang ” (see figure 1). A second event topology unique to tau neutrinos is the “lollipop ” event.
High-Energy Neutrino Astronomy: Opportunities For Particle Physics
In this picture, the tau track is the stick of the lollipop and the decay shower the candy.
High-Energy Neutrino Astronomy: Opportunities For Particle Physics
Topologies induced by tau neutrinos: inverted-lollipop and lollipop with a shower followed by a track or a track followed by a shower (hardly distinguishable from a νµ CC interaction and a muon, even if µ and τ energy losses are different); double-bang (described in the text).
Rapporteur Summary of Sessions HE 2.2-2.4 and OG 2.5-2.7
Muon production of high energy electrons and positrons may be a background to searches for taus via “lollipop” events .
High energy leptons from muons in transit
To convert to lollipop events, one needs to multiply the tau flux by the decay probability.
High energy leptons from muons in transit
The energy threshold for “lollipop” events from tau decays in IceCube is ∼ 5 PeV. A 5 PeV tau will produce > 200 m track length in the detector .
