r"""Uses samples obtained by a measurement operator to return the
expectation value of the operator.
In case samples were obtained for multiple modes, it is assumed that the
same measurement operator was used for each mode.
**Using PNR samples to obtain number expectation**
If applied to a single mode, this simply corresponds to mean photon number
:math:`\langle n_i\rangle`.
For multiple modes, the expectation value of the tensor product of number
operator, :math:`\langle n_{i_0} \otimes n_{i_1} \otimes \cdots \otimes
n_{i_m}\rangle` is returned.
**Example:**
>>> samples = np.array([[2, 0], [2, 2], [2, 0], [0, 0]])
>>> samples_expectation(samples)

**Using homodyne samples to obtain expectation of the quadrature operators**
Assuming that samples were obtained after measuring either the \hat{x} or
\hat{p} operator.
If applied to a single mode, this simply corresponds to the expectation
value of the given quadrature operator. For example for samples obtained by
measuring in the position basis, for a single mode we have :math:`\langle
\hat{x}_i\rangle`,
For multiple modes, the expectation value of the tensor product of the
momentum operator is obtained: :math:`\langle \hat{x}_{i_0} \otimes
\hat{x}_{i_1} \otimes \cdots \otimes \hat{x}_{i_m}\rangle`.
**Example:**
>>> samples = np.array([[1.23, 0], [12.32, 0.32], [0.3222, 6.34], [0, 3.543]])
>>> samples_expectation(samples)

In case samples were obtained for multiple modes, it is assumed that the

**Using PNR samples to obtain variance of the number operator**
If applied to a single mode, this simply corresponds to mean photon number
:math:`Var[ n_i ]`.
For multiple modes, the expectation value of the tensor product of number
operator, :math:`Var[ n_{i_0} \otimes n_{i_1} \otimes \cdots \otimes
n_{i_m} ]` is returned.

Measured modes that are not specified are traced over. If either all
the modes or no modes were specified, the marginal probabilities are

The Fock basis cutoff truncation is determined by the maximum Fock state

2 out of 4 shots had the ``(2, 0)`` outcome, that is
:math:`|\braketD{2,0}{\psi}|^2=0.5`. We can check if the probability for
this state is correct by indexing into ``probs``:
>>> probs[(2, 0)]
