Boundary - Mathematics and Physics

Mathematics and Physics

  • Boundary (topology), the closure minus the interior of a subset of a topological space; an edge in the topology of manifolds, as in the case of a 'manifold with boundary'
  • Boundary value problem, a differential equation together with a set of additional restraints called the boundary conditions
  • Boundary (thermodynamic), the edge of a thermodynamic system across which heat, mass, or work can flow

Famous quotes containing the words physics and/or mathematics:

    But this invites the occult mind,
    Cancels our physics with a sneer,
    And spatters all we knew of denouement
    Across the expedient and wicked stones.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Why does man freeze to death trying to reach the North Pole? Why does man drive himself to suffer the steam and heat of the Amazon? Why does he stagger his mind with the mathematics of the sky? Once the question mark has arisen in the human brain the answer must be found, if it takes a hundred years. A thousand years.
    Walter Reisch (1903–1963)
