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:

    The fundamental laws of physics do not describe true facts about reality. Rendered as descriptions of facts, they are false; amended to be true, they lose their explanatory force.
    Nancy Cartwright (b. 1945)

    Mathematics alone make us feel the limits of our intelligence. For we can always suppose in the case of an experiment that it is inexplicable because we don’t happen to have all the data. In mathematics we have all the data ... and yet we don’t understand. We always come back to the contemplation of our human wretchedness. What force is in relation to our will, the impenetrable opacity of mathematics is in relation to our intelligence.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)
