Topology is used in local area networks. It is the physical picture of how the wires or cables are laid out. The logical topology describes how the messages flow.
The layout of a computer network.
The "layout" of all the computers on a network and the links that join them.
A description of any kind of locality in terms of its physical layout. In the context of communication networks, a topology describes pictorially the configuration or arrangement of a network, including its nodes and connecting communication lines.
the branch of pure mathematics that deals only with the properties of a figure X that hold for every figure into which X can be transformed with a one-to-one correspondence that is continuous in both directions
The set of properties of geometic forms (such as connectivity, neighbourhood) which is defined with the data model remaining invariant when subject to a continuous transformation. The level of topology chosen for the ENC allows for colour fill, activation of area warnings, e.g. depth area warnings, cautionary areas. The different levels of topology are described in the S-57 Data Model.
the study of surfaces; the study of properties which do not change under certain transformations
branch of geometrical mathematics concerned with order, contiguity, and relative position, rather than actual linear dimensions.
classification of shapes into groups that can be deformed into one another without ripping or tearing their structure in any way.
The study of the deformability of intact structures.
topographic study of a given place (especially the history of place as indicated by its topography); "Greenland's topology has been shaped by the glaciers of the ice age"
the study of anatomy based on regions or divisions of the body and emphasizing the relations between various structures (muscles and nerves and arteries etc.) in that region
