Developed by the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, this term represents a state in which one is engaged in a goal-regulated, meaningful activity and is so completely absorbed in the process that one loses all sense of time. Flow is considered a positive, productive, and desirable state.^ to top
Theorized by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, "flow" is a "condition where self-consciousness disappears, perceptions of time become distorted, and concentration becomes so intense that the game or task at hand copletely absorbs us" (Douglas and Hargadon 204). A mental state of enjoyment shared by people in a variety of activities, e.g., rock-climbing, chess-playing, and composing music (Juu; 139).

A topological manifold is a locally Euclidean Hausdorff space.

GaBi manages flows (substances, materials) in a tree structure referred to as the flow group hierarch. In the GaBi system, flows carry basic information for different types of balances (e.g. mass, energy, active, economic balances, etc.) and are used by GaBi processes as inputs or outputs. Flows are used in GaBi process plans to connect consecutive unit processes. In GaBi balances, information can be viewed to a maximum depth of detail at the flow (input/output) level.

In mathematics, a flow formalizes, in mathematical terms, the general idea of "a variable that depends on time" that occurs very frequently in engineering, physics and the study of ordinary differential equations. Informally, if x(t) is some coordinate of some system that behaves continuously as a function of t, then x(t) is a flow. More formally, a flow is the group action of a one-parameter group on a set.
