Freebase

  1. Boundary

    In topology and mathematics in general, the boundary of a subset S of a topological space X is the set of points which can be approached both from S and from the outside of S. More precisely, it is the set of points in the closure of S, not belonging to the interior of S. An element of the boundary of S is called a boundary point of S. Notations used for boundary of a set S include bd, fr, and ∂S. Some authors use the term frontier, instead of boundary in an attempt to avoid confusion with the concept of boundary used in algebraic topology and manifold theory. However, frontier sometimes refers to a different set, which is the set of boundary points which are not actually in the set; that is, S \ S. A connected component of the boundary of S is called a boundary component of S.

Examples of boundary in a Sentence

    Think of a cold front that forms when a very cold air mass comes down to the U.S. from Canada, here we find a very hot plasma mass coming outward from the sun that encounters the cold plasma in the interstellar medium. It does not surprise me that a sharp boundary forms.

We are continuously still learning about this environment.

    The reason this find is important is we don't actually know how our solar system was formed, there really is a mystery out there, we have a poor understanding of it because we keep finding new objects like this, and if we don't understand how our solar system formed, we don't know the ingredients that are required to make an earth. And the ultimate question -- what is the boundary of our solar system ?
