A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question.

Type to find tags:

A method of obtaining (numerically) approximate solutions to (usually) differential equations. It consists of a method of discretization splitting the domain into disjoint subdomains over each of whic…

a generalization of a sequence where a directed set is used as the index set instead of positive integers. Convergence of nets can be defined in a similar way as convergence of sequences. …

categories with three distinguished classes of morphisms: the weak equivalences, the fibrations and the cofibrations. They provide a natural setting for [tag:homotopy-theory] in a…

properties of topological space which, roughly speaking, say in what way two points, a point and a closed set, or two closed sets can be "separated".

The study of relations between, one the one hand, the topology of a smooth manifold as encoded in the cohomology groups, and on the other, the set of solutions to the Laplace operator on differential …

In number theory, a multiplicative function is a function defined on positive integers such that f(ab)=f(a)f(b) for a,b coprime. E.g. Euler's totient function, sum of divisors and number of divisor…

Question on minimal surfaces, or surfaces that have zero mean curvature.

The splitting field of a polynomial with coefficients in a field, F, is the smallest field extension to F such that the polynomial decomposes into linear factors. Often used with Galois-theory tag.

A groupoid (in the sense of category theory) is a small category in which every morphism is an isomorphism. Groupoids arise throughout mathematics, e.g. in guise of fundamental groupoids in the theory…
