  Boundary (topology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In topology, 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.
In discussing boundaries of manifolds or simplexes and their simplicial complexes, one often meets the assertion that the boundary of the boundary is always empty.
For example, the topological boundary of a closed disk viewed as a topological space is empty, while its boundary in the sense of manifolds is the circle surrounding the disk.

boundary of Manifold The boundary Bd M of a manifold M is the set of points of M that have boundary patches.
An early result in topology states that every closed 3-manifold (closed meaning that the manifold is finite and connected but has no boundary) has a Heegaard splitting and a resulting description in terms of a Heegaard diagram, which describes how the two handlebodies are glued together.

 WIND User's Guide - Boundary Conditions
The use of implicit boundary conditions with an implicit solver is known to improve the stability of the method and lead to faster convergence at the expense of greater computational effort and complexity.
boundary condition imposes a no-slip condition of the flow, a zero pressure gradient, and the appropriate heat transfer condition (adiabatic or constant temperature) at the zone boundary (wall surface).
boundary condition may be used for internal flows at boundaries where subsonic flow is leaving the computational domain, such as at the exit plane of an inlet, diffuser, or auxiliary flow duct.

 Storage and Topology in the Redesigned MAF/TIGER
A distinct advantage of using topology derives from the relationships that are maintained between the "topological primitives", i.e., nodes, edges, and faces.
Topology is utilized to a significant degree by many of the applications that comprise the Census Bureau's Geographic Support System.
Alternatively, if topology is used to organize spatial data, the coordinates for a section of road that also bounds geographic areas are only stored once, and the correction becomes more straightforward, although it is still subject to business rules that govern feature consistency.

 Understanding Topology and Shapefiles
Today, topology in GIS is generally defined as the spatial relationships between adjacent or neighboring features.
The typical digitizing procedure is to digitize all lines, build topology, and label polygons and then clean up slivers, dangles, and under- and overshoots and build topology again, repeating the clean and build phases as many times as necessary.
The first step in enforcing planar topology in a shapefile is to remove twisted or self-intersecting polygon rings and to ensure that the "inside" of the polygon is on the correct side of the polygon boundary.

 Computing Hierarchical Curve-Skeletons of 3D Objects
We place electrical point charges on the object's boundary, considering each boundary voxel to be a point charge (a boundary voxel is an object voxel which has a background neighbor).
The repulsive force at an interior object voxel due to a nearby point charge is defined as a force pushing the voxel away from the charge with a strength that is inverse proportional to the distance between the voxel and the charge, raised at a certain power m which we call "the field strength".
A disadvantage of boundary seeding based on the curvature is that it is affected even by small amounts of noise present on the object’s boundary.

 Manifold Summary
In dimension 2, there is a complete classification of the 'closed' manifolds, surfaces that have no boundary curves and that fit in a finite region.
The non-orientable compact 2-manifolds are the projective plane (a manifold formed from a flat circular paper by gluing opposite points on the boundary circle), the Klein bottle, which is obtained from the projective plane by attaching a handle, and surfaces formed from the projective plane by adding 2 handles, 3 handles, and so forth.
To fully understand the mathematics behind manifolds, it is necessary to know elementary concepts regarding sets and functions, and a working knowledge of calculus and topology would be helpful.

In contrast to 'projective' ways of representing and knowing, topology is a 'method of touch' or, to use the literary term, 'metonymy.' Topology is capable of describing the contingent circumstances of experience and often contrasts with our imagined pictures of experience, which use framing and thematization to leave out key details.
Topology stands for many things: a means of 'journaling' experience, a means of accounting for self-reference and recursion, and the calculus of George Spencer Brown, a one-symbol logic that improves on Boolean logic's either-or mandate.
The connection between inside and outside, violating rules of boundaries and transitive space, is the most important for architecture and the arts because of the 'inside-out' effect.

Topology from the Differentiable Viewpoint by John Milnor
Its richness in examples (in both the main text and the problems) exposes a beginner to the underlying mechanisms of geometry in algebraic topology; its choice and arrangement of topics strike a perfect balance between accesibility and substantiveness; its lively and motivating exposition makes a student reluctant to attend the often boring topology classes.
There are many really good textbooks on algebraic topology and each has its own merit: Bredon for his effort in explaining everything that can be dealt without using spectral equences, Fomenko and Novikov for their effort in unifying differential geometry and algebraic/differential topology.
