  'Manifold: Time' Starts SF Trilogy with Apocalyptic Bang
In the first three pages of Manifold: Time, Stephen Baxter takes us from the colonization of the solar system to the heat death of the universe.
Manifold: Time is ostensibly the story of Reid Malenfant, a one-time astronaut candidate who washed out and made his fortune in business instead.
Cruithne is just the beginning of a journey that will lead to the birth of a new species and take Malenfant through a dizzying array of times and universes.

  ManifoldĀ® System Release 5.00 - Professional Version - Features
Manifold’s reasoning for this is the price of hard drive space has come down in recent years that we can afford to store larger map files since everyone has larger hard drives now.
Manifold allows users to georeference images with tools that use control points to re-scale, reposition and warp an image to match a known good drawing or image.
Manifold suggests users spend at least a day to read the introduction and perform the exercises, I would recommend being prepared to spend a lot more time than that to become fully familiar with all the functionality.

  PlanetMath: manifold
A differential manifold is a topological manifold with some additional structure information.
The topological hypotheses in the definition of a manifold are needed to exclude certain counter-intuitive pathologies.

  Manifold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Manifolds are important objects in mathematics and physics because they allow more complicated structures to be expressed and understood in terms of the relatively well-understood properties of simpler spaces.
Manifolds need not be connected (all in "one piece"); thus a pair of separate circles is also a manifold.
A finite cylinder is a manifold with boundary.

 Differentiable manifold - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An alternate definition of a differentiable manifold is a topological space with a sheaf of functions, which is locally isomorphic to Euclidean space with the sheaf of differentiable functions.
A pseudo-Riemannian manifold is a variant of Riemannian manifold where the metric tensor is allowed to have an indefinite signature (as opposed to a positive-definite one).
A symplectic manifold is a manifold equipped with a closed, nondegenerate 2-form.

 Manifold Summary
Manifolds are important objects in mathematics and physics because they allow more complicated structures to be expressed and understood in terms of the relatively well-understood properties of simpler spaces.
Manifolds need not be connected (all in "one piece"); thus a pair of separate circles is also a manifold.
Differentiable manifolds have homeomorphisms on overlapping neighborhoods diffeomorphic with each other, so that the manifold has a well-defined set of functions which are differentiable in each neighborhood, and so differentiable on the manifold as a whole.

Given a vector space of functions of a parameter or functions on a manifold, an operator may have a kernel or matrix whose rows and columns are indexed by the parameter or by points on the manifold.
Orbifolds are manifolds with singularities such as reflection surfaces, where they resemble manifolds with boundary, and cone lines, where they are modelled (in the direction perpendicular to the cone line) by a cone with an angle of 360/n degrees for some n.
PL flow A "piecewise linear" motion on a space or a manifold, akin to a flow given by a vector field, in which every particle in a given simplex of some triangulation moves with constant velocity and in the same direction, so that the particle trajectories are polygons.

Manifold: Time's would-be asteroid-miner-in-chief is bootstrap space entrepreneur Reid Malenfant, a media-savvy firebrand who's showed those crotchety NASA folks what's what with his ready-to-fly Big Dumb Booster, piloted by a genetically enhanced super-squid.
In this first volume in his Manifold trilogy, he combines both types of story, beginning with what appears to be the straightforward tale of Reid Malenfant, a millionaire industrialist who tries to circumvent a near-moribund NASA and start his own on-the-cheap space program.
Manifold Time is book one in a trilogy about what happens to the world when people discover that the end is in sight.

 Intake Manifold Comments
This manifold type is typically a lower, lighter, and simpler casting, cheaper to make, and giving better hood clearance, as the runners leading from the carburetor to the intake ports are all at the same height.
This manifold type is typically a heavy and complex casting, as the runners leading from the carburetor to the intake ports of adjoining cylinder pairs are at different heights.
If the intake manifold is very small (“IR” type, with minimal internal volume), the effect of a change in combustion chamber volume will be much greater than if a tunnel ram manifold is used (where the plenum volume is typically larger than the cylinder volume).

 The center manifold theorem
The formal Taylor series of the center manifold is usually not convergent, but in many cases the Taylor series for the bifurcating solutions do converge (assuming of course, that the nonlinear terms f and g have convergent Taylor expansions).
If the center manifold is not unique, this means, of course, that they must lie on every center manifold.
A proof of the center manifold theorem is well beyond the scope of this course.

 Manifold
Manifold is a coordination language for orchestration of the communications among independent, cooperating processes in a massively parallel or distributed application.
Manifold has been successfully used in a number of real applications in areas such as numerical computing, constraint satisfaction, distributed genetic algorithms, and computational fluid dynamics.
Manifold is currently being used by the software company Adaptive Planet as an integral part of their Designer product: an environment for development and deployment of component based systems on local, distributed, as well as mobile platforms.

 Intake Manifold - Partstrain.com
An intake manifold is a system of passages that carry out the fuel/air mixture from the carburetor to the intake valves of the engine.
The L-head engine’s manifold is mounted to the side of the block and the I-head manifold is mounted to the cylinder head.
Manifolds in modern engines are designed like this so that the amount of fuel condensing on the intake manifold walls is reduced to a minimum.

 Copper Manifold in a Rectangular Cooler
Then you run the tubing the length of the cooler along the side, bend it in a U back to the other end down the middle, another U takes it back to the far end along the other side.
Put the sparge manifold into the cooler (with the stopper blocking the drain hole, if you've made that version).
I find that running the water in through the manifold gives me more even temperature distribution (i.e., better mixing) than pouring it in the top.

 Programming Manifold
In addition, although Manifold System is itself coded entirely in Microsoft Visual C++, many applications developers prefer to work with Microsoft's Visual Basic languages for customization of applications.
Manifold provides a large "starter set" of fun controls like calendars, toolbars and other useful items.
Although Manifold scripts may be written in VBScript or JScript (or even PERL or Python) all of the documentation examples and other support resources from Manifold are based on VBScript.

 Manifold Theory: (W)holes and Boundaries
Perhaps not coincidentally, it is precisely these manifolds that arise in the new physics of conformal field theory, superstring theory and quantum gravity.
In quantum gravity, we may expect that a similar representation will hold, except that the two-dimensional manifold with boundary will be replaced by a multidimensional one.
Unfortunately, multidimensionality goes against the grain of conventional linear mathematical thought, and despite a recent broadening of attitudes (notably associated with the study of multidimensional nonlinear phenomena in chaos theory), the theory of multidimensional manifolds with boundary remains somewhat underdeveloped.

The way Todd Alexander's voice is often lost under Manifold's big sound adds to the CD's melancholy atmosphere, and though the lyrics are sometimes difficult to make out, their plaintiveness evokes the regret and longing frequently felt upon departure.
