  Topology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Topology (Greek topos, place and logos, study) is a branch of mathematics concerned with the study of topological spaces.
Topology is concerned with the study of the so-called topological properties of figures, that is to say, properties that do not change under bicontinuous one-to-one transformations (called homeomorphisms).
In pointless topology one considers instead the lattice of open sets as the basic notion of the theory, while Grothendieck topologies are certain structures defined on arbitrary categories which allow the definition of sheaves on those categories, and with that the definition of quite general cohomology theories.

Topology (Greek topos = place and logos = word) is a branch of mathematics concerned with the study of topological spaces.
The term "topologie" was introduced in German in 1847 by Johann Benedict Listing (1808-1882) in "Vorstudien zur Topologie," Vandenhoeck und Ruprecht, Göttingen, pp.
"Topology", its English form, was introduced in print by Solomon Lefschetz in 1930 to replace the earlier name "analysis situs." The separate status of the topologist, a specialist in topology, was probably established from around 1920.

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.
In topology, a number, polynomial, or other quantity associated to a topological object such as a knot or 3-manifold which depends only on the underlying object and not on its specific description or presentation.

 Definition: network topology
Note 1: Two networks have the same topology if the connection configuration is the same, although the networks may differ in physical interconnections, distances between nodes, transmission rates, and/or signal types.
star topology: A network topology in which peripheral nodes are connected to a central node, which rebroadcasts all transmissions received from any peripheral node to all peripheral nodes on the network, including the originating node.
tree topology: A network topology that, from a purely topologic viewpoint, resembles an interconnection of star networks in that individual peripheral nodes are required to transmit to and receive from one other node only, toward a central node, and are not required to act as repeaters or regenerators.
