Then a differential with respect to x should be a <i>finite set of points</i>. The sum x + dx is simply the union of the spaces, which preserves the measure of x. To carry out x/dx, you form an equivalence relation R so that the members of x/R have the same measure and |x/dx| = |dx|, and then identify each of the members with an element of dx.Kate Candyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14525055415849205916noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-34102596961642899792011-07-16T08:35:56.530-07:002011-07-16T08:35:56.530-07:00I also see a connection to the boundary operator o...I also see a connection to the boundary operator on chains in algebraic topology:<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_%28algebraic_topology%29Per Persson (md2perpe)http://www.blogger.com/profile/15762511809361135623noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-46340674132104381522011-07-16T08:31:14.526-07:002011-07-16T08:31:14.526-07:00The d^2 = 0 is also the case of the exterior deriv...The d^2 = 0 is also the case of the exterior derivative for differential forms:<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_form#Exterior_differential_complexPer Persson (md2perpe)http://www.blogger.com/profile/15762511809361135623noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-2455594326138291812011-03-17T13:35:29.449-07:002011-03-17T13:35:29.449-07:00Snorri,
