In mathematics, topology (from the Greek τόπος, place, and λόγος, study) is concerned with the properties of space that are preserved under continuous deformations, such as stretching, crumpling and bending, but not tearing or gluing. This can be studied by considering a collection of subsets, called open sets, that satisfy certain properties, turning the given set into what is known as a topological space. Important topological properties include connectedness and compactness.

Using topology, you can figure out why a hole in a hole in a hole is just like a three-handled coffee cup.

Refers to the different types of network.

A topology can be different depending on the needs and wants of the user(s).

As soon as saw Karen I topologized her. She had good ratio between the maximum extension of her torso and the minimum. In fact it was so good I popped a boner.
