In this paper we develop some combinatorial models for continuous spaces. In this spirit we study the approximations of continuous spaces by graphs, molecular spaces and coordinate matrices. We define the dimension on a discrete space by means of axioms, and the axioms are based on an obvious geometrical background. This work presents some discrete models… (More)
A digital approach to geometry and topology plays an important role in analyzing n-dimensional digitized images arising in computer graphics as well as in many areas of science including neuroscience, medical imaging, industrial inspection, geoscience and fluid dynamics. Concepts and results of the digital approach are used to specify and justify some… (More)
In this paper we investigate properties of digital spaces which are represented by graphs. We find conditions for digital spaces to be digital n-manifolds and n-spheres. We study properties of partitions of digital spaces and prove a digital analog of the Jordan-Brouwer theorem for the normal digital n-space Z n .
This paper studies the structure of a parabolic partial differential equation on graphs and digital n-dimensional manifolds, which are digital models of continuous n-manifolds. Conditions for the existence of solutions of equations are determined and investigated. Numerical solutions of the equation on a Klein bottle, a projective plane, a 4D sphere and a… (More)
This paper proposes a new cubical space model for the representation of continuous objects and surfaces in the n-dimensional Euclidean space by discrete sets of points. The cubical space model concerns the process of converting a continuous object in its digital counterpart, which is a graph, enabling us to apply notions and operations used in digital… (More)
A point of a digital space is called simple if it can be deleted from the space without altering topology. This paper introduces the notion simple set of points of a digital space. The definition is based on contractible spaces and contractible transformations. A set of points in a digital space is called simple if it can be contracted to a point without… (More)
