Starting from Newton, the main equations of physics are differential equations — which implicitly implies that all the corresponding processes are differentiable — and thus, continuous. However, in practice, we often encounter processes or objects that change abruptly in time or in space. In physics, we have phase transitions when the properties change abruptly. In geosciences, we have sharp boundaries between different layers and discontinuing representing faults. In many such situations, it… Expand
