In architecture, city planning, visual arts, and other design areas, shapes are often made with points, or with structural representations based on point-sets. Shapes made with points can be understood more generally as finite arrangements formed with elements (i.e. points) of the algebra of shapes Ui, for i = 0. This paper examines the kind of topology that is applicable to such shapes. From a mathematical standpoint, any “shape made with points” is equivalent to a finite space, so that…

Structure from appearance: topology with shapes, without points
ABSTRACT A new methodological approach for the study of topology for shapes made of arrangements of lines, planes or solids is presented. Topologies for shapes are traditionally built on the
Finite Topology on Shapes without Points
This paper develops finite topology on shapes formed with elements of the algebras $U_i$, for $i$ > 0. In traditional branches of topology, "shapes" are considered as abstract/immaterial objects, as
Analysis of shape grammars: Continuity of rules
TLDR
A characterization is provided that distinguishes the suitable mapping forms from those that are inherently discontinuous or practically inconsequential for continuity analysis, and it is shown that certain intrinsic properties of shape topologies and continuous mappings provide an effective method of computing topologies algorithmically.

Spatial Relations and Grammars
TLDR
This new formalism allows for designs to be formed from sets of labelled shapes which are constructed by recursively adding elements to or subtracting elements from sets according to given spatial relations.
The structures of molecular topological spaces
The concepts of general topology are employed to derive a mathematical description of the structures of molecules. It is shown that a topological space on a finite set of points induces a unique

On the computer enumeration of finite topologies
TLDR
The problem of enumerating the number of topologies which can be formed from a finite point set is considered both theoretically and computationally, leading to an algorithm for enumerating finite topologies, and computed results are given for n N 7.
Counting finite posets and topologies
A refinement of an algorithm developed by Culberson and Rawlins yields the numbers of all partially ordered sets (posets) with n points and k antichains for n≤11 and all relevant integers k. Using

Shape: Talking about Seeing and Doing
TLDR
The book takes the idea of design as calculation from mere heuristic or metaphor to a rigorous relationship in which design and calculation each inform and enhance the other.
Point And Line To Plane
TLDR
The point and line to plane is universally compatible with any devices to read, allowing you to get the most less latency time to download any of the authors' books like this one.
