• Dense-in-itself — In mathematics, a subset A of a topological space is said to be dense in itself if A contains no isolated points. Every dense in itself closed set is perfect. Conversely, every perfect set is dense in itself. A simple example of a set which is… …   Wikipedia

• Dense set — In topology and related areas of mathematics, a subset A of a topological space X is called dense (in X) if any point x in X belongs to A or is a limit point of A.[1] Informally, for every point in X, the point is either in A or arbitrarily close …   Wikipedia

• Dense order — In mathematics, a partial order ≤ on a set X is said to be dense if, for all x and y in X for which x < y, there is a z in X such that x < z < y. The rational numbers with the ordinary ordering are a densely ordered set in this sense, as …   Wikipedia

• Dense heterarchy — Hierarchical organization in social insect colonies can be thought of as a dense heterarchy in which the higher levels affect the lower levels and lower levels eventually influence the higher levels. Individual ants within the colony network are… …   Wikipedia

• Nowhere dense set — A subset A of a topological space X is nowhere dense in X if and only if the interior of the closure of A is empty. The order of operations is important. For example, the set of rational numbers, as a subset of R has the property that the closure …   Wikipedia
