to·pol·o·gy

 (tə-pŏl′ə-jē)
n. pl. to·pol·o·gies
1. Topographic study of a given place, especially the history of a region as indicated by its topography.
2. Medicine The anatomical structure of a specific area or part of the body.
3. Mathematics
a. The study of certain properties that do not change as geometric figures or spaces undergo continuous deformation. These properties include openness, nearness, connectedness, and continuity.
b. The underlying structure that gives rise to such properties for a given figure or space: The topology of a doughnut and a picture frame are equivalent.
4. Computers The arrangement in which the nodes of a network are connected to each other.

to·pol·o·gy

(tə-pŏl′ə-jē)
The mathematical study of the geometric properties that are not normally affected by changes in the size or shape of geometric figures. In topology, a donut and a coffee cup with a handle are equivalent shapes, because each has a single hole.

Built-in network model, real-time topological analysis, and integration to simulation packages allow new and innovative features like validation and simulation of all operations.
Due to this, in this second step, a topological analysis of the pruned network is performed in order to identify network's Hubs.
Yet, what also matters in bringing Agamben and Butler into this topological analysis of space is the dialogue that may be opened by juxtaposing their treatments of the camp.
Additionally, topological analysis of the GRNs revealed that all four networks exhibited the small-word property (28) and scales-free architecture (29) which are the well-known characteristics of most biological networks (Figure 1).
(2009) examined which type of relation between the words would present a scale-free distribution pattern in the topological analysis. Examining the acquisition of words by children aged 16 to 30 months, two networks were formed: (a) one from the common semantic attributes between the words (for example, having eyes and being hairy) and (b) another from the target-associate relation in the word association task.
