Re: Topology
Topology comes from the greek words "tÚpos" (place) and "logos", (study).

This term has different meanings according to the subject it refers to:

1) In general, the topology studies the morphology of a scenery.

2) It also represents studies the position of words in a sentence.

3) In math, it studies of those properties of geometrical entities, which doesn't change if you apply to them a continuous deformation.

Geometry also comes from the greek words "Ge" (Earth) and "metrža" (Measure). It studies the gemoetrica forms and their properties.
