Concentric spheres center. Spheres with the same cone A solid in R3 , bounded by a region in a plane (the base) and the surface formed by straight lines (the generators) which join points of the boundary of the base to a fixed point (the vertex) not in the plane of the base. , at another point is sometimes also called a cone. A cone may be viewed as a quadratic surface, whose equation is Ax 2 + By 2 + Cz2 = 0 (A, B, C = 0). When A = B, it is a right circular cone (also called a cone of revolution); if A=B, it is an oblique circular cone.

The conical surface consists of two concave pieces positioned symmetrically about the vertex. It is quadric if the directrix is a conic. A circular conical surface is one whose directrix is a circle and whose vertex is on the line perpendicular to the plane of the circle and passing through the center of the circle. , (A11 ∨ · · · ∨ A1m1 ) ∧ · · · ∧ (An1 ∨ · · · ∨ Anmn ), where each Aij , 1 ≤ i ≤ n, 1 ≤ j ≤ mi , is either a sentence symbol or the negation of a sentence symbol. Every well-formed propositional formula is logically equivalent to one in conjunctive normal form.

If the expression consists of only a finite number of fractions, the expression is called a finite continued fraction and is (obviously) a rational number. See also finite continued fraction. An infinite simple continued fraction is one of the form a0 + 1 a1 + 1 a2 + 1 a3 + 1 .. where each of the ai is an integer. See also convergence of a continued fraction. continuous function A function f from a topological space X to a topological space Y such that, for each open U ⊆ Y , the set f −1 (U ) is open in X.
