(1)   The configuration of a communication network
(2)   The branch of pure mathematics that deals only with the properties of a figure X that hold for every figure into which X can be transformed with a one-to-one correspondence that is continuous in both directions
(3)   The study of anatomy based on regions or divisions of the body and emphasizing the relations between various structures (muscles and nerves and arteries etc.) in that region
(4)   Topographic study of a given place (especially the history of place as indicated by its topography)

  1. A branch of mathematics studying those properties of a geometric figure or solid that are not changed by stretching, bending and similar homeomorphisms.
  2. A collection T of subsets of a set X such that the empty set is an element of T, X itself is an element of T, the union of any collection of elements of T is an element of T, and the intersection of any finite collection of elements of T is an element of T.
  3. The anatomical structure of part of the body.
  4. The arrangement of nodes in a communications network.
  5. The properties of a particular technological embodiment that are not affected by differences in the physical layout or form of its application.
