Topology Resources

Topology is a mathematical study of geometric properties with several different branches such as algebraic and differential topology. Perhaps the first person to bring attention to the beginnings of topology was Euler. In 1736, Leonhard Euler published a paper relating the discovery of a different type of geometry where distance wasn’t relevant.

In addition to its purely mathematical beginnings, topology now refers to the layout of connected devices or the physical interconnection of various elements in computer networking. This can refer to various elements within a computer network such as links, nodes, or anything that makes up the virtural shape of the network. Network Topologies can be either physical or logical or both. For example, A Local Area Network (LAN) is an example of a network that is both physical and logical.
