“Topology implies the existence of bottomology, and they both study holes”

Topology is concerned with the properties of a geometric object that are preserved under continuous deformations. There is no “bottomology,” but there are jokes.

“If you think of a topology for a set A as being a list of open sets on A, then a bottomology on A is the list of closed sets and a versology is the list of sets that are both closed and open” was posted on Twitter by Gray on December 17, 2019. “why is there topology but no bottomology or versology” was posted on Twitter by Fowwest on October 20, 2021.

Wikipedia: Topology
In mathematics, topology (from the Greek words τόπος, ‘place, location’, and λόγος, ‘study’ ) is concerned with the properties of a geometric object that are preserved under continuous deformations, such as stretching, twisting, crumpling, and bending; that is, without closing holes, opening holes, tearing, gluing, or passing through itself.

Normally to take topology, you have to have taken the prereq, bottomology. Let’s just say I placed out of that one.

But bottomology is a real field of science: the study of the bottom surface of earth; it’s just a purely theoretical discipline, since every attempt to send an expedition there failed.

UP Diliman is considering opening a ‘minor’ track for its students. For example, your degree is BA Political Science, and you are allowed by your curriculum to have a minor in another field of study, e.g. History. There will be rules on who can and what ‘minors’ one can take.

@luddyke
i think generally people take versology first then specialise but i dont think its unheard of to jump straight into topology or bottomology respectively, depends on your uni i think

So what’s the deal with topology? Is there a bottomology and a middlology too?

If you think of a topology for a set A as being a list of open sets on A, then a bottomology on A is the list of closed sets and a versology is the list of sets that are both closed and open

Well if topology is the study of surfaces, bottomology is the study of holes
