## disk (mathematics)Roughly speaking, the "filling" of a circle. A flat (two-dimensional) disk of radius r consists of all the points
that are at a distance
r (closed disk) or < r (open
disk) from a fixed point in the plane. More generally, an n-dimensional
disk of radius r is the set of all points at a distance
r (closed) or < r (open)
from a fixed point in Euclidean n-space. A disk is the two-dimensional
analog of a ball. ## Related category• TOPOLOGY | |||||
