2. 5 Formulation of Discrete Problems

Furthermore the method of association of topological data and numerical values allows to store data on elements of the underlying cell complex. These numerical values can contain geometrical information such as coordinate as well as curvature information.

In order to perform operations on functions which are based on the construction shown in the former section, a framework of base operations has to be defined, with which all necessary calculations can be carried out.
