Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a computer science guy. I was searching the definition of 'Field' in the context of 'Markov Random Field' for my project work. I found mathematical ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_theory_(mathematics [Broken]) ) and physics ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_(physics [Broken]) )definition of field. Though I am certain that physics definition is the correct one in the context of Markov Random Field. But somehow I find something related between these two definitions by searching over internet. I'm confused. Kindly clarify these things to me.

Thanks,
