Do you know the Complex Plane?
Quaternions aren't such a pain!
Do you sing soliloquies
Concerning Reimann Geometries
Of balancing your Tensors,
Spinors and Complex Vectors?
Phase Spaces! Hilbert Spaces!
Oh, so many, many wacky places!



This is an open-ended thread dedicated to the discussion of various spaces used by physicists and mathematicians.

Do you mean that we should discuss different states of matter, that are described by physicists and mathematicians? Or do you mean different concepts of space itself, altogether?

I mean different spaces. The real number line (denoted R) is a space. The complex plane (C) and the Euclidean plane (R^2) are other common examples of spaces.
