Their approaches were quite different, and Biruni's is more geodesically fundamental, but Eratosthenes (who, to be fair to the theme of middleeastern contributions, was born in Libya and lived in Alexandria) got there first.

The smallest such d is called the diameter of the universe, and the universe will have a definable "volume" or "scale" "¦ A compact space is a stronger condition: in the context of Riemannian manifolds, it is equivalent to bounded and geodesically complete" ¦ If the spatial geometry is spherical, the topology is compact.

Classical concepts of orderconvex sets (Birkhoff) and of geodesically convex sets (Menger) are directly inspired by intuition; they go back to the first half of this century.

For example, Geroch (1968) demonstrates that a spacetime can be geodesically complete and yet possess an incomplete timelike path of bounded total acceleration ” that is to say, an inextendible path in spacetime traversable by a rocket with a finite amount of fuel, along which an observer could experience only a finite amount of proper time.

The deletion of the points p1p4 means that the DeutschPolitzer spacetime is singular in the sense that it is geodesically incomplete. [
