# Vertices are points where particles *collide* and *interact*.

# What is a vertex?

‘Mathematics and computer science[edit]

- Vertex (computer graphics), a point in space with additional attributes
- Vertex (curve), a local extreme point of curvature
- Vertex (geometry), a point where higher-dimensional geometric objects meet
- Vertex (graph theory), a node in a graph
- Vertex (topography), a data point in certain geographic information systems
- Vertex of a representation, a certain type of subgroup in finite group theory

## Physics[edit]

- Vertex (physics), a point where particles collide and interact
- Vertex function, describing the interaction between a photon and an electron
- Vertex model in statistical mechanics, a discrete model of a physical system in which weights are associated with vertices of a grid graph
- Vertex operator algebra in conformal field theory’

Let’s converse?
