‘Vertices’

Vertices are points where particles collide and interact.



What is a vertex?


Quoting here from Wikipedia. On Vertex: ‘(Latin: peak; plural vertices or vertexes) means the “top”, or the highest geometric point of something, usually a curved surface or line, or a point where any two geometric sides or edges meet regardless of elevation; as opposed to an apex which is frequently a highest angular point such as possessed by a triangle, pyramid, or cone.’
Mathematics and computer science[edit]

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’
