Who invented continuity?
Similarly, it is asked, who discovered continuity?
The formal definition and the distinction between pointwise continuity and uniform continuity were first given by Bolzano in the 1830s but the work wasn't published until the 1930s.
Subsequently, question is, what is the concept of continuity? Continuity, in mathematics, rigorous formulation of the intuitive concept of a function that varies with no abrupt breaks or jumps. Continuity of a function is sometimes expressed by saying that if the x-values are close together, then the y-values of the function will also be close.
Keeping this in view, who created continuity theory?
Robert Atchley is credited with the development of this theory. Continuity theory takes a life course perspective in which the aging process is shaped by history, culture, and social constructs.
What is an example of continuity theory?
Internal continuity connects you to your past. External continuity comes from the environment, physical and social, and includes the roles each of us is involved in and the jobs we perform. Friendships and phasing out of employment are examples of maintaining external continuity in older adulthood.
