# Who invented continuity?

**continuity theory**to explain the development of internal and external structures of

**continuity**. In 1999, Robert Atchley continued to strengthen his

**theory**in his book

**Continuity**and Adaptation in Aging: Creating Positive Experiences.

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.
