In mathematics, the term dense has at least two different meanings.

Note that the first notion of "dense" depends on the surrounding space, while the second notion is completely internal to the ordered set. The rationals in [0,1] for instance are dense as an ordered set and they are dense in the space [0,1] but they are not dense in the real numbers.
