Discrete geometry

This article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by fixing it.

Discrete geometry or combinatorial geometry may be loosely defined as study of geometrical objects and properties that are discrete or combinatorial, either by their nature or by their representation; the study that does not essentially rely on the notion of continuity.

Parts of its domain of research is often attributed to other kinds of geometry: digital geometry, computational geometry. It also overlaps with convex geometry and combinatorial topology.
