SOME MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTS IN GEOMETRY OF MASSES
The study of the distribution of geometrical points, loaded by some scalars plays an important role in various fields of science, of theoretical and practical character. Since such study was first applied and studied when mass had the role of played a scalar, the mass loaded point was named material point, and the discipline dealing with the arrangement of material points in space is called the geometric mass. In that discipline, in the general case under mass one should imply a scalar of arbitrary nature, which can be negative as well. For example, the discipline includes the study of distribution of magnetic or electrical masses, which can be positive and negative. This paper presents some concepts from the geometry of masses that play an important role, particularly in mechanics and physics.
