Homeomorphism
and a donut (torus In geometry, a torus (plural tori, colloquially donut) is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in threedimensional space about an axis that is coplanarity, coplanar with the circle. If the axis of revolution does not tou ...) illustrating that they are homeomorphic. But there need not be a continuous deformation for two spaces to be homeomorphic — only a continuous mapping with a continuous inverse function. In the mathematics, mathematical field of topology s, which have only one surface and one edge, are a kind of object studied in topology.
