A noun is a type of word the meaning of which determines reality. Nouns provide the names for all things: people, objects, sensations, feelings, etc.
WHAT DOES FOLIATION MEAN IN ENGLISH?
In mathematics, a foliation is a geometric device used to study manifolds, consisting of an integrable subbundle of the tangent bundle. A foliation looks locally like a decomposition of the manifold as a union of parallel submanifolds of smaller dimension.
The first definition of foliation in the dictionary is the process of producing leaves. Other definition of foliation is the state of being in leaf.Foliation is also the arrangement of leaves in a leaf bud; vernation.
