**Rotation around a fixed axis**— Rotational motion can occur around more than one axis at once, and can involve phenomena such as wobbling and precession. Rotation around a fixed axis is a special case of rotational motion, which does not involve those phenomena. The kinematics… …36

**Ryll-Nardzewski fixed point theorem**— In functional analysis, the Ryll Nardzewski fixed point theorem states that if E is a normed vector space and K is a nonempty convex subset of E which is compact under the weak topology, then every group (or equivalently: every semigroup) of… …37

**Liquid measure**— Liquid Liq uid, n. 1. A substance whose parts change their relative position on the slightest pressure, and therefore retain no definite form; any substance in the state of liquidity; a fluid that is not gaseous and has a definite volume… …38
