A Continuum is a continuous series where all parts are very similar to their nearest neighbour, but the ends or extremes of it are different from each other.
This describes something that changes gradually (little by little) from one condition, to a different condition, but without any sudden changes or discontinuities.
The difference between a continuum, and something with very different changes that can be measured, is important for all continuum theories.
Continuum may also refer to:
- The space-time continuum
- Continuum (mathematics), the real line, or more generally any space, ordering, or cardinal that shares certain properties of the real line (e.g., "connectedness" or "size")
- Language continuum - a group of dialects, where the dialect of each area is understandable in neighboring areas, and these dialects may gradually 'slide' from one language to another related language, even though speakers of the different languages who live farther apart may have more difficulty understanding one another.
