Natural selection shaped the human brain to be drawn toward aspects of nature that enhance our survival and reproduction, like verdant landscapes and docile creatures. There is no payoff to getting the warm fuzzies in the presence of rats, snakes, mosquitoes, cockroaches, herpes simplex and the rabies virus.

WHAT DOES SIMPLEX MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Simplex

In geometry, a simplex is a generalization of the notion of a triangle or tetrahedron to arbitrary dimensions. Specifically, a k-simplex is a k-dimensional polytope which is the convex hull of its k + 1 vertices. More formally, suppose the k + 1 points are affinely independent, which means are linearly independent. Then, the simplex determined by them is the set of points. For example, a 2-simplex is a triangle, a 3-simplex is a tetrahedron, and a 4-simplex is a 5-cell. A single point may be considered a 0-simplex, and a line segment may be considered a 1-simplex. A simplex may be defined as the smallest convex set containing the given vertices. A regular simplex is a simplex that is also a regular polytope. A regular n-simplex may be constructed from a regular -simplex by connecting a new vertex to all original vertices by the common edge length. In topology and combinatorics, it is common to “glue together” simplices to form a simplicial complex.

Definition of simplex in the English dictionary

The definition of simplex in the dictionary is a simple not a compound word. Other definition of simplex is the most elementary geometric figure in Euclidean space of a given dimension; a line segment in one-dimensional space or a triangle in two-dimensional space.
