[cosmology] The concept of "curvature of space" is fundamental to cosmology. A space without curvature is called a "flat space" or Euclidean space. Whether the universe is “flat″ could determine its ultimate fate; whether it will expand forever, or ultimately collapse back into itself. T...

[art] In art criticism of the 1960s and 1970s, flatness described the smoothness and absence of curvature or surface detail of a two-dimensional work of art. Critic Clement Greenberg believed that flatness, or two-dimensionality, was an essential and desirable quality in painting, a criterio...

[liquids] Flatness refers to the shape of a liquid`s free surface. On planet Earth, the flatness of a liquid is a function of the curvature of the Earth, and from trigonometry, can be found to deviate from true flatness by approximately 19.6 nanometers over an area of 1 square meter, a devia...

Flatness is a measure of the amplitude variance of signals as they enter the digitizer and make their way to the ADC. When the frequency of incoming signals rises, the amplitude falls toward the bandwidth -3 dB point. Favorable flatness values are especially important when measuring dynamic signals ...
