The concept of vertex derives from the Latin word vertex. From the perspective of the geometry , the vertex is the name the point which marks the union between the segments that originate an angle or where a minimum of three planes merges. The cusp of a cone or a pyramid is also known as a vertex, as is the maximum or minimum point of a curved line.
In the Graphic Schema Theory , each vertex is considered as the fundamental unit that composes the graphs . Non-directed graphs are composed of vertices and edges (that is, disordered pairs of vertices), while directed graphs encompass vertices and arcs (ordered pairs of vertices).
The concept is also used in the mapping and in the topography to name the point of a surface whose altitude is greater than that of all other points that are adjacent to it. In this sense, the term is synonymous with top or summit and refers, for example, to the highest part of a mountain.
The so-called geodesic vertex , on the other hand, identifies a signal that is used to indicate a specific location contemplated within the framework of a set of triangles (constituted, in turn, by other vertices of a geodesic nature).
In the same way we can not overlook that Vértice was the name of a Spanish publishing house that was specialized in the production of what are comics and specifically in the translation of those that came from the mythical Marvel. Until the beginning of the 80s, this company worked that allowed the little Spaniards, and also adults, to enjoy the adventures of Spiderman, Stan Lee, or Colonel Furia, Jim Steranko.
Likewise, it should be stressed that within the entertainment world there is an audiovisual distributor called Vértice Cine. It has been the result of the merger of Notro Films and Manga Films.
And all this without forgetting that in the same way the term we are analyzing is the name of two musical groups. One of them, currently still in force, is framed within the rock genre and its members come from the Spanish city of Valladolid.
The second formation mentioned is already missing and was very important in the Catalan musical world back in the decades of the 60s and 70s. The blues was the field in which it moved especially that although it also made its forays into rock more symphonic. Its members only managed to record two songs ("You're not real" and "Take me Away") in a mini album that was called "Diabolo" and was performed in 1970 in the famous GMA studios.
For the anatomy Finally, the vertex is determined by the highest area of the head of vertebrates and arthropods. In the case of humans, the cranial vertex It is composed of the frontal bone, the parietal bones and the occipital bone, joined together by the coronary suture, the sagittal suture and the lambdoid suture.
