Weld

Jump to navigation Jump to search

To weld two or more still lifes or oscillators is to join them together. This is often done in order to fit the objects into a smaller space than would otherwise be possible. A simple example is the integral sign, which can be considered as a pair of welded eater 1s. Beehive could be seen as two welded tubs, the loaf a weld of two beehives, and mango a two loaf weld. A more complex example is the catalyst in the syringe which is a weld of an eater 2 and an eater 5.

A weld comprising overlapping unmodified objects is called a siamese object.
