In science:

We haven’t, till now, given any attention to the configuration space of geometrodynamics, which is superspace, the space of all Riemannian geometries on the topological manifold Σ (which we are considering to be compact without boundary), more precisely Riem(Σ)/Dif f (Σ).
Huygens-Fresnel Principle in Superspace
However, if we have a well defined distance function between points of Riem, we can establish an equilocality relation used to compare quantities in the two diffeomorphic manifolds by finding the diffeomorphism that induces the minimum distance.
Huygens-Fresnel Principle in Superspace
We give one example that we will expand on further work: Under mild conditions, Riem(M ) can be given a natural principal bundle structure, with base space diffeomorphic to superspace S and with structural group Diff(M ).
Huygens-Fresnel Principle in Superspace
Rather, t 7→ gab (x, t) is any path in the space Riem(Σ) of Riemannian metrics on Σ, and similarly t 7→ pab (x, t) (resp. N (x, t), N a (x, t)) is any path in the space of all contravariant, rank-2 symmetric tensor densities (resp. functions, vector fields) on Σ.
Canonical Quantum Gravity and the Problem of Time
Formally, the domain space of the state functionals is Riem(Σ), and to specify a metric gab (x) at a point x ∈ Σ requires six numbers (the components of the metric in some coordinate system).
