In science:

To obtain degenerations of complete varieties we need to start from a bounded tropical manifold (B , P ), where B denotes the underlying singular integral affine manifold and P is the decomposition into integral polyhedra, together with an (in general multi-valued) integral piecewise affine function ϕ.
An invitation to toric degenerations
To describe in a few words how motivic integration is different from classical integration it seems best to begin by pointing out that the ring that provides values for integrals is not the real field but a Grothendieck ring.
Integration in algebraically closed valued fields
As in the classical theory of integration, this strategy requires some form of Fubini’s theorem: for a well-behaved integration, an integral should give the same value when it is evaluated along different orders of variables.

The volume form on the manifold determines the orientation of the integral, and the integral is independent of the coordinate functions chosen - the Jacobian allows us to transform the integral from one coordinate system to another.
A Simple Introduction to Particle Physics Part II
Notice that the integral on the left is an n-form integrated over an n-dimensional space, whereas the right is an (n − 1)-form integrated over an (n − 1)-dimensional space, so the integral makes sense on both sides.

Furthermore, as we said previously, we can map the standard simplexes into a manifold M to integrate over a neighborhood of M, and so by using everything we know about integration, we can generalize this to integrals of forms on arbitrary manifolds.

When the system is nearly integrable, the Hamiltonian for the unperturbed part becomes much larger than that of the perturbed part, which enables the method to accomplish a very high accuracy in integrating the equations of motion, compared with conventional symplectic integrators.
