Monte Carlo: Basics
It is necessary to note that in the works mentioned above the movability of topological space was deﬁned by means of the neighborhood of given space (closed embedded in certain AR-space) or by means of inverse spectrums, depending on the approach to shape theory used.
Movable categories
