Prof. Dr. Florentin Smarandache, during his research period in the Summer of 2012 at
the Research Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods, from Guangdong University of
Technology, in Guangzhou, China, has introduced the Linear and Non-Linear Attraction
Point Principle and the Network of Attraction Curves, he has generalized the 1D Extension
Distance and the 1D Dependent Function to 2D, 3D, and in general to n-D Spaces, and he
generalized Qiao-Xing Li’s and Xing-Sen Li’s definitions of the Location Value of a Point
and the Dependent Function of a Point on a Single Finite Interval from one dimension (1D)
to 2D, 3D, and in general n-D spaces.
He used the Extenics, together with Victor Vlădăreanu, Mihai Liviu Smarandache,
Tudor Păroiu, and Ştefan Vlăduţescu, in 2D and 3D spaces in technology, philosophy, and
Extenics is the science of solving contradictory problems in many fields set up by
Prof. Cai Wen in 1983.
