Stress, both pressure and shear, will be understood here as an external influence (force per unit area) on the boundary of a finite sample of the material, with pressure acting on the volume and shear on the shape; its extension to a uniform stress field inside the material is an important issue to be addressed.

An infra-homogeneous space is a quotient of G by a group π ⊂ Aff (G), acting properly discontinuously and freely, such that Γ = π ∩ G is a uniform lattice of G and Γ has a finite index in π .

This latter fact, using standard techniques in transformation group theory, uniformization and topology of 2-manifolds, is not very difficult to prove. (Certainly, if Q acts simplicially, the arguments are not hard).

Actually, accumulated errors are not uniform; these errors depend on the number of single logic gates used for determining given elements, so that larger errors appear when single logic gates act on all the particles.

Definition 2.1 Let (M, d) be a metric space, C a set of points in M. A set C is said a geometrically uniform code if S acts transitively in C, that is, if for any two points p and q in C, the exists an isometry ( i.e. a map which preserves distance) ϕ in S such that ϕ (p) = q .
