Hence, it became clear that the electrostatic “field” is an abstract concept that provides a mathematical tool for calculating the Coulomb force, but does not by itself constitute a physical entity that exists at every point in space as classical electrostatics suggests.
Electrodynamics and the Mass-Energy Equivalence Principle
Intuitively, nodes in the graph represent physical and abstract entities like users and topics, and links represent connections and activities between entities such as friendship and tagging actions.
SocialScope: Enabling Information Discovery on Social Content Sites
The cardinal power belongs to the standard Cousot and Cousot’s abstract interpretation theory and was proposed in to capture dependencies between abstract properties of a concrete entity .
Parametrizing Program Analysis by Lifting to Cardinal Power Domains
Given that entities such as papers have abstracts, keywords, and titles, does it make sense to vary the amount of this information in the queries? If we have the equivalent of Table  for a collection, we can do a table lookup at run time to determine which formulations are the most promising.

Composition is a relation among material things and should not be mistaken with ‘∈’, which is a relation between elements and sets (i.e. abstract entities).
