Let $\struct {R, \norm {\,\cdot\,} }$ be a normed division ring.

Let $a \in R$.

Let $\epsilon \in \R_{>0}$ be a strictly positive real number.

Let $\map {B_\epsilon} a$ be the open $\epsilon$-ball of $a$.

In $\map {B_\epsilon} a$, the value $a$ is referred to as the center of the open $\epsilon$-ball.

Linguistic Note

The British English spelling of center is centre.

The convention on $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ is to use the American English spelling center, but it is appreciated that there may be lapses.
