exterior Jordan content[ek¦stir·ē·ər ¦jȯrd·ən ′kän‚tent]
Also known as exterior content.
For a set of points on a line, the largest number C such that the sum of the lengths of a finite number of closed intervals that includes every point in the set is always equal to or greater than C.
The exterior Jordan content of a set of points, X, in n-dimensional Euclidean space (where n is a positive integer) is the greatest lower bound on the hypervolume of the union of a finite set of hypercubes that contains X.
