CotaThe concept of level it can be used in different ways. The term, when it comes from Old French cote, refers to the clothing that the kings used in their public actions or the body protection made with leather and iron.

The level, in this sense, was a armor formed with iron rings, steel or bronze that are intertwined in a pattern. The origin of these mesh dimensions, also called Jacerine heights, It is found in the Celtic peoples, who began to manufacture them in the 5th century BC

This kind of tunic o shirt, called chain mail, had an extension that generally reached below the waist. The most used pattern to assemble them consisted of each ring being linked with four others, although there were several. There was also the so-called mesh coif, a kind of hood made in the same way that was usually used to complement the helmet or replace the helmet.

It is important to highlight the great resistance of the chainmail, in addition to the flexibility offered to soldiers on the battlefield and during long horseback rides. Older versions of armor consisted of few rigid pieces, which weighed much more and allowed much less mobility. In addition to these functional advantages, we must not overlook that it was much cheaper to manufacture than the previous ones, since it required less metal per unit.

Although it is believed that the Celtic peoples created it, there are certain indications in the Koran that suggest that the first person to have used this type of protection was King David. Its use extended until the 16th century.

If, on the other hand, cota derives from Latin quota, you can refer to a share (a proportional part or an amount to be paid), at a level or to a height. For instance: “It is expected that, during the weekend, the snow level will drop to 300 meters of altitude”, “The height of the dam must increase so that residents do not suffer a significant decrease in water supply”, “The Central Bank analyzes modifying the level of the currency”.

Cota is called the altitude that reaches a point located in a horizontal plane, which is used as a reference. In a technical drawing, it is called boundary or dimension line to the representation of certain characteristics of an object (dimensions, distances, etc.).

CotaIn the field of algorithm analysis, is known as asymptotic upper bound to function which is used as the upper bound of another if the argument tends to infinity. It is usually expressed as O (g (x)), according to Landau notation (created specifically for feature comparison so that dimensions are noted asymptotic lower, asymptotic superior and asymptotic adjusted).

Said formula is read “Order of g (x)”, and we can say that it is a function belonging to this order when a positive constant represents the point that cannot be overcome with any variable of the same. The function is always below gexcept when given as value the constant factor.

On Colombia, on the other hand, there is a municipality called Cota. It is part of the department of Cundinamarca and it has a population of about 25,000 inhabitants. On Portugal, Cota is the name of a parish belonging to the district from Viseu.

Regarding the term parishIt should be mentioned that it is the name given to the administrative organizations belonging to a municipality, for example, in the countries called lusophones (those in which the official language is Portuguese). Other forms by which the parish is known (in addition to its version with a tilde in the I, parish), they are a district, parish, neighborhood and district.
