  Term: Velocity Space
  Definition: Mathematical space where each point corresponds not to a certain location in reality, but to a certain velocity. Distribution functions typically involve mixes of both position and velocity spaces. (See distribution function.) Contrast with "position space" where each point corresponds to a given location.
