A sphere is a geometrical object in three-dimensional space, the surface of a ball. Like a circle in a two-dimensional space, a sphere is defined mathematically as the set of points that are all at the same distance r from a given point, but in a three-dimensional space; this distance r is the radius of the ball, made up from all points with a distance less than r from the given point, the center of the mathematical ball. These are referred to as the radius and center of the sphere, respectively; the longest straight line segment through the ball, connecting two points of the sphere, passes through the center and its length is thus twice the radius. While outside mathematics the terms "sphere" and "ball" are sometimes used interchangeably, in mathematics the above distinction is made between a sphere, a two-dimensional closed surface embedded in a three-dimensional Euclidean space, a ball, a three-dimensional shape that includes the sphere and everything inside the sphere, or, more just the points inside, but not on the sphere.

The distinction between ball and sphere has not always been maintained and older mathematical references talk about a sphere as a solid. This is analogous to the situation in the plane, where the terms "circle" and "disk" can be confounded. In analytic geometry, a sphere with center and radius r is the locus of all points such that 2 + 2 + 2 = r 2. Let a, b, c, d, e be real numbers with a ≠ 0 and put x 0 = − b a, y 0 = − c a, z 0 = − d a, ρ = b 2 + c 2 + d 2 − a e a 2; the equation f = a + 2 + e = 0 has no real points as solutions if ρ < 0 and is called the equation of an imaginary sphere. If ρ = 0, the only solution of f = 0 is the point P 0 = and the equation is said to be the equation of a point sphere. In the case ρ > 0, f = 0 is an equation of a sphere whose center is P 0 and whose radius is ρ. If a in the above equation is zero f = 0 is the equation of a plane. Thus, a plane may be thought of as a sphere of infinite radius; the points on the sphere with radius r > 0 and center can be parameterized via x = x 0 + r sin ⁡ θ cos ⁡ φ y = y 0 + r sin ⁡ θ sin ⁡ φ z = z 0 + r cos ⁡ θ The parameter θ can be as
