• Holonomic constraints, which are expressible as a function of the coordinates $x_j\,\!$ and time $t\,\!$
• Holonomic module in the theory of D-modules
• Holonomic function, a smooth function in several variables that is a solution of a system of linear homogeneous differential equations with polynomial coefficients

## Robotics

• Holonomicity of the relationship between the controllable and total degrees of freedom of a given robot
