    I realized that we had a stub entry “configuration space” with the physics concept, and a stub entry “Fadell’s configuration space” with the maths concept, and no interrelation between them, also without any examples. So I created a disambiguation page

    and then

    but I also left

    separate for the moment, thinking that in principle the term in matematics may be understood more generally, too. But maybe something should be merged here.

    I added the example of the unordered configuration space of \mathbb{R}^\infty as a model for the classifying space for the symmetric group to the relevant entries. But otherwise they do remain stubby, alas.
