Verbal noun of → authenticate.
1) A branching or division into two parts; a splitting apart.
Verbal noun of → bifurcate.
Fr.: point de bifurcation
The point or moment in the evolution of a → dynamical system that occurs if a parameter passes through a critical point. At this point the system branches into any number of qualitatively new types of behavior.
Fr.: théorie de bifurcation

and shifts in behavior dependent on small changes in circumstances or the current position
of the system.
Fr.: classification de Boeshaar-Keenan
A system for the classification of → S-type stars. The system involves the designations of a C/O index and a temperature type. Moreover, when possible, it uses intensity estimates for → ZrO bands, the → TiO bands, the → Na I D-lines, the YO bands, and the Li I 6708 line.
Philip C. Keenan & Patricia C. Boeshaar, 1980, ApJS, 43, 379; → classification.
The action of making a statement or situation less confused and more comprehensible.
Verbal noun of → clarify.
The systematic grouping of astronomical objects into categories on the basis of physical, morphological, or evolutionary characteristics.
Classification, from O.Fr., from classifier, from → class + -fier, from L. -ficare, root of facere "to make, do;" PIE base *dhe- "to put, to do" (cf. Skt. dadhati "puts, places;" Av. dadaiti "he puts," O.Pers. ada "he made," Gk. tithenai "to put, set, place."

Verbal noun of → communicate.
1) Math.: A process applied to topological spaces having
many dimensions to make them compact spaces.
Compactification, n. from → compactify.
Fr.: compactification conforme
A mapping of an infinite → space-time onto a finite one that may make the far away parts of the former accessible to study. The technique invented by Penrose defines an equivalence class of → metrics, gab being equivalent to ĝab = Ω2gab, where Ω is a positive scalar function of the space-time that modifies the distance scale making the asymptotics of the physical metric accessible to study.
The act of convoking. The state of being convoked.
Verbal noun of → convoke.
Fr.: identification croisée
The identification of an object in a data base or catalog and matching it with the same object identified in another catalog.
→ cross; → identification.
Fr.: défuzzification, concrétisation
The process of producing a quantifiable result in a → fuzzy logic system, given → fuzzy sets and corresponding → membership functions. Defuzzification is the last step in a fuzzy logic system. After → fuzzy inferencing, the overall result is a → fuzzy value. This result should be defuzzified to obtain a final → crisp value.
The removal of mystery or confusion surrounding a topic or idea.
