Non-continuous A step by step (countable) approach Digital systems operate this way, with time steps being the controlling factor A sufficiently large number of such steps can approximate to any continuous (analogue) system
Discrete ideas or things are separate and distinct from each other. instruction manuals that break down jobs into scores of discrete steps. = separate, distinct. clearly separate (discretus; DISCREET)
Pertains to separate and distinct parts of data such as holes in a card or graphic characters
Disjunctive; containing a disjunctive or discretive clause; as, "I resign my life, but not my honor," is a discrete proposition
A collection is discrete if for any given element there exists another member of the set "next to" the original element; e g , the whole numbers
A type of random variable which may take on only a limited set of values, such as 1,2,3, ,10 The list may be finite, or there may be an infinite number of values A discrete random variable is to be contrasted with a continuous random variable
- Separate, with no predeterminedinteraction between elements In electronics, the term refers to a design that uses individual parts rather than an integrated circuit In audio equipment, it means a system made up of separate, single-function components rather than combination equipment And In multichannel audio systems, it indicates a system in which the signals on individual channels are uniquely different from each other
\dis-KREET\, adjective: 1 Constituting a separate thing; distinct 2 Consisting of distinct or unconnected parts 3 (Mathematics) Defined for a finite or countable set of values; not continuous
Having separate electronic components, such as individual resistors and inductors - the opposite of integrated circuitry
constituting a separate entity or part; "a government with three discrete divisions"; "on two distinct occasions
A variable that has a distinct identity or value, in contrast to a continuous valued variable A discrete state neuron can have only 1 value from a certain set of values Discrete time describes the nature of the variable used for time, t, where t is an integer and time is counted in steps t+1, t+2, etc With each step, the value for the neuron is updated
Divided into a finite number sections or levels An example would be an approximation to a smooth curve draw with a set of straight lines Triangulations are discrete models of surfaces
The dictionary defines discrete as "separate or distinct", which is how the data appears in a digital data stream (such as a digital audio data stream), in separate, distinct values This property of distinctness that computer data has is a big problem when it comes to sound (and most other things in real life), since neither time nor amplitude can be measured in nice handy steps They are analogue and can take any value
Discrete mathematics, also called finite mathematics or Decision Maths, is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete, in the sense of not supporting or requiring the notion of continuity. Most, if not all, of the objects studied in finite mathematics are countable sets, such as integers, finite graphs, and formal languages
(Ticaret) A measurable, individual transaction or status change with specific start and end timing that can be attributed as a source of requirements or a trigger for other events
(Ticaret) A manufacturing environment often characterized by individual, separate unit production, low unit volume, high product complexity, variable lead times and production to order vs. to stock
A quantitative variable whose set of possible values is countable Typical examples of discrete variables are variables whose possible values are a subset of the integers, such as Social Security numbers, the number of people in a family, ages rounded to the nearest year, etc Discrete variables are "chunky " C f continuous variable A discrete random variable is one whose set of possible values is countable A random variable is discrete if and only if its cumulative probability distribution function is a stair-step function; i e , if it is piecewise constant and only increases by jumps
