Flux consists of utility APIs that apply compression and strong cryptography to I/O channels , do strong hashing, and exchange C structs in an architecture-independent fashion. It also provides n-ary trees whose contents can be serialized to human-readable files or network streams, along with some related utilities. It is written in C and integrates with the GLib main loop.
There are several types of fluxes used in the aluminium industry, having different applications, for example to reduce hydrogen gas levels or to remove dross.

Keywords:  mighty, shuffling, google, updates, big
A term to describe the shuffling of positions in search engine results in between major updates. - Google, also known as The Big G or The Mighty G.
The annual amount of organic matter being transferred (e.g. by litterfall) from one compartment to another.
Flux, or metabolic flux is the rate of turnover of molecules through a metabolic pathway or an enzyme. Within cells regulation of flux is vital for all metabolic pathways to regulate the metabolic pathway's activity under different conditions. Flux is therefore of great interest in metabolic network modelling, where it is analysed via flux balance analysis.
