**"Projections"**Method of preparing for a draft that projects expected statistical performances by players for the season based on past statistics as well as additional influential factors. Also prepared during the course of the season on a weekly basis by fantasy football experts to indicate likely performances of individual players for upcoming games.

Base line extrapolations of a past trend.

A prognosticators prediction via statistics of any given NFL player for the year head.

Forecasted financial information. See Creating Your Pitch: Business Model and Financial Projections.

Tracks of the key fiscal indicators for a further five years beyond the five-year forecast period. The tracks are based on long-run economic assumptions and current fiscal policy settings. For example, the projections assume no economic cycle with constant long-run interest rate, inflation rate and unemployment assumptions.

Projections of the key fiscal indicators beyond the five-year forecast period. The projections are based on long-run economic and fiscal assumptions. For example, the projections assume no economic cycle and constant long-run interest, inflation and unemployment rates.

Projections implement constraints on an object in a way that minimizes the change in the object as measured by the Euclidean norm. Fourier modulus projection adjusts the moduli of the components of an object's Fourier transform to agree with known values without changing the corresponding phases. Viewed as an operation which modifies an object in the "object domain", Fourier modulus projection acting on an object is expressed as Pf(A) = F-1[ Fd exp(i Arg F(A) ) ] (the vector of phases of the Fourier transform of , exp(i Arg F(A) ), is multiplied componentwise by the vector of Fourier modulus data, Fd, and the result is inverse transformed). Support projection, the operation which implements the support constraint, sets pixels (voxels, etc.) outside of the known support of the object to zero.

Different ways of projecting the surface of the globe onto a flat screen or sheet of paper are called projections. The choice of a projection can influence how the world is perceived. Most of the maps shown in this first phase of the Atlas of Global Inequality use the Peters Projection. This is an equal area projection, meaning that it shows the size of different areas of the world relatively evenly. But this projection does not portray shape and direction accurately. See the page of Map Projections for more information.

An estimate of a future occurrence, event or activity based on historical evidence of past experience.

Estimates of the future operations and conditions for a business. They have been permitted and encouraged for many years but almost never used in prospectuses for underwritten public offerings of shares. Projections are generally used in private placements of shares and in public offerings of junk bonds.

Process of calculating an interest amount through a specific date in the future and posting the interest prior to the end of the specified interest period.

A forward looking view of a company's operations. See also, Proforma.

Projections which consider the probability of various events occurring to individuals over the duration of the process under study. The model may be set out in mathematical formulas or take the form of a simulation where specific values of the variables are included in a system of relations.

Indicators of relative magnitude and probable direction.
