Definitions for "Detection"
The act of detecting; the laying open what was concealed or hidden; discovery; as, the detection of a thief; the detection of fraud, forgery, or a plot.
The discovery of an abnormality or disease in the body. 'Early detection' is the discovery of an abnormality at an early stage when it is readily treated and, in the case of cancer, much more likely to be curable.
the perception that something has occurred or some state exists; "early detection can often lead to a cure"
In electromagnetics, an operation converting the vector electromagnetic wave to a scalar time series proportional to either the amplitude or the power of the wave, with or without an accompanying angular time series. A crucial aspect of detection is: the signal-to-noise ratio after detection is the square of the signal-to-noise ratio before detection.
The separation of low-frequency (audio) intelligence from the high-frequency carrier.
the detection that a signal is being received
this terms refers to the initial indication of a fuel gas leak. This can mean small concentrations of 10 to 500 PPM. This is the precursor step before isolation and/or localization of the gas leak.
A quantitative measurement indicating if the transcript is detected (Present), not detected (Absent), or marginally detected (Marginal). Empirical Algorithms: The algorithms contained in GeneChip Analysis Suite and Microarray Suite 4.0 based on empirical data generated by Affymetrix.
The process of identifying the presence or passage of a vehicle at a specific point or the presence of one or more vehicles in a specific area.
An auditory response that indicates a sound was heard. A child might indicate he or she detects a sound with a head turn, nodding, raising a hand, putting a toy in a container, etc. The fact that a child detects a sound does not necessarily mean he or she can discriminate it from other sounds – detection is simply an indication of the presence or absence of a sound.
registering the presence of a stimulus (detection of a difference = discrimination)
a big no-no, as far as I'm concerned - it doesn't work, unnecessarily hurts users, isn't future proof, and basically isn't even particularly necessary in the first place
The ability to distinguish that an artifact within the field of view is an anomoly.
The ability of a testing method or screening program to actually identify individuals with the particular disease or condition. The higher the detection rate, the more accurate the testing method or screening program.
A reference to the ability to detect diamond simulants, synthetics, and treatments.
a police investigation to determine the perpetrator; "detection is hard on the feet"
an important analytical tool in molecular biology
a very important part of blood analysis
A past-oriented strategy that attempts to identify unacceptable output after is has been produced and then separate it from the good output.
The actual confirmation and location of mines.
