Definitions for **"Dimension"**

class of very general sememes, independent of do mains. Dimensions are grouped into smaller closed categories (ex. //animate// versus //inanimate//). Evaluations are part of dimensions.

A Highlander Dimension is an independent variable assuming a finite number of discrete possibilities. Dimensions may be categorical in nature, or numeric in nature ranging over a continuous spectrum. In the latter case, the range of possible dimension values is partitioned into intervals and categorized by the interval containing its value. Virtual dimensions are computed from a set of independent variables according to a user-defined expression then categorized by an interval partition.

The same category of information. For example, year, month, day, and week are all part of the Time Dimension.

Measure in a single line, as length, breadth, height, thickness, or circumference; extension; measurement; -- usually, in the plural, measure in length and breadth, or in length, breadth, and thickness; extent; size; as, the dimensions of a room, or of a ship; the dimensions of a farm, of a kingdom.

Extent; reach; scope; importance; as, a project of large dimensions.

(n or v) The physical size of an object, or the process of documenting physical sizes. The number of dimensions used to describe the object depends on whether length (1-D), area (2-D), or volume (3-D) is being measured. Dimensioning can also refer to the measurement of size, location, and orientation of particular features on an object.

A literal factor, as numbered in characterizing a term. The term dimensions forms with the cardinal numbers a phrase equivalent to degree with the ordinal; thus, a2b2c is a term of five dimensions, or of the fifth degree.

The dimension of a vector space is the number of vectors in any basis of the space. Examples: R3 has dimension 3 P3 has dimension 4 (with basis {1,x,x2,x3}) C has dimension 1 when viewed as a vector space with complex scalars, but it has dimension 2 if it is viewed as a vector space with real scalars (with basis {1,}).

Latin dimensio, a measuring -- there are four known dimensions, the three space coordinates of length, width, and depth, along with the fourth dimension of time in the theory of relativity. The space-time continuum is a four-dimensional continuum with four coordinates, the three dimensions of space and that of time, in which any event can be located.

Magnitude measured in a particular direction or along a diameter or principal axis. Dimensions show work piece size on blueprints.

The zero-based number or numbers inside brackets in an array declaration that define the arrays size. For example, char p[10] declares a one-dimensional character array that has ten elements. To declare arrays of two or more dimensions, place each dimension in its own set of brackets, as in char x[10] [20].

Each subscript of an array corresponds to a dimension of the array; arrays may have from one to seven dimensions. The number of dimensions is an array's rank. See also extent.

The degree of manifoldness of a quantity; as, time is quantity having one dimension; volume has three dimensions, relative to extension.

The manifoldness with which the fundamental units of time, length, and mass are involved in determining the units of other physical quantities.

a property (such as time, location or product) used as a fundamental way of qualifying, accessing and presenting information

Independent axes for SIGNALS

a slice of data

An independent business process in the model of an organization that serves as a mechanism for slicing the facts or metrics of the organization. Some examples of dimensions are employee information, component, time, personnel actions, etc.

See embedding dimension, box-counting dimension, correlation dimension, information dimension, dimension of a system.

Sets have dimensions, which can be defined in various ways. The most popular mathematical dimension is the Hausdorff dimension, which is often difficult to compute, but is well-defined and interesting. Other dimensions of interest include the capacity dimension (also called the `box-counting' dimension), the correlation dimension, and the information dimension. When non-integer in value, any of these are loosely referred to as the `fractal' dimension. See e.g. [] for more details.

1. Of a set: the dimension of the smallest affine space that contains the set. The dimension of an affine space is k if the maximum number of affinely independent points in the set is k+1. Of particular interest is the column space of a matrix A: {x: x=Ay for some y in R^n}. The dimension of this is the rank of A. Another is the row space of A: {x: x=uA for some u in R^m}. The dimension of this is also the rank of A. 2. Of an expression: the units of measurement (e.g., tons of apples, meters of rope, hours of labor). In a relation, such as y = ax + b, the units of y, ax and b must all be the same. Dimensional analysis is concerned with determining such consistency and inferring whatever units are missing.

The dimenstion of a square matrix is the number of rows (or columns in that matrix.

a container of logical relationships between columns, and it does not have any data storage assigned to it

a state of being in which we exist; on Earth we exist in 3rd dimension; spirits and aliens exist in higher dimensions, where time doesn't exist - spirits and aliens exist in higher dimensions, so you need to use your third eye, or inner eye to see them;

Connecting cells along dimensions is what ZigZag is about. Locally, dimensions work just like on a spreadsheet: each cell can be connected to one cell in the positive direction and to one cell in the negative direction along each dimension. However, there are no global constraints between the dimensions.

Number of pixels in either x- or y-direction.

a state of consciousness

In data analysis, dimensions are variables in a situation. For example, time, product type, [geographic] region are three dimensions of a sales situation: product types are sold over time in different regions.

A Dimension is typically a qualifiable and text value, such as a region, product line, and includes date values. It defines the secondary headings or labels that make up the body of the report. Each of the dimensions is repeated within each group. Usually, you use items containing text values (for example, Year or item type) for table dimensions. For example, if you select Item Type to be your table dimension, Item Type is a dimension within each group header. Under the dimension "Item Type," appears the name of each kind of item (for example, CD ROM, or HARD Drive). and corresponds to the . A fact is an quantifiable value, such amount of sales, budget or revenue.
