Definitions for "Invocation"
The act or form of calling for the assistance or presence of some superior being; earnest and solemn entreaty; esp., prayer offered to a divine being.
A call or summons; especially, a judicial call, demand, or order; as, the invocation of papers or evidence into court.

The ceremony used to start a tournament or pas d'armes. There is little evidence for this being done in the Middle Ages, yet there is little evidence of any sort for what went on at these tourneys and festivals with regard to ceremony. The most accurate source we have is one that describes an ‘ideal' tournament of the 15th century by King René d'Anjou, The Book on the Form and the Devising of a Tournament; and there is no evidence to say that this is how tournaments were done--René himself says that this is an ideal rather than the reality. The sole references seem to be buried in Geoffrey de Charnay's Demands; see Barber and Barker for more detailed information. It is clear that knights often swore an oath at the start of a tournament. Charnay asks, ‘If a knight fails to swear such an oath, should he be excluded?' Modern tournament companies have taken this tradition from the SCA as a mechanism to set the tone and expectation for a day's fighting, generally imploring the combatants to observe the rules, to value the striving more than hollow victory, and to set out what is expected of the combatant and gallery during the day's fighting.

The presence of the name of an institution or a researcher in a Web page. The global presence is the number of times the name appears in the Web and can be calculated easily using quotation marks around the name in the search engines. Sometimes this figure is referred as the number of times this name is cited in the Web. Some authors refer this as Web visibility, although we prefer to reserve this word for link visibility. This indicator usually favours large, well-known, old institutions independently of their real effort for having a relevant Web presence. No invocation measure was used in our ranking, mainly because it is not possible to assign a unique, unambiguous universal name for every institution.
A formal notification to a service provider that its services will be required.
