Any particular system of characters, symbols, or abbreviated expressions used in art or science, to express briefly technical facts, quantities, etc.

A notation is a technical system of symbols used to represent unique things, such as âˆ‘ for sum, â‚¬ for Euro currency and âˆž for infinity. For high level computer languages, the notation is defined by a syntax that varies from language to language. For domain-oriented development, the domain terminology defines the domain notation. In each case, Intentional Software separates the notation from the code so that multiple notations can be used to express the same thing.

A system of characters, symbols, or abbreviated expressions used to express technical facts or qualities.

In dance, any written or visual record of choreography. Although standard dance notation systems exist, they are usually too complex for students at this level. Invented notation for dance could take the form of computer notation, animation, sculpting, symbols and colours, flip books, and so on. In music, any written or visual form of representing music compositions. Invented notation refers to any system of representation constructed to meet the unique requirements of a particular composer or piece of music; may be diagrammatic, descriptive, narrative, pictorial, tactile, or a combination of any of these. Details may be precise or general in nature. Electronic technology may be used to create unique notation systems. Standard notation refers to the system that uses the five-line staff and oval noteheads with stems placed on the staff to represent specific pitches and rhythms.

a concrete, symbolic encoding of information, such as numbers, words, names and symbols

code used in formal classification schemes. In the Dewey Decimal Classification the notation 993 refers to the history of New Zealand, and the notation 994 refers to the history of Australia.

A system of symbols and coordinates for recording the moves of a game. See "Algebraic notation".

any means of writing down music

Set of boxes, arrows, symbols and labels used to draw diagrams. Each model has its own set of notational conventions.

The use of various symbols to indicate the pitch, rhythm, and expressive elements of a composition.

the representation of musical tones by written characters

written music, the notes on a page

The symbols used to represent concepts in a classification scheme. These may have a recognized order e.g. numerals or letters of the alphabet or may be arbitrary, e.g. punctuation marks. If the latter, a filing order has be prescribed.

A system of numbers and/or letters used to represent a classification scheme. Mixed notation uses two or more symbols -- letters and numbers (e.g. Library of Congress classification). Pure notation uses one kind of symbol -- either letters or numbers (e.g. Dewey Decimal classification).

the writing down of a piece of music; or the written form itself

The most common form of musical representation, showing musical notes on staves.

a written system of notes, figures, and symbols used to represent musical tones and dynamic values in a composition.

The mechanism by which a written analog to a physical process may be preserved for future use. Generally involves symbols which can be interpreted at a later time to recreate the original process. The symbols may be visual (pictographic) or metaphoric or schematic, or they may be arbitrary symbols. In the latter case, the symbols may be assigned either to actions required to produce the end-result, or to actual aspects of the end-result. Either of these choices requires that the enactor/performer know both how to perform the actions required, and how to correctly interpret the symbols.

Numerals, letters and/or symbols used to represent the main and subordinate divisions of a classification scheme. In the DDC, Arabic numerals are used to represent the classes, e.g., notation 07 from Table 1 and 511.3 from the schedules.

the use of signs or symbols to represent words, quantities, etc. Some example where notations are commonly found are Petri-nets, Pert charts, flow charts, and AND/OR graphs.

The writing down of music, typically on a staff using musical signs for pitch, time and other sound qualities.

A system for preserving music by means of written signs. May consist of notes or neumes, a graph or graphs, tablature, numbers, letters or, in some cases, symbols unique to a culture.

Written music indicating pitch and rhythm for performance.

A term for a system of expressing musical sounds through the use of written characters, called notes.

A manner of representing quantities. See positional notation, binary notation, biquinary notation, decimal notation, fixed point, floating point, hexidecimal notation, octal notation, sexidecimal notation, ternary notation.
