(1) (n.) A quick modification to a routine or an object program.(2) (n.) In computer graphics, a portion of an object surface defined by some number of points. Patches are separately defined and then grouped to form the shell of an object. Surface patches can either be planar (flat) or curved.
A modification of a program or an information system.
(IEEE) A change made directly to an object program without reassembling or recompiling from the source program.
A primitive patch or (more usual) a named patch. primitive patch: A hunk, addfile, replace or any other or future of darcs' patch types. They encode different ways to modify a source tree. Patches are exact (not fuzzy) and must be applied in presice order, but through the theory of patches they can be commuted (altered to apply in a different order) without changeing the end result. Some times a patch depends on another so they can not be commuted. Sometimes two patchs conflict (they typicaly come from different developers) and the end result is undecidable (ambigous) untill the conflict is resolved with a new patch. named patch: A colection of primitive patches, recorded together and given a name, date, author and posibly a longer description. The named patch is identified by a hash name that is (suposed to be) globaly unique. The patch can now travel around the world to make its changes included in other repositories, or it can be excluded to return to an older version in a (copy of a) repository. composite patch : TODO split patch : TODO
a change to the data in a file or database

A patch is made of three or four splines (3 or 4 connected points). A surface is made up of at least one patch but usually many.
a polygon connecting four neighboring points of a surface
This term refers to the area on a B-spline surface located between consecutive rows and columns of the surface. Therefore, all of the rows and columns subdivide the surface into a grid of patches. The program sometimes allows you to deal with the surface on a patch-by-patch basis.
An area of the landscape differing in appearance from its surroundings. Patches may be due to natural (soil type) or anthropogenic (development) factors. Areas of oak woodland, grassland, and residential development are examples of patches within a landscape.
An area of vegetation, similar in structure and composition.
small area of a particular ecological community surrounded by distinctly different ecological communities, such as a forest stand surrounded by agricultural lands or a small opening surrounded by forestland.
a subset of a datacube of the form Q
Dealing with tilings, it is useful to consider finite parts of a tiling. These are called patches (or clusters). The definition is simply: a patch is a finite subset of a tiling. Sometimes one requires, in addition, that the support of a patch should be connected, or homeomorphic to a ball. The latter leads to problems in higher dimensions. There are tilings where no patch with more than one tile is homeomorphic to a ball (although the prototiles are), see Fig. 3 in [Fre02].
a curved surface with a rectangular border, or outline; patches may be combined together to create compound curved surfaces
Any map component built from bezier curves. This includes bevels, caps, patches, and cylinders.
a curved surface defined by a three by three grid of control points
A covering that is applied to the skin and contains medication.
A form of skin testing in which suspected allergens are applied to the skin, covered, and observed for several days to see if a reaction occurs. This is often used in identifying the possible causes of allergic contact dermatitis. Should not be attempted at home.
A covering put over the skin that has medicine. The Lidoderm patch used by people with post-herpetic neuralgia has the pain reliever lidocaine.
To dream that you have patches upon your clothing, denotes that you will show no false pride in the discharge of obligations. To see others wearing patches, denotes want and misery are near. If a young woman discovers a patch on her new dress, it indicates that she will find trouble facing her when she imagines her happiest moments are approaching near. If she tries to hide the patches, she will endeavor to keep some ugly trait in her character from her lover. If she is patching, she will assume duties for which she has no liking. For a woman to do family patching, denotes close and loving bonds in the family, but a scarcity of means is portended.

Hit space bar for 11x11 matrix of values centered on cursor
Way to describe a 3D surface. A patch is a matrix of 3D points and the relation between the points is defined by their position in the matrix (number of lines and a fixed number of columns) having said that, a patch cannot define a closed surface. It is not like a mesh, or a meshing where we describe the relation between different points while describing an order of polygons. FAPS produce a patch for each view each digitizer by exporting into a .net. format. In our case, this patch represents a part of the digitized object. A patch is a model. The patch corresponds well to the representation of data obtained from an InSpeck digitizer since for each pixel of the camera's matrix we obtain a notation in XYZ. Many patches of an object can be reunited to form a model. This definition of patch is specific to InSpeck. Note: The terms Patch and Mesh do not designate the same realities in the CAD (engineering) and computer graphics domain.

the way in which lantern s or fixtures are connected via circuits to the dimmer s or control gear, and how these are connected in turn to the desk.
