Definitions for "Reduction"
The addition of one or more electrons to an atom or molecule. In the case of a molecule, protons may be involved as well, resulting in hydrogen being added.
The counterpart to oxidation, in which electrons aregained by a compound.
firing ceramic ware at high temperature in the presence of added carbon to reduce the percentage of oxygen in the kiln. This produces muted and subtle color variations, and alters the color-producing reaction of some metallic oxides used as glaze colorants.
The correction of observations for known errors of instruments, etc.
The operation of restoring a dislocated or fractured part to its former place.
Replacement or realignement of a body part in normal position or restoration of a bodily condition to normal.
a liquid boiled until thickened and intensified
A process used to increase and intensify the flavor of a liquid. This is done by rapidly boiling a liquid to decrease its volume through evaporation. This concentrates the flavor, so season a reduction after it's made -- not before.
Heating a liquid to evaporate its water content. Chefs speak of reducing a mixture by one half, one third, or some other fraction, meaning that the finished product is one-third, or some other fraction, meaning that the finished product is one-third less than what you began with. If heating continues until the pan is nearly dry, it is call au sec. Reduction is a way to concentrate flavours.
Commonly done with Ram-Forming technique. Tube is held stationary as a reducing punch is forced over the end to reduce the diameter of a specific section. Reduction is generally limited to 2X the wall thickness of the tube.
The measure of the percentage that the diameter, measuring from the blank to the cup, decreases in the redrawing operation.
In cupping and deep drawing, a measure of the percentage of decrease from blank diameter to cup diameter, or of the diameter reduction in redrawing. In forging, extrusion, rolling, and drawing, either the ratio of the original to the final cross-sectional area or the percentage of decrease in cross-sectional area.
The act or process of reducing. See Reduce, v. t., 6. and To reduce an equation, To reduce an expression, under Reduce, v. t.
The act, process, or result of reducing{7}; as, the reduction of iron from its ores; the reduction of an aldehyde into an alcohol.
The process of viewing an algebraic curve defined by a polynomial with integral coefficients as a curve over the finite field for some prime p.
The process of making a copy of something, as a figure, design, or draught, on a smaller scale, preserving the proper proportions.
An illustration or photograph that is reproduced at a smaller size than the original. The specifications for a reduction are calculated with a proportion wheen as a percentage of original size.
A sculpture that has been reproduced on a smaller scale.
a mapping that reduces the distances between parallel lines by the same factor in all directions (in contrast, see enlargement).
With HP's digital reduce/enlarge features, you can specify the exact reduction or enlargement percentage you need (anything between 25% and 400%).
Shrinking the size of an image. With HP's digital reduce/enlarge features, the user can specify the exact reduction or enlargement percentage needed (anything between 25% and 400%).
A transformation that reduces some particular measure of each object in its domain.
A result of the form, "Problem A is at least as hard as Problem B." This is generally shown by giving an algorithm that transforms any instance of Problem B into an instance of Problem A.
a recasting of one problem as another (somewhat different) problem
Replacing a string of nonterminals and/or terminals with a single nonterminal, according to a grammar rule. See The Bison Parser Algorithm.
The act of reducing, or state of being reduced; conversion to a given state or condition; diminution; conquest; as, the reduction of a body to powder; the reduction of things to order; the reduction of the expenses of government; the reduction of a rebellious province.
As opposed to an outright rejection, a car accepted by a consumer as a lesser grade than shipped may be accepted at a reduction in price, and possibly also be classified as a reduction in grade as well.
an operation on a collection of data that results in new data of lesser dimensionality,
in criminal law: the cut in a sentence due to extenuating/mitigating circumstances There will be a reduction in sentencing due to the early admission of guilt. reduce (v)
odour and taste associated with reduction caused by poor temperature control during winification or ageing
Binary operations (such as summation, multiplication, and boolean) applied globally to all processes in a communicator. These operations are only valid on numeric data and are always associative but may or may not be commutative.
a purification that permits something to contract transcendentally
n. The act of reducing something or someone.
In mathematics, reduction refers to the rewriting of an expression into a simpler form. For example, the process of rewriting a fraction into one with the smallest whole-number denominator possible (while keeping the numerator an integer) is called "reducing a fraction". Rewriting a radical (or "root") expression with the smallest possible whole number under the radical symbol is called "reducing a radical".
The bringing of a syllogism in one of the so-called imperfect modes into a mode in the first figure.
Keywords:  rubbish, did, bottles, throw, ago
this involves using less materials so less rubbish is created. For example, many glass bottle makers now use less glass to make a bottle than they did 10 years ago. This means that less glass rubbish is created when we throw the bottles away.
In a piano reduction, the orchestra parts are condensed into music which can be played by one person on the piano.
Keywords:  pruning, canopy, height, spread
pruning to reduce height and/or spread of canopy.
The compression of a complex, multi-stave score onto one or two staves.
the act of reducing complexity
Keywords:  annul, decree, award, deed, action
To set aside or annul, usually by an action of reduction, a deed, contract, decree or award.
Lowering the viscosity of a paint by the addition of solvent or thinner.
The preparation of the facts and measurements of observations in order to deduce a general result.
the tracing of advanced knowledge to the perceptual data that gives rise to it
Keywords:  pointers, tokens, holds
a token that holds pointers to other tokens
an operation from one stream to another stream of smaller dimensions or to a single value
A measure of the number of times a given linear dimension of a dimension of an object is reduced when photographed, expressed as 16x, 24x, etc.
a cut in the existing active forces available to the Alliance
In spoken languages, reduction is a way to pronounce a certain word or phrase more quickly than usual.
