    • - speech sounds are produced as a continuous sound signal rather than discrete units

  1. constituting a separate entity or part; "a government with three discrete divisions"; "on two distinct occasions"
  2. (discreteness) the state of being several and distinct
  3. A discrete signal or discrete-time signal is a time series consisting of a sequence of quantities. In other words, it is a time series that is a function over a domain of discrete integers. Each value in the sequence is called a sample.
  4. Separate; distinct; individual; Non-continuous; Something that can be perceived individually and not as connected to, or part of something else; Having separate electronic components, such as individual resistors and inductors — the opposite of integrated circuitry; Having separate and ...
  5. (discretely) As a separate independent unit
  6. Pertains to separate and distinct parts of data such as holes in a card or graphic characters.
  7. In the context of sampling or measurement "discrete" refers to an isolated measurement. It is not possible to obtain/ interpolate a value between other discrete samples/ measurements and infer continuous values.
  8. means "separate and distinct": Even though they were married, they kept their money in two discrete accounts.
  9. Taking only non-continuous values, e.g., Boolean or natural numbers.
  10. Evolution is explicitly represented by many steps, for example the interleaving of local changes in the overall system, or sequence of discrete events explicitly captured.
  11. A data item that has a finite set of values. Discrete is the opposite of continuous.
  12. Composed of a finite number of parts which cannot be further divided.  Contrast to continuous.
  13. data that only occur in selected places on the earths surface
  14. a single semiconductor device per die or packaged product, as opposed to an integrated circuit that is more than one semiconductor device per die.
  15. The axis contains independent data values rather than a range of numeric values. Each distinct value is represented by a tick mark. Discrete is the default axis type for character data.
  16. refers to the audio channel or signal that is independent from any of the other channels.  Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 are examples of discrete multi-channel sound systems.
  17. The separation between two elements with no interaction.
  18. Constituting a separate thing, with unconnected distinct parts. In the world of audio, discrete is generally used to signify separate components. ...
  19. Data, usually textual, that takes on a fixed set of values, such as the flavor of a product. Discrete textual data always should be handled as attributes in a dimension table as opposed to continuously valued numeric data that belongs in a fact table.
  20. Quantity is not continuous, where one or more numbers are not applicable.
  21. A type of random variable which may take on only a limited set of values, such as 1,2,3,...,10. The list may be finite, or there may be an infinite number of values. A discrete random variable is to be contrasted with a continuous random variable.
  22. adj. refers to the properties of language that (a) continuous changes in the acoustic signal result not in continuous changes in a perceived speech sounds but in perceptually distinct sounds (a phenomenon also known as categorical perception), and (b) semantically, changes in meaning result from ...
  23. adj. separate; distinct
  24. individually distinct
