2. The separation of something into its constituents in order to find out what it contains and to examine individual parts or to study the structure of the whole.
3. An assessment, description, or explanation of something, usually based on careful considerations or investigations.
4. A branch of mathematics dealing with differential calculus, functions, and limits.
5. The way of expressing grammatical relationships; such as, the use of function words or word order, rather than inflectional forms, to express grammatical relationships in a language.

chromosome analysis
A laboratory procedure that isolates the chromosome pairs so they may be visualized.
cladistics, cladism, cladistic method, cladistic analysis
1. A method of classifying organisms into groups (taxa) based on "recency of common descent" as determined by the possession of shared derived characteristics.
2. A method of classification in which phylogenetic (evolutionary development or history) hypotheses (theories) are the basis for classification and the recency of common ancestry is the sole criterion for grouping taxa.

coulometric analysis
A technique in which the amount of a substance is determined quantitatively by measuring the total amount of electricity required to deplete a solution of the substance.

electrolytic analysis
1. A method of analysis based on determining the amount of chemical change that takes place at an electrode.
2. A basic electrochemical technique for the quantitative analysis of conducting solutions containing oxidizable or reducible material.

The measurement is based on the weight of material plated out onto the electrode.

electron-diffraction analysis, electron diffraction analysis (s) (noun); electron-diffraction analyses, electron diffraction analyses (pl)
1. The study of crystal structure by electron-diffraction methods.
2. The diffraction of electrons when they pass through crystalline matter, useful in the study of the structure of materials.
3. An examination of solid surfaces by observing the diffraction of a stream of electrons on the surfaces.

A diffraction is the bending or spreading out of waves; such as, of sound or light, as they pass around the edge of an obstacle or through a narrow opening as when light passes sharp edges or goes through narrow slits and the rays are deflected and produce fringes of light and dark bands.

ion-beam analysis
The separation of ions according to their mass is accomplished with static magnetic fields, time-varying electric fields, or methods that clock the speeds of ions having the same energies—the time-of-flight method.

Static electric fields cannot separate ions by their mass but do separate them by their energy and so provide an important design element by functioning as an energy filter.

lithofacies analysis
A technique used to identify and interpret deposits of soils in environments in which archaeological deposits are found.

The lithofacies are determined by geometry, vertical sequences, and lateral associations.

Lithofacies models or maps, generalized summaries of sediment characteristics of specific depositional environments, serve as guides to interpretation.

Such a map shows variations in the overall lithologic character of a given stratigraphic unit and its changing composition throughout its geographic extent.
