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.
6. In chemistry, the identification of constituents of a compound, solution, mixture, etc.
The determination of the quantity or proportion of such constituents or a statement of the results of the analysis.
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.
2. The study of large finite problems.
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.
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.

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.
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.
2. In a computer, the analysis of the meaning of a programming language statement which follows a semantic analysis or the phase in which the compiler adds semantic information to the parse tree and builds the symbol table.
