(Latin: whole, complete)

Ab integro (Latin phrase)
Translation: "From the new."

Starting over again; a fresh start.

beta decay, beta disintegration
The radioactive decay of an atomic nucleus accompanied by emission of a beta particle.

Beta decay is the disintegration of the nucleus of an atom to produce a beta particle, or high-speed electron, and an electron-antineutrino.

During beta decay a neutron in the nucleus changes into a proton, thereby increasing the atomic number by one while the mass number stays the same.

biological integrity
The ability to support and maintain balanced and integrated functionality in the natural habitat of a given region.

The concept is applied primarily in drinking water management.

biomass [integrated] gasification
A composite system used to convert materials of feedstock into gas fuel for an electricity-generating unit that consists of one or more gas turbines, with a portion of the required energy input provided by the exhaust heat of the turbine to increase efficiency.
deintegrate, deintegrates; deintegrated; deintegrating (verbs)
An obsolete term meaning to be completely destroyed by breaking into many small pieces: "When the car exploded in the city as a result of a terrorist scheme, it deintegrated all over the place."

"When an organization or society deintegrates, it ends up as no longer working effectively and so it fails completely."

electric disintegration
Removal of metal by an electric spark acting in the air.

It is primarily used where precise control is not required; such as, for removing broken drills and taps.

electrical disintegration

Electronic Numerical Integrator and Calculator, ENIAC
The first completely digital computer and an ancestor of most computers in use today: The Electronic Numerical Integrator and Calculator (ENIAC) was developed by Dr. John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert during World War II at the Moore School of the University of Pennsylvania.

The massive ENIAC, which weighed 30 tons and filled an entire room, used some 18,000 vacuum tubes, 70,000 resistors, and 10,000 capacitors.

In December, 1945, it solved its first problem regarding the calculations for the hydrogen bomb. After its official unveiling in 1946, it was used to prepare artillery-shell trajectory tables and perform other military and scientific calculations.

entire (adjective) (not comparable)
entirely (adverb) (not comparable)
entirety (s) (noun), entireties (pl)
