Definitions for "Continuum "
The name used for the combination of all colors an object, such as the Sun, emits, and also for the broad variation from color to color in how much light is emitted. (Course Material/Radiography/EquipmentMaterials/xraysources.htm)
The continuous spectrum that we would measure from a body if no spectral lines were present.
The characteristic spectrum of an object with no absorption or emission features. For some objects this spectrum will approximate closely to a black-body spectrum, at least over a short range of wavelength.

(con TIN u um) A diagram that illustrates degrees of difference between two extremes. For example, a continuum might show degrees of heights between the shortest and the tallest objects such as mountains, buildings, trees, or whatever is being measured.
Continuum theories or models explain variation as involving a gradual quantitative transition without abrupt changes or discontinuities. It can be contrasted with 'categorical' models which propose qualitatively different states.

Continuum is a continuous integration server. It makes sure that software always builds and works as expected. Continuous integration allows software projects to find and identify problems as soon as code is in the source control system. It currently supports building Apache Maven v1 and v2 projects.

A continuous line between negative-neutral-positive degrees of change, like between beginning-middle-end.
We imagine a continuum as a line with two ends that are limits (stops). As we move across the line, the description of something changes so that one thing becomes something else, but we cannot say exactly where on the line one thing changes into another thing. For example, in schools, students are often graded on a continuum such as excellent…good…satisfactory…improving…needs much improvement.175

A domain is regarded as a continuum with respect to a specified extensive quantity (e.g., a continuum of mass), if a value of the corresponding intensive quantity (e.g., mass density), can be assigned to every point of that domain.
