Definitions for "deviation"
The act of deviating; a wandering from the way; variation from the common way, from an established rule, etc.; departure, as from the right course or the path of duty.
The voluntary and unnecessary departure of a ship from, or delay in, the regular and usual course of the specific voyage insured, thus releasing the underwriters from their responsibility.
the difference between an expected value of an observation or measurement and the actual value.
The state or result of having deviated; a transgression; an act of sin; an error; an offense.
Deviation is a variation from an established dimension, position, standard, or value. In ISO usage, it is the algebraic difference between a size (actual, maximum, or minimum) and the corresponding basic size. The term deviation does not necessarily indicate an error. (See also Error.)
The disturbing effect of a vessel's magnetic field upon her compass.
Movement of a body part towards the extreme in its range of motion; usually associated with risk of injury.
Movement of a body part away from the neutral position for that joint/limb. Typically used to describe wrist positions. For example, ulnar deviation of the wrist describes the movement of the wrist away from a straight position towards the baby finger. Deviation of a limb towards the end of a joint's range of motion is considered a risk factor for musculoskeletal injury.
In radial units, a figure multiplied by the radial exemplar's squared distance from the input pattern to generate the unit's activation level, before submission to the activation function.
the distance of a value in a population (or sample) from the mean value of the population (or sample).
The measure of individual variation in a population.
indicates the absolute relative mean deviation (i.e. 0.08 is equivalent to $0.08).
The amount by which a quantity differs from its nominal value. For our purposes, the amount by which a frequency differs from the nominal or specified frequency.
The process of varying the frequency of an RF signal to superimpose the audio to be transmitted. Also referred to as modulation or FM modulation. Deviation is also used to refer to the amount that the frequency of the RF signal is varied; usually expressed as a peak deviation in kHz.
In frequency modulation, the instantaneous excursion of the carrier frequency due to modulation
Variation from a specified dimension or requirement, usually defining the upper and lower limits.
The maximum frequency variation of an FM signal.
The variation or deflection from a straight line or course.
a turning aside (of your course or attention or concern); "a diversion from the main highway"; "a digression into irrelevant details"; "a deflection from his goal"
A vessel going to some other port or taking some other courses than described in the policy of marine insurance.
A vessel going to some other point or taking some course other than that described in the Bill of Lading.
The angle between the paths of a ray of light before and after passing through one or more lenses.
Angle of the well or toolstring away from vertical.
the angle between the wellbore axis (in the direction of the end, or bottom, of the well) and the downward vertical. Deviation values are always positive. Also called Inclination.
Bending or turning in another direction. The deviation of visual axes in strabismus (squint), the deviation of a ray which is refracted at an interface.
