Definitions for "Domain"
Keywords:  edu, gov, mil, org, subdomain
an address within the internet computer network, which may be a single computer, a network of computers, or one of a number of accounts on a multiuser computer. The domain specifies the location (host computer) to which communications on the internet are directed. Each domain has a corresponding 32-bit number usually represented by four numbers separated by periods, as Each domain may also have an alphabetical name, usually composed of a name plus an extension separated by a period, as; the alphabetical name is referred to as a domain name.
The text name that corresponds to the IP address of the remotehost. Not all IP address have a domain name.
is the part of the Internet address such as com that shows the type of organization that developed the page or Web site.
The largest unit in the current taxonomic nomenclature. Members of the three domains (Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukarya) are believed to have been evolving independently of each other for at least a billion years. Dominance • In genetic terminology, the ability of one allelic form of a gene to determine the phenotype of a heterozygous individual, in which the homologous chromosome carries both it and a different allele. For example, if and are two allelic forms of a gene, is said to be dominant to if AA diploids and Aa diploids are phenotypically identical and are distinguishable from aa diploids. The allele is said to be recessive.
a category ranked above kingdom in taxonomy; archaea and bacteria are considered by most to be distinct domains, after once being thought to be in the same kingdom (Archaebacteria); archaea were distinguished from other prokaryotes (Eubacteria) before the distinction between these groups of prokaryotes was shown to be more fundamental.
The highest level of biological classification, superseding kingdoms. The three domains of biological organisms are the Bacteria, the Archaea, and the Eukarya. Also used to describe a region of a protein having a distinct function.
the three-dimensional structure within an immunoglobulin which is formed by one of the homology regions of a heavy or light chain.
A compact structural region within a protein with a distinct function.
A region of special biological interest within a single protein sequence. However, a domain may also be defined as a region within the three-dimensional structure of a protein that may encompass regions of several distinct protein sequences that accomplishes a specific function. A domain class is a group of domains that share a common set of well-defined properties or characteristics.
a region within a ferromagnetic material, composed of a number of atoms whose magnetic poles are pointed in the same direction, and which may move together in a coordinated manner when disturbed, as by heating. The direction of polarity of adjacent domains may be different, but may be aligned by a strong external magnetic field.
A small area which possesses strong magnetization.
A substructure in a ferromagnetic material within which all the elementary magnets (electron spins) are held aligned in one direction by interatomic forces; if isolated, a domain would be magnetically saturated.
Dominion; empire; authority.

Ownership of land; an estate or patrimony which one has in his own right; absolute proprietorship; paramount or sovereign ownership.
A ring without zero divisors and in which 1≠0. The noncommutative generalization of integral domain.
In abstract algebra, a domain is a ring with 0 ≠ 1 such that ab = 0 implies that either a = 0 or b = 0 (the zero-product property). That is, it is a nontrivial ring without left or right zero divisors.
A sphere of knowledge, influence, or activity.
A limited region or field marked by some specific property; for example, a field of knowledge, an industry, a specific job, an area of activity, a sphere of influence, or a range of interests. Generally, a system in which a particular set of rules, facts, or assumptions operates.
Sphere of functioning/performance Affective –area encompassing attitudinal skills Cognitive—area encompassing thinking skills Psychomotor –area encompassing motor skills Social—area encompassing interpersonal skills
the field of knowledge, expertise, or interest of a person; as, he had a limited domain of discourse; I can't comment on that, it's outside my domain.
group of taxemes, linked to a social practice. It is common to the different genres specific to discourse that correspond to this practice. There generally exists no polysemy in a given domain.

The set of all first coordinates in a function.
The set of all allowable values that a database attribute may assume.
An aspect of experience which constitutes a permanent feature of mental life, and which is characterised by the opposite interpretations that go to make up a pair of metamotivational states. There are four such domains: means-and-ends (characterised by the telic and paratelic states), rules (characterised by the conformist and negativistic states), transactions (characterised by the mastery and sympathy states), and relationships (characterised by the autic and alloic state). For example, one is always aware of ones purposes and the activities that one is undertaking to achieve those purposes, and these make up the means-and-ends domain. But these purposes and activities can enter experience in the two opposite ways defined by the telic and paratelic states respectively. The identification of domains is an essential part of structural-phenomenology.
A set of objects sharing a common characteristic or abiding by common rules.
The Internet is divided into smaller sets known as domains, the most common endings. The more common of those endings are displayed below
A group of related systems, programs, processes, or activities which are linked through a common set of problems and solutions, disciplines, existing systems, and to one degree or another, shared purpose. A simpler, more colloquial term for domain (especially in enterprises) is "subject matter".

An ecological unit in the ecoregion planning and analysis scale of the National Hierarchical Framework corresponding to subcontinental divisions of broad climatic similarity that are affected by latitude and global atmospheric conditions. (ECOMAP 1993.)
A domain is a fundamental object which executes some code (program) and contains some data and some keys the program can reference. Domains are durable; they remain in existence until explicitly destroyed. A programmer can construct an object from one or more domains. A domain can be thought of as a stylized virtual machine having its own memory and registers and exerting authority over various resources. In KeyKOS for the S/370, a domain consists of three nodes: a root node, a registers node, and a keys node.
A domain is the execution context that contains a running virtual machine. The relationship between virtual machines and domains on Xen is similar to that between programs and processes in an operating system: a virtual machine is a persistent entity that resides on disk (somewhat like a program). When it is loaded for execution, it runs in a domain. Each domain has a domain ID.

The domain of a linear transformation is the vector space on which the transformation acts. Thus, if T(v) = w, then v is a vector in the domain and w is a vector in the range, which in turn is contained in the codomain. Examples: The domain of the transformation T:R3→R5 is R3 The matrix A=[1,2;2,1;1,1] (three rows and two columns) induces a linear map from R2 to R3, with domain R2
