Definitions for "Glauber"
Glauber is a discovery system type of artificial intelligence that is used to discover new chemical theories based on empirical evidence and the systematic measurement of related data. It is named after Johann Rudolph Glauber, a chemist in the 18th century whose work helped to develop acid-base theory. Glauber was designed by Pat Langley as part of his work on discovery heuristics in an attempt to have a computer automatically review a host of values and characteristics and make independent analyses from them.
Glauber is a small lunar crater that is located just to the north of the large Mendeleev walled-plain, on the Moon's far side. This crater lies just outside the irregular rim of Mendeleev, but well within the outer skirt of ejecta. It is a circular crater with a rim that has not been significantly eroded.
