Investment style, which seeks to replicate index benchmarks in equity and bond markets.
portfolio strategy in which the investment manager seeks to track the performance of a stated benchmark by maintaining a portfolio that mirrors the benchmark's. Indexing, also referred to as a passive investment approach, is in contrast to an active management approach (see active fund management).
Indexing is a technique used to quickly select candidate clauses of a predicate for a specific goal. In most Prolog systems, including SWI-Prolog, indexing is done on the first argument of the head. If this argument is instantiated to an atom, integer, float or compound term with functor, hashing is used quickly select all clauses of which the first argument may unify with the first argument of the goal.
The process of filtering a set of potentially matching clauses of a predicate given a goal. For interpreted and compiled code, indexing is done on the principal functor of the first argument. Indexing is coarse wrt. large integers and floats.
The process of tying wages, taxes, social benefits payments, prices, interest rates or loan values to a an economic index, usually of prices.
Increases to monthly pension amounts based on the annual increase in the cost of living. Once your pension payments have begun, and you have attained age 65, the lifetime portion will be adjusted each October by up to 60% of the increase in the Canadian consumer price index. These cost of living adjustments begin the first October after you reach age 65. If the cost of living decreases, the pension amount remains the same –– it does not decrease.
Tying the commodity price in a contract to other published prices, such as spot prices for gas or alternate fuels, or general indexes like the Consumer Price Index or Producer Price Index.
Identifying the subjects covered by a publication using a list of subject headings or thesauri, and listing them.
The process of evaluating information entities and creating indexing terms, normally subject or topical terms, that aid in finding and accessing the entity. Indexing means describing or identifying a document in terms of subject content. An indexing language consists of vocabulary and syntax rules. Index terms may be in natural language or controlled vocabulary or a classification notation.
The analysis of a document and the expression of its subjects with a specific indexing language (e.g., a classification scheme).

the process by which a turntable bridge is aligned with approach or stall tracks. This process can be automated by using DCC decoders.
In VCRs, the ability to place electronic "bookmarks" on a tape, making it easier to find the beginnings of taped segments. Automatic indexing means that every time you start recording, the VCR places an index mark. Manual indexing lets you insert a marker at any time during recording.
The ability of a component to electrically mark a point on a tape or disc during recording for later access.
Adjusting of values over time to reflect the impact of inflation.
The amount by which the periodic payments increase annually to account for the effects of inflation.

From Portable Network Graphics (PNG) Specification (Second Edition) ( 2003-11-10) representing an image by a palette , an alpha table , and an array of indices pointing to entries in the palette and alpha table.
The systematic arrangement of entries designed for users to locate information in a document. There are many types of indexes, from cumulative indexes for journals to computer database indexes. An indexer reads the page proofs, lists headings and subheadings, and annotates the location of each pertinent reference. After completing a rough index, the indexer edits it for structure, clarity, and consistency, formats it to specifications, proofreads it, and submits it. Although software advances and effective multipurposing methods can automate indexes, multi-level indexes require human interaction to reference pages in which a concept is discussed without a specific keyword appearing.
the practice of creating a comprehensive yet concise set of "entry points" into the different concepts contained in a piece of information. This can mean the index in the back of a textbook (which should have an entry for every major concept in the book, as well as redundant references when there are different ways to describe those concepts). It can also mean the different concepts in a journal article (in which case a database like MEDLINE serves as the index, rather than there being an index in the article itself). Without indexing much of the world's intellectual output remains unusable because it is too hard to find literature relating to the concepts you are interested in, and too time consuming (nay, impossible) to read all of it yourself.
Determining presence of disease in a plant by removing buds or other parts for inoculation of a susceptible indicator plant that exhibits specific symptoms of a transmissible disease.
A procedure to determine whether a given plant is infected by a virus. It involves the transfer of a bud, scion, sap etc. from one plant to one or more kinds of indicator plants sensitive to the virus. ()

The process whereby the text index for a text table is created. The text index specifies the documents that contain occurrences of any given indexed word.
the process of building an index, such as when a collection of text documents is analyzed to automatically identify its word or word stems that are then recorded and made to point to locations in the collection where they occur
