Definitions for **"Linear"**

Of or pertaining to a line; consisting of lines; in a straight direction; lineal.

Like a line; narrow; of the same breadth throughout, except at the extremities; as, a linear leaf.

(see: Leaf Shapes graphic.)

A polynomial of first degree.

Pertaining to or represented by lines.

A process is linear if doubling the starting conditions doubles the outcome. For example, the number of new schistosome infections establishing in mice is directly proportional to the number of cercaria the mice are exposed to, over a certain range. Outside this range, the response is nonlinear: there is no longer a direct proportionality. Linear differential equations are ones whose solutions are linear. This property allows us to solve linear differential equations completely: most nonlinear differential equations can't be solved analytically.

A general term for a system that has an output directly proportional to the input signal.

A process in which inputs generate proportionate output, or a process in which there is no memory.

Aside from its geometric meaning, linear describes systems in which an output is directly proportional to an input. In particular, a linear elastic system is one in which the internal displacements are (at equilibrium) directly proportional to applied forces.

A technique in painting concentrating on the lines and contours of a figure.

Emphasizing contour and outline.

A picture where importance has been attached to contours or outlines.

gradlinig, von Punkt A nach Punkt B, siehe Lexikon

Thinking in a step-by-step analytical and logical fashion; contrasted with holistic, i.e. thinking in terms of complex interrelated patterns; as, linear thinkers.

A programming method characterized by short steps of instruction, constructed response, and a maximum amount of overt activity. The least desirable programming technique. (see branching)

adj - Long in one dimension, thin in every other dimension. Examples of linear objects are pencils, rivers, poles, strings, etc. See the chart under tetraspace.

of or in or along or relating to a line; involving a single dimension; "a linear foot"

measured lengthwise; "cost of lumber per running foot"

an interactive sequence designed to be played from beginning to end without branching (qv).

Linear projects play from beginning to endand do not include buttons. An example of a linear project is a slide show or video. Small linear projects with less than 100 objects may be created in one scene and then exported as a QuickTime or AVI file.

A motion video or film sequence designed to be played from beginning to end without stops or branching. Linear usually refers to traditional video or films which are meant to be watched by the viewer passively from beginning to end without interaction.

The Fare Calculation area on an ATB.

Melodic; horizontal lines.

A linear system is a system which satisfies the conditions of superposition and homogeneity

A light setting, which causes the light to fall off in a linear manner. Lumen Luminance Luminosity

An adventure where the players follow a strict series of encounters.

Several times longer than wide, usually refers to very narrowly shaped leaves or fruits.

Shaped like a line.

A fancy word meaning line like or along a line.

The word linear comes from the Latin word linearis, which means created by lines.

Relating to, or consisting of a line.

1. Relating to line or lines. 2. In relation to length only, extended in a line.

A quality making use of line in painting, sculpture and design; relating to movement direction in composition, or the actual use of line elements.

sequential, from start to end. Detailed description

Resembles or looks like a line.
