Definitions for "matching"
Biometric data (e.g. fingerprints) are matched to another sample to confirm a person’s identity (authentication). For example, BioCert biometric systems use optic scanners to collect fingerprint minutiae, then create mathematical templates based on that information for storage. New input fingerprints are scanned and compared to the stored samples. If the minutiae matching threshold is met, the person is authenticated.
The comparison of biometric templates to determine their degree of similarity or correlation.
The process of comparing biometric templates or images to determine their degree of similarity (a score). If the score exceeds a given threshold, the matching is positive, and a strong correlation between a person and the related template or the image could be established.
Adopting some aspects of another person's communication style for the purpose of building rapport. For example, matching their posture. Matching is not mimicry, which is conscious exact copying of another person's behavior.
Adopting characteristics of another person's outputs (behavior, words, etc.) to enhance rapport.
matching is adopting parts of another persons behaviour i.e. particular gestures, facial expressions, forms of speech, tone of voice etc. If subtly done it helps create a feeling of being similar or alike between people. Mismatching can be either conscious or unconscious behaviour. It has the effect of reducing rapport between people because a mismatcher does things differently from others, breathing at a different rate, speaking at a different tempo and so on. Mismatching can be a normal prt of focuses on difference.

Choosing a “control group” (the group who doesn’t receive the treatment or other thing being tested) who is like the “experimental group” (who does receive the treatment); the groups would be alike in gender, age, race, and severity of disability, for example.
The process of making a study group and a comparison (control) group comparable with respect to certain factors that are not part of the main hypothesis. Matching is often done on such characteristics as age, sex, race, income group, etc. and is included into the study design to prevent the matched variables from affecting the estimate of risk and ultimately the conclusions of the study.
A method utilized to create comparison groups, in which groups or individuals are matched to those in the treatment group based on characteristics felt to be relevant to program outcomes.
A matching in a graph is a set of edges such that every vertex of the graph is on at most one edge in the set.
