Definitions for "Normalization"
A database refinement process that organizes a database so that results obtained from queries to the database are always unambiguous.
The process of organizing a database in such a way that no piece of information occurs more than once in the database.
The process of heating a ferrous alloy material to more than the transformation temperature and slowly air-cooling.
The process of converting Unicode text to a particular unique representation.
The process of converting Unicode text into one of several standardized forms in which precomposed and combining characters are used consistently. See Unicode Technical Report #15 for details.
Unicode term normalization
The use of culturally valued means, in order to enable people to live culturally valued lives. Life conditions for persons with mental retardation must be as least as good as that of average citizens. The means to be to used should enable a person to enjoy life conditions, e.g. housing, clothing, education, and health.
A principle employed in the developmental disabilities program area. It refers to using means to establish and/or maintain personal behaviors and characteristics which are as culturally normal as possible.
The effort to make available activities and patterns of everyday life that are as close as possible to the habits of normal, mainstream individuals.
A return to tight party control over Czechoslovak life following the suppression of the Prague Spring ( q.v.) reform movement. okres (pl., okresy) Administrative territorial subdivision of kraj ( q.v.) roughly equivalent to a county in the United States.
In the history of Czechoslovakia, normalization is a name commonly given to the period 1969 to about 1987. It was characterized by initial restoration of the conditions prevailing before the reform period led by Alexander Dubček (1963/1967 - 1968) and subsequent preservation of this new status quo. Normalization is sometimes used in a narrower sense to refer only to the period 1969 to 1971.
A mathematical procedure for adjusting raw test values for fiber-dominated properties to a single (specified) fiber volume content.
In the context of medical PET imaging, we define the process of normalization as the linear scaling of PET data volumes, i.e., by dividing the PET scan's data volume by the ``average Brain value'' calculated on that same scan. This effectively removes global CBF variance since global CBF and regional CBF can vary independently. We then observe a relative (%) measure. This procedure is done currently via a program called normalize_volume, refer to section for more information.
Adjusting sound files so the volume is consistent.
the technique of frequency scaling. Simplifies filter comparisons. The frequency responses are scaled to place the upper edge of the passband at unit frequency. In most cases (for mathematical convenience, if nothing else) the frequency is given in radians/sec. Remember radian/s is equivalent to 2..f Hz (where f is in Hertz). ~~~~~ go back with your browser back button. If lost, go home
Process that allows the direct comparison of spot data derived from different gels.
The comparison of self-similar parts of a system from different scales by enlarging the small one (or shrinking the large one) so they are about the same size. To visualize this, think of enlarging the smallest twigs at the end of a branch of a tree and comparing them to where the branch splits from the trunk.
Reduction to a standard or normal state.
return to a standard state or condition. In political speech it refers to when a state brings its relations with another state back to normal after a period of rupture, as when the U.S. decided to normalize its relations with Vietnam in 1995.
In the Renardus context, the conversion of metadata from a local format to a standardised format conforming to the Renardus Application Profile.
a method by which multiple surveys are brought together under a single mean or average value.
Adjusting an average value of an experimental array equal to that of the baseline array so that the arrays can be compared.
The process of taking emotional responses about a specific topic/survey and contrasting it against the baseline emotional state of the respondent to obtain accurate and projectable emotional responses.
making familiar and meaningful activities or behavior for individuals who depend on others for daily activities.
Actions taken to make a medical experience or setting as comfortable, normal, and familiar as possible, which help children feel more secure and in control.

In , normalization is a process that changes the range of pixel intensity values. Applications include photographs with poor contrast due to glare, for example. Normalization is sometimes called contrast stretching.
Adjustments to revenues, load shapes, etc. to make them represent a “normal” year, without the influence of unusual weather patterns, changes in revenue and expenses, loss or addition of large customers, etc.
The estimation of the change in a counter value over a specified time period.
the changing of data in a file to meet a specific guideline or format; see normalize below
