Definitions for "Parameter"
A constant number which is part of a theory, function, or calculation, whose value is not determined by the form of the theory or equation itself, and may in some cases be arbitrary assigned.
A term applied to some characteristic magnitude whose value, invariable as long as one and the same function, curve, surface, etc., is considered, serves to distinguish that function, curve, surface, etc., from others of the same kind or family.
Any constant number which is required to calculate values of observed phenomena according to a theory, but the value of which must be determined by experiment, and cannot be calculated from the fundamental assumptions of the theory. In general, a theory which has a large number of parameters, though it may accurately predict experimental results, is considered as having less explanatory power and as being less esthetically pleasing than a theory with fewer parameters.
A characteristic or element, especially one used as a criterion for evaluation or judgment; as, a useful parameter for determining efficiency.
In epidemiology, a measurable characteristic of a population. In economics, a constant in a model or formula.
Set For molecular mechanics force fields, empirically or theoretically derived force constants and structural values applying to spcific bonded combinations of atoms (each described by an atom type).
Context A term in Prolog and CG theory Definition - CG theory Either a formal parameter or an actual parameter of a lambda expression. Definition - Prolog Either a formal parameter or an actual parameter of a predicate.
a formal definition of an input to a method
1. A PL/SQL construct used to pass information to a subprogram. For example, in the subprogram call MYPROC (x),x is a parameter.
a constant in the equation of a curve that can be varied to yield a family of similar curves
a fixed object in any equation
a named constant
One of the ways that languages can depart from a hypothesized universal linguistic structure (e.g., omission of the subject in certain sentences).
Innate hypothesis regarding the forms which any language may take; an aspect of Chomsky's genetically-based Universal Grammar view of language acquisition. Exposure to a given language results in a particular setting of the parameters for each dimension of syntax.
In Universal Grammar theory the variation between languages is seen as a question of setting values for a small number of parameters, for example Italian sets the pro-drop parameter to have a value of pro-drop and thus allows sentences without subject vende (he sells), while German sets the value to non-pro-drop and thus has subjects in all sentences Er spricht (he speaks).

Keywords:  subset, prolog, disallowed, dtd, scope
A subset of the group of evaluations that constitute each element of an observation; e.g., sky condition is an element, sky cover and ceiling are parameters.
entity an entity whose scope of use is within the document prolog (ie., the external subset/DTD or internal subset). Parameter entities are disallowed within the document instance.

Additional information provided in the link to the FAQ search page restricting users to specified levels of the FAQ system. Parameters are attached to the web address of the search page in the href attribute of the a tag. The parameters allow you to restrict the user's entrance to the search page to a specific department (category), topic (sc), subtopic (tc), or question (id).

An operational aspect of an LXE device that is configurable by selecting an option presented through a user option.
Any aspect of a musical sound that can be varied (e.g., pitch, duration, volume, tone color, overtones, attack, decay, intensity, etc.).
A user-adjustable quantity that governs some aspect of a device's performance. Normally, the settings for all of the parameters that make up a synthesizer patch can be changed by the user and stored in memory, but the parameters themselves are defined by the operating system and cannot be altered.

The term parameter refers to one of two things. Firstly a parameter is any information that follows a JACL command, keyword or property. If multiple parameters are specified, they must be separated by white space. The keyword parameter is also used to define a mapping between an HTML form parameter and a JACL container.
An input form or screen used to select run options and control processing.
Number or code entered to specify exactly what a given instruction is to do. Parameters are an integral part of the datalogger's program instructions. Common parameter entries include reps, measurement channels, measurement ranges, input locations, etc. Once the instruction number has been entered in a Program Table, the datalogger will prompt for the parameters by displaying the parameter number in the ID Field of the display.
