The measurement from the heel (or toe) of one footprint to the heel (or toe) of the subsequent footprint. Distance between footfalls plus the length of the foot.

(n.) a term derived from the concept of walking or striding through data from one location to the next. The term is often used in relation to vector storage. A mathematical vector is represented in a computer as an array of numbers. Most computers use contiguous storage of vectors, locating them by the address of the first word and by the vector length. Many applications in linear algebra however, require load and store of vectors with components that do not reside contiguously in memory, such as the rows of a matrix stored in column order. The row vectors are spaced in memory by a distance or stride of the leading dimension of the array representing the matrix. Some vector computers allow vector fetching and storing to occur with randomly stored vectors. An index vector locates successive components. This is often useful in storing the nonzero elements of a sparse vector.

Distance covered by an athlete's leg cycle while running.

A unit of measurement on Mer. A stride is the length for a normal man to take a step. 1 stride = approx. 3 feet.

The distance traveled in a particular gait, measured from the spot where one hoof hits the ground to where it next lands. Ten to twelve feet is the normal length of stride at a canter, for example.

The amount of ground the horse covers in one “step” is called the horses stride. At the canter the average single stride of a horse is 12 feet. The distances of the grand prix courses are set accordingly.

A stride value is used to select a hyperslab from an array. If is a 10 by 10 array, then d[0:2:9][0:2:9] is a hyperslab consisting of every second point in both dimensions.

Manner of going. Also, distance covered between successive imprints of the same hoof.

Two steps right -left-right (R-L-R) or left-right-left (L-R-L) that is the distance between one footprint and the next footprint made by that same foot.

a step in walking or running

the distance covered by a step; "he stepped off ten paces from the old tree and began to dig"

walk with long steps; "He strode confidently across the hall"

cover or traverse by taking long steps; "She strode several miles towards the woods"

a complete movement from the point of one foot striking the ground, leaving it, then striking the ground again

The amount of ground the horse covers in one "step" is called the horse's stride. At the canter, the average single stride of the horse is 12 feet. Jumper riders will often walk the distance between obstacles on a course to determine how many strides their horses will take to cover that distance.

The length of a single element in a table or array.

The amount of ground a horse covers when each foot has touched the ground once.

Number of array elements which gets stepped through as an operation repeats.

Cycle of movements that is completed when the horse's legs regain their initial positions. At the trot, for example, this would include a beat (footfall of one diagonal pair), a period of suspension, another beat, and another period of suspension. Length of stride refers to the amount of ground covered by the above entire sequence.

manner of going. Also distance covered after each foot has touched the ground once.

The increment used to step through array storage to select the vector or matrix elements from the array.

The distance between the memory addresses of array elements that are touched in a loop. A stride-one loop touches successive array elements, and hence scans memory consecutively. This uses cache memory most efficiently because all of a cache line is used before the next cache line is fetched, and the loop never returns to a cache line after using it. Strides greater than one are less efficient in memory use, but are easy to create accidentally given Fortran array semantics. The compiler can sometimes use loop nest optimization or loop interchange to shorten the stride.

The spacing between elements.

Distance between consecutive prints of the same foot in a track, measured from the same point on each foot

Sign cut measurement from tip of toe of one normal walking step to back of heel of the next successive step.

the distance between each step. Must be normal length.

The amount of ground covered by a horse in one step at the canter. The average horse's stride is 12 feet. Distances between fences are set accordingly by the course designer.

The distance (in bytes) between the two consecutive elements along an axis. Numpy expresses strides in bytes because the distance between elements is not necessarily a multiple of the element size.

Constant amount of memory space between data elements where the elements are stored noncontiguously. Strided data are sent and received using derived data types.

The number of data units, words for example, between successive accesses to an array of data.

A term derived from the concept of walking (striding) through the data from one noncontiguous location to the next. If data are to be accessed as a number of evenly spaced, discontiguous blocks, then stride is the distance between the beginnings of successive blocks. For example, consider accessing rows of a column-stored matrix. The rows have elements that are spaced in memory by a stride of N, the dimension of the matrix.

A large step forward or back.

The part of an interleaved array that defines the length of a vertex.
