Definition of discretization in US English:


(British discretisation)


  • See discretize

    • ‘The spatial discretization used finite differences, and the method of lines was employed to reduce the partial differential equations to a system of ordinary differential equations.’
    • ‘To improve the accuracy of that extrapolation, we place a high premium on finding improved algorithms that reduce discretization artifacts.’
    • ‘The time discretization has been achieved by an implicit finite-difference scheme, thus guaranteeing an intrinsic numerical stability.’
    • ‘For example, engineers use multigrid methods to analyze numeric properties of physical phenomena using a hierarchy of grid discretization.’
    • ‘Analyses all required a planar mathematical discretization of a region containing a prescribed number of cells with prescribed orientations.’
