quantization

- The
__division__of a quantity or phenomenon, such as a__wave__, with an infinitely variable__range__of values into one or more ranges with finite values, each called a__quantized value__. For example, the conversion of an__analog input__into a digital output. Since the number of subranges created can not be infinite, there will always be a__loss__, however minor, of information, called__quantization error__. - The
__division__of a__range__of values into labeled subranges. For example, any number between 1 and 30 is a, between 31 and 60 is b, between 61 and 90 is c, and so on. - The description of an interval of values as a
__discrete__number possible values. For example, anything occurring between 12 AM day one and 12 AM day two, being recorded as occurring on day one, regardless of the hour. - The
__process__of applying__quantum mechanics__or quantum theory to something.
