A contraction of "Binary Digit"; the single unit of information in a computer, typically represented as a 0 or 1.
Error from attempting to represent a number that is too large.
Error from attempting to represent a nuber that is too precise The value is rounded.
Data with values that change continuously, or smoothly, over time. Some examples of analog data include music, colors of a painting, or position of a finite set of possible values.
Data that changes discretely ghrough a finite set of possible values.
A process for creating a digital representation of analog data by measuring the analog data at regular intervals called samples.
A process for reducing the number of bits needed to represent something without losing any inforation. This process is reversible.
A process for reducing the nuber of bits needed to represent something inwhich some information is lot or thrown away. This process is not reversible.
A way of representing information usning only two options.

A process for reducing the number of bits needed to represent a piece of information.
A system for representing numbers using combinations of the digits 0-9.
A work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a piece of writing or a design to which one has rights and for which one may apply for a patent, copyright, tradmark, etc.
