noun, Statistics. 1. the rejection region for the null hypothesis in the testing of a hypothesis. noun 1. that part of a statistical distribution in which the probability of a given hypothesis is less than the chosen significance level, so that the hypothesis would be rejected
- Critical section
A non-re-entrant piece of code that can only be executed by one process at a time. It will usually terminate in bounded time and a process will only have to wait a bounded time to enter it. Some synchronisation mechanism is required at the entry and exit of the critical section to ensure exclusive use.
noun, Physics. 1. the temperature of a pure element or compound at a critical point. noun 1. the temperature of a substance in its critical state. A gas can only be liquefied by pressure alone at temperatures below its critical temperature critical temperature n. The temperature above which a gas cannot be liquefied, regardless of […]
noun, Physics. 1. the state of a pure element or compound when it is at a critical point. noun 1. the state of a substance in which two of its phases have the same temperature, pressure, and volume Also called critical point critical state The state of matter of a substance at its critical point.
