parametric +‎ -isation

Examples

  • This technique is called parameterisation and is adopted quite generally: when one collides with a seemingly true contradiction, A & ¬A, it is a common strategy to treat the suspected dialetheia A, or some of its parts, as having different meanings, that is to say, precisely as ambiguous (maybe just contextually ambiguous).

    Dialetheism

  • A parameterisation is a simplified tunable model of a physical process.

  • A parameterisation is a simplified model of a physical process, not just a constant that can be tuned.

  • I once had a student, who spent four years building a new physics parameterisation for a model.

  • If the extensions of our ordinary predicates are constrained by our intuitions, and such intuitions turn out to be inconsistent, a good semantic account of the situation may well have to reflect this fact, instead of destroying it by means of some regimentation (e.g. via the usual parameterisation, or distinction of respects).

    Dialetheism

  • The orthodox way out of the paradoxical situation, as formulated, e.g., by Russell, 1903, has it that motion is the mere occupation of different places at different times (this is, clearly, another case of attempted parameterisation).

    Dialetheism

  • An a priori claim that contradictions can always be avoided by parameterisation begs the question against the dialetheist: sometimes parameterisation may be the best thing to do, but independent justification is required on each occasion.

    Dialetheism

  • In any case, parameterisation as such is hardly an argument against the rival of the LNC.

    Dialetheism

  • Such a parameterisation is based on the physical understanding we have, not just a wild guess.

  • Gray also claims that the overestimation of warming in the GCMs is largely a function of errors in cloud parameterisation which are multiplied many times over.
