Nonfiction Usage Journalism UsageNews: May 1, 2002 - Headline: May 2, 2002 - 'Lower 48 States' and 'Synergy' Explained. Excerpt: RS: Synergy makes a data analysis and graphing program used in such places as big laboratories and universities. Little did the dozen employees know that the name they chose back in the early nineteen-nineties would become hot business jargon.Patent UsageFunction graphing method with detection of discontinuities: Patented by Michael E. Hosea on December 1, 2000. Abstract: A function graphing method for detecting discontinuities. The method involves scanning piecewise linear segments of the function graph and detecting large changes in the angle between segments. When such changes in angle are found, a bisection routine is performed to determine whether a discontinuity exists between the end points of a segment.Message encoding with irregular graphing: Patented by Michael G. Luby, Michael D. Mitzenmacher, Mohammad Amin Shokrollahi, Daniel A. Spielman and Volker Stemann on November 6, 1997. Abstract: An encoded message, includes a plurality of data items and a plurality of redundant data items. Each of the plurality of redundant data items corresponds to a number of the data items, with respective redundant data items corresponding to different numbers of data items.Method and system for theory of constraints buffer graphing, tracking and management: Patented by Todd R. Hayes, Ed van Loenen and Michael W. Andrews on March 8, 1999. Abstract: A graphical method and system of tracking projects managed in accordance with Theory of Constraints project management techniques. A graph of project and feeding chain buffer consumption is constructed for at a glance project status review by management. Alternate buffer consumption models may be utilized.Method for monitoring advanced separation and/or ion exchange processes: Patented by Thomas D. Wolfe on December 7, 1998. Abstract: A method of monitoring advanced separation and/or ion exchange processes through the collection of localized data. The data is manipulated to generate preconfigured performance, maintenance, quality assurance, quality control, regulatory, cost reports, performance graphing and historical trends. The data is collected from sensors located at an equipment site and transferred to a remote located by use of the Internet, further all data received and used for generation of reports is also accessible by Internet connection.Method of making a needlework graph: Patented by Nancy A. Claytor on August 7, 1992. Abstract: This invention provides a graphing system that enables an average person interested in reproducing a colored design by needlework, for which there is no existing graph, to quickly and easily graph the colored design for reproduction by such needlework as cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting, smocking, duplicate stitch, or knitting.Multi-variate Data Related Presentation and Analysis: Patented by Richard A. Van koningsveld on December 24, 2002. Abstract: A recursively partitioned/nested geometric structure is employed to graphically present and/or facilitate analysis of multi-variate data, including functions of multi-dimensional variables (106). Visual attributes are associated with appropriate ones of the regions within the geometric structure, in accordance with determined graphing values (102). In one embodiment, the data are normalized, comprising relative coordinate values, and encoded into polynary strings. Processing is advantageously performed using the polynary strings (104).System and methods for automated graphing of spreadsheet information: Patented by Philippe R. Kahn on October 3, 1995. Abstract: An electronic spreadsheet system of the present invention includes an intelligent graphing module for automatically selecting a graph type based on a user's own data. Methods are described for determining the level of complexity present in a user's data and for automatically selecting a preferred graph type based
