#### Analysation

Alternative form of analyzation

#### Analysis

Analysis is the process of breaking a complex topic or substance into smaller parts in order to gain a better understanding of it. The technique has been applied in the study of mathematics and logic since before Aristotle (384–322 B.C.), though analysis as a formal concept is a relatively recent development.The word comes from the Ancient Greek ἀνάλυσις (analysis, "a breaking-up" or "an untying;" from ana- "up, throughout" and lysis "a loosening").

#### Analysis

Detailed examination of the elements or structure of something

Statistical analysis

An analysis of popular culture

Other schools of analysis have evolved out of the original disciplines established by Freud

#### Analysis

#### Analysis

The separation of a substance into its constituent elements to determine either their nature (qualitative analysis) or their proportions (quantitative analysis).

#### Analysis

The stated findings of such a separation or determination.

#### Analysis

A branch of mathematics principally involving differential and integral calculus, sequences, and series and concerned with limits and convergence.

#### Analysis

The method of proof in which a known truth is sought as a consequence of a series of deductions from that which is the thing to be proved.

#### Analysis

(Linguistics) The use of function words such as prepositions, pronouns, or auxiliary verbs instead of inflectional endings to express a grammatical relationship; for example, the cover of the dictionary instead of the dictionary's cover.

#### Analysis

Psychoanalysis.

#### Analysis

Systems analysis.

#### Analysis

(countable) Decomposition into components in order to study (a complex thing, concept, theory etc.).

#### Analysis

(countable) The result of such a process.

#### Analysis

The mathematical study of functions, sequences, series, limits, derivatives and integrals.

Mathematical analysis

#### Analysis

Proof by deduction from known truths.

#### Analysis

The process of breaking down a substance into its constituent parts, or the result of this process.

#### Analysis

The analytical study of melodies, harmonies, sequences, repetitions, variations, quotations, juxtapositions, and surprises.

#### Analysis

Psychoanalysis.

#### Analysis

A resolution of anything, whether an object of the senses or of the intellect, into its constituent or original elements; an examination of the component parts of a subject, each separately, as the words which compose a sentence, the tones of a tune, or the simple propositions which enter into an argument. It is opposed to synthesis.

#### Analysis

The separation of a compound substance, by chemical processes, into its constituents, with a view to ascertain either (a) what elements it contains, or (b) how much of each element is present. The former is called qualitative, and the latter quantitative analysis.

#### Analysis

The tracing of things to their source, and the resolving of knowledge into its original principles.

#### Analysis

#### Analysis

The process of ascertaining the name of a species, or its place in a system of classification, by means of an analytical table or key.

#### Analysis

#### Analysis

#### Analysis

The use of closed-class words instead of inflections: e.g., `the father of the bride' instead of `the bride's father'

#### Analysis

A branch of mathematics involving calculus and the theory of limits; sequences and series and integration and differentiation

#### Analysis
