Sociology and economy[edit]


  • Indefinite integration, in calculus, the process of calculating indefinite integrals, also known as antiderivatives
  • Integration, in mathematics, the computation of a definite integral, a fundamental concept of calculus, which allows, among many other uses, computing areas and averaging continuous functions
  • Numerical integration, the numerical methods for computing, usually with computers, definite integrals and, more generally, solutions of differential equations
  • Symbolic integration, the computation, mostly on computers, of antiderivatives and definite integrals in term of formulas

Electronics engineering[edit]

  • Integrated circuit, an electronic circuit whose components are manufactured in one flat piece of semiconductor material
  • System integration, the engineering practices and procedures for assembling large and complicated systems from less-complicated units, especially subsystems


  • Pre-integration complex or retroviral integration, in biology
  • DNA integration performed by a specific class of recombinase enzymes ("integrases"). Recognition of a target sequence triggers site-specific integration of ("crossover" with) a compatible "donor sequence"
