Its something inbetween a content page a list of dictdefs and a disambiguation page. As such, it is pretty useless.

We have to decide what this page should be, if you are willing to provide enough content to turn this into a contentpage I'm very happy. Markus Schmaus 02:24, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

What is the opposite word to discrete?[edit]

Process based industry should be explained when you provide examples for discrete industry. Research & Development in a pharmaceutical vertical could be a good example of process methodology where as automotive component industry could be a good example of discrete methodology —Preceding unsigned comment added by 59.92.170.102 (talk) 16:29, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Opposite to discrete: "continuous-domain"[edit]

For example, what's the continuous analogue of "discrete function"? It's not a continuous function, because that's a specific property with a different meaning. Often "continuous-time" is used for this purpose. But the domain is not always time. A good compromise is "continuous-domain". A continuous-domain function. Unambiguous and immediately meaningful. (By the way, it is emphatically the role of encyclopaedians to disambiguate terminology from conflicting areas.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Evgeni Sergeev (talkcontribs) 13:52, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
