I more or less wrote this new version from scratch. Please feel free to improve it. There are plenty of avenues left to explore. Mike 22:48, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

proposed move[edit]

I plan to move this to parameterization. The content of the article predominantly uses this spelling, and a move would improve consistency.

If I hear no objections in 2 days, I'll go ahead and move it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shentino (talkcontribs) 02:23, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Dubious claim[edit]

It's nonsense to claim that '-ise' endings are 'British English'. Oxford recommends '-ize' endings for all verbs not derived directly from the French - the latter having suffixes like '-cise' (exercise), -prise (comprise), -mise (compromise), etc. I'm deleting this all-too-common mistake.

links on parametrization techniques[edit]

feynman and schwinger parametrization are not "parametrizations" in the sense discussed in the article. they are methods for solving integrals. --Nomadbl (talk) 15:14, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

recent edit[edit]

I added a few more details. But this page needs a lot more input. The physics / mathematics aspect would benefit from some concrete examples, with formulae and some nice figures. And where are the engineers? They have their own interpretation of parameterization which is quite different from that of physics. This is such an important topic, that deserves a more thorough treatment. Historians of science will no doubt have something interesting to say also. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ibison (talkcontribs) 05:39, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
