equalization

[‚ē·kwə·lə′zā·shən]
(electronics)
The effect of all frequency-discriminating means employed in transmitting, recording, amplifying, or other signal-handling systems to obtain a desired overall frequency response. Also known as frequency-response equalization.

equalization

(1) In communications, techniques used to reduce distortion and compensate for signal loss (attenuation) over long distances.

(2) In audio, equalization raises and lowers frequencies to yield a desired sound. A graphics equalizer is equipment with a sliding lever for each of several frequency bands (the more bands, the finer the tuning). The user adjusts each frequency according to the music requirements (speakers, environment, etc.), as well as personal taste. When adjusting audio in the computer, software-based equalizers perform the same functions as stand-alone hardware.

The stories of this type are referred to as Equalize.
Type of story: Compare, Equalize, Change, and Change-Compare
Of the 39 problems that we have considered, 9 are of the class Change, 6 of Equalize, 6 of Compare and 18 of Change-Compare.
A research study was carried out among several groups of students to contrast Change-Compare problems with Change, Equalize and Compare problems, and to establish the influence of the expression of the variation and the difference, as well as the effect of the problem characteristics.
6 only differ in the expression of the Variation; analogously, with Equalize 5 and Compare 5 problems.
As shown in Table 5, the two problems, Equalize 6 and Equalize 1, with the unknown as referent, do not have low success rates.
The Change and Change-Compare problems have the same scheme s + v = e, but the expression of the variation is different; also the Compare problems and the Equalize problems have the scheme s + d = b, but the difference is expressed in different ways.
So, it can be said that the IR-characteristic is a particularly negative condition with Change-Compare problems but of less consequence in Compare or Equalize problems.
1995) consider it convenient that the knowledge of the different classes of problems form part of the normal school education curriculum, and that students should be able to identify them as Change, Equalize or Compare.
Equalize 5: If P earns 2 pta, then he will have the same as R.
Equalize 6: If C loses 5 pta, then he will have the same as A.
The four classes of problems analyzed in our research study (pta = pesetas) Scheme: s + v = e Scheme: s + d = b Expression: Change Equalize Simple Before Juan had 4 pta.
