  • Time constant — In physics and engineering, the time constant usually denoted by the Greek letter au , (tau), characterizes the frequency response of a first order, linear time invariant (LTI) system. Examples include electrical RC circuits and RL circuits. It… …   Wikipedia

  • RC time constant — In an RC circuit, the value of the time constant (in seconds) is equal to the product of the circuit resistance (in ohms) and the circuit capacitance (in farads), i.e. au = R × C . It is the time required to charge the capacitor, through the… …   Wikipedia

  • Time-domain reflectometry — or TDR is a measurement technique used to determine the characteristics of electrical lines by observing reflected waveforms. Time domain transmissometry (TDT) is an analogous technique that measures the transmitted (rather than reflected)… …   Wikipedia

  • Constant (disambiguation) — A constant is something that does not change, over time or otherwise: a fixed value. In most fields of discourse the term is an antonym of variable , but in mathematical parlance a mathematical variable may sometimes also be called a constant.… …   Wikipedia

  • Constant folding — and constant propagation are related compiler optimizations used by many modern compilers. An advanced form of constant propagation known as sparse conditional constant propagation can more accurately propagate constants and simultaneously remove …   Wikipedia
