parity
n 1: (obstetrics) the number of live-born children a woman has
delivered; *“the parity of the mother must be
considered”*; *“a bipara is a woman who has given birth to
two children”* [syn: para]
2: (mathematics) a relation between a pair of integers: if both
integers are odd or both are even they have the same
parity; if one is odd and the other is even they have
different parity
3: (computer science) abit that is used in an error detection
procedure in which a 0 or 1 is added to each group of bits
so that it will have either an odd number of 1's or an
even number of 1's; e.g., if the parity is odd then any
group of bits that arrives with an even number of 1's must
contain an error [syn: parity bit, check bit]
4: (physics) parity is conserved in a universe in which the
laws of physics are the same in a right-handed system of
coordinates as in a left-handed system [syn: conservation of parity
, space-reflection symmetry, mirror symmetry]
5: functional equality

Definition: Parity
Parity *\Par"i*ty\*, n. [L. paritas, fr. par, paris, equal: cf. F.
parit['e]. See Pair, Peer an equal.]
1. The quality or condition of being equal or equivalent; a
like state or degree; equality; equivalence; close
correspondence; analogy; as, parity of reasoning. *“No
parity of principle.”* --De Quincey.
[1913 Webster]
Equality of length and parity of numeration. --Sir
T. Browne.
[1913 Webster]
2. Specifically: (Finance) Equivalence in value to the
currency of another country.
[PJC]
3. (Physics) A property assigned to elementary particles,
conceptualized as a form of symmetry, representing the
fact that no fundamental distinctions can be observed
between right-handed and left-handed systems of particles
in their interactions, and supported by the typical
observation that the total parity of a system is unchanged
as particles are created or annihilated; however, certain
interactions involving the weak force have been shown to
violate the principle of conservation of parity.
[PJC]
4. (Physics) A property of the wave function of a system,
which takes the value of +1 or -1, indicating whether the
value of the wave function changes sign if each of the
variables of the system is replaced by its negative.
[PJC]
5. (Med.) The condition of having borne a child or children,
alive or dead.
[PJC]
6. (Math.) The property of being even or odd; as, 3 has odd
parity, but 6 has even parity.
[PJC]
7. Hence: (Computers) The property of having an even or odd
number of bits set to the value of 1 (as opposed to 0); --
applied to bytes or larger groups of bits in a data
structure. It is used mostly in the process of parity checking
. The parity of a data structure can be changed
by changing the value of the parity bit.
[PJC]
