**Internal consistency**— In statistics and research, internal consistency is a measure based on the correlations between different items on the same test (or the same subscale on a larger test). It measures whether several items that propose to measure the same general… …72

**Causal consistency**— is one of the consistency models used in the domain of the concurrent programming (e.g in distributed shared memory, distributed transactions etc).A system provides causal consistency if writes that potentially are causally related are seen by… …73

**Release consistency**— is one of the consistency models used in the domain of the concurrent programming (e.g in distributed shared memory, distributed transactions etc). Systems of this kind are characterised by the existence of two special synchronisation operations …74

**Delta consistency**— is one of the consistency models used in the domain of parallel programming, for example in distributed shared memory, distributed transactions, and Optimistic replication The delta consistency model states that an update will propagate through… …75

**PRAM consistency**— (pipelined random access memory) also known as FIFO consistency , or Processor consistency .All processes see memory writes from one process in the order they were issued from the process. Writes from different processes may be seen in a… …76

**Eventual consistency**— is one of the consistency models used in the domain of parallel programming, for example in distributed shared memory, distributed transactions, and Optimistic replicationThe eventual consistency model states that, when no updates occur for a… …77

**Size consistency**— In quantum chemistry, size consistency (or strict separability) is a property that guarantees the consistency of the energy behavior when interaction between the involved molecular system is nullified (for example, by distance). Let A and B be… …78

**Robinson's joint consistency theorem**— is an important theorem of mathematical logic. It is related to Craig interpolation and Beth definability.The classical formulation of Robinson s joint consistency theorem is as follows:Let T 1 and T 2 be first order theories. If T 1 and T 2 are… …79

**Fisher consistency**— is a description of a statistical construct, used to describe probable outcomes within a certain set of consistent outcomes . [ cite journal|title=Fisher Consistency of AM Estimates of the Autoregression Parameter Using Hard Rejection Filter… …80
