 Ambient (music)
Ambient music is a loosely defined musical genre that incorporates elements of a number of different styles - including jazz, electronica, new age, modern classical music and even noise.
It was created way back in 1978, and although different artists had created ambient music before this, it was sort of a groundbreaking release in it's stark minimal-ness.
Eno's theory of the "discreet music" he called ambient was far from the modern chill-out room: the idea was that it should function at very low volumes, unobtrusively coloring the atmosphere of a room.

 World Wide Words: Ambient
So ambient music is strictly speaking wrong, as it refers to a style of music with textures but without a beat that aims to create a mood or atmosphere, an ambience in fact.
But when food technologists speak of ambient foods, they’re using the term as shorthand for ambient temperature foods (which makes my friend’s job ambient temperature foods stock control manager, which really is a mouthful).
You can argue they’re using the word correctly, since they’re speaking of foods that can be stored at the temperature of their surroundings in the store, without needing to be chilled, such as canned foods, jars of coffee, fresh fruit or bags of sugar.

Ambient music has a rhythmic or trance-like nature, with (generally) electronic keyboards and/or space music melodies or themes.
Today's ambient music, usually referred to as "New Ambient" or "Ambient Dub," means full of rhythms, for dance or trance, body movement or mind relaxation mode, and often sounds floaty or "groovy," with drop-out beats, tribal treats, ethno-primitive, textural and/or cyber-phonic music.
Ambient music grew into its own genre out of the "chill-out" rooms that became a part of the rave scene, a place to escape the pounding, throbbing techno beats (often in excess of 160-180beats per minute!), where DJ's mixed together nature sounds, New Age music tracks, and tape loops or other sound samples.

 Ambit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
With these motivations, we adopt a paradigm of mobility where computational ambients are hierarchically structured, where agents are confined to ambients and where ambient move under the control of agents.
Examples of ambients, in this sense, are: a web page (bounded by a file), a virtual address space (bounded by an addressing range), a Unix file system (bounded within a physical volume), a single data object (bounded by "self") and a laptop (bounded by its case and data ports).
In a realistic situation the true name of an ambient would be guarded very closely, and only specific capabilities would be handed out about how to use the name.

 ArtForum: Chill: the new ambient - ambient music
Where ambient techno is melodious (sometimes recalling program music or the naivete of a child's music box), isolationism favors musique concrete, dissonance, and microtonality; where ambient's sequencer bass patterns reassure, isolationism's loops tend to be unresolved, creating suspense; in place of ambient's halcyon reverb, isolationism uses an echo that is cavernous and metallic.
Unlike ambient techno (which models itself on that pseudowomb the flotation tank), isolationism's idea of utopia is empty space.
In another sense, the isolationist impulse, and its accompanying "face the future, brave the unknown!" rhetoric, may be a redirection, into inner space, of perennial male longings for the frontier, for a harsh, bracing wilderness fit for a rugged masculinity, and far from the soft options of domesticity.

 Ambient Occlusion
The ambient term adds a set value and color uniformly to the surface, ensuring no point on the object is fl.
Consequently, would be smarter to do a single ambient occlusion pass and then either bake it in as a texture or composite it in in post.
The ambient color pass either screens or overlays the diffuse pass, which in turn is multiplied by the occlusion pass.

 How to Determine Ambient Temperature Adjustment Factors for S&C Fuses
