 Orthogonal group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In even dimensions in characteristic 2 the orthogonal group is a subgroup of the symplectic group, because the symmetric bilinear form of the quadratic form is also an alternating form.
For the usual orthogonal group over the reals it is trivial, but it is often non-trivial over other fields, or for the orthogonal group of a quadratic form over the reals that is not positive definite.
As an algebraic group, an orthogonal group is in general neither connected nor simply-connected; the latter point brings in the spin phenomena, while the former is related to the discriminant.

 Orthogonal Persistence - TunesWiki
Orthogonal persistence is quite a natural concept, because this is exactly what people need when manipulating objects, as what counts to serious people is not (just) the fun they have during a computer session, but the work they accumulate during successive sessions.
But this is no particular disadvantage of orthogonal persistence as compared to other forms of explicit persistence, since all modern operating systems have just as much problem guaranteeing commitment of data in explicitly persistent databases, and require that a special procedure be called to ensure that buffers be flushed to disk during commits or shutdown.
Orthogonal persistence will change nothing about the advantages and intrinsic complexities of project management; what it will do is provide enhanced reliability through simpler and better factorized implementation, with system-side marshalling and error management.

 Encyclopedia :: encyclopedia : Empirical orthogonal functions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In statistics and signal processing, the method of empirical orthogonal functions is a decomposition of a signal or data set in terms of orthogonal basis functions which are determined from the data.
The ith basis function is chosen to be orthogonal to the basis functions from the first through i − 1, and to minimize the residual variance.
The method of empirical orthogonal functions is similar in spirit to harmonic analysis, but harmonic analysis typically uses predetermined orthogonal functions, for example, sine and cosine functions at fixed frequencies.

 Orthogonal Latin Squares
There are no orthogonal latin squares of order 2 because there are only two latin squares of order 2 in the same symbols and they are not orthogonal.
Orthogonal latin squares of order 5, or any odd order, on the other hand, are not so hard to find.
The diagonal sums are the same as those of the rows and columns because latin square A is orthogonal to both B and C, and one diagonal of A has all entries 0 and the other diagonal has all entries a+1.

 orthogonal - a definition from Whatis.com
Pascal is sometimes considered to be an orthogonal language, while C++ is considered to be a non-orthogonal language.
Orthogonal persistence is the quality of a programming system that allows a programmer to treat data similarly without regard to the length of time the data is kept in storage.
Using a programming system with orthogonal data persistence allows the programmer to treat data the same way regardless of its persistence characteristic, saving programming time and making it easier to enforce referential integrity (a type of constraint applied to ensure correct data validity).

N mutually orthogonal vectors span an N-dimensional vector space, meaning that, any vector in the space can be expressed as a linear combination of the vectors.
For example, in logic, the set of operators "not" and "or" is described as orthogonal, but the set "nand", "or", and "not" is not (because any one of these can be expressed in terms of the others).

 Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing - Free net encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), also sometimes called discrete multitone modulation (DMT), is a complex modulation technique for transmission based upon the idea of frequency-division multiplexing (FDM) where each frequency channel is modulated with a simpler modulation.
In OFDM the frequencies and modulation of FDM are arranged to be orthogonal witheach other which almost eliminates the interference between channels.
An OFDM carrier signal is the sum of a number of orthogonal sub-carriers, with baseband data on each sub-carrier being independently modulated commonly using some type of quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) or phase-shift keying (PSK).

 4.1.3 Orthogonal Components   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Orthogonal components are a special kind of composite states.
Orthogonal components belonging to the same (orthogonal or non-orthogonal) composite state are separated by dashed lines across the round-corner box of the composite state.
If a composite state has an orthogonal component as one of its children states, all its other children states must also be orthogonal components.

 Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Function - Summer Course
Classical orthogonal polynomials in one variable are the unique set of orthogonal polynomials in one variable which can be defined by a Rodrigues type formula.
Polynomials orthogonal with respect to a perturbation of certain classical weight functions by the addition of mass points at the end points of the interval $\Omega\subset\mathbb{R}$ are considered.
During the last decade there has been an intense activity in the study of the information entropies associated to the classical orthogonal polynomials, motivated by their relevance to quantum physics and their close relationship to other interesting mathematical objects, such as the $L^p$-norms or the logarithmic potentials of the polynomials.

 Orthogonal Arrays
The columns of the orthogonal array correspond to the different variables whose effects are being analyzed.
While there are nowadays other applications of orthogonal arrays in statistics (for example in computer experiments and survey sampling), the principal application is in the selection of level combinations for fractional factorial experiments.
Since the rows of an orthogonal array represent runs (or tests or samples) - which require money, time, and other resources - there are always practical constraints on the number of rows that can be used in an experiment.

 Jargon File 3.0.0 - orthogonal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Used in a generalization of its mathematical meaning to describe sets of primitives or capabilities that, like a vector basis in geometry, span the entire `capability space' of the system and are in some sense non-overlapping or mutually independent.
For example, in architectures such as the PDP-11 or VAX where all or nearly all registers can be used interchangeably in any role with respect to any instruction, the register set is said to be orthogonal.
Or, in logic, the set of operators `not' and `or' is orthogonal, but the set `nand', `or', and `not' is not (because any one of these can be expressed in terms of the others).

 Orthogonal Latin Square Designs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In the orthogonal version there is the additional stipulation that for each row sequence, as read from left to right, there must be a corresponding column sequence, as read from top to bottom.
Thus, in the present example, row 1 (A, B, C, D) is orthogonal with column 1 (A, B, C, D); row 2 (B, C, D, A) is orthogonal with column 2 (B, C, D, A); and so on.
The analysis of variance within an orthogonal Latin Square results in three F-ratios: one for the row variable, one for the column variable, and one for the third IV whose j levels are distributed orthogonally among the cells of the rows x columns matrix.

 Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (COFDM)
The property of orthogonality for communication signals means that signals that are orthogonal to each other can be transmitted together and they don't interfere with each other.
So having the subcarriers all orthogonal to one another (each subcarrier is orthogonal to all the other 1535 subcarriers) means that you can transmit the subcarriers in parallel and they won't interfere with each other.
To show why this retains orthogonality you have to consider that the OFDM signal consists of the addition of all the subcarrier signals, which are all at different frequencies f
