Definition of the noun Aliasing

What does Aliasing mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: aliasings

  1. [signal processing, graphics, sound recording] Distortion caused by a low sampling rate, as Moire effect or stair-stepped edges.


"Aliasing" is a musical album of Manwe.

  • released on (6 years ago)


  1. Aliasing: In signal processing and related disciplines, aliasing is an effect that causes different signals to become indistinguishable when sampled. It also refers to the distortion or artifact that results when the signal reconstructed from samples is different from the original continuous signal.
    • also known as 混疊
  2. Aliasing: In computing, aliasing describes a situation in which a data location in memory can be accessed through different symbolic names in the program. Thus, modifying the data through one name implicitly modifies the values associated with all aliased names, which may not be expected by the programmer. As a result, aliasing makes it particularly difficult to understand, analyze and optimize programs. Aliasing analysers intend to make and compute useful information for understanding aliasing in programs.

Color aliasing is an artifact in which the color assigned to a vessel or part of a vessel is incorrect due to too high a velocity for the sampling rate of the color Doppler (Figs. S14-1 and S14-2). This is the most common artifact in color.
