  2. Abundance: In a chemical reaction, a reactant is considered to be in abundance if the quantity of that substance is high and virtually unchanged by the reaction. Abundance differs from excess in that a reactant in excess is simply any reactant other than the limiting reagent; the amount by which a reactant is in excess is often specified, such as with terms like "twofold excess", indicating that there is twice the amount of reactant necessary for the limiting reagent to be completely reacted. In this case, should the reaction go to completion, the quantity of the reactant in excess will have halved.
  3. Abundance is a Forth-inspired programming language for DOS, created by Roedy Green.
  4. Abundance economics deals with situations where there are more than enough resources for everyone. Such a situation is termed a post scarcity economy.
