**noun** - plural: regularizations

- the condition of having been made regular (or more regular)
- lexical domain: States - nouns denoting stable states of affairs
- alternative spelling: regularisation
- more generic words: condition / status = a state at a particular time

- the act of bringing to uniformity; making regular
- lexical domain: Acts - nouns denoting acts or actions
- alternative spelling: regularisation
- synonym of regularization: regulation
- more generic word: control = the activity of managing or exerting control over something

### Alternative definition of the noun regularization

**noun**

- The act of making regular, of regularizing.

## Explanation

**Regularization**, in mathematics and statistics and particularly in the fields of machine learning and inverse problems, refers to a process of introducing additional information in order to solve an ill-posed problem or to prevent overfitting. This information is usually of the form of a penalty for complexity, such as restrictions for smoothness or bounds on the vector space norm.**Regularization**: In physics, especially quantum field theory, regularization is a method of dealing with infinite, divergent, and non-sensical expressions by introducing an auxiliary concept of a regulator. The correct physical result is obtained in the limit in which the regulator goes away, but the virtue of the regulator is that for its finite value, the result is finite.- also known as 正規化

**Regularization**: In linguistics, regularization is a phenomenon in language acquisition and language development, whereby irregular forms in morphology, syntax, etc., are replaced by regular ones. Examples are "gooses" instead of "geese" in child speech and replacement of the Middle English plural form for "cow", "kine", with "cows".
