In science:

At this abstract level, an engine is something with fuel, a ‘capacity’, some level of ‘compression’, and a cylinder block, crank shaft, piston and valves.
Towards an Intelligent Database System Founded on the SP Theory of Computing and Cognition
From the multiple alignment in Figure 5 we can infer that v4 has a cylinder block, crank shaft, pistons and valves, that the engine has a low compression, that the vehicle has 4 wheels, and so on.
Towards an Intelligent Database System Founded on the SP Theory of Computing and Cognition
In our example, the class ‘vehicle’ has parts such as ‘engine’, ‘steering wheel’, ‘seats’, and so on, and the ‘engine’ has parts such as ‘cylinder block’, ‘crank shaft’ etc.
Towards an Intelligent Database System Founded on the SP Theory of Computing and Cognition
We consider our four-dimensional cube of sidelength L (we will rather consider a cylinder in what follows), as a superposition of L three dimensional slices, and use our update blocking strategy to make the evolution of these slices independent.

For a suitably defined inner product on the space of conformal blocks, the resulting conformal field theory is wel l-defined, i.e., the amplitudes (10.2) are uniquely determined by the complex structure on Σ and do not depend on the choice of obtaining Σ by gluing from three-punctured spheres, caps and cylinders.
